As the weather continues to improve, more and more people are tackling the outdoor maintenance projects. After enduring the winter, people are likely to notice the deck’s current state. Where some cases call for more serious maintenance, such as refinishing and repair work, everyone should ensure it is efficiently cleaned and sanitized. The decks integrity is enhanced with the necessary power washing treatment. Though some may view it as a luxury, or something only part of the refinishing process, power washing is an important aspect of maintenance that should be done at least once a year. The deck is left more susceptible to damage over time when the deck is not properly maintained. With this in mind, we at Woodedge Powerwashing would like to further elaborate on the benefits of pressure washing your deck.
Power Washing Reduces Damage to Deck
The deck undergoes a lot of stress as it ages, including enduring the foot traffic, extreme weather, temperature changes, and other abuse. The surface boards are likely to experience mold growth with right conditions common in the New York area. With these various elements that negatively impact the deck, you can expect damage to emerge. Additionally, decks that are cracked or unstained are particularly porous and will collect a number of dirt, debris, and microbe growth. When this is evident, a pressure cleaning from a dependable professional can ensure the deck is completely cleaned and sanitized, and if need be, prepped for re-staining. With a proper finish to the deck following a thorough pressure washing, you can better protect your deck from the elements and extend the condition, health, and lifespan of the deck.
Pressure Cleaning Deck Increases Home Value
An old, worn deck is an eye-sore and a cleaned, well-maintained deck just completes the exterior presentation. A valuable asset in making the home more attractive and boost the value, pressure washing the deck is not only good for maintenance, but also preparing the house for the market as well.
Clean Exterior Deck is a Healthier Environment
Not only can you prevent damage with pressure cleaning the deck, but you can ensure the area is healthy. Removing remnants of pest activity, polluted residues, layers of allergens, and potential microbe growth immediately makes the area healthy, especially beneficial for those that spend time on the deck.
Pressure Wash a Deck Before Staining
As mentioned, the deck needs to be re-finished from time to time. In order to ensure quality results, after the sanding, you have a detailed pressure washing service to ensure all of the sanding particles, lingering stain remnants, and other debris is completely cleaned away before you can stain. Obviously, wait until the surface is completely dry, but making sure the deck is power washed first can maximize the outcome of your project.
