It’s Spring! At least mostly…. And there is no better time to clean your deck and get it ready for the season. In this episode, we talk all about what it takes to get that deck cleaned and ready for stain. We also talk with Rose Pest Solutions about a common outdoor pest: mosquitoes.
That and much more on this inaugural episode!
Shownotes for episode 001:
Cleaning the deck is a simple Spring project (or Summer or Fall!!). We ran you through the basics on the show today, but there's a lot more information out there. If you're interested, stop out at any RepcoLite, Port City Paints, or Snyder Paints location and let us help.
Also, we recorded a podcast last summer. It's basically a Deck Cleaning Q&A and it's full of great info. Check it out:
OnFloor Machine Demo
Here's a demo of the OnFloor Machine we discussed in the episode, though we want to note that the situation in this video shows the OnFloor Machine removing nearly 5 layers of freshly applied stain (yikes!). As a result, the speed is dramatically reduced. Still, you can see a great example of how clean the OnFloor Machine will get your deck. It's a very quick way to get your wood ready for stain without having to do any cleaning or introduce any water to the deck at all. This means you could clean it and stain it on the same day!
We have an OnFloor Machine for rent. You can contact us at 616-396-5213 to check availability and rental rates!
Which Tools are Best?
We didn't have time to get to all the different tools on the radio show today, but below we have a video that walks you through a number of different application options and how quickly (or not!) they work!
Mosquitoes are a giant pain in the neck! You just get your deck looking great and find that you can't even be out on it for more than 10 minutes at a time. And all of that time is spent running in circles, waving your arms, and trying to present them with a moving target.
Today, we sit down in the studio with David Popp from Rose Pest Solutions and we talk about prevention and reduction of this annoying spring, summer, and fall pest!
