    Help with decking please

    Well, the decking was looking grey and crap so we decided to pressure wash it. Generally it is ok but in a few places the wood fibres have lifted slightly giviing it a "fuzzy" look.

    ANy ideas on how i can remove this (the decking isnt flat but ribbed boards) so i dont think i can use a sander?

    Any help much appreciated

    Regards

    I would probably do a bit if both as obviously you wont get in the gaps with a block

    anything with a rough edge as long as it smoothes it you'll be fine just don't use the pressure washer again lol

    as the fluufly bits are really where the decking is ribbed in the middle (the small ribs rather than the normal) i was gonna buy one of these?

    amazon.co.uk/Bla…8-1

    or

    amazon.co.uk/Bla…1-9

    so i can rub off the fluffly bits inbetween the small grooves?
