Winterizing Your Deck

We are entering the fall months and soon it will be winter. Winterizing your deck is important. As we experience the beautiful changing of leaves, you reminisce of the wonderful times you have spent on your deck. The outdoor grills, family gatherings, business events, your favorite pastimes, or just the relaxing moments with a good book spent outside on the deck. Our decks can be very important to us so proper care of the wood is necessary to get the most out of it. When you take care of this properly by hiring a professional, you will get the most out of your decks for many years to come while also increasing the value of your home or business. Kings of Clean are your local professionals that will ensure you accomplish your goal and continue to enjoy life on the deck. Normal wear and tear to your deck is unavoidable. The weather damage, such as exposure to the sun, causes the wood to turn gray. The weather moisture produces an ideal condition for mold, mildew, algae, and moss growth which can really damage your deck. Foot traffic which leads to ground in dirt, food spills, barbecue stains and other remnants of summer time events can cause not only appearance damage, but degrading of the wood. It is time for winterizing your deck by repairing the summer damage and get ready for rough weather conditions like onslaught of ice, snow, sleet and moisture during the harsh winter months ahead.  Small problems can lead to big expensive repairs if not properly tended to. Winterizing reduces the potential expensive repairs next summer as well as prolongs the life of your deck. Smart home or business owners realize the seasons can wreak havoc and will hire a professional to take care of their deck. Winterizing your deck is a complex process, and you really need to hire a professional like Kings of Clean to do it right for you.  Pressure washing requires experience and precision to properly execute. Wood is a naturally porous material so if power wash force is incorrect it can cause scratches and or gouges in the wood.  Your deck is part of your home even if not used during the winter months. A very important reason or purpose of hiring professionals to winterize your deck is to assure the entire deck is safe for use. Damage on your deck can become worse during the wet winter months so inspection of the deck is necessary. The professional will inspect and check the entire deck for safety, assure fixtures are intact, and no repairs are needed now.  If the damage is missed, the deck can weaken during the winter conditions. Pressure washing can be dangerous for the do-it-yourself home owner.  Washer pressure can cause severe injury.  It has enough power to pierce the skin, eye, or other bodily injuries.  It must be used with extreme caution.  The professional pressure washer will know how to perform the procedure without causing personal injury.  In addition to personal injury, the pressure washer can cause damage such as etched concrete, broken windows, and scarred wood. To save yourself repair costs, leave it up to the experienced pressure washer. Nobody wants to tear down the deck and start over. Hiring a professional will make your deck sparkle.
