Is your expensive wooden swing set starting
to age and deteriorate? Let the Swing Set Medic bring it back to life.
A cleaned and freshly stained set is like having a new toy all over again.
The restoration process begins with a full safety inspection checking all pieces
for any damage from insects, landscapers, weather or just typical wear. After
making a list of any necessary replacements needed, we then check the hardware
to be sure that everything is tight to reduce movement in the set. We also check
the placement of the set for leveling issues as well as clearance of obstacles
in the yard such as fences, trees, pools etc. Once the safety check is complete
we then begin the cleaning process by sanding down the entire set removing dirt,
mold and mildew build up, splinter hazards as well as removing old stain that
has faded and blotchy. Heavy mold and mildew issues may require some pressure
washing with different products. After the wood has been cleaned and sanded we
then remove the toys and accessories attached to the set to prepare for staining
and sealing. The stain/seal is usually applied by sprayer to ensure even coverage
and getting all cracks and crevices. The color or tone of the stain can be discussed
at the time of scheduling if there is something specific that the customer wants.
Once the entire set has been stained/sealed we begin cleaning the accessories
such as the toys, tarps, swings, and any rubber coatings or brackets the set may
have. After everything has been cleaned and put back on the set, we inspect the
set with the customer to be sure of complete satisfaction.
