How to Get Started: Before diving into the cleaning process, it's essential to tidy up the area you're working on. Start by removing any large objects from the decking and sweeping away loose dirt. This not only makes the job easier but also ensures a more thorough clean.

Cleaning Technique: Once your pressure washer is ready to go, approach the clean-up methodically. Start by cleaning one board at a time, maintaining a distance of 5-10 inches from the wood surface. Move the water stream along the grain of the wood to avoid causing damage. Repeat this process until you've cleaned the entire surface, then go back over any darker patches to ensure a consistent clean.

Conclusion: With the right equipment and technique, restoring your decking is easier than you might think. By following the steps outlined in this guide, you can say goodbye to the green, dirty look and hello to the tidy decking you've always wanted. So don't wait any longer – get started today and reclaim your outdoor space!
