Deck cleaning. It can be the difference between a deck looking very nice and well-maintained, or looking old and being a slip hazard.
When it comes to deck cleaning, it’s best to have it done by a professional. Here are 5 reasons to consider.
1. Saving You Time
One big reason to hire a professional deck cleaning crew is that it will save you a lot of time. This is especially the case if you are trying to do this by yourself.
It may take an experienced crew an entire day to clean your deck. Now, imagine how long that would take someone by themselves if they’re inexperienced and not using the right equipment.
2. More Experience
Experience can be crucial when it comes to cleaning a deck right. The main reason for this is the equipment and chemicals used in the cleaning process.
Most decks that are cleaned professionally get cleaned via pressure washing and a chemical application of some type. Without the experience and knowledge of the deck cleaning process, things can quickly become frustrating and may even damage your deck if not cleaned properly.
3. Spotting Flaws
If you hire a professional cleaning crew, one thing they may be able to do for you is spot any flaws you currently have with the wood on your deck.
For example, let’s say you have deck boards that are rotting. A professional will likely notice this in the early stages and could recommend you get ahead of the problem. This can end up saving you bigger repair or cleaning costs later.
4. Prevent accidents
With our rainy climate we live in it creates opportunity for mold, moss and algae to grow on your deck surface making it very slippery when wet. This can be a huge safety hazard to you and your loved ones not to mention a legal liability.
By washing your decks surface clean you will eliminate the risk of a problem before it occurs! Annual spring cleanings are highly recommended.
5. Increasing Deck Lifespan
Finally, decks are not meant to last forever. However, that does not mean that you can’t increase the lifespan of your deck.
The average lifespan for deck wood is 20 years. However, this can vary from as little as 15 years and as much as 25 years. If you want a longer lifespan for your deck, proper deck maintenance is key.
