To clean everyday dirt for your patio or wood deck, you can clean it using a mild detergent in water, and then rinsing it properly afterwards. If a stain is caused by a tree sap, usage of mineral spirits can be helpful, and for mildews, you can wash it with a bleaching agent in a water solution, flushing the area with water and allowing it to dry. A good wood stain containing a sealant can preserve your wood deck surface for two to three years, however it is not recommended to be applied for pressure-treated lumber, instead allow it to age for about six months before doing so. Avoid using shellac or varnish for your wood deck, because they do not withstand moisture and sun exposure. For replacing damaged floor decks, bracing the boards and installing cleats along inside faces of joists in the sides of holes. You can paint all patchy materials with a wood preservative covering all surfaces before installation.
