Make Decks Look New With Pressure Washing

Pressure Washing Decks of a Log Home

It’s that time of year when we’re scrambling to get that long home ownership to do list done before snow flies. The three major things on that list were:

✔︎ Pressure Washing 3 Decks ✔︎ Installing 3 New French Doors ✔︎Adding A Cooking Grate To Fire Pit

I can add a check mark to the pressure washing and the cooking grate, also ¾ of a check mark beside the door installs, 2 of the 3 are in. Wow it makes me feel good knowing we got to it almost done, and by we I mean my hubby and son, before winter blows into the area.

I normally have a to do list for hubby; I mention the things that need to be done and then I sit back and wait, and wait. I mention it again then give up. Then out of the blue he up and tackles the project without any warning and that was the case with pressure washing.

I’m one of those people that need to be prepared. Just tell me the day before so I have time to absorb it and come to terms with there will be a mess and I’ll just have to get over it. But NOPE that was not the case all of a sudden here he comes on the bobcat with the pressure washer loaded into the bucket.

Now if I’d know I’d have already removed all the furniture and things from the decks, (maybe it’s a good thing I didn’t because he pressure washed the teak patio set too). I like to approach things with a clean working area but I know not everyone is like me and certainly my hubby is one of the other kinds of people.  So I just stood back and let it happen even though it wasn’t the way I would have done it.

He started on one side of the deck and just heaped all the things to the other side, and then did the same thing in reverse for the second half of the deck.  The job did get done and the wood looks like new again and somehow I managed to get through it, lol.

One good thing about owning a business is we have one of everything, the pressure washer included.  It only took about an hour to do all three decks and they look fantastic again.  With the wood back to it’s new color it brightens up the covered porch more than I would have imagined. Wow, just look at the before and after photo of how grimy it was actually looking.

Sometimes when you live with the situation over time you become numb to it’s flaws and I’m certainly to blame. I had no idea what a good cleaning could do for the decks. I guess it’s something to get around to once every ten years or so, lol.  I’ll be back to share the new French doors and fire pit cooking area with you soon.
