    I am fairly new to the pressure washing game. I picked up a cheap one from aldi. £200. I have earned that back straight away. I done a bit of research on how much to charge and you just need to think about how long it will take, how much sand you will need and how long putting that down will take and also how much of a hassle it it going to be. I got called out last Sunday for the next morning to remove some paint from a wall. Took me 4-5 hours with travelling and charged £200. Only a small section. I was home by 1

    The guy I was working with that day bought some brick and patio cleaner to get the paint off. But for drives etc, I don't think it's necessary dependant on the type of machine you get and how powerful it is. Hopefully some others on here with a bit more experience will be able to enlighten you on that subject :)
