Below are the Dyson Painters Hobart tips for getting your deck ready for summer!
Start with Cleaning
– Give your deck a good clean and scrub. You want to clear everything off your deck so that you can give it a good once over. Bunnings has a big range of deck cleaning products available here. Make sure that you follow the instructions on the deck cleaner carefully. You don’t want to damage your deck. After your deck is clean, you’ll have a better idea of how much maintenance it requires. You’ll want to allow the deck time to dry before you move onto the next stage.
Check for Repairs
– Now it’s time to give your deck a good once over and look for any repairs or maintenance it may require. Check to make sure that there are no rough patches, no nails or screws sticking out, loose boards, or rotting boards. If you’re handy with a hammer, then now is a great time to tidy up your deck. If not, call a professional to give it the once-over.
Sand, Oil, Stain or Paint
– Your deck is ready for sanding now if it’s required. The condition of your deck will determine how much sanding it needs. Get your oil, stain, or paint ready after you’ve sanded and followed the instructions. New decks will require staining and oiling more often for the first year. Weather conditions also play a big part in determining how much attention your deck will require.
– Now it’s time to put all the furniture and the BBQ back in place. This is a great time to think about upgrading/updating the outdoor furniture or BBQ. A new look for summer!
That’s it! Simple and easy tips for preparing your deck for summer. Sit back with a cold beer, a glass of wine, or glass of water and enjoy your new deck, we know all your friends will!
