Chesterfield Fall Cleaning & Maintenance - Decks, Fences, Patios and Siding


Fall will be here in just a few days, officially. Here in Chesterfield, Fall brings cooler, more comfortable temperatures that are perfect for enjoying your outdoor spaces. We have beautiful fall colors courtesy of a variety of native trees and plants. We want you to get the most out of the fall season so here are a few fall cleanup suggestions to spruce up and protect your home, deck or patio.

The fall is typically drier and that creates a great time to clean and seal your deck, fence or patio. Deck cleaning by Renew Crew Richmond-South of the James will remove the dirt, debris, mold and mildew that has accumulated over time. Our 3-step Process is not only effective but also environmentally friendly perfect for new decks and fences or 20 year old decks and fences. We never use chlorine bleach which is terrible for wood or any outdoor surface and you won’t have to worry about your landscaping or pets. After we apply our exclusive foam cleaner, we use low pressure to rinse off the dirt and debris that was brought to the surface. Low pressure is important when cleaning a soft surface like wood as there is no damage to the wood. You won’t see any “cuts” in the wood, all you will see is clean wood. Finally, to protect your wood deck, we offer three specially formulated stains or protectants (as we refer to them) to seal your deck. We offer Natural, a golden honey color, Cedar, a very realistic Cedar shade, and Brown that compliments just about any home’s main color. All protectants are Semi-Transparent that enhances the beauty of the wood grain. Our protectants offer UV protection and polymers that form a bond with the wood to prevent water penetration. Once we have applied the stain, you will find that when it rains your deck will have water beading on the surface. This shows your deck is protected. You can expect the stain to continue to repel water and offer UV protection for several years to come, the length of time it lasts is dependent on the color you choose and the amount of sun and exposure that your deck receives.



How about your concrete or paver patio? Do you have a fire pit that is covered in soot? We offer both patio cleaning and patio sealing services, too. We can remove the dirt, mold and even moss from your hardscapes again without using harmful cleaners. Sealing is an important step to prevent water penetration which in the freeze and thaw cycle, can lead to unsightly cracks. Any hard surface you can think of we have the expertise to clean and seal – driveways, walkways, fire pits, patios, pizza ovens, retaining walls.

If your home’s siding is looking green or black caused by Virginia Pines or other trees, you can also count on Renew Crew to get it clean. We are not like other house and siding cleaners; we use ladders and scrub brushes to get the dirt off. Again, we use a specially formulated foam cleaner that clings to vinyl siding or hardiplank siding to deep clean. If the foam needs a little help we will scrub the siding using soft bristle brushes that simply agitates the cleaner to remove the built-up dirt. We then rinse with low pressure and follow up with lemon-scented sealer that will help to repel dirt, mold and mildew longer.
