Deck Cleaning Services – Des Moines, Iowa
Spring has finally sprung and, since you are reading this article, you are probably thinking about a thorough deck cleaning. The deck furniture is about to come out, the barbecue grill has been uncovered and there is debris everywhere from lack of use. You are probably even noticing green or black spots on your deck. Before the kids take another step and before you pull out the power washer, here are a few tips you should be aware of before you start the deck cleaning process!
What is THAT on my Deck?
Whether you have a wood or composite deck, if you need a cleaning, your deck will have that “weathered” look from dirt and debris, possibly green or black spots on it as well. If your deck is wood, it may also be harboring infestations; mold, mildew, lichen and fungus which can also eat away at wood over time.
Although you might think that using a pressure washer is the correct way to clean a deck, think again. For a wood deck, the force of the water may cause splintering which may lead you to replace some of the wood. We have been called in time and again after a cleaning service has been called in because of their improper use of a pressure washer or inadequate cleaning solutions.
Consider the type of solution you will be using; a caustic bleach will do more harm than good, not only to the wood but, more importantly, it may harm family and pets. Our company uses a proprietary cleaning solution which is environmentally safe, harmless towards kids, pets and landscaping and very effective on eradicating infestations. If you have a wood deck, we also treat it with a special-oil based solution which seeps into the wood to restore its original luster.
