Routine Deck Inspection

You don't need to be an expert to inspect your deck. The best way to routinely inspect your deck is to look for any uneven areas on the surface of your deck. Another great way to ensure your deck is strong is to try to wiggle or put weight on the wooden railing.

Ensuring the structure of your deck is strong is one of the best ways to start your maintenance project. If you notice any loose boards, it's time to tighten the connection between boards and ensure the structure of your wood deck is solid.

If you notice any raised or exposed nails, it's time to pry them up and replace them. This can be done by ensuring the nails are properly embedded or by replacing these metal nails with wooden screws.

Routine deck inspections can keep your wood deck protected throughout the year without costing money or much time.

Professional Pressure Washing

The next best way to keep your wood deck in the best shape possible is to invest in a professional wood deck cleaning with a local pressure washing company.

Pressure washing is a great way to ensure that your wood deck is clean throughout the year. Experts recommend getting your deck cleaned at least once a year to ensure the surface is clean and protected.

The pressure washing experts at Aqua Blast Pressure Washing individually assess each project we work on to ensure you're getting the best cleaning options possible. We provide unique cleaners and choose only the best water pressures to keep your wood deck in the best shape possible.

Seal and Stain Your Deck

The next best option is to seal and stain your deck after a premier pressure washing. Keeping your deck sealed and stained will allow your wood deck to reach it's expected lifespan.

Sealants are used to repel water and keep your wood from warping, breaking, or being damaged by the elements. Water absorption can cause rot, decay, fungus, and even insect attacks that can break down the structure of your wood deck. Using a sealant on your wood deck protects your deck from these dangers.

Staining is another great option to protect your deck because it can help protect against UV and water damages.

The pressure washing experts at Aqua Blast Pressure Washing can help you choose which staining and sealant options can protect your deck the best.
