Hi Darlene, rent a pressure sprayer and take your time thoroughly cleaning the whole deck, it will look practically brand new when you're done!
Power washer, you can rent one for an afternoon. If there is green stuff on the boards, treat them with oxy clean, let it set for a few few min. Scrub. Then blast with water
Once you clean your deck well apply a linseed based product that soaks into the wood rather than laying on top of the wood like many deck products do. Check out this website for a product that I use and like: armstrongclarkstain.com
Wood decks need to be maintained on a regular basis. at least every four years.
Use pressure washer with Clorox let dry then Thompson's waterseal.
