How do I make this deck useable?


We moved into this house in March of last year and the owner had supposedly redone the deck the prior fall. He didn't seal it and after some research, I found out this is bamboo decking (which I don't think is something you should ever use in Nebraska!).

Fast forward to this year, and it is completely falling apart. It is full of fiberous slivers. We have a pool and little ones and have had numerous slivers in feet.

We want to find a cheaper solution that tearing it all out and redoing it. Any suggestions? Is there something we can put on top of it? You aren't even supposed to power wash this stuff, so I'm not sure how we will ever accomplish that.
