Is your deck ready for the spring season? Warm weather is coming, and people will be eager to relax on their decks. You should also apply “spring cleaning” to outdoor living areas. Before spring arrives, you must get your deck in shape. Below are some helpful tips for preparing your deck for spring.
Give Your Deck A Thorough Cleaning
A thorough cleaning is the first step in deck maintenance. Grab a sturdy broom and work your way between the boards as best. Then, clean up any remaining dirt, dust, or debris. After sweeping, use a brush with a long handle and a cleaning solution to clean off your deck. Repeat this procedure if there are any areas with stubborn grime. We do not recommend using bleach to clean because it can discolor specific regions.
Staining Or Seal Your Deck
A stain will shield a wooden deck from UV rays, which degrade wooden decks. This procedure also improves and enhances the appearance of your deck. You can even stain the material with different colors to change the look of your outdoor living space. Even if staining does not occur regularly, it is best to apply a sealant regularly. A sealant bond protects against UV rays and keeps the wood from drying out or cracking. If your yard faces the sun, applying a sealant every three years will help to preserve the wood.
Upgrade Or Replace Your Deck
A deck might call for aesthetic and functional upgrades now and then. If your deck is aging, a replacement might be necessary. Be sure to look out for the following harmful signs as well as they include the following: wood rot, mold, soft areas, discoloration, and mold.
