Keep Your Pool Deck Looking Brand New All Summer


Keeping your pool deck looking brand new all summer is easier than you think. With a few simple steps and some products from your local pool store, you can keep the area surrounding your pool in tip-top shape for years to come. Here are our top tips for keeping your pool deck looking great all summer long:

Power wash your deck every few weeks to keep it clean and shiny.

Power wash your deck every few weeks to keep it clean and shiny.

A pressure washer with a long, sweeping nozzle is best for power washing a pool deck. Make sure that the pressure washer is working properly before starting. You can test it by spraying water on an inconspicuous area of your deck or concrete slab. If bubbles appear, there are air pockets in the pump and hose assembly; these will need to be removed before use.

Also check that all hoses are securely connected; if any portion of the system comes loose during use, you risk injury or property damage as well as an unhappy wife who doesn’t want her new couch ruined!

In addition to using a pressure washer with a long sweeping nozzle, make sure that you’re using cleaners made specifically for pool decks so they won’t damage them over time (regular household cleaners contain chemicals that could harm your expensive deck materials). Avoid using bleach-based cleaners as well—they may stain certain types of synthetic resin surfaces permanently!

Choose a sealant for your pool deck based on your local climate and the type of material used in building the deck.

When it comes to choosing a sealant for your pool deck, there are three things you should keep in mind:

  • The climate of your area. What kind of weather does your region get? If it’s extremely cold or hot, you’ll want something that can withstand those extremes. (Think about how much snow and ice gets dumped on decks in colder climates.) Likewise, if you live somewhere with severe heat and sun exposure (think Houston), then a tougher sealant might be more appropriate than one that’s not as sturdy.
  • The material used in building the deck. Is it concrete? Wood? Vinyl? Each material has different properties and will require its own type of sealant to protect against wear and tear over time—for example, concrete cracks easily when exposed to moisture so choose something strong enough to stand up against heavy rains but still allow water penetration so plants don’t die due to lack of hydration—and some types tend toward discoloration over time while others don’t; wood tends not only toward discoloration but also splintering due specifically from exposure to moisture so again choose wisely! And vinyl is especially susceptible because unlike other materials which have their own natural oils present even after construction finishes drying out completely before sealing occurs–vinyl must be treated with additional chemicals like acrylics/silicones before sealing begins otherwise these surfaces become brittle quickly due again mostly exposure where sunlight reflects off them directly onto nearby surfaces causing damage–so make sure whatever product

Cleaning up debris from the pool deck will keep both the pool and the surrounding area clean.

It’s important to keep your pool deck clean, even if it’s not directly involved in the swimming process. Cleaning up debris from the pool deck will help to keep both your pool and surrounding areas clean. Debris can cause algae growth, clogging up everything from filters to skimmers to pumps. Even if you’re not a fan of algae, there are other issues that can arise from having too much debris around the pool:

  • It can get into the water and clog filters or skimmers
  • It can get sucked into pumps (causing them to overheat)
  • And worst-case scenario: it’ll get sucked by an unsuspecting swimmer!

Use protective coverings to protect furniture and other items on the pool deck from sun damage.

For the best protection, use a cover that is specifically designed to shield your furniture and other items on the pool deck from sun damage. These covers are made of polyethylene or polypropylene and have UV inhibitors to prevent discoloration and fading, as well as water-resistant material that keeps water in or out of the cover depending on whether it’s sunny or rainy outside. They also come in different weights, so make sure to pick one appropriate for your climate (heavyweight for colder climates).

You should remove your furniture covers when not using them so they don’t get damaged before next season. If you have any questions about how to store them properly between seasons, ask a professional at your local pool store!

Use protective coverings to prevent stains on the pool deck.

One way to keep your pool deck looking brand new all summer is by using protective coverings. There are many different kinds of covers that you can use on your pool deck, depending on what kind of protection you are looking for. If you want to prevent stains on the pool deck, there are coverings made out of rubber or vinyl that will help capture any dirt and dust before it can settle onto your decks surface. If you want to protect from sun damage, then there are covers that reflect UV rays and heat from the sun away from the surface of the decking material. Rainproofing is another benefit provided by some types of pool covers as well; this protects against rain water seeping into cracks in the wood which could lead cause them further damage once exposed again after removing them later on down the road when seasonal changes occur again next year!

Keep an eye on plants or trees that could be a threat to your pool deck, or that could cause damage if they grow too close to it.

Another thing to keep an eye on is trees and plants that could be a threat to your pool deck. If there are any trees or plants that are close by, you will want to trim them regularly so they don’t grow too close to the deck and cause damage. If you don’t trim them, they will eventually begin growing towards the pool – which can cause major problems!

If you notice that there are any trees or plants that need pruning so they don’t interfere with your pool area, it’s important to take action right away!

Keep an eye out for cracks in your pool deck so you can repair them before they get too big.

One of the most important things to do when maintaining your pool deck is keeping an eye out for cracks. As you walk across the deck, be sure to look down at the surface and check for signs that a crack has developed. If you see cracks in your pool deck, it is important to repair them before they get too big. Cracks can be repaired using epoxy, if they are not too deep or too wide. If you have a large crack, fill in as much space as possible with epoxy and smooth over it with sandpaper until no rough edges remain.

With these tips you’ll be able to enjoy your pool all summer long!

Summer is the time to enjoy your pool. But there’s something else that happens in summer. It’s called “pool deck maintenance,” or keeping the surface of the pool deck looking brand new all summer long.

So how do you keep a nice looking pool? Here are some tips and tricks for how to make your pool deck look like new all summer long:

  • Use a brush to remove dirt and debris from cracks, crevices, and corners. This will help prevent stains from forming as well as prevent mold growth in these areas. It’s easier to clean when you can see what you’re doing!
  • Sweep with a broom daily before hosing off the area with water (make sure it’s dry first). This will remove sticky things like soda spills or melted ice cream drips that get stuck on there over time which can lead to ugly yellowing stains if left untreated!
