Once the bark is taken off the tree the wood has no way of protecting itself.  The damaging effects of weather to unprotected wood can begin immediately.  Rain, melting snow and morning dew are quickly absorbed by unprotected wood causing it to swell.  The sun’s heat causes drying, which makes the wood shrink.  These cycles of wet and dry, swelling and shrinking, cause wood to warp, split, cup and crack – all of which lead to shortened wood life and expensive repairs and replacement.

  Having your wood cleaned and sealed/stained can double the life of your wood and make your wood look like new again.

 

Why You Should Not Pressure Wash Yourself

Some people think they will save money if they rent a pressure washer and use it to clean their deck, fence, house or patio themselves. There is a saying, you think a professional is expensive, try an amateur. Power washing a deck, fence or any outdoor structure requires the correct cleaning agents and chemicals and just as important, the correct technique. Learning is expensive.

Unless a homeowner has real experience pressuring washing for residential or commercial clients, they should leave home power washing to a professional. It is not easy as it looks and can be dangerous and financially costly if done incorrectly. If you haven’t used one before, you may not understand the power behind a pressure washer. If you use the wrong amount of pressure, the wrong pressure tip, get too close to the surface or the wrong ceaners you could damage your deck, fence, or the siding on your home. Damage occurs in a blink of an eye.

It is better to allow home power washing to be done by a contractor with a lot of experience. This will save money and time. Having to hire someone to repair or replace damage to your home is expensive, time consuming and can be very inconvenient. It is okay to ask for help, especially when it comes to the delicate task of cleaning and staining wood.
