Oh definitely not before mowing haha.

I'm talking about the mowers with the wash ports on the deck. Usually it only gets out some of the grass, leaving the underside of the deck only partially clean and the remaining grass dry. Rots them out in around 5 years.

Is it wet when you mow? Certain kinds of grass are worse at caking underneath than others.
