Caring for your deck by having professional cleaning and deck staining is an important part in maintaining its life and beauty. Since a deck is a horizontal surface, it is at the mercy of the elements. Wood left exposed to sun and moisture will quickly begin to degrade. If you leave your deck untreated, you can expect it to turn gray with age warp, and split. If you ignore the necessary cleaning and maintenance, you’ll have to make major repairs or even replace sections.
• Dirt and debris are the food source for mold and should be professionally cleaned periodically. The sun UV rays break down the surface fibers, causing wood to weaken and turn gray during the process. Rain and snow soak the surface causing the wood to swell excessively, and eventually leading to the breakdown of the internal fibers. Once this happens, the wood becomes spongy and weak. Regular usage and foot traffic will complicate the problem even more.
There is a definite technique for power washing and staining. If not done correctly, you can damage or scar wood. Not utilizing the appropriate equipment and technique can be a costly mistake to repair, or even replace.
• If you have chosen composite decking, it too must be cleaned and maintained. If it is not power washed regularly, common mold and dirt can heavily stain the composite material and damage its appearance.
Staining is a multi-step process to prepare and clean the wood, and then seal it against damage. Removing dirt and mold are essential. If a new deck has never been stained, it has special preparation needs.

“I couldn’t be more pleased, impressed and grateful to X-Stream Power Wash and their exceptional work/business ethics!!! My initial contact with owner, Mike Davis, was highly positive. Mike took liberal time to explain the process and chemicals used to clean and remove years of mold and debris from the brick and siding on my home. After completion of power washing, I was amazed, astonished and completely delighted to see the years of mold and debris removed from the siding and brick! –Juli Lepage
I can’t believe they came out the weekend I needed them, and beat the “other guy” by half! Thanks X-Stream! You are amazing!
Mike was very professional and courteous. His company was the only one that offered an actual scrub brush cleaning of my white gutters and he offered it at a great price. I had severe mildew stains on my gutters and Mike had them back to sparkling white. My wife and I were very pleased with Mike and his service. Would definitely use again.

X-stream Power Wash did a great job on our outdoor play-set. Mike was very easy to work with and the play-set looked great when he was done sanding, tightening, and staining it. He is very reliable and his pricing is reasonable. It was a pleasure doing business with Mike.

X-Stream power wash has done a great job at my home. I have had them power wash the deck and then stain it. They have also power washed my house, which has remained clean after two years. After my initial good experience, I hired them to paint my kitchen area. All work has been performed in a professional and timely manner. I will definitely contact this business again when I need paint or power washing services.

I found the owner to be very professional. I had my window sealed due to a water leak and he went above and beyond the call of duty.
