Staining a New Deck

 

Two-Toned Deck Stain

Now that your brand new deck is built it will need protection before you can enjoy it. While wooden decks enhance a property and allow property owners to appreciate outdoors, they do require regular maintenance in order to preserve their appearance. By sealing your deck shortly after installation you can avoid the deterioration process and extend the life of your deck!

Power washing and prepping the deck prior to application ensures maximum stain performance. The next step is sanding down all mill stamps on the new boards and on this particular deck also sanding the hand rails.The rails are Olympics Outside White, the field raisers are Olympics Cedar Solid, and the stripe/treads of the deck are Olympics Timberline Solid.

Envirowash took an old, worn out deck and gave it a makeover!

Unprotected Wood is Subject to Damage!

Not only does it make your deck look great but staining also improves its permanency.

The first step done by Envirowash for protecting the wood decking is to wash all decking areas to remove mold, mildew and other atmospheric pollutants using low pressure and heated water. The second step in protection is neutralizing the wood using a wood brightener. Washing and neutralizing the wood prepares it to be stained. The final step in protecting the wood is staining and sealing it. The railings and raisers are Olympics' Ebony Solid and the handrail caps and decking are Olympics' Butternut Solid.

Pressure Washing Garage Floor

Pressure Washing Garage Floor

Take a look at your #garage floor. It's probably not as clean as you want it to be. That just means you need the services of professionals like us to do the garage and drive way cleaning for you. You can be confident that we have the right tools and that we know the right procedures to get the job done. Using special surface cleaners, we can safely pressure wash the garage concrete floor without damaging drywall, appliances or the electrical outlets. Oil stains, grease, paint, chewing gum and many other contaminants can be removed safely using our proprietary citrus based degreaser. After rinsing thoroughly using low pressure hot water, we neutralize the surface to achieve a proper pH level. Once the surface is dry we can repair #cracks using our proprietary 2 part epoxy, then stain and/or seal the surface with a high quality sealant. There are many options to choose from depending on your lifestyle and performance needs. Pressure Washing Concrete/Exposed Aggregate Drive Way Your driveway is exposed to the elements of mother nature day in and day out 365 days a year. Atmospheric pollutants, mold and mildew, freeze/thaw cycles, oil and grease all play a role in the degradation of the driveway surface. Envirowash can protect your concrete driveway for years from the harsh environment by washing, repairing the cracks and sealing it using our 100% acrylic sealant. Professional Cleaning Services We are aware of the complicated nature of cleaning driveways and garages. The stains caused by chemicals and fluids from cars can be tough to remove. Using strong chemicals for cleaning can pose a threat to health and to the environment. We also do not want to use too much pressure with our power washers just to remove the dirt by sheer force. Our technicians have undergone training so that they can clean your drive way and your garage as thoroughly as possible, while using environmentally friendly materials and techniques. They can assess the kind of cleaning needed by your drive way and you can rest assured that they can perform what is needed. Some stains would be tougher to remove than others but you can count on us not to cut corners. Drive Way Stains You might not be aware that only 30% of stains in driveways are caused by vehicle fluids. Most of the stains that you can find there are caused by fungus, mildew and even mold. That means you could be taking those microorganisms inside your home when you walk over your dirty driveway. That alone is reason for you to get that drive way and your garage cleaned by our technicians.
