Paint and Stain Removal
You have a beautiful deck, but there is just that one spot that has a big mustard stain on it that literally drives you crazy. You find yourself hating your nephew for failing to hit his hot dog and leaving all of that mustard on your floors! Let’s get one thing straight. Wood is great, it gives you an awesome finish it is truly one of the most stylish materials out there. That being said, it is known for being quite a sucker for stains! Untreated wood will stain easily and removing a stain is usually very, very hard!
Soap & Water Aren’t Doing The Trick?
This is just a word of friendly advice. If you have a stain on an untreated wooden area, and that first try to remove it with soap and water failed, we do not recommend that you try again! Again if the wood is untreated then it is going to absorb a lot of the water and it will probably just make matters even worse. Leaving not only the stain on the deck but a particular area that has been exposed to, too much moisture which is not very friendly to wood from what we know!
Prevention is Always The Best Way
We really could not think of a good enough reason as to why you would have a deck in Minneapolis that you had not stained or sealed properly. The reason that we say that is because if you haven’t, really the last thing you are going to have to worry about is the mustard stain. When the snow starts piling up that wood is going to have major problems coming its way. The best way to combat stains and moisture is to seal or stain your wooden deck to make sure the wood will repel and not absorb the chemicals!
Paint stains are a mess all the way around. Regardless pretty much of what they happen to get on. When it comes to decks they really bring forth a huge dilemma. Are we going to try and sand it out and then repaint? If you only try and like scrape it out you are bound to remove it, but there is always going to be a mark right there that is going to remind you of the stain. We can attack these issues from many different angles and we will let you know which one we believe fits you best when you call or contact us!
Repaint Over The Paint?
If you have not read through other areas of the site you don’t know how we feel about this, so we are going to say it again! We are not too fond of having multiple layers upon layers of paint in one place. It really takes away all of the natural look and feel of wood. You might as well go with a vinyl deck or something completely different. What we usually do is try and remove it by sanding or smoothening the wood and then repainting or staining. Never excessively covering it with different layers though!
