Deck cleaning Sydney
Timber deck cleaning and recoating.
Aussie climate is tuff on timber.
Timber decks have become a very popular, low-cost way to add living space to a home and provide a great space to relax, entertain friends, or enjoy outdoor dining. However, like all timber surfaces, they need to be properly maintained. Because timber decks and there coatings are subject to the damaging effects of weather, it is critical to have your deck cleaned and sealed on a regular basis.
A poorly maintained timber deck quickly turns grey in colour as it deteriorates due to the high level of ultra violet light (UV) dirt, mould, and algae. Soon enough the timber deck becomes dry and splinters form, creating a rougher surface even more inviting to dirt and grime and mould.
Preventing this type of situation is easy if you keep your deck treated with a professional grade decking stain or wood deck sealing product that has been applied properly. But before you purchase a timber sealer from your local home improvement store, you should know that sealing decks is only one part of what it takes to do the job properly. Before deck stains or sealers are applied, the wood needs to be thoroughly washed and cleaned with an enviro friendly bio degradable cleaning chemical then power washed to remove the dirt, grime, and soil that has been imbedded deep into the wood’s grain. For most homeowners (and inexperienced professionals), using a pressure cleaner on timber can be very difficult as It is very easy to damage your deck inadvertently.
Keep the weather out with a good quality coating.
To prevent unnecessary repairs, your deck should only be trusted to a professional wood cleaning contractor – a contractor that professionally pressure cleans or strips your deck’s existing finish, uses cleaners that are safe around your plants and landscaping, properly neutralizes and brightens your deck, and applies a sealer that will be effective in preventing future deterioration.

Additional Services and Tips
Water alone won’t get it clean!
House washing cladding be it metal, timber or PVC is a simple 4 step process if you intend on using a small pressure cleaner.
It’s usually mould and mildew that needs to be removed from your cladding and to inhibit its re growth we use a special treatment.
Small pressure cleaners can be deadly on concrete.
Concrete cleaning is by far one of the most difficult tasks a DIY home owner has to encounter.
The porous nature of concrete makes it almost impossible to clean without the proper equipment and in most cases; the area that has to be cleaned is a large driveway. This means days of bending over with a domestic pressure cleaner because they just don’t have the power to clean unless you hold it 50mm from the ground and the closer you hold it the smaller the cleaning area becomes. At this distance the contact pressure is deadly and will literally carve lines in your concrete if you’re not careful.
Why seal your driveway?
Sealing plain grey concrete is a waste of money! Why do I say this?
Unlike stencilled or stamped concrete plain grey concrete has no colour to protect. On the other hand stencilled, stamped or coloured concrete needs a barrier between it and your car or foot traffic and a couple of coats of decorative sealer will do the trick. If you don’t maintain your patterned driveway with sealer the chances are that eventually the colour will wear off in patches and will need open heart surgery to make it look good again.
