A decorative, colored pool deck is an inviting area surrounding the pool that not only provides a functional space for sunbathing but also a perfect place for pool party and barbecuing. Over time, pool decks, whether you own a pool in Cypress or in other city, tend to look dirty due to mildew and mold growth. The black mildew grows more in areas where there is high humidity, i.e. near the pool. That’s why experts recommend that homeowners should get their pool decks deep cleaned and disinfected at least twice a year to prevent slipperiness & spread of any disease and must perform monthly cleaning to maintain the original look of their pool deck. So, here the tips to clean your pool deck area:
#Tip 1: Preparing the Pool Deck Area: Remove all of the items such as furniture, plants and water toys around the deck before starting your cleaning process.
#Tip 2: Preparing Cleaning Material: The first step in cleaning pool deck is to produce your own effective deck cleaner. Take a large bucket and fill it with warm water and add a small amount of mild bleach or mild degreasing soap. You can also get algae killer and surface cleaner in the market for cleaning decks. After mixing the water and bleach mixture properly, apply it over the deck area using a fiber-based mop.
#Tip 3: Scrubbing & Rinsing: When you have applied the cleaning solution all over the pool deck, it's now time to scrub it thoroughly using scrub broom. This process will help you to remove dirt, mildew or grime from the deck area. For removing stubborn stains use more degreasing soap with scrub brush. After scrubbing you need to rinse off the chemicals and dirt by using pressure washer. This process ensures your deck is completely filth-free.
#Tip 4: Sealing the to Prevent Future Stains: After cleaning the deck, let it dry for sometime, then apply a saturating coat of a sealer to seal the pores and harden the deck material by using a garden sprayer. The sealer will not only provide stain resistance layer for your deck but will also prevent mildew growth by keeping mold spores & water out of the deck pores.
