    Cedar deck – power washer, with a cleaner/brightener, on a low setting to prevent damaging the soft wood in the grain.

    Pressure treated wood – higher pressure.

    Just power wash it. You just have to be careful. You can’t get the tip real close or you can splinter the wood.
    Don’t let people freak you out about not pressure washing it. Only the stupid people mess their decks up doing this.
    If you hire someone to clean your deck, they will pressure wash it.
    You really should seal it about a week after it is washed and there is no rain.

    I power wash mine every two years. You only damage it if you don’t know what you’re doing. It’s the best method…
