You may not think you need to, but you should get your deck ready for winter so it will be ready for you next spring. This article provides a good summary of the steps you should take to help your deck make it through the winter.
- Check for mold and mildew and give your deck a good cleaning. Make sure you get leaves and other debris off the deck.
- Clean and move your planters to prevent new mold and mildew growing under them.
- Restain or reseal your deck if you haven’t do so in a year or so to prevent rot and other damage.
