If you own a swimming pool, you know just how much of a time sink maintenance can be—but nonetheless how important it is as the end of the day. Some maintenance just takes a few minutes out of your week, but other tasks have the long-term in mind, which can often include your pool deck. If you have a pool deck, you know you want to extend the lifespan, safety, and curb appeal of your concrete pool deck as much as you can. That said, it does require some specific attention to deal with concrete. Here are our top ways to help maintain your concrete pool deck and make it last as long as you possibly can without sacrificing quality.
Keeping your cement clean can go a long way in making it last longer. Damp environments can also lead to mold and algae, which are unsightly and unsafe if you let it go out of control. Many people choose to pressure wash their pool deck, which can effectively remove dirt and other nastiness that may encourage algae growth. If you want to do the job yourself, purchase or rent a pressure washer and some concrete cleaner to get the task done. If you’re not the DIY type, look into a professional getting the job done.
There are ways to reduce cracks but you may also want to fix those little pesky imperfections. This often doesn’t even require a professional to do, either, and can help extend the overall life of your concrete. A pro can certainly help but applying the right kind of caulking prevents the crack from allowing any further moisture to cause damage and can blend in seamlessly so no one notices those tiny flaws you’d rather not show off.
Over time, stains will build up on an unprotected concrete pool deck. That’s why it’s important to apply a sealant. Using a concrete sealant can go right alongside pressure washing as a regular maintenance project and should be applied after your concrete pool deck dries off.
