Getting Your Deck Ready For Summer

Summer is upon us, and with it comes enjoying the gorgeous Australian weather. From outdoor parties and picnics, to evenings spent on your deck enjoying the cool breeze. And while having a deck is an invaluable addition to many homes, they are subject to constant wear and tear from the elements. 

This daily exposure causes your decking to look tired, dull and overgrown with lichen, moss and dirt. Although decking is durable, it requires regular maintenance and cleaning to keep it looking and functioning at its best. To restore your decking to its former glory, here are some tips for getting your deck ready for summer!

Cleaning and Washing Furniture

While outdoor furniture is designed to be durable, being exposed to the sun, rain and win can cause them to wear out more quickly. By cleaning outdoor furniture, you can quickly restore and give them new life for summer. Some pieces may have tough stains and marks, which can be removed with additional scrubbing and appropriate detergents. For any furniture that is in a state of disrepair can be discarded and replaced.

Give A Good Sweep

Once the deck furniture is clean, loose dirt, dust and debris will have collected on your deck. Not only does this remove loose dirt, sticks and leaves, but this prepares the surface for more thorough cleaning such a pressure washing.

Power Wash Your Surface

The next step is arguably the most crucial step in deck maintenance – pressure cleaning. Pressure cleaning is a quick and easy way to refresh and restore your deck without replacing it.

Many homeowners believe that pressure cleaning is a simple process and can easily be DIY-ed. However, pressure cleaning is best left to the professionals who have the necessary skills, experience and equipment to achieve the best results. They are able to safely remove any remaining dirt, dust, mould and mildew from the surface of your deck. Not only does this look good, but eliminating this build-up protects your deck from rotting, moisture and overall damage.

Sealing Your Deck

To make the most of your refreshed deck it is recommended that it be re-sealed. Sealing your deck means that you are protecting it from the elements, keeping it looking better for longer and extending its lifespan. When a high-quality sealant is applied, it penetrates deep into the surface of your deck and forms a protective layer that protects the deck from moisture and moss build-up.
