Maintaining decks and patios can sometimes be a bit labor intensive. Regardless of the work entailed, the enjoyment gained from outdoor living is well worth the sacrifice. Over the lifetime of a deck or patio, there is a good chance you will have to fill cracks, fix broken boards, and re-stain or seal the surface at some point. One of the easiest things you can do to give your deck or patio a quick facelift is to use a powerwasher on it.
A powerwasher is a machine that combines pressure, water, cleaning solution, and heat to clean a surface. It can work wonders on peeling paint, stained surfaces, mold and mildew, or just an exhausted and drab surface.
If you decide this is what your surface needs, here are a few quick tips to get you started.
Once your surface is clean, you will be able to have a clearer picture of what repairs are needed. Perhaps that is all that is needed, or you might go on to re-stain or paint the surface. Whatever you choose to do, you know you have a clean slate free from unwanted debris. Request free estimates from deck and patio experts in your area to help you identify what your surface needs.
