As the weather warms up and outdoor activities become more popular, many homeowners turn their attention to outdoor maintenance and improvement projects. One such project that often warrants attention during the month of June is powerwashing, staining, and sealing their deck or exterior surfaces. In this blog, we'll take a closer look at why these projects are important, and what to keep in mind if you're considering tackling them this month.
Powerwashing is the process of using high-pressure water to clean exterior surfaces, including wood decks, concrete driveways, and brick or stone facades. This process is important because it removes built-up dirt, grime, and debris that can damage and discolor surfaces over time. Powerwashing should typically be done at least once a year, and June is a great time to tackle this task because the weather is warm enough to allow surfaces to dry quickly after cleaning.
Powerwashing Plus makes sure to use the appropriate settings and equipment for the surface being cleaned. For example, a high-pressure setting may be too harsh for some delicate wood decks, while a lower pressure setting may not be effective enough on concrete surfaces. Also, we take care to protect nearby landscaping and outdoor furniture from the spray of the powerwasher, and wear protective gear to avoid injury.
Staining and sealing
After powerwashing, many homeowners choose to follow up with staining and sealing their deck or other outdoor surfaces. This process involves applying a protective coating to the surface, which helps to prevent water damage, fading, and other forms of wear and tear.
Staining and sealing is particularly important for wooden decks, which are vulnerable to moisture damage and fading from exposure to the sun. By adding a protective layer of sealant, you can extend the life of your deck and keep it looking beautiful for years to come. In addition, staining can help to enhance the natural color and texture of your wood, which can add visual interest and curb appeal.
When staining and sealing, Powerwashing Plus is sure to choose the appropriate products for your surface. Some deck sealers are designed specifically for use on pressure-treated lumber, while others are formulated to protect against UV rays or other environmental factors. Additionally, we take care to apply the products according to the manufacturer's instructions, and avoid over-application, which can lead to a thick, sticky finish.
Powerwashing, staining, and sealing are important projects to tackle in the month of June to ensure that your outdoor surfaces remain in top condition. By following these tips and taking care to choose the right equipment and products, Powerwashing Plus can help you keep your deck, driveway, and other exterior surfaces looking great for years to come.
