How to maintain and clean your composite decks
If you want your decks to look new for longer, then you need to know the proper maintenance method. Here are some tips that will help you maintain your composite decks in top condition:
1) Cleaning with household cleaning products
You can use a pressure washer or buy household cleaning products like bleach and water, which has an agent that kills moulds and mildews. Once done, clean off any excess chemicals with clean water until everything is rinsed off. Then let the deck dry by itself. Do not walk on it while it’s wet. You should also apply sealant once every three months to retain the shine on your deck.
2) Using vinegar-water solutions
Mix equal parts white distilled vinegar and warm water in a spray bottle. Spray the solution onto your composite deck and scrub the solution on with a stiff brush. After rinsing off, allow your deck to dry completely.
3) Using a commercial cleaner
Purchase a commercial cleaner from hardware stores. Apply the cleaner using a mop and clean off any excess residue after allowing it to sit for 5 minutes or so.
Why a professional character should install your composite decks
Hiring a professional to install your deck is important because they have the skill and know-how to properly construct the deck. They also know what safety measures need to be put in place to ensure your protection. As mentioned, composite decks are designed for outdoor use, but professional carpenters will take care of any potential obstacles like installing handrails or balusters along with gaps between boards so that they can keep you safe at all times.
Types of composite decks
There are different types of composite decks, all with different costs and benefits.
Vinyl decking is around $8-$12 per square metre for basic installation, while the more expensive types of decks are only available today in certain parts of the country.
The most popular products offer a rustic look that comes with less upkeep than traditional wooden decks, with three categories of materials used – high-density polyethylene (HDPE), medium-density overlay (MDF) and plastic lumber. Some brands attempt to mimic the real wood look even better with advanced print technology using wood grain designs printed onto sheets using HDPE or MDF materials.
Which are the benefits of using composite decking?
Composite decks are environmentally friendly because they are made of recyclable materials. The average life cycle of a composite deck is around 15 years. Composite decking involves less maintenance than other types of decks, and while it’s more expensive to install, you can save money in the long run on upkeep costs.
The popularity of composite decking Sunshine Coast has grown due to their low maintenance requirements once installed. Unlike traditional wooden decks that need yearly sanding and staining, you just have to sweep them clean every now and then with a soft bristle brush or hose them down if there is debris on top of the surface to avoid any damage easily.
