Pool Decking Softwash Cleaning: Keep Your Pool Area Clean and Safe with Skyline Services

Your pool area is a place of relaxation and recreation, but it can quickly become uninviting if your pool decking is dirty and unsightly. Over time, pool decking can accumulate dirt, grime, algae, and other substances that not only detract from the aesthetics of your pool area but can also create safety hazards. Fortunately, there is a way to restore your pool decking’s beauty and safety without causing any damage to the surface or the surrounding landscape. This method is called pool decking softwash cleaning, and Skyline Services provides this service to homes in the Madison, WI area.

What is Pool Decking Softwash Cleaning?

Pool decking softwash cleaning is a safe and effective method of cleaning that uses low-pressure water streams and specialized cleaning solutions to remove dirt, grime, algae, and other substances from your pool decking. This method is gentler than traditional pressure washing, which can damage your pool decking surface and cause costly repairs. Pool decking softwash cleaning is a four-step process that includes:

1. Inspection: A professional cleaner will inspect your pool decking to determine the extent of the cleaning required and the type of surface.

2. Pre-Treatment: The cleaner will apply a specialized cleaning solution to the surface, allowing it to penetrate the dirt, grime, and stains.

3. Soft Washing: Using low-pressure water streams, the cleaner will gently rinse the solution and the dirt away, leaving behind a clean and bright surface.

4. Post-Treatment: After the pool decking is clean, the cleaner may apply a sealant or protective coating to help prevent future buildup of dirt, grime, and algae.

During the cleaning process, we ask that any pets remain in the home or outside the cleaning area. After the job is completed, the yard is completely safe for your pets to access. We rinse and neutralize areas after the cleaning. If anything is remaining on the grass, it would be similar to what your pet may experience in pool water, since sanitizing agents in pools are the same as what we use.


Bleach is the most widely used and effective cleaning solution in the world. It’s used in far more processes than most people realize in the products and services we rely on every day.

Bleach even occurs naturally in nature in a place some of you may have visited, Lake Lucero in Great White Sands National Park.
