A nice wooden deck is more than just a collection of wood and nails in your backyard. It is a bastion of good times. It’s where you entertain guests, where the best grilling happens, and where you show your children the Big Dipper for the first time. Your deck is as much a part of your home, and the memories made there, as any other part. Unfortunately your deck is made of an organic material – wood. This means that with time it decomposes on its own but with all that traffic and activity that process can be greatly sped up. How do you combat this process?
Extending The Life Of Your Deck
You are not powerless to sit back and watch your deck deteriorate. Having your deck professionally cleaned and sealed is simple maintenance that can have a dramatic effect on the appearance and longevity of your deck. By having your deck cleaned you remove dirt, mold, and fungus that feed on the wood that comprises your deck. When your deck is properly sealed, destructive moisture is locked out of the fibers of the wood preventing your deck from getting that grey, dull, ashy look when the sun dries it out. So when is the best time to have your deck cleaned and sealed? A popular misconception is that you should let a new deck “dry-out” for at least a year. The reality is that wood can split and crack in as little as 6 months. A professional deck restoration professional can take moisture readings and tell you for sure when a deck is ready but generally speaking, deck cleaning and sealing can happen in as little as 3 months depending on the climate.
