With summer right around the corner, many of us anticipate fun in the sun. And that fun usually includes time with family and friends in and around the swimming pool. The smiles and laughter, the splishes and splashes, and many good memories await! Is your swimming pool and the surrounding pool deck ready for fun in the sun? Our pools naturally receive a lot of attention, but the surrounding concrete sometimes gets ignored. When you have a couple of minutes, step outside and take a good look at your pool deck. How does it look? If you notice surface discoloration and that it’s not as clean and bright as is used to be, the culprits are likely one or more of these:

  •   Algae
  •   Mold
  •   Mildew
  •   Calcium build-up
  •   Dust and embedded dirt particles

Whether your pool deck has gone months without use or receives frequent use, all pool decks need a refresh now and then. Your consistent upkeep will reward you with a beautiful, healthy space, while continuing to sustain the value of your property. Win-win! And who doesn’t want a splashier, happier summer?!

Let’s dive in and look at three benefits of pool deck cleaning:

  •   Health and safety
  •   Welcoming atmosphere
  •   Maintaining value

Health and Safety

Spring warmth and summer humidity create a perfect environment for algae, mildew and mold to flourish. Knowing how they can affect your pool deck, it quickly becomes clear that we have some work to do. Left to their own devices, algae, mildew and mold can, amongst other things, aggravate allergies and asthma, not to mention the odor, making both hosts and guests miserable. A professional power-washing can easily get rid of those nasty irritants.

Something else to consider is the slippery surface caused by algae, mildew and mold. No matter how many times we remind kids not to run around the pool, inevitably, someone will forget and excitedly take a running jump into the water. The concern is slipping and falling when the surface is slimy with algae, mildew and mold. A regular professional pool deck cleaning will provide you peace of mind. No need to worry about a neighbor’s child or one of your own slipping and hurting themselves! Our trusted experts can soon have your pool area sparkling and safe again, by using our time-tested power-washing techniques.

No doubt about it. A clean pool deck will add to the overall health of your family. If your deck is clean, your family will want to spend more time outside. Which will, in turn, boost everyone’s immune system, promoting health and well-being by improving moods and outlook! Summer is a wonderful time to soak in cheery sunshine and breathe in fresh air.

Welcoming Atmosphere

Following months of isolation, we are eager to get together with people in person! (Those Zoom pool parties didn’t work so well!) Many of your friends and extended family members will want to come over to spend time with you around your beautiful pool area. Once we give it the TLC it deserves, you can face the summer social schedule with confidence. You won’t need to worry or even bat an eyelash when family members invite friends over at the last minute. Everyone will feel comfortable. And when they leave, they will feel refreshed from their time by the pool. 

Maintaining Value

When people decide to sell their home, there are countless details to consider and deal with quickly. And, understandably, pool deck maintenance may not be a high priority. Most likely, it is toward the bottom of the To Do list. However, a clean home makes an amazing impression, and a bright pool deck as well as other concrete surfaces will definitely put your home above others that aren’t as clean.

Give us a call, and we can save you time and stress by taking care of your pool deck for you! Because of our experience and affordable pricing, your pool deck can maintain its beauty and value as long as you own your home. A thorough deck cleaning prevents damage and expense caused by years of renegade mold and mildew. Then, if and when you decide to move, all you will need to do with your pool is jump in for a refreshing break after a long day of packing, and then step back with pride while potential buyers admire your impressive pool area

Conclusion

One of the best things you can do for the outdoor space on your property is maintain a beautiful swimming pool area. You should only need a thorough pool deck cleaning every two to three years; if you have a lot of shade, you may notice discoloration annually. Our crew knows exactly how much pressure to use and will treat your deck carefully and professionally.
