Azek care and maintenance
What is the best way to clean AZEK Deck?
To clean AZEK Deck/Porch, use an all-surface deck cleaner or another all-purpose cleaner such as Chomp Gutter cleaner, Zep 505, Simple Green or Krud Kutter Cleaner/Degreaser with a stiff natural fiber brush. Do not use abrasive cleaners which can dull the surface of new deck boards. Always read the cleaning product manufacturers specific information before using any product on your AZEK Deck and follow their instructions. It is also a good idea to test the cleaner on a scrap piece or inconspicuous area of the deck to make sure it does not harm the surface.
WARNING: Keep children and pets away from cleaning products and AZEK Deck until dry.
*Note that composite deck cleaners such as Corte Clean, Thompson’s Water Seal-Oxy Action, Olympic Deck Cleaner, or other cleaners specified as composite deck cleaners, in powder or liquid form, should not be used with AZEK Deck/Porch. AZEK Deck/Porch is a PVC/polymer deck plank and not a wood/plastic composite.
Will AZEK Deck get mold on it?
Yes. Given particular environmental conditions of moisture and temperature, mold and mildew can appear on any outdoor surface. However, mold and mildew on AZEK Deck occurs only on the surface of the boards and does not penetrate into the deck board. Surface mold and mildew on an AZEK Deck can be removed using an all-surface deck cleaner or a 1 to 4 mixture of bleach and water. Apply cleaner or mixture, use a nylon bristle brush and scrub the area until the mold or mildew is removed. Rinse the area thoroughly and towel dry. Repeat if needed.
