We properly clean and wash a deck by using proper bio-degradable chemicals to remove previous coatings and using wood brighteners. The power from pressure washing will destroy your deck if chemicals are not being used. Once all of the former coating is removed we HAND BRUSH our deck stain.

Composite or TREX Deck CleaningBuilding decks in the past was only from wood, today the introduction of composite deck materials is the most common way to construct a deck. The most common material in Livonia, MI is Trex. They offer several different lines of price points for consumers. Price will vary on estimates. Prior to Trex Transcend wrapped products composite was not wrapped and susceptible to mold and mildew. these are the hardest to get clean. When cleaning a Trex Deck, great care must be taken to ensure that the decking is not damaged as it is a recycled material. Using too much pressure while using a pressure washer can damage Trex Decking. The contaminants that most often need cleaning off the Trex Deck are Mold + Mildew, and the occasional, and often heavy, Barbecue Grease from the grill. Manufacture's instructions state to clean a Trex deck you should either use Olympic deck cleaner, soapy waster and a bristle brush, or bleach with soapy water.

Livonia, MI homeowners not only use their wood deck they also use their teak furniture. Patio sets are expensive and are on all the decks that we see. Why not have it restored to the factory finish. We typically use Messmers UV Plus for Hardwoods because it penetrates the teak hardwood the best. It does not need to be the same color as the deck.
New wood decks need to weather for 30 days prior to applying a deck stain to them. Every stain manufacturer will recommend different dry times for their product and that is why there are so many different opinions as to how long to wait. There is no benefit to let your new deck weather unprotected in the suns UV rays. The boards will split, cup, warp and weather gray and sometimes the effects can not be reversed. The problem to sealing the wood to early is that the stain will not properly penetrate and the stain life will be cut short. Typically new decks require sealing the first two seasons and then every other.To purchase TWP stain or Sikkens Cetol Srd stain in Livonia, MI click The Stain Depot logo below.
