As the days grow longer and the weather warms up, it’s time to turn our attention to preparing our outdoor spaces for spring. Cleaning your decking is crucial not only to enhance its appearance but also to ensure it remains a safe and enjoyable place for your spring and summer activities. An effective spring clean can significantly extend the longevity of your decking, making it a worthwhile task as we step into the brighter months.

Inspect and prepare your decking

Before diving into the cleaning process, it’s essential to give your decking a thorough inspection. Look out for any signs of damage, loose boards, or areas that might need repair. Such precautions are necessary to ensure the structure’s integrity before applying any cleaning solutions.

For tackling dirt and grime, we recommend our Monty Patio Cleaner. A go-to solution designed to be tough on stains yet safe for your decking.

Choosing the right cleaning solutions

The choice of cleaning solution greatly depends on your decking material. While a mild dish soap solution might suffice for regular dirt, seasonal deep cleaning demands something more robust, like our Monty Patio Cleaner. It’s specifically formulated to handle the tough stuff – algae, mildew, moss – without the need for high-pressure washing, which can harm your decking.

Efficient cleaning techniques

For a cleaning method that ensures your decking is spotless without any mess, noise, or damage, soft brushing combined with the right cleaner is key. Our piece on How to Clean Decking Without Mess, Noise, or Damage offers detailed insight into achieving the best results without compromising the decking material.
