● Remove Dirt & Debris: Sweep off any dirt, debris, and leaves accumulated on the surface. If they become wet, it might cause a mold issue or other decay when spring comes around. Pay attention to the areas between the boards too. Dirt and debris love getting caught there.
● Clean the Surface and the Railings: Wash off the surface of any mold, bird droppings, etc. You can use some warm water with some non-bleaching dish soap gently scrub away any of these stubborn spots. Do one final rinse with the water to make sure there’s no lingering soap.
