The Pros and Cons of Power Washing Your Deck

When it comes to power washing your deck, there are pros and cons to consider. On one hand, power washing can remove built-up dirt, grime, and stains from your deck. This can restore the deck’s natural beauty and make it look like new again. On the other hand, power washing can also damage the deck if not done correctly. In this blog post, we will explore the pros and cons of power washing your deck so that you can make an informed decision about whether or not to do it!

Pros of Power Washing Your Deck

  1. Power washing your deck has several pros. First, as we mentioned, it can remove dirt, grime, and stains from your deck. This can make your deck look like new again and help to protect it from further damage.
  2. Power washing can also remove mold and mildew from your deck. Mold and mildew can cause your deck to rot and deteriorate over time, so power washing them away can help to prolong the life of your deck.
  3. Power washing can also help to protect your deck from future damage. By removing dirt and debris, power washing can help to prevent your deck from fading or discoloration. Additionally, power washing can also help to remove any potential hazards that could cause damage to your deck, such as nails or other sharp objects.

Cons of Power Washing Your Deck

  1. While power washing your deck has its pros, it also has its cons. First, power washing can damage your deck if not done correctly. If the power washer is set to too high of a pressure, it can strip away the protective sealant on your deck, leaving it vulnerable to damage.
  2. Additionally, power washing can also cause splintering and cracking in your deck. This is because the high-pressure water can force the wood fibers apart, causing them to splinter and crack.
  3. Finally, power washing your deck can take several hours to complete, so it is important to factor in the time commitment when deciding whether or not to power wash your deck.
