Spring has sprung (at least in Florida). This is the ideal time of year to use your deck and enjoy the warm yet still tepid weather. However, if mold and mildew have discolored your planks with grime, it can dull the lure. One of the best ways to keep your deck looking like new is to pressure wash it regularly.
Power washing a deck removes built-up mildew and mold build-up refreshing its surface and helping prevent permanent damage and staining. Mildew issues go beyond the visual. If you happen to step out in the morning hours and the dew has settled, it can be a slip-and-fall hazard as well as after a rain storm.
When power washing it’s a good idea to contact a professional power washing service, trained to safely achieve results without causing damage.
Our goal in this post is to further educate you on the benefits of power washing a deck.
What’s Stuck to My Deck?
Mold, Algae, Dirt, Dust, Sand, and Debris, and because it’s Florida – often salt residue as well.
Decks are exposed to the elements and need to be maintained in order to extend their life. Airborne algae find their way to your deck’s surfaces, latch on, and (if left untreated) continue to grow until they leave permanent stains behind. These algae combine with moisture-loving mold and mildew, creating a perfect breeding ground for contaminants to further ruin your deck. Add in the dirt and grime from foot traffic, and it’s easy to see why your deck needs your help to look its best.
The Benefits of a Professional Power Wash
Deck Washing Saves Time and Money
Routine deck maintenance can help keep it beautiful and extend its lifespan by helping to prevent costly damages. Power washing a deck is far cheaper than the cost of replacing even small portions of your deck. Materials carry an average price of $25 per square foot, and the cost of lumber has skyrocketed due to higher demand for building materials and a bustling housing market. In 2023, the cost of replacing your deck is the highest it has ever been.
Power washing is a safe and effective way to clean and protect the wood, Trex, and composite decks. However, professional power washing companies should ask detailed questions to make sure that they use the correct products and pressure to clean without damage.
It is wise to avoid the “one-price-fits-all” contractors that are eager to treat every home service the same. Often times you get what you pay for, winding up with a lower cost on the service but expensive repairs on the back end. That’s why it’s important to go with a reputable company with professional technicians, such as Benitez Power Washing.
