Cleaning composite decking is a relatively simple process that can be done using basic tools and materials. Here are some steps to follow:
- Clear the surface: Remove any debris, leaves, or twigs from the surface of the decking using a broom or a leaf blower.
- Apply the cleaning solution: Apply the cleaning solution using a soft-bristled brush or a power washer on a low setting, working in small sections at a time. Avoid using a pressure washer on a high setting, as it may damage the surface of the decking.
- Scrub the surface: Use a soft-bristled brush to scrub the surface of the decking in a circular motion, focusing on any areas with stains or dirt buildup.
- Rinse the surface: Rinse the surface thoroughly with clean water using a hose or pressure washer on a low setting to remove all the soap residue and dirt.
- Let it dry: Allow the decking to dry completely before using it again.
