Deck Cleaning and Restoration
At Clean It, Inc., we can restore old and damaged decks or provide ongoing maintenance to assure that your deck lasts for years to come.
Spend your time enjoying your deck and family and let us clean and restore it for you.
The year after your deck has been sealed, your deck will still be protected against water damage, rot and decay. Depending on the location of your deck and how often it is used, it may be necessary to do a light yearly cleaning for aesthetic reasons. Sealing is not required at this point. If dirt accumulation is minimal, you should be able to do this yourself following the instructions below. Clean It, Inc. also offers a yearly cleaning service for your convenience.
DO IT YOURSELF CLEANING - Your entire deck should be cleaned once yearly after sealing. Spot cleaning should be done as necessary, whenever something oily is spilled on your deck, such as a dropped hamburger. Scrub your deck with a solution of regular liquid dishwashing soap and warm water. Use a medium bristle, nylon scrub brush that will not dig into the wood too much. Rinse with plenty of water until no suds remain. Unless you have some problem spots that were left untreated for long periods of time, this cleaning should suffice.
If you have extensive staining, algae or mold on your deck, a stronger cleaner will be necessary. From your local hardware store, purchase a liquid deck cleaner and brightener. This will be more aggressive than soap and water, but it will not remove the existing sealer. The product is safe and easy to use, just follow the instructions.
