The Best Way To Give Your UPVC Decking A Spring Clean

How to spring clean your decking

Spring is nearly here! We can almost smell the daffodils and everyone we know is hoping and praying warmer weather is just around the corner.

But before you start picturing yourself enjoying a glass of Pimm’s or a cold beer on your deck, you need to make sure your decking is ready to be utilised on the first day of spring with some timely spring cleaning. 

Thankfully, UPVC decking requires a lot less maintenance than traditional decking does, so you could be enjoying your outdoor area sooner than you think (as long as the sun plays along)!

Follow our steps to make sure your UPVC decking is ready for relaxing in the sun:

Step 1: Wash away dirt & leaves

If you haven’t looked at your deck since autumn, you may find it needs a tiny bit of TLC.

Clear the deck of any furniture or potted plants, sweep up the leaves and wash it down with a hose. Pay special attention to any nooks and crannies, as dust and dirt can gather in there.

Step 2: Use a simple cleaning solution

You’ll find many affordable UPVC cleaning products on the supermarket shelves that can easily banish any mould and mildew.

Thanks to the easy-clean UPVC material, you can also make your own simple cleaning solution of warm soapy water. Use a non-abrasive cloth or mop and your deck will sparkle in no time.

Unlike timber decking, UPVC decking won’t rot, so there is very little you need to do to keep it looking brand-new.
