On day, you might notice a weird odor coming from beneath your outdoor deck. This is normal, but you’ll want to figure out how to get rid of the smell.
Your friends at StormAid Restoration, the premier home restoration company in the area, offers some tips on how to recapture the smell of your outdoor deck when it was first built.
First off, what caused this issue? Well, decaying leaves, branches and discarded food that fell under your deck, which could lead to growth of algae, are potential sources of these foul smells.
Getting Rid of the Smell
Identify the source. You will need to scrutinize, perhaps remove deck boards and do some hands-and-knees crawling. This alone makes it the most difficult part of the whole process of the exterior home restoration, particularly deck cleaning.
Next, you have to remove the cause. This is where you eliminate whatever the reason is for the bad odor. Find the decaying material and remove it. If there’s mold or mildew growth, scrub that area with a mixture of water and soap or a cleaning solution like bleach. Then, you might want to consider taking this a step further to practicing routine cleaning.
