The outdoor plastic wood decking in some people's homes needs to be updated after two or three years of use, while the outdoor plastic wood decking in some people's homes is still as bright as new after seven or eight years of use. The reason is that there are different maintenance methods for the deck at home. Here are 6 maintenance methods. If maintained properly, the service life will be greatly extended.
Keeping plastic outdoor decking clean is an important aspect of deck care, as well as keeping it free of organic matter, which can lead to decay of the structure. We recommend that outdoor plastic wood decks be cleaned at least twice a month during warm, dry weather conditions. This will prevent dust and organic matter from building up, which can damage the panel. A cleaning frequency of more than twice a month is appropriate.
Prevent unextinguished cigarette butts and other flaming objects from falling onto the plastic wood deck. Precautions should be taken when using fire pits and barbecue grills on plastic wood decks.

Mold is a common environmental condition, and different climates will affect mold to varying degrees based on temperature and humidity conditions. To minimize surface mold on wood plastic decking. Clean as many times as needed. Removing leaves, debris, and other organic matter reduces the risk of mold. If mold is present, use hot soapy water or laminate deck cleaner to remove it.
Once the decking project is complete we do not recommend:
Dragging furniture or flower pots across the deck; dropping heavy objects onto the deck (e.g. large flower pots, trees, barbecue furniture, etc.); items with metal feet should have suitable materials between them and the deck to avoid damaging the deck.
Corrosive liquids, such as toilet cleaners and kitchen degreasers, cannot be used to clean the deck; high-temperature liquids or objects must not be placed directly on the deck to avoid damaging the surface. Do not use caustic or strong chemical treatments such as bleach. Use extreme caution if using appropriate products such as a soft bristle brush and soapy water.
