Keeping your composite deck looking pristine doesn’t have to be a headache. As a proud composite deck owner, I’ve discovered some simple yet effective techniques for cleaning that will have your deck looking brand new in no time.
First, start by removing debris, such as fallen leaves and branches, using a broom or leaf blower. By getting rid of the larger fragments, you’ll make the cleaning process much easier.
Next, create a homemade cleaning solution by mixing warm water and a mild detergent in a bucket. You can also use a composite deck cleaner specifically designed for this purpose if you prefer.
Dip a soft-bristle brush or mop into the cleaning solution and scrub the deck boards, focusing on any stains or spots. Be sure to work in small sections to ensure thorough cleaning.
Once you’ve scrubbed the entire deck, rinse off the cleaning solution with a garden hose or a pressure washer set to a low setting. Remember to keep the nozzle at a distance to avoid damaging the deck surface.
Finally, allow your freshly cleaned deck to air dry completely before enjoying the beautiful results. Regularly following these steps will ensure your composite deck remains in excellent condition for years to come. Happy cleaning!
