# Cleaning a Driveway

BRILLIANT! Saw this reading the thread, and hope you might council about measuring using Google maps?

So for those of us who are slow learners, in one minute, we are multiplying what specifically by 60? The total square feet? And what is the three that we are dividing by?

**Power.Wash.It**#104

Iโm guessing the divide by 3 equals 1/3 of your time is spent on the cleaning and the other 2/3 on the rinse and moving equipment

I think Iโm just thinking too hardโฆim math illiterate unless itโs stupified for me.

So, just for craps and giggles:

10 square feet in 1 min x 60 = 600 (so 600 sqft/hr?)

600/3 = 200?..200 what?

**MrSparkleVA**#106

If it takes you an hour to surface clean 600 sq ft, youโll spend about 2 hours rinsing, for a total of three hours. Ridiculously hypothetical, of course, unless youโre using an electric toy with the tiny turbo nozzle

I must concur that I spend twice as much time rinsing as I do surface cleaning,
