Lawn & Garden – Deck Maintenance – Wash & Repair

To get your deck ready for a fresh new coat of stain for deck maintenance, you will want to get started on your deck cleaning and your deck repair. Look over your deck and remove rotted boards. Replace the missing boards with new wood, using a circular saw, and 3” deck screws. These are easy repairs to make, but if you are not comfortable doing the repairs on your own, contact a local carpenter how has deck maintenance experience. To begin your deck maintenance and deck cleaning, start by sweeping off your deck. Use a cleaning agent and roll this cleaner onto your deck with a paint roller. Once the cleaning agent begins to sink in, use a scrub brush to clean the surface. After your deck cleaning with a brush, take a high pressure spray nozzle and hose and power wash your deck. Power wash along the grain of the wood to help remove the grime. After washing the deck, apply a wood brightener, which will help neutralize the wood, and prepare the wood for stain. Once you have washed and repaired your deck, you should let it dry before sanding and staining.
