How to Get Your Deck Ready For Warmer Weather

When the weather starts getting warmer, it’s time to get your deck ready! After all, it’s the perfect place to relax and get some fresh air with family and friends.  So here’s how to makes sure your deck is in tip-top shape for all your spring and summer plans.

Clean Off Any Debris

Fall and winter can leave behind plenty of backyard droppings on your deck.  Start by sweeping or blowing off any leaves, branches, and any other debris.  

Clean Any Furniture 

Scrub down and rinse off all your furniture items so that they are fresh and clean and ready to be enjoyed by you and your guests.  Put any cushions that can fit in your washing machine, power wash outdoor rugs, empty and clean any planters, and throw out anything that isn’t salvageable. 

Scrub the Deck Down

How you clean your deck depends on what your deck is made from.  Typically, power washing is your best option or scrub it down yourself with a long-handled scrub brush and a brand of deck cleaner.

Replace or Add New Furniture

If you need to get new furniture, make sure to get items that compliment your deck and your home.  Find pieces that are durable, comfortable, and fit your overall vision.  


Add pops of color and comfort to your deck space with outdoor pillows, rugs, and accessories.  Adding fresh plants adds a sense of freshness, vibrancy, and a nice natural scent.  If you plan on entertaining at night make sure to add some fun lights.
