Keep Your Deck Looking Good With These Great Tips


Your backyard can be the perfect place to get away from the world, relax outside, and have fun with friends and family. But in order to enjoy your space to its fullest, you’ll need to take care of your deck, especially if you plan on using it in the upcoming seasons! It may seem like a big task, but here are 4 steps you can take to keep your deck in good shape:

Repair it

Some of the problems you might notice are wood rot, mold and mildew growth, and broken boards. Rot and broken boards can be very dangerous and might even destabilize your deck. Every now and then, you should inspect your deck for signs of age, but it’s always a better option to have professionals come inspect and repair any damages you might notice.

Clean it

Mold and mildew growth on your deck isn’t the only reason to scrub your deck. You should still clean it regularly! For a deep clean, use a pressure washer with a cleaning solution. But you’ll want to keep the pressure washer on the lowest setting if your deck is made of softer wood. You can always wash by hand with soap and water too!

Seal it

Sealing your deck is a great way to prevent rot from the weather and keep it in good shape. Spring is the best time to seal your deck, but it’s a big project that requires a lot of time to complete. A job like this one is best left to a professional team who know what they’re doing and can get into those hard to reach areas for a complete seal.

Decorate it

With all of the maintenance work aside, it’s time to decorate and make your deck feel homey. Adding a little decoration can go a long way! Comfortable deck furniture is key to making the area feel like your own outdoor oasis and investing in a table and chairs is perfect for when you want to entertain guests with outside dining.

    Almost one (very rainy) year ago, we used RainAway Deck Drain Systems to install our underdeck system at our home. It is fabulous. It is life changing.
