How does your brand new deck look? Even if you’ve had it built recently, it could already look rough due to the unpredictable weather. Let’s say you’ve had your deck for almost twenty years, and it still looks great. That means you’ve taken excellent care of it as the seasons have passed. Here’s how you can get your new deck ready in time for spring to arrive.
Cleaning Your Deck
Chances are, you’ve left your deck alone during the cold, cold winter. In that case, you’ll find plenty of dust everywhere. When spring comes, you’ll want to spend as much time outside on your deck as you can. If you’re like most people and suffer from seasonal allergies, you’ll already been feeling it when the pollen finds you. There’s no need for all that dust to make things worse! Be sure to clean all of the furnishings and accessories left out on your deck. Looking to do some grilling the next time warm weather appears? You’ll need to clean up your grill, too.
Ensuring It Stays Clean
Making sure your deck is clean is one thing. But once you start using it again, you’ll also want to ensure it stays clean. Put when you’re giving your deck a facelift, it’s a good idea to have gloves, goggles, hoses, and sponges on hand before you get started.
Putting on the Stain
Part of protecting your deck during the winter is to give it another layer of stain. The same is true for the spring – you may need a fresh coat. Sealing your deck minimizes the chances of water damage and wear from sitting in the sunlight. Just keep in mind that the type of stain you’ll need to use depends on the kind of deck you have.
