A few days ago I visited a friend who had recently repainted her guest room. The previously dark beige room is now a light blue-grey. It’s amazing the difference that it makes. The room is lighter and more inviting than before. Updating the surface of a room, home or exterior space can breathe new live into an area. And deck cleaning is no different.
Yesterday I came across some pictures from our Renew Crew of Lincoln team of some recent deck cleaning and sealing projects they’ve done and the transformations are incredible!
Take this deck for example. It looks as though the deck has been previously stained, but the color is now showing its age. It’s uneven and fading as well as chipping in key places like the railings and steps. Dean and Heather Ritchey, who provide deck cleaning and sealing in Lincoln, removed the existing stain and deep cleaned the entire space. Using a foam cleaner, they were able to remove any built -up dirt and loosen any dying wood fibers. After the deck was dry, they applied a semi-transparent protectant to the wood.
Doesn’t the space look more inviting? The color is even throughout all of it. Renew Crew’s protectant will stop water and dirt from settling back in the wood and will repel the sun’s harmful UV rays.
This next project from Lincoln is smaller, but still makes a big impact. Unlike our first example, the deck didn’t have a previous colored stain on the surface. Instead, the natural wood deck looked weathered and grey as wood that isn’t protected dries out and loses its color over time. The same three-step process was used on this deck to revive its color and quality.
And look at it now! It looks bright and new. The wood grain is now more easily appreciated with the protectant that the Ritcheys used.
