Deck Cleaning Products

Fall is the best time of year to clean and restore your deck surfaces and railings. We are frequently asked for recommendations on composite deck cleaning products. There are several good products on the market.  Some are specifically designed for composite decks while others can be used on a variety of surfaces.  Some can be found at your local home improvement center but a few are only available on-line. I thought I’d give you a list of some of the products we or our customers have used with good results.

  •  DeckMAX PVC Deck Revitalizer -This product rejuvenates your deck color, removes scratches or marks and is plant based, making it user friendly to work with and easier on the environment.
  • CHOMP Pro Algea & Mold Stain Cleaner/Remover – Good for multiple surfaces such as composite decks, concrete pavers, siding and even outdoor furniture cushions.  The product contains NO bleach and is a great value for the price.
  • Mr. Clean Magic Eraser – Yes, this thing has a million and one uses but it works especially well at cleaning marks and stains off of metal deck railings.  It won’t damage the paint finish either.

If you have a wood deck, you should take a look at DeckScapes® by Sherwin Williams.  We have had several customers recommend this product as a top notch wood deck care system.

If you have used any products that you think work well, please pass them along in the comments below. We are always interested in your feedback.

Talk to the Pro Deck Builders

The experience with your entire company, from start to finish, was excellent. First we needed our railing replaced on a very tight time schedule - John came out and worked through two weekends, replaced both the railing and reconstructed our stairs, with finishing up in time for us to host a family gathering (Wow - Nice Job!). We then followed up with a contract to replace our existing decking. The crew came out and completed the work on schedule - an excellent job! They even had to add additional support beams and worked to ensure that all edges were as level and as even as could be. Mike and company are very responsive, personable, and highly professional. We will use them again, when we are able to add another set of stairs. GREAT JOB! Thanks!
