typically treated with penetrative oils or some form of sealer. The
treatment/maintenance/re-treatment for oiled and sealed decks are
considerably different, so please make sure you know what treatment is
currently on your deck.
We encourage you
to think of your deck as beautiful wooden furniture - which it is. If you have ever had Teak
or other wooden furniture which you use outside and is exposed to the elements,
you will know how important it is to oil the furniture regularly in order to
keep it looking as beautiful as that day you purchased it. Your deck is no
So - the basics: Keep the deck clean. This means two things -
firstly, make sure you keep your deck clear of leaves and other organic
materials especially those which build up between the planks. This organic
matter will hold moisture and invite rot. Secondly, wash your deck regularly
(weekly - as you wash the floors in your home) with DeckWash -
assuming you have elected a penetrative oil treatment for your deck. This
product is specifically designed to be used with the treatments employed by
Timbermann in the preparation of your timber. DeckWash will clean and sanitise
your deck while feeding the timber with waxes. Regular use of DeckWash will
prolong the time between re-oiling of your deck.
Re-oiling: Consult your
installer as the which product was employed in the treatment of your timbers. It
is recommended that you use the same product when re-treating your deck. If you
purchased your deck from Timbermann, we probably used Silky Deck Dressing.
rule of thumb - the harder the wood, the more often treatment will be required.
This is because the oils penetrate hard timbers only slightly, where as more
porous timbers absorb more of the treatment. Re-oiling should be done whenever your
deck begins to look dry and/or faded. On soft timbers, use a brush and apply a
generous layer of oil. On hard timber, simply moisten a piece of mutton cloth
with the oil and wipe a thin layer of oil on the deck, or apply with a brush and
work the oil into a thin layer. Whatever oil you apply
should be absorbed within a few hours in the sun - or you have applied too much.
Do not treat your deck when rain is imminent.
After re-applying oils, continue
the following week with your Deckwash maintenance as before.
