Deck maintenance - does it matter?

Outdoor decks are a great addition to any home, providing a space for entertaining, relaxing, and enjoying the great outdoors. But to keep your deck looking its best, regular maintenance is key. This includes regular cleaning, sealing, and staining. In this blog post, we'll explore the importance of maintenance when it comes to stained outdoor decks, with a focus on both Sansin products and how they can help achieve the expected outcome.

Why Maintenance Matters

Over time, exposure to the elements can cause outdoor decks to become discolored, faded, and even damaged. Sun, rain, and snow can all take a toll on the wood, causing it to warp, crack, and rot. Regular maintenance helps protect the wood from these elements, keeping it looking beautiful and extending its lifespan.


The first step in maintaining a stained outdoor deck is to keep it clean. Regular cleaning helps remove dirt, debris, and other contaminants that can cause discoloration and damage. This can be done with a simple solution of soap and water, or with a specialized deck cleaner.


After cleaning, it's important to seal the deck to protect it from moisture and UV rays. This is especially important for decks that are exposed to the elements year-round. Sansin's Enviro Stains and Clears offer a range of options for sealing outdoor decks, from clear coatings to pigmented stains. These products are designed to penetrate the wood and provide long-lasting protection, while still allowing the natural beauty of the wood to shine through.


In addition to sealing, staining is also an important part of maintaining a stained outdoor deck. Sansin's Classic and ENS products offer a range of pigmented stains that are perfect for adding color and depth to outdoor decks. These stains are formulated to enhance the natural beauty of the wood, while still providing the necessary protection from the elements.
