Maximizing profits for pressure washing

In this video, Jason Geiman from King of Pressure Wash interviews Chris Johnson from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Chris is an expert in exterior cleaning, pavers, sand and sealing, gutter installation, and Christmas light installation. He has been in the business since 2006 and is on track to close between $750,000 to $1 million this year to close between $200,000 to $300,000 in net profit.


Jason and Chris discuss the challenges of starting a pressure washing business, including the struggle to make money and grow the business. Chris shares his journey from making only $7,000 in 2006 to doubling his earnings in 2007 but still struggling to make a living. He went on to have a corporate career but continued pressure washing on the side until he finally decided to go full-time in 2019.

The two also touch on the importance of automation in customer service and the book of the week, "How to Win Friends and Influence People" by Dale Carnegie. Jason interacts with viewers throughout the video and answers questions about pressure washing and business growth.


I left my Pepsi job on March 8th, 2019, and started a pressure washing business. I had saved up enough money and paid off all my debt, so I felt confident in making it work. During my first year in business, I made over $100,000 and learned much about pricing and marketing.

One of the biggest challenges in going full-time in any business is having enough money to feed yourself and still having enough left over to invest in the industry. This is where having a solid financial foundation and debt-free comes in handy. I could live off of $200 a day, which gave me more breathing room and the ability to focus on growing my business.

Mindset is also a critical factor in success. Many people who start a business have a poor mindset, which prevents them from reaching their full potential. It would help if you believed in yourself and your worth to communicate that value to your customers. This means having confidence in your pricing and knowing that you are offering a valuable service.

I shifted my mindset by surrounding myself with people who encouraged me, pushed me out of my comfort zone, and taught me about my value as a business owner. This was a key factor in my ability to raise my prices and take on bigger jobs.

To truly understand your worth, you need to believe in your product. If you don't believe in your product, your customers won't either. You need to understand the value you are offering and communicate that to your customers through your body language and confidence.

In this business, it's important to remember that the worth is in what you give. You are offering a service that will last for months or even years, and that is where the real value lies. You need to believe in your product and sell the experience of what you believe in.

Finally, it's essential to be open to learning and growing. Just because you have been doing something one way for a long time doesn't mean there isn't room for improvement. Don't be afraid to try new things and learn new skills. This will not only help you grow your business, but it will also keep you motivated and engaged.

In conclusion, going full-time in any business is challenging, but you can succeed with the proper financial foundation, mindset, and belief in your product. Remember to believe in yourself and your worth, surround yourself with positive and supportive people and stay open to learning and growth.
