Maintaining your Composite Decking

Periodic cleaning of your composite decking will maintain its beauty. For general cleansing, use clear water or additionally a water and soap solution will suffice.

The quickest way to clean the composite decking boards is to use a conventional soap washer and to rinse the composite deck surface afterwards with a pressure washer. Always follow the grain during cleaning and do not use a dirt blaster but a standard beam. Ensure you maintain sufficient distance from the composite deck in order not to damage the surface.

If you do encounter any stains it is best to tackle them quickly, see our Tips and Tricks below to keep your deck in ship shape
