Deck cleaning ideas?

I have a deck that I painted Red with deck paint. Looks good but, it gets dirty sooo easy from the pollen and dog that are on it. I have sprayed it with a hose but not much difference and any easy ideas to keep it clean?

Try washing with a mixture of 2 parts water, 1 part bleach, and a squirt of dish soap. You can spray it on with a pump up garden sprayer, or apply with a deck brush. Let it dwell 5-10 minutes, being careful not to let it dry. Rinse with a garden hose. This method will clean the deck if its done on a regular basis. If you let it go a year or two between cleanings, save the hassle and contact a professional exterior cleaner in your area.

If you want to clean your deck then you have to clean it with vacuum cleaner and wash it every week with soap. You can also use some chemical which are available in the market for cleaning a deck.

To clean the deck you can perform the following steps: Mix a solution of warm water and an oxygenated bleach cleaner, pour a little of this mixture onto a small portion of your deck and then scrub the area with a scrubbing brush. You will find that the gray color of the deck would gradually disappear after this.

Vacuum cleaner is good to clean it because dog will make it dirty every day.
