Dear Homeowners:

A wooden deck that is properly cared for will add to the value and appearance of your home. Without protection, wood rapidly deteriorates from the following elements:

  • Water

    Water is absorbed into the wood via rain and snow and washes out the natural wood resins and color. Freeze / thaw cycles can splinter, crack and warp the wood. Water promotes algae, mold and mildew growth, which can rot the wood.
  • Sunlight

    Ultraviolet (UV) rays bleach the fibers in the wood and break down the linen that keeps the wood together, therefore, giving the deck a gray weathered look.
  • Mold, Mildew, Algae and Fungus

    Wood and moisture are a natural food source for mold, mildew, algae, and fungus. This generally causes a black, green, or gray discoloration
  • Contamination

    Contamination comes in a form of food, dirt, atmospheric pollution, etc. This is a good food source for mold, mildew, algae, and fungus.
  • Why and When to power wash your deck

    • Four Seasons wooden deck services will protect and guard your deck from contaminates such as mold, mildew, algae, and nature's harsh elements: sunlight (UV) exposure and water, which can cause wood to splinter, warp, and rot.
    • Four Seasons will pressure wash and clean your deck to remove all contaminates on the surfaces. An application of a clear sealing deck care preservative product is applied, that will help give your deck back its natural resins and return to its natural color. The sealed deck will provide water repellency and protection through the long winter months.
    • Four Seasons recommends that you power wash and seal your deck annually (spring I summer) to maintain proper deck protection.
