Many homeowners have had decking installed as a garden feature. Most of these decking installations have taken place in the last 20 years as decking has been regularly featured on gardening shows on television.
Decking does make garden maintenance easier as there are less 'green' areas to grow once it has been installed. The biggest headache with decking is that it often becomes a haven for green algae and moss to flourish. In damp or wet conditions, the algae and moss can make the decking extremely slippery, which can make it difficult and dangerous to walk on.
The best way to stop the decking getting too slippery is to clean off any moss or algae on a regular basis. Drive-Reviver have invested in the right decking cleaning equipment to ensure the wood gets cleaned without causing any damage or 'furring'. Our petrol driven Mosmatic rotary surface cleaner will lift ingrained dirt out of your decking, leaving a clean, undamaged, 'tiger stripe' free deck. We would certainly recommend protecting the decking further by applying a good quality decking oil or stain. We can quote for and provide this service upon request.
