Do's & Don'ts for a freshly coated deck

Help, my deck is still tacky!

If you find your deck is still tacky after 24 hours, allow further drying time as this will usually remedy the problem.

If after 7 days it is still tacky, run a cold hose over the deck, let it dry and repeat this process until it tacks off. This process will help speed up the “taking off” process

Remember at different times of the year decks and verandahs can take longer to tack off completely.

New Deck Care

Depending upon the timber type, many species need to be “bled” of Tannins before they can be sanded and finished eg Merbau/Kwila.

The bleeding process can be sped up with the use of “Sikkens Cetol BL Tannin & Oil Remover”, followed by “Cetol BL Deck & Wood Cleaner” This process can take up to six months if allowed to bleed the traditional way. Using these products speeds it up so it can be done within weeks.

New decks do not have to be sanded , but they do need to have the application of the Deck & Wood Cleaner done prior to coating.

3 Coats of finish is usually applied depending upon the chosen product.

The Tannin and Oil remover and Wood Cleaner processes can be performed by the home owner to save money prior to us carrying out the sanding and/or coating stages.

How to clean your deck

A simple hosing down is sometimes all that is needed and a light sweep with a soft bristle brush.

Mop dirty decks using a mild detergent.

Oaxlic Acid wash will help remove mould spots.

If a BBQ has left fat deposits, try using white vinegar on some paper towel and wipe up fats/spills.

Safety requirements

New regulations for external steps and ramps need to have a non-slip coating applied. We also highly recommend this for around swimming pools.

We recommend Sikkens Deck Slip Resistant Finish.
