Inspecting Your Deck, Fence or Dock
Before we start working on cleaning your deck, fence or boat dock, our team takes a detailed look at potential problems we might encounter on the project. With decks, fences and boat docks, common problems may include broken, rotten or loose boards. Once we identify these problems we take measurements of the project’s size to give an estimate of how long it will take to complete the cleaning.
Power Washing Wood Needs to be Done Carefully.
Once the project has been scoped the cleaning begins. Due to the beatings that wood takes from being outdoors, cleaning the wood has to be done delicately in order to keep it strong and able to last. Cleaning the deck, fence or boat dock fully requires proper equipment that many people don’t have laying around. When you call Ultra Pressure Cleaning, we show up with the proper tools to complete the job.
Wood is a soft surface. Pressure cleaning wood decks or other surfaces should be done with a wand that has an adjustable pressure valve right at the fingertips of the technician so they can adjust the stream of water to a low to medium force and prevent “furring” of the wood. “furring” of the wood.
When power washing your wood, our technicians will follow the grain of the wood and clean in regular even strokes so that removing the graying caused by the Florida sunshine and the black buildup of mildew can then be done safely
After the Initial Cleaning, Your Wood Needs to be Protected From Future Damage
Once a wood fence or deck is cleaned by one of our experienced technicians, we recommend that you choose a wood penetrating water preventive product to protect the wood's surface. A silicone-based Behr's or Thompson's is good to provide 8-12 month's protection and can be applied after pressure cleaning.
You may otherwise opt for an oil-based preservative such as Cabot's Australian Wood Oil. Any wood can benefit from this treatment, but it is most often used with hardwood like teak, Ipe', and Kumaru, especially on wood docks, outdoor furniture, and boat decks.
