Timber decks have become a very popular, low-cost way to add living space to a home and provide a great space to relax, entertain friends, or enjoy outdoor dining. However, like all wood surfaces, they need to be properly maintained. Because wood decks are subject to the damaging effects of weather, it is critical to have your deck cleaned and sealed on a regular basis.
A poorly maintained deck quickly turns grey in colour as it deteriorates due to dirt, mould, and algae, gradually tearing apart the surface of the wood. Soon splinters form, creating a rougher surface even more inviting to dirt and grime.
Preventing this type of situation is easy if you keep your deck treated with a professional grade deck staining or wood deck sealing product that has been applied properly. But before you purchase a wood sealer from your local home improvement store, you should know that sealing decks is only one part of what it takes to do the job properly. Before deck stains or sealers are applied, the wood needs to thoroughly washed and cleaned with a pressure cleaner to remove the dirt, grime, and soil that has been imbedded deep into the wood’s grain. For most homeowners (and inexperienced professionals), using a pressure cleaner on wood can be very difficult. It is very easy to damage your deck inadvertently.
To prevent unnecessary repairs, your deck should only be trusted to a professional wood cleaning contractor – a contractor that professionally pressure cleans or strips your deck’s existing finish, uses cleaners that are safe around your plants and landscaping, properly neutralizes and brightens your deck, and applies a sealer that will be effective in preventing future deterioration.
