Winter Deck Maintenance:

When it comes to winter Deck Maintenance for both wood and composite decks, there are a few key considerations. Here are some tips for each type:

For Wood Decks:

  1. Cleaned and Seal: Before winter, thoroughly clean your deck to remove dirt, debris, and stains. Apply a weatherproof sealant or stain to protect the wood from moisture, freezing, and thawing.

  2. Clear Snow and Ice: Promptly remove snow and ice from your wood deck using a plastic shovel or broom. Avoid using metal tools that can scratch or damage the surface.

  3. Prevent Water Accumulation: Ensure proper drainage by keeping gutters and downspouts clear. Avoid placing planters or other objects directly on the deck, as they can trap moisture and cause discoloration or rot.

For Composite Decks:

  1. Clean Regularly: Clean your composite deck regularly to prevent the buildup of dirt, debris, and mildew. Use a mild detergent and soft-bristle brush or sponge to gently scrub the surface.

  2. Avoid Abrasive Cleaners: Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners on composite decks, as they can cause damage or discoloration. Stick to gentle cleaning solutions recommended by the manufacturer.

  3. Remove Snow and Ice: Clear snow and ice from your composite deck using a plastic shovel or broom. Be cautious not to use metal tools that can scratch or damage the surface.

Remember, regular maintenance is key to keeping your deck looking its best. Enjoy your outdoor space!
