Mold
Envirodeck Composite Deck Wash can be used to remove these stains. Please refer to the Deck Maintenance Guidelines for more information on mold removal.

Pressure Washer
You can use a pressure washer to clean your deck. Always use a fan tip blade with no more than 1300 PSI, and do not apply closer than 20-30cm from the deck surface. Doing otherwise may cause damage to the surface of the deck.

Scratches or Surface Abrasions
Markings of this type on your deck should fade within 12-16 weeks of installation. Using Envirodeck Composite Deck Wash or alternatively a deck wash containing hypochlorite (bleach) can speed this process of natural weathering up.

Chalk Lines
Scrub the affected area with Envirodeck Composite Deck Wash and hot water to help remove the stain. For stubborn stains, bleach can be added to the cleaning solution to achieve the desired result. We recommend using a blue or white chalk line when installing your deck to avoid this mishap. DO NOT USE RED CHALK.

Rust Stains/Stubborn Spots
Envirodeck Composite Deck Wash or alternatively a cleaner containing oxalic acid, commonly known as deck brighteners, can be used to remove these stains. In order to achieve desired results, the cleaner may need to sit on the stain for up to 15 minutes prior to rinsing.

Removing Ice or Snow
Allow to melt and wipe off. Alternatively, calcium chloride or rock salt can be used to remove ice from Envirodeck products.
