It's amazing what a year's worth of grime can do to a beautiful deck or patio—namely, age it beyond all recognition. Using a pressure washer (you can buy or rent one at most home centers), spray down the surface of the wood or concrete evenly. Once the work is done, you'll be impressed by the results of your cleaning. Remember: When using a pressure washer on exterior siding, keep the wand a few feet away from the surface, as the powerful stream can cause damage to shake shingles or stucco at close range.
