A deck is a good way of maximizing your home’s entertainment space, especially if you have plans of holding gatherings with a large amount of guests. When it comes to durable decks, TimberTech’s composite decks are the ones you should have for your home. Not only are they worthy investments but they’re also low maintenance. However, that doesn’t mean you should forget about their upkeep.
In this post, storm damage restoration experts from Timberland Exteriors gives you a step-by-step guide to maintain your TimberTech composite decks.
When it comes to the deck’s main body, the first thing you should do is to inspect it for any wood rot or additional problems. That way, you can call a professional as soon as possible to get it repaired. Otherwise, you can add more on to cleaning the deck itself. TimberTech carries a wide variety of cleaning products for you to use to help maintain your deck’s beauty. Remember to use the correct brush such as a medium stiffness nylon bristle brush, or your risk dulling the surface of your composite deck.
Once you’ve coated your deck with the cleaning product, you can use a power washer to rinse it away. Keep in mind to only keep the pressure at 1,500 psi or lower or you might damage the material of your deck.
Like the deck’s main body, there are certain yet simple steps that you have to follow when cleaning your deck’s railing. The first step is cleaning it with the appropriate cleaning product, such as a mixture of water and mild detergents. Avoid abrasive cleaners or polish to prevent your railing from deteriorating. Once you’ve wiped it down with the mixture, rinse the railing with clear water and wipe it with a soft cloth or a natural bristle brush. Alternatively, you can also call a professional like the deck maintenance and vinyl window installation pros of Timberland Exteriors to do the job for you.
Removing Dirt, Grime and Mildew Stains
TimberTech composite decks may be formulated to prevent mildew growth and minimize staining, but that doesn’t mean they’re completely immune to it. To remove these stains, you can periodically rinse off the deck with a hose and make sure that the water effectively drains from the deck to prevent mildew growth in the future.
