You’ve thoroughly cleaned your home and are expecting a crowd that you’ll be entertaining over the weekend. Then you look at your deck and think about keeping everyone indoors for the get-together. There’s no need to worry if your deck is looking a bit weathered and rough. A simple phone call to a reliable, trustworthy deck cleaning and sealing company is all you’ll need to get your deck looking its best for your special outdoor event.
The best advice is to call someone who will do your deck cleaning in the most thorough and gentle way possible, even if cleaning takes several steps to accomplish. You don’t simply want someone coming out and blasting dirt and grime away with pressure washers. Having this done can cause potential damage to your beautiful wood.
It’s best to rely on a professional cleaning service who will take the extra time and care needed to thoroughly clean the deck, and will then use a protective sealer to protect your deck from elements like rain, UV rays, mold and mildew. A good quality protective finish will also protect your deck from future dirt buildup by sealing the wood pores.
Get Your Deck Entertainment Ready In Just A Few Steps
Once you’ve had your deck carefully and professionally cleaned, a few more easy steps will have you ready for outdoor entertaining. Here are some good steps to follow to get ready:
– Make sure you have enough seating for everyone. This might mean adding more portable seating depending on how many you’re planning to entertain.
– Pay attention to lighting if you plan to stay outdoors after dusk. Good portable lighting can include battery operated lights, rope lighting if it’s bright enough to add quality light and even solar lighting that has been thoughtfully placed around the area.
– Citronella candles or other types of attractive pest repellents are a good idea to keep bugs away and to let everyone safely enjoy the outdoors.
– Pillows are a must on chairs and benches. Find beautiful pillows that will add to your decor and keep everyone more comfortable as they relax outdoors.
Entertain In Confidence
By following these helpful steps you’ll soon be on your way to entertaining with confidence. You’ll look forward to your outdoor get-together and be able to concentrate on making wonderful good weather memories.
