Both wood and composite decks require regular cleaning and maintenance if you want them to look great and last a long time. However, there are certain seasons when it’s crucial to wash and clean the deck so that it retains its original look and feel. 

Spring Season

Winter is a tough time for your deck. While snow may be rare in the Woodlands, it does occur sometimes. The freezing winds, snow, and ice can all combine to take a toll on its surface and inner finish. All decks are porous in nature, and the ice and snow get inside the pores, where they mix with the dirt and grime. Once the temperatures rise, the ice will melt and create a moist environment in the mud and dirt inside the deck.  

These are ideal breeding grounds for all kinds of organic pollutants such as lichen, mold, mildew, and algae. If you don’t clean your deck every spring, the odds are that it will soon be covered in multiple parasitic infestations. Apart from destroying its original look and feel, these parasites can also cause permanent harm. Your deck will start rotting, and eventually, you will have to replace it. 

The longer you wait, the worse the infestation will become. However, deck-cleaning specialists will easily and quickly remove not just the organic contamination, but also all the dirt, grit, and grime from your deck. 

It is always a good idea to have your deck cleaned whenever the temperatures start rising to ensure its beauty and longevity. Ideally, you should call in the experts to clean your deck in March when there is no chance of more ice and snow. 

A clean deck would also become an inviting place for all those hotdog and bar-b-que parties that herald the change of the season. 

Late Fall 

This is another great time to have your deck professionally cleaned before heavy rainstorms hit your area. Your deck-cleaning experts will wash off the spring and summer’s food droppings, boot marks, bird droppings, grit, and grime. This way, your deck would be safe and ready for use early next year.
