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, and 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 gray in color as it deteriorates due to dirt, mold, and algae, gradually tearing apart the surface of the wood.
Preventing this type of situation is easy if you keep your deck treated with a professional grade deck stain or wood deck sealing product. 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 washer to remove the dirt, grime, and soil that has been imbedded deep into the wood’s grain.
To prevent unnecessary repairs, your deck should only be trusted to a professional wood cleaning contractor. Deck & Drive Solutions will not only restore your deck to like-new condition, but you can rest assured that the work will be done correctly and without the worry of damage, providing for years of future enjoyment.
