A TIKTOK influencer raised $500 just by washing a driveway for a few hours.
Biaheza’s 12,000 follower TikTok explores various side activities and ways to earn extra money.
The gigs featured on his page include everything from day trading to setting up Christmas lights.
In this video, he held a gig to pressure wash the driveway and siding of a garage.
If you don’t own a pressure washer, it will cost you money to hire one.
The Sun found that you can rent an electric pressure washer from Home Depot for $47 a day.
Biaheza ended up being so happy with the gig that he joked that he might stop posting for a while – at least on one platform – to do it more often.
“If I disappear from YouTube and stop uploading for a while, I’m probably pressure washing.”
After receiving a quick tutorial on how a pressure washer works, he brought it to the job site.
The only problem was when he got there he forgot how to turn on the washer.
Yet once he figured out he had to hit the on/off switch, the rest of the job was a breeze, except for a visit from an unwanted guest.
“I had this altercation with a wasp’s nest.”
After navigating the wasps, he carefully cleaned each side, making sure to modify the pressure tip so as not to damage the coating material.
He then turned his attention to the driveway itself.
Here he could really increase the pressure, digging deep into every crevice.
“That part was really satisfying,” he said.
Biaheza was hired separately for the two jobs: $200 for the paving and $250 for the driveway.
But, when it came time to collect, his employer only had hundreds and Biaheza had no change, so he took home $500.
Remember that any additional income must be reported to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or you may face hefty penalties at tax time.
