A Comprehensive Guide to Spring Cleaning Your Decks & Patios

Spring is finally on its way, which means now is the perfect time to get your decks and patios ready for warmer weather. In honor of the season ahead, Pro Plus Services is here this month with a guide on freshening up your decks and patios to enjoy all spring and summer!

Clearing the Clutter

Before diving into the deep cleaning, start by decluttering your deck or patio. Remove any items that accumulated over the winter- old planters, furniture covers, or debris. Give the area a clean slate to work with.

Power Washing

Invest in or rent a power washer to give your deck or patio a deep clean. Power washing will help remove built-up dirt, mold, or mildew, leaving surfaces looking brand new. Be sure to follow manufacturer guidelines and test the pressure on a small, inconspicuous area before tackling larger sections.

Tackling the Tough Stains

For stubborn stains like rust or grease, consider specialized cleaners. Rust stains can often be treated with a mixture of lemon juice or salt, while grease stains may require a degreaser. Always check the compatibility with your deck or patio material before applying any chemical cleaners to help avoid any damage.

Treating Your Decking Material

Different decking materials will require different care. Wooden decks, for example, might benefit from a fresh coat of sealant or stain to protect against the elements. Composite decks may need a gentle cleaning with a specialized cleaner to maintain their appearance. 

Attention to Detail

Don’t forget the smaller details. Clean outdoor lighting fixtures, replace burnt-out bulbs, and inspect railings and steps for any necessary repairs. These small touches can make a significant difference in the overall appearance and safety of your outdoor spaces.
