Running your power washing business

Whether you’re just starting out or looking to grow, knowing how to run your business more efficiently for you and your customers is key to your success.

Here are some pressure washing trends to watch:

  1. Online booking. Businesses that offer online booking options receive up to 24% more customer calls. Let new customers request work on your website, social media, or right through Google search.
  2. Service price increases (or not). Home service material costs have come down around 10% in the past year, and the average service invoice sizes are also down. Since your profit margin could improve due to reduced costs, think twice about raising your prices this year. If you do decide to increase your prices, be sure to communicate to your customers properly.
  3. Packaged services. Grow your profits by packaging popular pressure washing services. You’ll increase your revenue by an average of 35% when you offer optional add-ons like soft washing, window cleaning, or deck and fence cleaning
  4. Digital marketing. For most home service industries, 55% of customers search for a business online before requesting a service. Use pressure washing ads to reach more customers online.
  5. Customer for reviews. 98% of people read online reviews for local businesses. Ask customers for a review once you’re finished their service.
  6. Online payment options. For home service providers, digital payments accounted for 40% of total payments collected in 2022. Offer clients convenient payment options to get paid faster and improve your customer’s experience.
