Pressure washing services for decks and boat docks are always in demand, as it is the best way to keep surfaces clean by removing debris such as mud, dirt, mould, oil, and grease. The other main benefit of pressure washing decks and docks is that is also helps to preserve the longevity of wood.
While pressure washing is a very effective means of removing unsightly debris from hard surfaces, such as metal and concrete, when it comes to wood decks and boat docks, care must be taken when applying pressurised water. This is because wood is a soft surface that can be damaged when pressure washing or power washing using streams of hot water.
To avoid damaging wood decks and docks, a pressure washing wand that has a wide tip is used; that allows the operator to adjust water pressure as needed. This allows pressure washing technicians to adjust the stream of water to a medium or low force, to clean wood decks and docks without causing any damage.
It is recommended to hire professional cleaners to pressure wash wood decking and boat docks to avoid wood damage. Experienced pressure washing technicians not only understand the safe range to use on wood, between 500-700 psi, but will also follow the grain of the wood when applying pressurised water.
Steady, even strokes are used to remove debris and mildew from the surfaces of wooden decks and docks. When done properly, pressure washing wood decks and boat docks can produce amazing results.
