Wood fencing and wood or composite decks are a considerable investment. Periodic maintenance will keep your wood and composites looking new for years to come. Without maintenance, wood and composites become more challenging to clean. So, when it comes to pressure washing, you will defiantly want a professional to perform this task because water pressure is the enemy of these substrates. They can be easily damaged and scored by using incorrect tips, pressures, as well as improper techniques. Having your wood or composite scored or destroyed is not the results anyone wants to achieve. Specialized tips, providing proper pressure along with careful, accurate fluid technique is imperative. Properly cleaning exterior wood surfaces takes experience and a bit of skill.

Hidden Gem gently cleans first with a low pressure removing dirt, some of the old dead wood fibers, as well as older sealants/stains that may remain. Then the pre-treating with the fantastic blend of nature’s building blocks, billions of microbes in BT-200 to the surface. This pre-treatment begins to deep clean into the pores of the wood or composite. Removing algae, mold, and fungus on and below surfaces safely by naturally bio-degrading the organic material converting it into harmless CO2. Then by lightly scrubbing with a brush to agitate the microbes into overdrive, we evaluate their progress. The deep cleaning microbial detergents break down and lift the mold and algae out of the pores of the wood. The final step is rinsing evenly with medium pressure thoroughly washing the grime away. Applying a post-treatment of BT-200 to keep cleaning for up to 72 hours, what a bonus!
