Deck Cleaning and Restoration
Fact: All Exterior Wood Needs Protection From Outdoor Weather!
Why? Because the damaging effects of outdoor weather on exposed, unprotected wood begins IMMEDIATELY and lasts forever. Thus the need for deck cleaning and restoration.
The day you finish installing a deck or other wood structures, is the day trouble can start. Morning dew, rainwater and melting ice or snow are quickly absorbed by unprotected wood, causing it to soften and swell. Direct exposure to the sun’s heat causes drying, which makes wood shrink. Continuous cycles of wet and dry, swelling and shrinking, cause wood to warp, split, crack. All of which lead to premature wood degradation and expensive repairs.
Unprotected wood is also subject to surface graying caused by constant exposure to the sun’s ultra-violet rays. Persistent moisture exposure creates ripe conditions for the growth of mildew, mold, algae and other fungal organisms that feed on wood, eventually spreading across and staining the surface. Which can create a potential health hazard creating a very slippery surface.
Termites and other wood boring insects also use wood for a food source, causing ultimate wood rot and decay.
What we do is deep-clean the wood with environmentally safe cleaners and strippers to ensure that the dirt and prior stains are removed. Our system also kills the root structure of existing mold, algae and other harmful microorganisms. This process allows new stains and sealers to perform as they were designed to by the manufacturers. The end result is that your deck or other wood structures will be in a condition to last longer and will be easier to maintain in the future from our harsh weather in Pittsburgh, PA!
