Tips for cleaning deck and maintaining with decking oil

I do not what is put on the deck right now and it is always dusty.

Looks like it's painted brown color.

 

I wanted to make it look natural and to avoid dust and easy maintenance.

 

Looking for suggestions with Tips and tools for DIY.

Re: tips for cleaning deck and maintaining with decking oil

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @vjkusagur. It's wonderful that you've joined us, and many thanks for your question on deck maintenance.

 

Is this a timber deck? I can't quite tell from the image, but it almost looks like it could be some type of synthetic product. Can you tell if the boards are similar to plastic?

 

Is your home situated in a very dusty environment? Dust is something that falls onto a deck, and I'm not sure if your coating is going to solve that. How often do you clean the deck?

 

If you don't like the current look of the coating, then you would need to remove it by sanding it off. You should find these step-by-step guides helpful: How to sand a deck and How to oil a deck. Just so you know, if this is a synthetic product, you can't sand or oil it.

 

Please let me know if you have questions.

Hi 

thanks for your response.

yes it’s timber and the previous owner has painted it Brown Color.

I was wondering if I can remove the paint and oil the deck.

Re: tips for cleaning deck and maintaining with decking oil

You certainly can sand the deck @vjkusagur.

 

You'll find this step-by-step guide useful: How to sand a deck. We hire floor sanders that will make the job much easier than doing it with hand tools. Once you've removed all the paint, you can follow this guide: How to oil your deck.

 

Keep us updated and let us know if you have any questions. We are looking forward to seeing your deck transformation.

 

Mitchell
