You can get a "decent" pressure washer for about 200 bucks or less.
Add the detergents and you'd still save money, if you could do it yourself, or maybe hire a couple of Teens to do it.
The price maybe high for a few reasons:
1]Did it include clean up.
2]Insurance to cover any damage they may do while cleaning the house.
3]Are they spraying around windows? Were they going to check the windows to make sure they would seal tight so no water got inside the house?
Things like that, plus padding the bill.
Some valid points
1) I would think any cleaning service would inherently include clean up haha
2) Not sure
3) No windows, just the exterior vinyl siding.
I would have to recheck the insurance thing, but the website made no mention of it, nor did the estimate that was emailed to me. It just seemed like a ridiculous overpriced estimate that was likely inflated due to the livingsocial coupon. There's another livingsocial coupon out there I saw today for power wash for $45 ($90 value), that includes homes up to 1800sq ft. That's what had me initially thinking I was getting ripped off.
What a waste of money to buy that deal. Predatory marketing to lure people in to buy the coupon and inflate the price of service to reduce loss. Now I know to avoid service deals for the future, unless it's inclusive of the service, not applied towards the service fee.
