Hi, it’s Derek from All Pro Washing. Today I’m going to show you how to take care of your deck. To do the job this is the equipment I need; I got a selection of brooms, small and large. I’ve got some deck cleaner, safety equipment and a pressure washer. If you don’t have a pressure washer you can always use your hose. But you do get a really good finish if you have one.

Next, I’m going to get rid of all this gear, so we can get started. I’m going to give it a good sweep first. Your best friend is a broom. Sweep it regularly with a softer broom that stop small particles from building up becoming a bigger mess. If it needs a stronger clean, use a hard bristle broom, maybe a little bit of water. The deck I am using for my demonstration needs a really good clean, so we’re going to use the pressure washer. We’re going to attach the pressure washer to a garden house. Don’t forget your safety equipment and just remember when using a pressure washer on an older deck, just be careful that you don’t bring up any cracks or split the wood.
Now we’re going to give the deck a scrub with some deck clean. Don’t fit the safety equipment and read the instructions. This one is one part it claimed four parts water. Now it’s important to give it a really good stew. So this broom is basically a scrubbing brush on a stick. It’s designed specifically for doing decks. It’s important to make sure that you don’t get cleaner all of your plants. You can see that it’s already starting to make a difference. You leave this on here for 10 to 20 minutes, and then you wash it off with the pressure washer. A deck clean is something you should do regularly. And don’t forget every now and then you can feed the timber. There’s some great products for that and you just choose the right one for the timber that your deck is made of. So that’s how you clean a deck. We need to do now is the gear back on here and have a bbq.
