How to Maintain a Deck for Maximum Durability

Removing build-up allows for better water drainage and makes space for debris to fall through the cracks. Sweep the entire deck of dirt, debris, leaves, and salt at least once per season. Move your furniture, grill, and other accessories out of the way. A thorough sweep ensures your deck remains clean and dry.

Snow Removal From Your Deck

When removing snow from your deck, make sure to use a plastic shovel, leaving one inch of snow. You can sweep off the remaining or let it melt. Shovel in the direction of the decking. This will keep your deck from getting scratched. Never use salt on any decking products as this can stain the decking.
