Did you know that May is Deck Safety Awareness month?
That’s right, In 2006 NADRA, The North American Deck and Railing Association declared May as Deck Safety Month. This deck safety program is an effort to improve deck safety awareness all over the country. Now you may be asking how deck safety and deck maintenance are related — the answer is simple. A deck that has been cared for and well-maintained is less likely to become a safety hazard from outside influences such as rot, and decay. This is especially the case with wooden decks.
A well-built and well-maintained deck can provide years of enjoyment to you and your family. However, an improperly built or deteriorated structure can mean disaster. Here at Renew Crew of Charlotte, we specialize in keeping your outdoor structures looking, and functioning, at their best. We seal and maintain new decks, and can protect and revive existing decks to their former splendor. Over time, and exposure to the elements your deck can become degraded. An unwashed deck is an invitation to mold and mildew, which can cause rot. This degradation, if left to its own devices, can damage the surface of your deck and influence the structural integrity of the deck as well. From dangerous splintering, to cracking and warping — each of which can lead to a domino effect of decay and create an unsafe environment for you and your loved ones.
Did you also know one in four homes in North Carolina has a wood deck?
That’s right, so odds are that you may have one affixed to your home. Renew Crew of Charlotte is specialized in cleaning and sealing wooden decks. While wooden decks, particularly pressure-treated decks, were initially considered to be maintenance-free, most families now understand the importance of preserving the wood from the detrimental effects of the elements — that’s where Renew Crew comes into play.
Renew Crew of Charlotte can restore your wood to like-new condition by using our environmentally safe cleaner and protectant. Through our exclusive 3-step cleaning and sealing process to combat both time and the elements. We begin with a pre-soak foam which loosens the grime that has built up on the surfaces. Unlike outdoor cleaners that most pressure washing companies use, ours is environmentally friendly and won’t cause any damage to plants, animals or your home. This is followed by a non-damaging controlled pressure rinse. However, it is our third and final step, which truly sets us apart from other deck cleaning companies. We take cleaning and exterior surface rejuvenation, for your deck, one step further by protecting it to repel harmful outdoor elements, including UV rays. Sealing is important because it not only makes your deck look its best, it also increases the life and integrity of the wood used to build your deck.
