    "Thank you for a tremendous job. Through all three parts of the work I've had done this year, Reilly has come across as total classy organization. I appreciated the professionalism and courtesy of your entire crew, and of course your good humor added to the enjoyment of what could have been a real inconvenience. My neighbors are the kind of people who ask, and I'll tell them all--with a plethora of rapturous and ecstatic enthusiasm--that I couldn't have been more pleased."

  • How To Clean A Wooden Deck

    [caption id="attachment_7034" align="alignleft" width="300" caption="Cleaning a Wood Deck"][/caption]

    Do you have a wooden deck in your backyard and want to restore it to it's natural beauty? Here are some tips for restoring that deck:

    1. Remove all deck furniture, planters, grills and other items from the deck.
    2. Sweep the deck to remove sand, leaves and other debris.
    3. Don protective eyewear to protect your eyes from debris that may become airborne during the power washing process.
    4. Attach a garden hose to a power washer, turn on the water supply and then turn on the power washer.
    5. Power wash the deck, using extreme caution to avoid damaging the wood surface. The end of the power-washer wand should be at least 18 inches away from the deck surface. You may skip this step if your deck is fairly clean (that is, free of mold and major stains.)
