  1. Sweep up debris. Use a broom to clear away debris and dirt.
  2. Cover doors and painted surfaces. Protect doors and painted surfaces with a plastic sheet.
  3. Degrease your concrete. Spray your concrete with degreaser and use a stiff brush to scrub it in.
  4. Prep your power washer. Attach your hose to the power washer.
  5. Add your detergent. Turn on the water and add your detergent to the pressure washer.
  6. Clean your concrete. Spray the concrete using a side-to-side motion.
  7. Let the detergent soak. Let the soap sit for five minutes.
  8. Rinse your concrete. Spray off the soap with water.

How much does it cost to rent a power washer? That’ll depend on the model you’re going to need. Expect to pay an hourly or daily fee anywhere from $20 to $300 depending on whether it is a hot water or heavy-duty model.
