Decking

Many homes throughout East Anglia, Norfolk and Suffolk and into London have had timber decking installed and the transformation can be dramatic.

Popularised by countless home makeover shows and magazines it has enduring popularity for it look and natural appeal. However what is not regularly mentioned is the regular maintenance that is required to keep that expensive decked area in prime condition.

The natural timbers loose the embedded oils and the ribbed pattern on the surface is a natural place for moisture to aid in breeding algae and moss growth. Once the accumulation of dirt and algae spores settle into the decking it can become very slippery indeed as well as general unsightly and unappealing .

Smartdriveways can effectively clean and remove all green growth and ingrained dirt with our professional level pressure washing machines that will leave the decking looking like new.

We must emphasise that decking requires more care and attention when undertaking a pressure wash as careless use of a lance can cause banding or striping to the timbers,we use a combination of our rotary headed cleaner and then a tidy up with the lance at lower pressure but will effectively clean your deck without any problems.

The general wear and tear of foot traffic combined with the suns UV rays soon dry the timbers out and we recommend following the clean, after allowing a suitable drying time, we apply Liberon decking oil to keep the timber natural oiled and in tip top condition. If your decking is in an extremely sunny location then we recommend a twice yearly application of decking oil.

We also undertake a regular maintenance programme for commercial operations, pubs, clubs, garden centre cafes etc,  that have public access to a timber decked area to reduce/eliminate any issues arising from someone slipping over due to poor maintenance and the associated legal implications.

Whilst cleaning your decked patio we can also clean wooden garden furniture that can become laden with algae etc over the winter period.
