Deck Cleaning is a necessary part of the kiwi way of life. Kiwi’s love the outdoor lifestyle, whether it’s summer, autumn, winter or spring, endless hours are spent entertaining, barbecuing or simply relaxing with friends and family outside on the deck.
Using the appropriate deck cleaning methods can bring your timber decking back to life so that you can truly enjoy your outdoor areas.
Deck Cleaning requires the right equipment, training, and processes to ensure moss, mold, and lichens are properly removed. There is a wide variety of different timbers used for decking here in Auckland and each has its own unique characteristics requiring a different method of deck cleaning to get the best results.
Some may just need some gentle water blasting while others may require some added elbow grease and the appropriate environmentally friendly cleaning products to get the job done correctly. Either way, you need to recognise the type of timber and the best method to achieve the desired results.
Decking looks best when the surface is kept clean. Just as you regularly clean floors inside your home, your decks should be swept regularly to help keep the surface clean. How often you do that should be based on how much organic debris ends up on your deck due to overhanging or nearby vegetation.
Regularly sweeping your deck and periodically washing any dirt and debris from the surface, with a garden hose will help to make sure that twigs, leaves or other foreign matter do not build up between the decking timbers.
Mould, mildew, bacteria and lichens may develop on the deck if the surface is not kept clean. This can also lead to the deck becoming dangerously slippery when wet.
Best way to keep your outdoor areas safe, clean and lasting longer is by having AWL complete a full deck cleaning and treatment. Once that is done, treating the area once or twice a year will keep it looking great and prolong the time between washes.
It’s easy to overlook outdoor areas until it becomes a huge task. Stains become harder to remove and irreparable damage can start to occur. Let Us Take Care Of It For You
