Quick Composite Deck Cleaning Tips

Many Columbia homeowners lead busy lives and just don’t have the time or energy left at the end of the day to spend hours cleaning and maintaining their decks. With composite decking, it really only takes a few minutes of upkeep every so often to keep it looking its best.

  • For minimal dirt and debris, a leaf blower (or broom) can be a big help in removing dirt, dust, and leaves from your deck. If needed, scrubbing tough spots with regular mild soap and warm water can do the trick.
  • If you have a pressure washer, your composite deck cleaning should be a breeze! Use a fan tip blade with no more than 1300 PSI about 10 inches away from the deck’s surface. Be careful not to let the tip get any closer, as doing so can damage your deck’s surface.
  • With winter right around the corner, you may be wondering the best way to remove ice and snow from your composite deck. A plastic snow shovel should not scratch the surface, and calcium chloride or rock saltare safe options to melt away ice or snow.
