Decking is often a fantastic place to sit and enjoy the warm summer days with friends and family, most decking is made from wood. Most exterior surfaces become dirty over time to due to weathering and general use, apart from the everyday dirt etc if your decking is constructed from wood it's particularly suspecting to organic infections such as moss, algae, mould, lichen and much more as wood is a porous surface and unless maintained regularly can become damp and is perfect for the aforementioned to grow.
If decking isn't maintained then it can become quite slippery during the wet weather and colder months making it dangerous for those living at your home, traditional methods for cleaning decking is to use a presure washer and whilst this does work and remove most of the obvious dirt and organic matter etc unless properly treated you will notice in a number of months if not weeks that it starts to look dirty again and can be worse than before. We aren't saying pressure washing decking doesn't work but risk of unforseen damage can occur and the aforementioned organic infectants usually aren't treated properly.
Fortunately like most things in life there are usually other choices and in terms of getting your decking cleaned you can choose to have it soft washed, not only will soft washing remove any built-up dirt, organic matter and staining etc but it will properly deal with anything growing inside and in-between the decking itself and ultimately this means your decking will stay cleaner and structurally healthier for longer. With soft washing we don't blast your decking so there are no risks of damaging, unwanted noise or extreme mess that pressure washing generates, instead soft washing uses specially formulated solutions which are made depending on the exterior surface that is being cleaned and are then delivered via low pressure via either a jet, soft brush or a combination of both depending on the cleaning required.
In fact most customers barely hear any noise when we are cleaning their decking and this is often preferred if they are at home during our visit or are concious about neighbouring properties. Additionally after decking cleaning has been completed we then apply a biocidal solution that will provide residual protection to prevent future organic infections from taking hold, a decking oil can also be applied that will further protect your decking and enhance it's great look.
Our customers have told us that our decking cleaning and restoration service has lasted up to three times longer than traditional methods they have previously used and the end result looks great.
