Deck care: how to clean and oil wooden deck and terrace

Outdoor wood needs oiling or repainting: Your wooden deck might start to crack and splint without regular care. Proper cleaning and treatment with decking oil makes your deck new-looking and inviting.

Painting with decking oil is easy and fun. The cleaning and painting work can be done in a weekend – just remember to protect the surroundings, and wash and dry the wood decking before applying the oil. 

Best decking oil and outdoor paint products

It matters which cleaning, oil and paint products you choose for outdoor use. For untreated or oiled wooden deck and garden furniture, the best repaint product is decking oil. For fences and other terrace and garden structures, you may also choose an exterior paint.

Both products are eco-friendly and can be tinted along with your ideas. Just remember, the wood needs to be cleaned before painting and the colour of the wood material affects the result.
