Woodwork that is left untreated becomes dry and weathered and will eventually need to be replaced. Here are 3 tips to stunt the deterioration of the wood allowing it to have a long and beautiful life.
1. Sweep Your Deck Once a Month People often think of a deck as self-cleaning, but a little bit of TLC can go a long way. Brush off fallen leaves for better air circulation and so leaves won't rot and leave mildew. Clean between decking board cracks and use pot feet to keep potted plants elevated.
2. Do a Major Clean Twice a Year Inspect for damage, clean off debris with a hose, sand splinters, and use a stain remover to lift any grill or dirt stains.
3. Treat Your Deck Every 2 to 4 Years: Regardless of how well you've cleaned it the sun, moisture, and temperature take a major toll on your deck. Having a well sealed deck is the number one way to extend the life of your deck and save the cost of replacing it.
Bonus! Different products have different strengths and weaknesses. A clear stain is closer representation of your deck's natural beauty, but a semitransparent or tinted stain will last up to 3 times as long. Reading labels carefully may sound like a no-brainer, but people rarely purchase the product that best suits their needs.
