Having a deck or a patio in your back yard can really overhaul the aesthetics, really adding a lot to the looks. It is also a great social space for you and your family, ideal for summer cookouts and barbeques. However, over an extended period of time, and being constantly exposed to the ever-changing weather, both can begin to show signs of wear. Decking easily loses its color and can begin to fracture and splinter, whilst patios collect dirt and dust and begin to fade. By having your deck or patio professionally cleaned, you can hang on to the sharp aesthetics in your garden.
Often being the stand out feature in your yard, your deck or patio is a space that attracts a lot of attention. As such, the aesthetics should be taken seriously. It does not take a very long time, or much in the way of weather conditions, before a deck starts to show the effects of wear. A neglected deck will lose its color and will splinter quickly. This can make your garden look a lot more tired and uncared than if maintained. Your patio can also pick up dirt and grime with relative ease, especially in the grouting. Keeping both clean and well maintained will really keep your yard looking vibrant and full of life; and importantly, an eye-catching spot for the summer barbeque.
By keeping both your patio and deck well maintained, you can ensure a far greater longevity than if left untreated. As both age, mold can begin to build up within. With wooden decking, mold left to thrive can eventually lead the degradation and then the eventual fracturing, breaking and rotting. With patios, mold can start to establish itself inside the porous body of the grouting. This will eventually spread and become visible, showing as dark patches. If both are properly kept then the chances of mold initially establishing itself is completely negated, meaning that they will both last far longer respectively.
Notably with decking, a number of contaminants can begin to take root and grow. Moss, mold and algae commonly thrive on, in and around wooden structures, especially when in damp conditions. Over time one or more of these will begin to degrade the integrity of the wood. As these growths become more prevalent, the wood only worsens until it rots away. Cleaning away these contaminants ensures that this doesn’t happen, leaving your decking to last much longer.
