Decks and porches are an extension of your home’s interior features, making them the perfect space for outdoor gatherings. While they may be a good investment for entertainers or even simple outdoor enthusiasts, they cost tens of thousands of dollars to install. For this reason, it is important to make sure you are doing your best to maintain and preserve your deck or porch.
Some composite deck and outdoor porch brand names claim to be “maintenance-free” which can be true, but like a picture frame sitting on a shelf, your outdoor areas are going to collect dust, dirt, and other unwanted allergens.
Our soft washing procedures work to not only clean but sanitize your home’s outdoor entertainment areas. Decks and porches can experience heavy buildups of mildew, mold, algae, and lichens, all naturally occurring and all extremely unsafe for your home’s exterior surfaces. Left untreated, these pests eat away at your wooden decks and cause unfixable damages. Using just one third of the water that a typical pressure washing system uses, our soft washing method will keep your deck or porch lasting months longer. Get rid of the buildup and get back to enjoying your property’s best features.
Wooden decks and porches can be tricky to clean. The classic brown color can often become bleached out by the sun or harsh cleaning chemicals. It can also begin to crack and splinter if not properly cared for. Georgia Softwash’s expertise can bring your wooden outdoor areas back to their pristine shape through a safe and effective soft wash treatment. We use a safer alternative for your home and environment. Our soft wash method protects your deck from the damage of high force pressure washing. Saving you from costly board repairs or replacements.
Wooden decks can also become a garden for fungus, a living organism that causes wood rot and even sprouts up and out of the surface. Keeping your deck clean is a great way to prevent slipping hazards, especially on stairs and ramps. Slime build up not only looks bad to the eye but can cause unwanted injuries if someone were to slip and fall. Slip and fall accidents are the leading cause of emergency room visits every year. Prevent these problems with a yearly deck or porch cleaning from Georgia Softwash, your trusted local business.
Wooded outdoor features use solid color paint to seal out water but can easily accumulate soiling once the paint begins to age. Painted surfaces often become slicker than other wood surfaces as the paint seals out the moisture and lets it accumulate on top. For this reason, we use our soft washing techniques to gently wash your deck or porch, ridding it of moss, algae, mold, and mildew.
Decks and porches that have a semi-transparent stain require unique attention. Too many or too strong of chemicals can remove the stain. Too much pressure can leave marks on the stained area. Our soft wash treatment keeps your stain intact while removing the mildew and algae.
Unstained wood is the most delicate to clean. Wood that has not been stained may appear to have a grey, dull look to it. We will safely remove the discoloration and put in the time and labor needed to give your deck or porch it’s like-new look. We use chemicals that are not only safe for the wood, but also for the environment around the deck.
