Garden spring cleaning: Simple ways to ‘spruce up’ fences and decking ahead of summer


“To take the pain out of the process, using a product such as Abzorbit to save time and elbow grease.

“It sprays onto wooden decking, cladding, or flooring, and brushes off stains after a ten-minute wait. It’s much easier than spending half the day with a brush and soapy water.”

However, there are other ways of cleaning your deck, if you don’t have a specialist product to hand.

Leigh explained: “We recommend a gentle washing with slightly soapy water and sponge to remove dirt and cobwebs.

“A very light abrasive such as a nylon kitchen scourer can be used along the grain. Do not rub against the grain as it is likely to leave marks.

“A very light/distant cold water pressure washer (such as Karcher) can be used, but care must be taken not to damage the surface of the timber.

“The decking will lighten in colour when moss has effectively been removed.”
