Your deck takes a lot of wear throughout the day. From hosting family and friends, having pets, moving furniture and plants, it’s easy to see why your deck can quickly look worn down and dirty. A routine cleaning and sealing will extend the life of a deck and will make your outdoor zone gleam. When it comes to your deck, you want it in great shape to preserve the life of the deck and protect your investment, health, and value of your home.
Why professional deck cleaner?
While you may think that your deck doesn’t need special care, you want to consider what it is made of. Wood in its natural state is protected by the bark, but the wood used in your deck construction is not. That is why it is important to have a local deck cleaning company to seal and protect the wood on your deck to give it added life for years to come. Without proper sealing and care, the wood is open to the elements allowing damage to occur such as rotting, entry of water that can cause the wood to crack, and other wearing that will decrease the life of your deck. Staining the wood can also really enhance the look of the natural wood grain making it aesthetically appealing.
Professional deck cleaning benefits:
If a deck is not cleaned and sealed properly, it can dramatically decrease the life of the deck and cause extra maintenance in the future. Pinpoint Maintenance’s deck cleaning and sealing service can give you quality work that will add years of life to your deck. From cleaning to sealing, getting quality work is essential to giving you an outdoor space that you can enjoy for a long time.
Deck Cleaning & Sealing Steps:
- During our first visit, we pre condition your deck with a specialized wood stripping (if necessary) & cleaning solution that will emulsify and breakdown soils and stains common to exterior decks so that they can then be cleaned away using low pressure high volume washing.
After the cleaning, we apply a product that will brighten the wood and also neutralize the pH. Neutralizing the pH helps to ensure that the stain we use forms the best possible bond with the wood.
After the deck has dried (weather pending), we come back and sand the horizontal surfaces. This not only removes imperfections in the wood and reveals a fresh layer, but also opens up the pores of the wood so that the wood will readily accept the stain.
Lastly, we stain your deck using an oil based semi transparent product called TWP (Total Wood Protection) that has a natural finish and exposes all of the wood grain. If your deck has a solid stain, we apply a primer so the new coat of solid stain gets the best possible bond and then apply the solid stain.
