You can find a lot of previous responses to pressure washing technique and cost questions in the Home > Pressure Washing link in Browse Projects, at lower left.

Varies a LOT by area and by vendor - in my area (moderately high cost area) I have seen all types of prices from about $0.17- $1.00/SF of surface area being cleaned, and all types of quality of work - and little correllation between price and quality, as some of the highest priced self-proclaimed "Pressure Washing Professionals" have done the worst jobs. In some areas, based the responses in the link above, prices run as low as $0.08-0.15/SF from some vendors, so you will have to screen vendors and select several with excellent reviews to give you a bid to see what the "fair price" for your structure is.

Also - there is a big difference between a so-called "soft wash" cleaning, and a prep-for-painting job, which for the latter if it does not involve hands-on scrubbing should not be expected to give the best quality paint job. Generally about a 50-100% difference in cost between the two. Also, masonry and stone walls are generally harder to clean well so tend to take longer and cost more than painted surfaces.

IF you happen to mean a floor or patio rather than exterior walls, using a rotary pressure washing "floor cleaner" (though rarely used indoors except for garage shop or warehouse or fire engine bays and skating rinks and such that are fully curbed and were designed to be hosed down), around $0.25-0.50/SF seems to be the normal range. For interior jobs that would NOT include any moving around of stuff - assumes area is wide open and fully accessible for the cleaning.
