Why is there a minimum charge of $125 for residential work?
The residential minimum ensures that the costs and time Luke's Pressure Washing spends while completing a job is properly compensated for. The $125 minimum charge for services applies when any service(s) ordered does not exceed $125. For example, when a customer orders just a driveway cleaning ($90 value), the charge will be $125. However, if a customer orders a combination of services totaling over $125, like both a driveway and patio cleaning worth ($90+$99=$189), then the charge will be a simple combination of the prices shown below.

Good question, it's important to keep the big picture in mind. Your property's exterior is like a car.

We recommend that residential customers have their driveway and house serviced every spring and patios serviced twice a year, for the spring and holiday seasons. We recommend commercial customers settle on a regular maintenance schedule with us that meets the specific needs for that property. Regardless, when you hire us you're paying for quality. The professional cleaning your property is getting from us will last a lot longer than if a non-professional cleaned it.
