TIMBER DECK CLEANING

Enjoy Your Timber Deck

Your timber deck is a great place to sit and relax all year round, but the timber does suffer under the sun & rain. The timber fades & dries, then it starts to turn grey, warp, split & splinter. Eventually moisture will get in and rot the timber. A well oiled timber deck looks great as it highlights the natural colour & grain, plus the oil keeps the moisture out which stops the timber warping, splitting, splintering & rotting.

You spent a lot of money to build your beautiful timber deck and deserve to enjoy it all year round. It looks magnificent when newly cleaned and oiled, but cleaning & oiling your deck can be time consuming hard work, plus the wrong chemicals and technique can damage the timber. That’s why you need someone with knowledge & experience.

Specialist Timber Deck Cleaning & Oiling Services

THE PROCESS

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.
