Timber Deck Cleaning
Timber cleaning requires specialist products and techniques which John from All Exterior Cleaning has experience with.
While sanding you deck gives a fantastic result, it does remove 1 to 2mm of timber. This is not something you can do regularly when the boards are only 19mm thick. Also, sanding is only possible when the nails or screws are countersunk. Many decks have “dome-headed” nails which sit above the timber and these need to be either removed and replaced with screws, or driven into the timber – causing more damage to the timber fibres, and damage allows water in, and water ruins timber.
If your deck has an acrylic coating that is worn, scratched, split or flaking it will, unfortunately, need either sanding or stripping with paint stripper.
Careful cleaning only removes dirt, mould and old oil, plus a very thin layer of grey timber fibres.
Kahūta Cleaning is usually a two step process, after these steps & it has dried – it is ready for the 1oil.
