(Stream Pressure Cleaning)
Before the chill in the air turns into harsh Melbourne winter weather, it’s now time to clean and protect your house exterior including driveway, paths, tennis court, decking and patio surfaces and winterize your home for the long winter months ahead.
By being proactive now, you’ll lower your energy bills, increase the efficiency and lifespan of your home’s components, and make your property safer.
One area that may require special attention is your home’s decking. We recommend cleaning your deck areas to remove ground-in dirt and summer BBQ stains that can ruin the deck appearance and ultimately degrade the wood. Exposure to sun over summer may have also turned your wood grey and further exposure over the winter months will provide the perfect conditions for growth of mould, mildew, moss and algae.
After cleaning, it’s important to apply a water-repellent finish to protect your deck against the damaging effects of winter. Generally we recommend the use of a decking oil to penetrate deep into the pores and between the joints and connectors of the timber, preventing moisture damage.
Check with your Stream Team consultant to find out what products are best-suited for your deck depending on your deck’s usage, the amount of exposure to the elements, the type of oil previously applied and what species of wood it is made from.
