Is your composite deck covered in pollen, and you’re not sure what to do? Maybe you’re thinking of a decking remodel soon and wondering if composite decking really is as low-maintenance as your neighbors claim. Here are some helpful tips on how to get your deck looking brand new before your 4th of July celebrations!
- Clear & Sweep: Remove all furniture on your deck to make sure you get a full clean. It is much easier when there isn’t any obstacles in the way. A quick sweep with a standard broom will remove any loose dirt, pollen, and tree debris that will still to the deck when wet.
- Soap, Water, & Brush: No bleach and strong chemicals required! You don’t want to chance any discoloring or strength of the deck boards with unnecessary and harmful chemicals. All you need is warm, soapy water and a soft bristle brush.
- What about the tough stuff ? If you’re finding that any oil, grease, and food remnant sticking around after the brush and water attempt, you can use a pressure washer BUT use cation. You must use a pressure washer with a fan tip and no more than 3100 psi or you risk compromising your boards and warranty. Spray each board with a healthy distance (no closer than 8″). Never use acetone or other solvents on Trex Transcend and Select railings to maintain the beauty of the surface.
