Summer’s just around the corner and you want to start spending some of your free time outside on your deck. But wait! Is your deck ready for all the wear and tear that comes with summer? Here are a few reasons why it's important to clean your deck and what American Exteriors can do to help:
What’s the worst that can happen to an ignored deck?
Oh, let us tell you. Firstly, when your deck hasn’t had any maintenance done in a long time, it may have mildew or algae on its surface. No one wants to host a barbecue on an unsightly deck full of mould and mildew! Secondly, the timber on your deck can rot if it’s left unattended. It is vulnerable to wet weather and termites which will cause damage if not treated immediately. If it is not treated properly, it can weaken the structure of your deck and cause water damage to the lower levels of your home.
So what can we do about this?
The best thing would be to hire a professional company like American Exteriors to wash your deck before summer arrives. Regular cleaning will prevent stains from penetrating deeper into the wood. Our team uses low-pressure washing with eco-friendly chemicals so that your wood won’t get damaged in the process!
Summer is a great time of year to spend more time in your backyard, and a clean deck makes it even better! It is also a great opportunity for you to enjoy the outdoors with friends and family. If you are planning on hosting any events or barbecues this summer, remember that now is the perfect time to get your deck ready so that it looks beautiful when your guests arrive. Contact American Exteriors today so we can help with all of your deck cleaning needs!
