Few things are more satisfying than watching stubborn dirt and stains disappear from homes, driveways and decks. Yet, if an accident occurs, your business may be financially responsible. That’s why you must factor Pressure Washing Insurance into your business budget. On average, Pressure Washing Insurance costs about $103 per month. Let’s polish the details.

How much does Pressure Washing Insurance cost?

The most significant variable that influences the cost of Pressure Washing Insurance is the type of policy you need. At a minimum, every pressure washing business needs general liability insurance.

Most pressure washers’ schedules are dependent on seasonality. With that in mind, paying for liability insurance annually isn’t ideal when you don’t work 365 days a year. Wouldn’t it be great to only pay for insurance when you’re on the clock? We agree! That’s why you can buy Pressure Washing Insurance by the job. Purchase coverage when you need it, whether it’s for a few hours, days, a week, or a month.

Here are the average costs of insurance for pressure washers with Thimble:


General liability insurance protects you from the financial impact of damage to other people’s property, but not to your equipment. That’s why many pressure washers also choose to purchase equipment insurance, or what we call Business Equipment Protection.

What factors influence Pressure Washer Insurance cost?

No two pressure washing businesses are the same. A large commercial pressure washing company will encounter different levels of risk compared to a solo driveway or deck cleaning operation. As a result, the costs for pressure washing business insurance will differ depending on a few key factors:

Business location

The location of your business can impact your insurance cost. For example, a more densely packed area tends to increase the risk of property damage or a bodily injury occurring.

Policy length

The amount of time you need coverage, whether for an hour, day, week or month, impacts your insurance premium.

Crew size

Whether you’re a solo operation or have employees can affect your premium. More employees mean increased opportunities for a power washing accident to occur.

Amount of coverage needed

Higher coverage limits will come at an increased cost. But by paying more upfront, you will have greater protection in the event of a claim. With Thimble, choose between a $1 million or $2 million liability coverage limit for pressure washers general liability coverage. And for equipment coverage, we provide coverage limits of $1,000 or $2,500 each with a $500 per loss deductible.

Coverage add-ons

It may make sense for your pressure washing business to add additional coverages to your policy. Business Equipment Protection, for example, can save you the out-of-pocket costs associated with replacing your equipment in the event of theft or loss — and it starts at just $6 per month.

What other types of insurance should pressure washing businesses have?

Coverage on all fronts is a good idea. In addition to Pressure Washer Business Insurance, consider:
