Deck Cleaning

Is it okay to pressure wash a deck and is it better than the brush ?

If you use a smaller, less powerful unit, it works wonderfully. It also will clean the hell out of your teak. No amount of brush scrubbing can compare.

Deck Cleaning

Never use a pressure wand to clean a teak deck unless you are getting ready to replace the deck. The pressure will strip the soft wood out of the grain. The only way to clean a deck is to use a flat 3M pad once in a while. Roll Off is a good product to use. Also Teak Decking Systems has a cleaner that works well.
