Best Practices for Power Washing Your Wood Deck
You spend a lot of time on your wood deck; of course you want it to look its best. One of the most important wood deck maintenance tasks you can follow is that of regular power washing. Ideally, you should have your deck power washed at least once a year by an experienced professional.
Benefits of Power Washing Your Deck
Over time, dirt and other debris can accumulate on your deck. Regular sweeping can get rid of some of this debris, but some dirt and grime can penetrate into the wood and be more difficult to remove. By power washing your deck, you can get rid of this set-in dirt and give your wooden deck new life.
Likewise, having your deck power washed at least once a year can help to remove unsightly algae or even mildew/mold that has a tendency to grow in areas that don't receive much sunlight.
Planning to paint or stain your deck in the near future? A thorough power wash is an important first step for cleaning and preparing the wood to readily accept a paint or stain.
Why Hire a Professional?
Power washing your deck is not something you should attempt yourself. Hiring a professional is the best way to ensure that your deck is power washed properly and thoroughly. And because power washing equipment can be very powerful, hiring a pro saves you from accidentally damaging your deck with a DIY job.
