We get a lot of questions regarding how to clean the decking. I get asked this question a lot, but it is actually a question of how to clean the decking with care.
The first thing I can tell you is that you should never use a ladder to clean azek decking because it requires you to bend your body and it is very dangerous to do so. This is one of the reasons why I recommend that you only use a ladder for cleaning azek decking.
This is especially true in areas that have a lot of UV light. UV light can damage the decking’s paint and lead to the destruction of the decking if the UV light is not used in moderation. UV light is also a big source of bacteria because the high amount of UV light can cause bacteria in the wood to grow. In most areas where I have done cleaning azek decking, I have found that the wood is healthy.
I’ve noticed that many people seem to think that because the wood is healthy they should use a ladder to clean the wood. This is not the case. If you’ve ever cleaned azek decking and saw the wood starting to darken in places where the UV light is coming through, then you know that the UV light can darken the wood and make it look that much more degraded.
UV light can also cause bacteria in the wood to grow. In most areas where I have done cleaning azek decking, I have found that the wood is healthy.
If you are cleaning azek decking, it is a good idea to let the wood air dry before you start. This is because UV light can cause wood to rot, but if you wait too long, the wood can actually turn black and be very hard to clean. Just don’t wait too long, and you’ll be fine.
I have a really bad story to tell about this. One of our client’s was complaining to one of our employees that there was a stain on her deck that didn’t seem to be getting washed off. At first I thought she was just crazy, and the stain looked like a stain on a shoe box.
A better approach is to put a new decking kit on your Decking Floor. The decking kit should hold a few frames of wood, preferably in a similar order to your decking decking. The next step is to install the new decking kit on the Decking Floor with some paint or a paint treatment to make it look like it should look the same.
All of the other stuff that I am aware of on this site is just really cool. We’ll get to that in a moment. Be sure to keep a journal of your time from the day you started to design your decking kit.
It’s easy to be intimidated by using a new decking kit. I know it can be tempting to just buy a new decking kit and start over. Or to just start over and do it all over again. You have to remember though that a new decking kit is only as good as the wood in it.
