Deck Washing Services
The Best Deck Washing Services in the Dayton Area
Has your deck slowly faded to grey? Has your “low maintenance” composite deck become covered with mold spots and algae? Has everyday weather and natural organics taken a toll on the looks of your once beautiful deck? Prestige is here to help bring back the original beauty of your deck. We can clean all types of decking systems:
- Vinyl & More
Depending on the type of decking material you have depends on the type of cleaning your deck will get. For a natural wood deck, our first procedure would be to apply a wood cleaner to help break down any dirt, grime, mold, mildew, algae, and organics. The wood cleaner is then brushed in, helping work the cleaner into the grain of the wood, then allowed to dwell.

After some dwell time, the deck is then low pressure washed to remove any of the dirt, grime, mold, mildew, algae, and organics. Low pressure is used as not to damage or scar the wood during pressure washing. Once all the deck has been pressure washed, the last step is to apply a wood brightener to help restore the natural beauty of the wood. This process makes the wood look as it did the day it was installed.
For composite decks, the process is just a little different. We first apply a wood cleaner with a microbial in it to help with mold and mildew spots that seem to be prevalent on composite decking systems. The same process for a regular deck washing continues from there as a low-pressure wash is used to remove any dirt, grime, mold, mildew, algae, and organics.
Once the pressure washing step is complete, your composite deck will look new again. This type of decking material is not as low maintenance as they claim. Annual or bi-annual cleaning is recommended to keep mold and mildew growth from forming. We have customers that we see every year for their composite decks and believe it or not, the decks do need cleaning.
Vinyl decking is as close to maintenance-free as it will get, but occasionally still needs cleaning. A microbial is applied to the deck and allowed to dwell. Once the cleaning solution has dwelled, the deck is then low pressure washed using hot water. The use of hot water allows helping emulsify dirt, grime, mold, mildew, algae, and organics. The use of hot water on wood or composite is not recommended as it can swell the grain of the wood, allowing for future paints, stains, and sealers to not properly adhere.
Once the low-pressure hot water washing is completed, your deck will be clean and sanitized for your enjoyment.
