Deck Cleaning and Maintenance

Sun, rain, wind and water all conspire to destroy your deck finishes and wood base. Only by the regular application of an approved substrate, can ongoing destruction be prevented and curtailed. Edge clean professionals have developed a process for not only revitalizing worn and deteriorating finishes, but they have also developed a procedure for keeping your deck looking its best years into the future.

Heavy industrial pressure washers on ‘full blast’ may be the right approach for cleaning concrete, or brickwork, but definitely the wrong approach for revitalizing decks. Strong pressure raises the wood fibres and over soaks your wood base. Totally unnecessary. Hot water is unnecessary as well, as cool water does a better job at revitalizing your wood and removing all mildew, dirt and loose debris.

Once your deck is free of surface dirt, a PH neutral liquid cleaning agent is used to prepare the surface for the seal coat. The seal coat will keep your deck looking new, as well as protect it from the sun’s destructive UV rays.

It’s important to choose a sealer that will not only give UV protection, but repel water as well as provide a level of protection against mildew occurrence. Clear finishes are very preferable today, but do not do as good a job as their tinted cousins and opaque surface finishes. If your deck surface is exposed to harsh sunlight, it may be more prudent to choose an opaque finish to protect the wood. As a homeowner you must compromise on what is desired more. A superb natural look, or a longer period between seal coats. Edge Clean can apply the chosen finish for you.

If you chose to apply your sealer finish yourself after our pressure washing services, here are a few tips:

If you are going to apply a sealer at the end of the season, wait for a nice weather forecast to do it. This is because most sealers will require a 24-48 hour drying period and you don’t want to ruin your freshly applied top coat.

Tips

  • Read manufacturer’s application instructions first
  • Test stain in an inconspicuous place first. Let dry, and view results
  • Mix half empty containers with new cans to maintain colour consistency
  • Make sure all wood is thoroughly dry before application, especially with darker stains
  • Clear coats may dry darker than expected. Once again, check in an inconspicuous area before application.
