Why You Need Deck Cleaning, Sanding, Staining, and Repair

The main reasons to have your deck cleaned by regular washing are to prevent it from getting slick, which can make it unsafe to use, and to improve the aesthetic appeal of your deck. Over the course of winter, algae and black mold can build up on your deck, starting to break down the wood and making your deck look unappealing. After washing, sanding is an important next step in deck maintenance as it prepares the wood for staining. Sanding will smooth out any splintering and remove the old finish from the wood, allowing for an even application of the new stain. When you stain wood with an oil-based product, that product penetrates down into the wood fibers and helps to preserve them. Additionally, the stain will act as a sealant, waterproofing your deck. Together these things will maximize the number of years of your deck’s life. Over time, as your deck is exposed to moisture and the elements, wood fibers can start to rot. This can happen prematurely if you’re not regularly cleaning, sanding, and staining the wood. When wood rots, you will likely need to invest in deck repair. Signs that you need deck repair include decking boards that feel spongy or brittle to the touch, cracks in your decking boards, or if the wood feels unstable when you step or put pressure on it.

Frequently asked questions

How do you clean decks?2019-09-14T10:34:19-08:00

We use green products, cleaners, brighteners, and strippers in combination with our whirl-a-way surface cleaners.

Do you also repair decks?2019-09-14T10:35:32-08:00

Yes, we do board replacements, railings, and stairs. Contact us for additional details.

Do you sand?2019-09-14T10:37:03-08:00

Yes. We use non-aggressive fine grit sanding paper to remove old stain and weathered appearance to preserve the wood and prevent scaring. All of our decks are sanded to the highest quality of finish after the job is complete.

Is the deck stain oil-based?2019-09-14T10:37:49-08:00

Yes. This helps restore lost oils and protect against harmful sunlight rays. We use the best stains available for the longest lasting treatment. Oil-based stains fade out, as opposed to water-based stains peal over time.

How long does the treatment last?2019-09-14T10:38:52-08:00

We apply deck treatments by hand so they last longer. Hand-applied treatments can last 2-4 years depending on your environment and the transparency of stain that is applied.
