Keeping a wooden deck in good shape can take a lot of hard work. Even if you stain or seal it when you first install it, the boards can still go grey, crack and splinter over time, which makes the deck look old and worn. Thankfully, if you deck is beginning to look like this, there’s no need to rip it down and install a new one. By using the right products and techniques, you can restore your deck to make it look as good as new.
Spring has finally sprung and with the weather now feeling lovely and warm it’s time to attempt a few tasks that you may have been putting off since Winter. To-do-lists will often include cleaning outdoor entertaining areas, paths around the home, driveways and even the house walls or roof. If you have any, or dare I say it, all of the above jobs to complete, it’s a good idea to consider hiring a floor scrubber or water pressure cleaner. Not only will this help make your life easier, but you’ll also see a much better end result than you would with a garden hose. And the good news is that water pressure cleaners will actually use less water than a regular garden hose while cleaning more efficiently. It’s a win win situation.
Water pressure cleaning your outdoor areas, even your walls, should one of the essential routines of any home owner before venturing outside to enjoy a summer meal on the back deck, drinks by the pool or playing with toys on the concrete or paved areas. Prepping and cleaning these areas can be made easy by hiring either an electric or petrol water pressure cleaner.
Should you wish to try water pressure cleaning yourself but aren’t quite sure where or how to start, we’ve put together these steps to help you through the process. And, as always, read the safety and operating instructions that come with the pressure washer as well.
