How we clean & Restore Your Deck
We use a three step method to safely and professionally restore every deck we’ve done in the last twenty years.
1st step – We use an airless sprayer to apply our deck restoration chemical “Renew” onto all surfaces of the deck. It’s given time to dwell and work its way into the grain of the wood before a light brushing is applied to further loosen stubborn contaminants.
2nd step – We then wash the deck with low pressure, no more than 800 to 1000 PSI. Our competition uses anywhere from 3000 to 5000 PSI which will raise the grain of the wood, causing splintering and greatly shorten the life of the deck.
3rd step – Our third and most important step is applying the Brightner, this not only helps bring the wood back to its original honey tone but also opens the pores of the wood enabling the new sealer to fully penetrate and bond with deck. This step is critical for maximum UV protection and the longevity of the life of the sealer.
Long term protection
Then for the sealer and how it is applied, every job is different. Affordable SoftWash prides itself in sending put three-man seal crews to make sure your home and landscaping is completely protected. We only use electronic state of the art deck sprayers that saturates the wood with an even, uniform application sealer. You will never see us sealing/protecting a deck with a pump sprayer!
