One of the most common jobs that we do at DPI Pressure Washing in Clearwater is pressure washing driveways. First impressions are important. When someone visits your property for the first time, the driveway is one of the first things that they see.
An ugly driveway with embedded dirt, stains from oil products and other automotive products can leave a bad impression. However, many people put off power washing for years because they think it’s expensive.
Power Washing Your Driveway is Economical
The basic cost to pressure wash your driveway is less than you think. Total cost depends on a number of factors, including the square footage of the area to be cleaned as well as what type of cleaning agents we use to make the surface look like it is brand new.
Generally, you can expect a driveway that is about 500 square feet in size to cost approximately $75 to $95. This price encompasses about one hour of work by our professionals who will apply a cleaner via light brushing to the surface to loosen dirt and grime, followed by complete power washing.
If your driveway has heavy stains from oil or its square footage is considerably larger you can expect to pay more. Prominent mold and mildew on the surface can also drive up the cost as heavy staining from chemicals and organic matter can often take longer to remove, resulting in higher labor costs.

How Often Should I Pressure Wash My Driveway?
Once you realize how quick, easy and inexpensive pressure washing is, you’ll want to do it periodically to keep the surface of your driveway in top condition. DPI recommends pressure washing your driveway about once a year to keep it looking great. By performing a thorough cleaning on a regular basis, you’ll avoid the build-up that comes with neglecting the task. Your overall costs will be less expensive too as our staff will not have to spend as much time on the job.
Should I Seal My Driveway Following a Power Wash?
In short, it's a good idea to apply a sealing agent on your driveway if you're up for the extra money. The main purpose of applying a sealant is to protect the surface from chemical leaks and other spill s as well as from weather. It will also extend the life of its surface, while enhancing your property's curb appeal. Most of our customers opt for sealing their driveway when it has pavers. If you have a paved driveway, it makes sense to seal the surface after a thorough pressure washing to protect the valuable stone and its appearance. This is one of the things that make your property pop out.
However, when it comes to concrete driveways, many homeowners choose to not seal them, though it could be done. The extra costs would be minimum $0.5 per soft of concrete, so that sealing a 500-square-foot driveway would be $250. For us, another advantage of seal coating the surface is that our professionals will have an easier time power washing it next time, resulting in even further savings for you.
Other Considerations When Pressure Washing Your Driveway
How much it costs to power wash your driveway also depends on the type of surface you have. Concrete is the most common type of surface with which DPI Pressure Washing deals, but we also clean other types of decorative surfaces such as asphalt, pavers, brick, cobblestone and more. Our staff handles all of these types of surfaces differently to ensure your complete satisfaction.
