Normally Pressure Washing companies would be your Search the List category for this - though you have to keep a close look that they don't jet water into the soffit vents, into eave openings into the attic if no soffit covers, or up under the siding because that can cause mildew and mold in those enlosed areas, and in large quantities as I have seen before (with contractors using a jet rather than a fan spray) put enough water into eaves or under siding to cause water damage inside the house.

Preparatory to painting washing is commonly, though not always, done by the painter - and on dirty siding or paint in poor condition takes a good deal more handwork or power sanding to prep the surface for painting than just a "soft wash" - generally a "soft wash" which is basically just spray with detergent then wash it off will remove a lot of dirt, but without scrubbing with a brush (and any scraping /sanding needed for peeling or blistered paint) a good deal of the dirt stays on the surface and prevents proper paint bonding or eventually bleeds through and discolors the paint.
