It’s that time of year again where the season will be changing from fall to winter soon. The weather in northern Utah this time of year can affect decks made of natural materials. Whether it’s from inclement weather, ice deposits that become trapped or the freeze-thaw effect, these conditions can potentially transform a minor imperfection in your deck into a major problem.

Winterize Your Deck

Are you winterizing your current deck for the change in season? It’s a good idea to thoroughly clean your deck and look for any signs of mold and mildew that might cause long-term discoloration of the material. You can find mildew removers for decks along with a deck cleaner at your local hardware store. Spray down the deck with a garden sprayer and clean it well. When it comes time to shovel snow off your deck, be sure to shovel along the length of the deck boards using a shovel with a hard plastic edge to help prevent damage to your deck.
