Not even a little fish in industry :)

Hello Cleaningtalik community.

I want to start a bussiness like most of you guys have .
Why ?
1. Big fan of Dirty Jobs ( this ideea came from Gumbusters episodes )
1.Because this kind of job gives me satisfaction,it's like an adiction to pop out pimples and blackheads .
2. In my country ( RO , Europe ) are not many companies that can provide this type of service .-- Here are just two firms:Falch representative that provide equipment and another one that can provide this kind of service but they are more involved in glass / mechanical parts sandin
3. I wanna stop working for somebody's dream and start build mine .

What is my knowledge ?
Absolute 0 ( one time vacum water based cleaner for my car interior i'm not counting ) .
That's why I really appreciate your posts here and I'm reading everything I can to catch up .
I've worked at my dad's construction company and I've learned a few things about all types of house exterior.

What I'm aiming at ?
Sidewalks , parking lots, commercial entrances for stores, public parks,child playgrounds, every job i can do it .

What I can bring into this bussiness ?
My personal car and every saving that i can make until Marc-April 2017
A nice website that i will create with my colleague to be on the first results on google searches.

In this section [ Exterior Cleaning and Restoration - pressure washing ] most of the topics are from year 2011 - 2008 and i don't want to learn something that is already obsolete .
I want to know what is the minimum budget I should have to get it running [ I'm 22 y.o and making around 600-700$ now / month), any good class materials that I could get online, any youtube channels that would provide valuabe information about equipment and handling equipment AND IF YOU HAVE TIME some personal recomandations about what GEAR i should buy to get on my feet.

I know that nothing is for free and my personal input that i can bring is IT support ( 3 years of exp in a company ), if you have any kind of problems give me a PM, i would help you with pleasure.

Sorry for my english level, hope that this content make some sense )
Thanks for your guidelines and time.

I agree with the online Pressure Washing school. I'm currently going through it and the material is top notch. I highly recommend it for those who are starting out.
