March 5, 2010, Newsletter Issue #208: Elements to Consider When Starting a Pressure Washing Business

Tip of the Week

Your best bet before you jump into your new venture is to conduct as much research as you can. Talk to other people in the pressure washing business, suppliers and potential clients to determine the market and what your position in it will be.

Assess the type of applications that are in demand and what type of services you will be able to offer. Assess the costs of the equipment you need. Make sure you are buying the right pressure washers, cleaners and attachments for the jobs you take on.

At the start up level, you are likely to be wearing many hats at the same time. Managing a pressure washing business will require of you a wide set of skills including marketing, sales, record keeping, equipment selection, employee relations, and pricing of projects. It will require a great deal of dedication and time.

If you have a family, make sure everyone is onboard and understands the demands that you are about to face and that they share your vision for a prosperous future. The more you know before you start the better your chances of making it through the first tender years of a new business.
