The winter has already arrived in Australia, and if you don’t take proper care of your timber deck, it will not last till the last summer. Well, if you have installed it just a few months back, in that case, you might skip the part of in-depth maintenance and cleaning a bit. Instead, a quick cleaning will make it through.
However, if the deck is a bit old and you have not taken any such initiative, for now, to update maintain it with proper attention, now is the time to act before the temperature in Australia goes down even more.
Choose a Morning to Clean Up
The first step of maintenance is, of course, a thorough clean up. Take out your duster and clean up all the dirt and debris gathered on the wooden deck. There will undoubtedly be dead leaves, bird droppings and broken tree sticks all around the deck. Don’t forget to remove your furniture and plants before starting the cleaning process.
Thoroughly Inspect for Cracks
If you try to start using water or any other deck cleaning chemicals for cleaning the deck properly, it is essential for you to inspect the cracks. Otherwise, the cleaning agent might penetrate through the cracks and cause additional damages.
You certainly do not want that to happen. Mark the cracking areas thoroughly and call our deck builders in Brisbane for fixing the cracked areas properly to make sure the cleaning cannot do any more harm to your expensive timber deck.
Clean Up the Mould and Mildew
Next up, you have to go for cleaning the mould and mildew. Winter is the time when the mould and mildew remain at its highest quantity, and that is undoubtedly the time to act.
Pressure cleaning with the right cleaning agent will help you to get rid of the dirt quickly. However, make sure that you don’t use any cleaning agent that contain bleaching elements.
