It’s no surprise that through years of weather and use, your deck is bound to age. Not only is it subjected to constant outdoor elements, it’s a frequented area that endures a lot of usage from you and your family. An accumulation of dirt, growths of moss, or a faded stain color are all signs that it might need a proper clean. Because decks are often made with softer materials that are prone to maturing at a faster rate, they need consistent maintenance to retain their natural beauty. If you’re noticing some evident wear and are unsatisfied with its current condition, you might consider hiring a professional cleaning company to pressure wash your deck.
While it can be a safe option, there are a few things to consider before choosing to pressure wash. Pressure washing is extremely powerful, so it’s often reserved for outdoor surfaces like concrete or stone, as these materials are tough enough to withstand the high-powered intensity without suffering any damage. Materials like those used for porches and decks are usually less robust, sometimes requiring a gentler treatment to keep them protected. Each home is unique, so you’ll need to determine if your deck is suitable for pressure washing before jumping right in. Like many services, it’s best to consult a professional to make sure you’re choosing the safest option for your home.
Because of its high-powered spray, stubborn dirt and stains are easily washed away in minutes with a pressure wash. It can also destroy mildew and moss, detach loose paint, and even remove deck stain, making it a viable option for an all-around cleaning. However, if performed incorrectly, pressure washing can force wood to splinter or leave welts in composite decking, causing irreversible damage to your space. Furthermore, the washing device can be dangerous to operate without proper knowledge and equipment. Instead of attempting it on your own, leave it to a qualified cleaning company. With a trained pressure washing professional, you can trust that the job will be done both safely and risk-free.
