Seasonal Deck Maintenance Checklist
As the seasons change, it's important to maintain your deck to ensure it remains in good condition. Start by sweeping away any debris or dirt that may have accumulated. Inspect the deck for any damage, including cracks or rotting wood, and check the railings and stairs for stability. Clean the deck using a pressure washer or deck cleaner solution, then apply a protective coating or sealant to prevent damage from weather and UV rays. Trim any nearby trees or bushes that may be encroaching on the deck and check for signs of insect infestation or damage from pests. Inspect your deck furniture for any damage or wear and tear, and remove any standing water or debris that may accumulate. Finally, store any outdoor cushions or accessories in a dry place to prevent damage from weather.
