I want to clean my open deck after the winter dirt. Furniture is all covered and rough deck floors to be washed but no water tap for hose!

    Deck Clean products are out there and they work.

    I used one from Behr, Home Depot, a long handled scrub brush (like a mop with a scrub brush on the end), a 2 gallon bucket and hot water.

    The one I picked had mold-killing ingredients in it and it worked so well, I used it on the siding.

    Hand rinse with a separate 2 gallon or 5 gallon bucket, after scrubbing with the solution.

    I would suggest a scrub brush (some have longer handles to save your back) and a bucket. Start with Dawn dish detergent and rinse with clear water.

    get yourself some buckets that you can carry or recycled jugs to hold water, fill in bathtub or kitchen sink(depending on their size) add some Dawn dish soap (cuts grime and oily residue,sap,bug droppings) mix up then dump on porch use scrub brush/broom scrub it all then rinse with same buckets/jugs with hot water. Don't use too much soap so it will be easier to rinse.

    Hello, I would suggest using buckets to mop and rinse the decking.

    I have sections of the deck that are covered, so no exposure to elements except the occasional pest. How does one manage to keep their decks clean and not worry about hantavirus.?
