Pressure Washing your Deck

To properly clean your wood deck you will need to clear the deck of all furniture, plants, and other obstructions. You may want to get some plastic sheeting to cover plants and other items of interest. Lightly wet your deck with a garden hose. With a pump up garden sprayer you can purchase some deck cleaning solution from Lowes, Home Depot, or even Wal-Mart and spray over the area. Let set for about 10 minutes so the solution can emulsify the algea, mildew, fungus, dirt, oils, and grime. After the solution has had time to dwell use a pressure washer and the green tip (25° tip) and start rinsing the deck off using steady sweeping passes with the tip about 8 to 10 inches from the surface depending on the strength of your pressure washer. It generally works better if you wash in the same direction as the grain of the wood and do not use the narrow path of the stream of water as it could cut into your wood.

Alternative Deck Wash

As an alternative to a deck wash you can use TSP, Dishsoap, and water and make your own mixture. You may need to test it until you have a mixture in the propotions you are happy with.

Let the deck dry for 24 to 48 hours before staining or sealing.
