Everyone who owns a pressure washer knows the satisfaction of watching grime disappear in perfect stripes on the deck, sidewalk and driveway as you go — making money while doing it, however, is even more satisfying.
“One of the best summer side hustles going is becoming a professional power washer,” said Kieran MacRae, who blogs about projects and personal improvement. “All you need to get started is the pressure washer, which will cost around $500, then you can charge people $50 per hour to clean up their driveways.”
Just about anyone with a power washer can start making money with almost no other investment or skill.
“Very little technique is involved, but the value you bring is they only have to pay $50 instead of $500 for their own machine,” MacRae said. “A little practice on your own house and maybe a couple of neighbors as a freebie and you’re good to go.”
