    Hi all,

    Ive got to price for my first small pressure washing job, and could do with a bit of advice please. Ive no idea how long it will take me to be honest!

    It consists of a 2-3 slab wide path all round the property, what I think is a resin type drive that has been dirtied by building work, and a patio.[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Can you give me a clue on pricing? also any other tips would be great.

    Whats the process for that then, wet the surrounding areas, apply & scrub hypo mix, dwell for 20 minutes and rinse off?

    Will there be a problem rinsing hypo into the garden after?

    Do you just rinse it off with the hose?

    Does it smell?

    sorry for all the questions lol
