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. Wood decks are subject to the damaging effects of weather, so it’s critical to have your deck cleaned and sealed on a regular basis. If you’re an inexperienced pressure washer, you could damage your deck.
A poorly maintained deck quickly turns grey in color as it deteriorates due to dirt, mold, and algae, gradually tearing apart the surface of the wood. Soon splinters form, creating a rougher surface even more inviting to dirt and grime.
