Comparative Summary

Envirotek Restoration, Inc. uses environmentally-friendly cleaning products and techniques to restore and preserve exterior wood for residential and commercial clients throughout the San Francisco Peninsula. The company focuses on servicing decks, fencing, siding, shakes and shingles.

Owner Sammy Alfadel says improperly washing a deck can permanently damage the wood, and painters and contractors often make this mistake. “Even professional deck cleaning companies often use subpar equipment and apply excessive pressure or water value, which can permanently gouge or scar the wood.” Envirotek Restoration uses the industry-recommend 1,500 pounds per inch (PSI) of water pressure when cleaning wood, which minimizes damage to its surface, says Mr. Alfadel.

Many companies clean wood with a Clorox-type bleach, but Envirotek Restoration uses a biodegradable, water-based cleaner to dissolve old stains, dirt, mold, mildew and dead cells. It also applies a brightener to remove dullness and return decks to their natural looks. The company sands wood and primes it to receive two coats of Total Wood Protection (TWP), a high-quality preservative that penetrates wood and protects it from the elements.

Mr. Alfadel says Envirotek Restoration’s employees are prompt, professional and clean. “They treat every customer’s home like their own and always deliver on their promises. They never walk away from a job until the customer is thoroughly satisfied.”

Industry Info

“If you’re cleaning a deck using a water pressure treatment, you should be concerned about the amount of pressure you use,” says Sammy Alfadel, owner of Envirotek Restoration, Inc. For redwood decks—a soft wood that’s easily damaged— he says the pressure shouldn’t exceed 1,500 pounds per square inch. “A lot of people try to do it themselves and end up making grooves into the wood grain.”

Mr. Alfadel says it’s also important to use a proper cleaner to dissolve dirt and old stains from the wood. In fact, he says, the cleaner alone will accomplish 80 percent of your deck cleaning.

Lightly sanding the wood will open the grain and permit better penetration of the stain. Mr. Alfadel recommends using a high-quality product that protects the wood from the inside rather than simply sitting atop it.

Depending on the type of wood in your deck and its exposure to the elements, its cleaning schedule can range from one to three years. In between, however, you should consider applying a hard “scrub” with a broom. Mr. Alfadel says that’s a good idea, but he warns that too much pressure can remove the wood’s protective outer layer of oil. The best way to maintain a deck between cleanings, he says, is to simply hose it down periodically and, if possible, use a blower to remove dust.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How long will it take to clean my deck?

A: Most jobs take between two and three days.

Q: How long will my deck stay clean?

A: From one to two years, depending on exposure—especially the sun and rain.

Q: After the cleaning, when can I walk on my deck or put furniture on it?

A: Typically, you should wait 48 hours.

Q: Are all your products safe for the environment, plants, animals and humans?

A: Yes. We use TWP, a high-quality, nontoxic cleaner. In fact, nearly all products in California are regulated that way. They’re safe.

Q: Can you clean my outdoor wood furniture, too?

A: Yes. We can clean and treat any exterior wood. We do a lot of furniture, shingles and shake siding of houses.

Q: What exactly is brightener?

A: Brightener neutralizes any chemicals on a deck and lightens up the wood.

Q: Do I have to worry about cleaner running off my deck and harming my plants or soil?

A: No. The cleaner we use won’t hurt your plants, but we’ll cover them anyway.
