I’m considering starting a power/pressure washing business in an area with a population of almost 400,000 people. I would do commercial and residential. Sidewalks, home siding, driveways, parking lots, windows, roofing, etc. I have $10,000 to start up.
With proper advertising, is this business a money maker? I have business experience.
How does the reclaim system work? (System to be compliant with city pollution ordinances)
Any general tips? I’m scared to invest in this only to fail.
Also, what suggestions on a rig? I’m thinking roughly 2,000psi 4-5GPM hot/cold. 200 gallon tank. Return tank for reclaim. All mounted to a trailer behind truck.
Theres a lot of information out there. I see a ton of “correct” and “should work” information. But as somebody coming from the nursing field, I prefer the most correct and proven methods/setups. I admit, maybe I’m taking the lazy route. I mostly see discussions between those in the profession. I dont know the first thing besides power washing my own properties with a small unit and that takes forever. I just need proper guidance.
Donut, I try reading up as much as possible. But theres a lot of conflicting information. I see success and failure stories all over and seems to be 50/50. But nobody really divulges why they did to be successful, or what they didnt do to fail. I dont want to fall in the failing statistic.
Couple things, Wichita KS requires water reclamation?
Also check around for competition, if the market is saturated with cleaners you’ll have a tough time.
May want to find a used setup, plenty out there for sale. Probably not a good idea to offer all those services right off the bat, I’ve been at it since September and I still don’t quite have the hang of the basics like housewashing and concrete.
