To preserve the look and performance of wood deck finishes for longer, it is recommended that decked areas are swept with a stiff broom on a regular basis. This is to remove loose leaves, dirt and other organic matter that can settle on the wood deck and in the grooves, which can degrade or damage the finish and decking timbers over time.
If signs of mould or algae appear, use an appropriate cleaner, such as Ronseal Garden Cleaner. Do not use any regular cleaning household detergent as this can be damaging to the finish.
Scuff marks, stains, grease and other surface contaminates can normally be cleaned with Ronseal High Performance Decking Cleaner. Stubborn marks and stains may require a light sanding and a thin application of Ronseal Decking Protector to restore.
The condition of wooden decking should be inspected on a regular basis and re-treated as required.
High foot traffic areas that start to appear worn or tired, or that are losing the ability to repel water effectively can be easily restored. First clean with a suitable decking cleaner then re-apply a thin coat of Ronseal Decking Protector to the affected area for an invisible repair.
