Backyard Deck Before and After

Deck Cleaning

Outdoor decks are a cherished area in your home for entertaining guests and relaxing, but like any exterior space, they are exposed to changing weather and other natural forces, making them highly prone to getting dirty.

The first step in our deck cleaning process is to spray your deck with an environmentally safe solution that will kill the mold and algae living on the surface. The type of solution we choose is dependent on your decking material, so for example, the cleaner for Ipe or Mahogany wood decking contains a slightly different mixture than the solution we would use for composite decking.

We then begin to scrub the deck with thick bristle brushes to agitate the mold with our detergent. Once the deck is thoroughly scrubbed, we rinse the soap and debris off the deck with our low-pressure hose. This process helps to break down and kill the bacteria at the source, rather than at the surface alone, for a deeper clean that keeps your deck looking great longer.

It’s important to schedule regular professional cleanings to remove the buildup of mold, algae, and grime, in order to avoid costly repairs and maintain the longevity of your deck.

Deck Sanding, Sealing & Staining

In addition to cleaning, it’s greatly beneficial to periodically stain and seal your natural deck to keep it looking pristine and protect it from harsh environmental damage.

A wood stain helps to seal your deck against moisture helping you avoid problems like mold, mildew, and wood rot. These elements can cause your deck to splinter, crack or even collapse when left untreated for a prolonged amount of time.

After thoroughly cleaning the area to remove the dirt and debris on the surface, we then sand your deck to eliminate any wood splinters and ensure there are no ragged edges. When the wood is all smoothed out, it’s primed and ready for the stain. Gulf2Bay’s enhanced deck stain helps keep the moisture out, which is especially important in the winter as any moisture that seeps into the wood can freeze and cause damage. Applying a strong, solid seal will keep your deck protected.

Deck stains come in a variety of colors and tints, so whether you want to enhance the natural appearance of the wood, or transform it completely to fit a certain aesthetic, there is an option out there to suit your needs.

Long Lasting Protection

Applying a high-quality protective finish to your hardwood is essential to truly protect the material. Prior to coating, the entire area should be properly cleaned and any loose or damaged wood fibers should be removed with light sanding. All of our deep penetrating oil finishes are formulated to allow the wood to breathe, which is vital in working with exotic hardwoods such as mahogany, teak, Ipe, Brazilian Redwood, and many other species. 

Type of coatings deployed by Gulf2Bay SoftWash:

Penetrating Oil Finish

Sustainably harvested Brazilian Rosewood Oil that acts to nourish, protect, and stabilize the wood. Unlike high-solid wood stains that simply coat the surface, this unique formula is formulated to penetrate deep into the wood fibers which is the key to longevity and beauty. The pigments penetrate into the wood, protecting it from the inside out from the sun’s damaging rays with advanced mildew protection. It allows the wood to retain its flexibility, and creates no surface film that will crack, bubble or peel. Its transparent natural tone enhances the natural beauty of the wood, highlighting the grain.  

Brightening Prep 

In some cases for older wood, we first prep the area with a brightening liquid. The specialized formula is meant to reduce the hard mill glaze found on most hardwoods and opens the wood pores for better penetration of the finishing oil. 

Transparent Hardwood Coating

Utilizes an innovative blend of deep penetrating natural oils, waterborne alkyd-urethane hybrid resin technology, and polymerized silicone for superior surface and internal water repellency. This advanced combination allows for natural oils and resins to penetrate deep into the fibers of the wood without blocking the pores. Designed to provide a protective yet breathable water and UV resistant barrier that enhances and preserves the rich exotic look of hardwoods. 

Penetrating Oil Finish Stain & Sealer

Penetrating, oil-based, semi-transparent wood stain and sealer in one. This formulation offers first-class protection from water, mold, mildew, and damaging UV rays. No sanding or stripping is required for reapplication. Available in Natural Cedar, Transparent Redwood, Mission Brown, and Dark Walnut.
