It's more than clean, it's Renew Crew Clean

Clean up your Dock before Summer Hits

A good friend of mine has a lake house where in the summer many weekends are spent relaxing and enjoying the beautiful weather on the lake. A few weeks before the real season begins, we make the trip to the house to clean it up for the season. Inside, we stock up on the essentials, dust and straighten up. Outside there is much more work. It entails pulling out furniture from storage, clearing any debris that may have fallen and general upkeep. Over the years some areas of the property have shown its age, including their dock. While it’s not necessarily time for it to be replaced, it needs to be cleaned.

Power cleaning a dock is a necessary maintenance chore, but it’s also one that needs to be done properly. The products that you use on a deck may not be good for cleaning a dock. Many wood cleaners include harsh chemicals that can harm the water, and the living organisms, under the water.

Renew Crew’s environmentally friendly dock cleaner is safe to use over both fresh and salt water. It won’t harm any of the plants or fish. Just like we do with a deck, we use a thick foam to dig deep into the wood surface, loosening up any built up dirt, mold and grime. A low pressure wash will get rid of that dirt, leaving your dock looking new for the summer.

Professional power cleaning will make your dock look just like new. If you have questions on the process, please contact your local Renew Crew location.
