The In’s & Out’s of Pressure Washing Your Deck

Is your deck looking a little worse for wear? Getting hit with the elements each day, especially with saltwater in the air, can add a lot of dirt and debris onto your deck. Using soap, water, and elbow grease may clean the surface of the deck, but you won’t be able to get into every single crevice. In some cases, you could end up causing more damage to the deck. Dirt and debris will get scrubbing to any surface it can without you realizing or having a way to get rid of it. Pressure washing is designed to avoid those issues, especially when done by professionals at Advanced Power Washing. Here’s how pressure washing your deck not only saves you time, but gives you much better results than traditional cleaning.

Deep Cleans Faster: Cleaning your deck with soap, water, your hands, or even a mop, broom, etc. just doesn’t get the job done. You’re focusing on the surface of the wood, which will make it cleaner, but not where it matters most. There are several gaps and crevices that dirt, debris, and water can get stuck. Over time it can build up and weaken the wood in those areas. You’ll be replacing your deck a lot sooner than expected. Not to mention pressure washing can deep clean the deck in a few minutes, while by hand could take several hours. 

Keeps It Looking Brand New: Whether it’s rain, hail, high winds, and even the bright sun, eventually your deck will lose its luster, without regular maintenance. Regular cleanings help keep it looking brand new and pristine. It also prevents any longterm discoloration and damage that can build up preventing costly repairs down the line.

Removes Harmful Materials: If moisture builds up because of dirt and debris getting caught, it’s the perfect place for mold, mildew, and fungal growth. Not only can the damage the deck, but the spores can make people sick.

Maintaining Curb Appeal: Whether you’re planning on selling your home soon, or just want to keep your home looking nice, pressure washing can keep your deck looking wonderful no matter what the situation is. Your home and your deck are an investment to your future. It’s important that you find the best and most affordable way to take care of them both.
