Constant Inspections

One of the most important parts of maintenance for anything, including decks, is vigilance. If you know something has gone awry, then you can fix it before it gets worse. Make sure to check your deck regularly, looking for any loose boards, protruding nails, or any other issues.

Clean Your Deck

If you want your deck to look its best, then it needs to be clean. Before you can apply any sealant, paint or stain, you need to ensure your deck has been cleaned. Any dust or dirt left on your deck can cause imperfections and make your deck look less than its best.

Annual Resealings

Want your deck to consistently look new? Then you will need to reapply sealant at least once a year. The best time to reseal is going to be in late spring, and you will want to check the forecast, as rain can wash away the sealant.

Keep Your Deck Clear

If you have any bushes or trees near your deck, then you will want to keep them trimmed. Leaves from trees can fall on your deck and cover it. This also helps to prevent mold, moss, and rot. Additionally you may want to move any furniture around occasionally, to avoid discoloring of the deck.

Use a Deck Brightener

Once you’ve had your deck for a while, you may notice a loss of color. Brightener can bring this color back. Make sure your deck is clean and dry before applying, then after a few minutes wash the brightener away. Your deck’s color will be revitalized, and your deck will be glowing again.
