There are thousands of homes in Toronto and Mississauga that have decks in their backyards many of these decks have been there for years unattended and not cared for. Like anything else would decks need maintenance performed on them regularly to keep their integrity and looks. If wooden decks are neglected for a long time and it’s possible they might develop structural weaknesses and also become dangerous to walk on.
A good maintenance program for deck is to power wash the deck annually and keep anything that retains moisture off the deck because eventually it will start ruining the deck.
You should inspect all your screws and nails on the deck to make sure that they are secure and safe and if any screws are backing out this should be re-tightened.
