Deck Cleaning & Preparation

Once the timber has been stripped and prepared for staining, the first step is to wash down the deck.

The use of a suitable cleaning solution for your deck, followed by a pressure clean provides the ultimate results.

This cleans away any dirt, oils or mould that lie deeper in the timber leaving it ready for application of the new decking oil.

As timber decks are usually exposed to the elements day in, day out, the weathering process can take a heavy toll on the wooden surface. So as the saying goes, “it’s all in the preparation”, and this is certainly true for decks.

The type of decking oil used can depend on the type of deck you have, your location, and how you use the deck.

It is them important to follow the correct application process allowing for adequate time between coats.

Chemically Strip or Sand?

The process to remove the old deck coating can depend on what stain was previously used, it’s condition, and the type of timber deck being treated.

Our trained technicians are able to advise on the process to best suit your deck, then perform the job efficiently and professionally.

We have a range of specialist chemical solutions for stripping off the old coating, or we can use our brush sander system that is much more efficient and gentler on the timber that traditional belt sanding.

This process helps to remove the grey colour from old wood, and allows the new decking oil to penetrate deeper into the timber for a longer lasting finish.
