Do you have Vinyl and Composite decking that needs maintenance or should have maintenance?
Most who have had composite decking or vinyl railing systems installed on your home and thought or was told it was maintenance free have been fooled. This “maintenance free”decking actually requires cleaning yearly and sometimes multiple times a year.
As you can see in the header picture this vinyl railing system is in need of a cleaning pretty badly. This deck was located on a shady side of a home and under a beautiful Oak shade tree which enabled the mold to grow. The homeowners have multiple entrances and this one was not used very often which allowed it to be out of sight out of mind.
How to maintain Vinyl and Composite decking:
Vinyl Railing Cleaning:
Composite deck cleaning:
Before you start it is best to rid the deck of any debris from trees. We find if leaves are left to decay on the decking for period of time it leaves stain marks on the decking.
The down and dirty of Vinyl and Composite decking is to rinse often with just water and allow it to receive regular sunlight to assist with keeping the Algae at bay.
