How To Renew The Look Of Your Deck Without Replacing The Lumber
If your deck is still in good shape but looks weathered on the surface, power washing can renew the look of the lumber. Wood darkens over time as it's exposed to the elements. Problems like algae can also cause a wood deck to take on a dark appearance. So there is a great chance that all it needs is a good pressure cleaning.
In fact, our New Jersey power washing pros at TruClean renew the look of decks, fences, cedar siding, and other exterior wooden surfaces all the time. Before you decide to replace the deck, call a power washing company first. Ask them to take a look at your deck to see if this is all you need. It is well worth getting a free estimate to find out.

What To Do About Deck Algae
Algae will use a wooden deck as food. The problem is very similar with moss. Once this microorganism starts growing, it quickly takes over all the surfaces of your natural and man-made landscape if the area is shady. Mold and leaf mildew is often present as well. What we're trying to say is that you really have to keep up with the deck cleaning if you see it turning green or blackish.
Again, your best bet is to call a professional power washing company because the solutions we use deters algae growth for some time. For the safety of wood of your deck and for long-lasting results, let a pro like us power wash the deck.
