The Key to a Clean and Safe Summer Poolside
It’s that time of year again — the time for pool parties, barbecues, summer holiday picnics, outdoor birthday bashes and just beating the heat poolside with friends and family after a long day at work. That said, how many of us actually notice our pool deck surfaces?
With the hustle and bustle of activity comes heavy foot traffic, dirt and debris being scattered and spread, and sticky spills from those umbrella drinks taking a tumble. And, while the inside of the pool is supposed to be wet, of course, dampness in other areas can be damaging and dangerous.
During a wet year, or in areas such as the CSRA where humidity is a constant, mildew, algae and other organic materials can grow on most outdoor surfaces. Not only is organic growth displeasing to the eye, but it is also unsafe.
Algae and mildew are indeed very slippery when wet, and in an area where there might already be a water hazard, an extra one is not needed. Additionally, if left over a long period of time, an accumulation of algae and other organic growth can cause concrete and other pool deck surfaces to crack, leaving you with more hazards and a large repair bill.
Relaxing by the pool should be just that — relaxing. When the area around the pool is just as sparkling as the water inside, that’s just what it will be — relaxing and enjoyable.
