Playsets

As the surface of wood playsets is exposed to sunlight, dirt, mildew, rain or snow it eventually deteriorates or fades in appearance. Even the toughest finish will succumb to weathering within a few years and will need to be refinished. A proper cleaning is an essential first-step in the refinishing of playsets.

Wash Process

Washing playsets includes the following steps:

SETUP: We begin by protecting the working area including any structures and/or surrounding landscaping.

WASH: A qualified Deck Tech Technician professionally power-washes the wood surface. Depending on the wood type the technician determines and regulates the required water pressure.

CLEAN: If needed, a commercial grade biodegradable cleaner is applied and rinsed from the wood surface in preparation for the sealing process.

COMPLETION: Upon completion, the surrounding work area is rinsed off.

Stain Removal

Removing semi-transparent stains and/or paints from playsets includes the following steps:

The initial step in the stain-removal process is the complete removal of any previous product. DT-1000, our sealant, penetrates deeply into the wood fibers and provides complete protection of the newly cleaned wood surface.

To conduct the sealing process of playsets (our final process) a crew of 3-4 qualified Deck Tech Technicians will return to the job site and perform the following steps:

To conduct the sealing process (our final process) a crew of 3-4 qualified Deck Tech Technicians will return to the job site and perform the following steps:

SETUP: We begin by protecting the working area including any structures and/or surrounding landscaping.

STRUCTURE PREP: A technician checks for any protruding nails.

SAND: The deck is given a light sanding on the affected areas (e.i. floors, pickets, top rails, seated areas of the deck, etc.).

SEAL: Once the previous steps have been completed your deck is sealed with DT-1000 wood preservative. Our Technician carefully applies our preservative and confirms that all wood surfaces have proper saturation by brushing and rolling the sealant onto the wood surface. This ensures those areas are protected. Any excess stain is removed by the use of a natural lamb-wool applicator, whereby promoting proper distribution and drying.

CLEANUP: In this final step, we clean up the job site and leave you with a beautifully restored wood finish.
