How to Maintain Your Decking

Having a deck on a static home completely transforms your outdoor space. It gives you more space and adds value to the caravan. It is important to maintain your deck to keep it in the best condition. Here are our top tips on how to maintain your decking.

How to Clean Your Composite Decking

Deck maintenance and cleaning are advised if you want to keep your decking looking good. PVC decking is low maintenance, especially our decking. Our decking comes with a 12-year warranty, but regular cleaning and maintenance will help expand the lifetime of your deck, and combat the effects of regular use and weather.

The first step we recommend is to simply wash your deck down with a hose. This should remove any large areas of dirt and general waste that gathers on a deck over time. This should take no longer than 10 minutes. The next step is to use a deck cleaner concentrate. Using the cleaning concentrate, scrub the surface of your deck, ensuring that you scrub away any areas of mould and mildew. Once you have scrubbed the deck, wash away any cleaning composite that might remain on the surface of your deck.

Now that your deck is sparkling clean, we recommend using a PVC deck revitaliser. Revitalises help to restore the effect of fading, stains, weathering, scratches and scuffs. You only need to use revitalise about once a year. Just coat it on your deck and sit back and relax knowing that your deck is covered.

What is the best decking treatment to use?

The best decking treatment depends on the material of your deck and your maintenance goals. For traditional wood decks, treatments involving sealants and stains are necessary to protect against weathering and wear. However, for those looking for a low-maintenance option, uPVC decking is an excellent alternative.

Are there anti-slip treatments available for decking?

Yes, there are several anti-slip treatments available for decking. These treatments typically involve applying a clear, textured coating that increases traction.

How often should you oil decking in the UK?

In the UK, oiling wood decking is generally recommended at least once a year to protect it from the wet and often unpredictable weather. Alternatively, UPVC decking can be a more convenient choice as it does not require oiling or other frequent maintenance, making it ideal for those seeking a durable and hassle-free decking solution.
