Care and Maintenance of AZEK® Porch & Deck



AZEK® Porch Flooring - the low maintenance porch floor AZEK® makes life easier!

AZEK® Porch and Deck Boards require only an occasional cleaning to retain their beautiful color and wood-grain texture. AZEK’s cellular PVC formulation resists natural and man-made stains like wet leaves, fruit punch, wine, and ketchup from your burgers. The strong dense surface resists grain loss and scratching even when confronted by dog claws, furniture and high heels!


AVOID THESE ITEMS
Non-porous Items

Rubber-backed door mats, tarps, pool toys, and other non-porous items left on the deck for an extended period of time can transfer excessive heat to your Porch or Deck Boards and may cause discoloration of the surface. Should that happen, AZEK® recommends using a heat gun on low setting as a possible remedy. Keep heat 3" or more from the surface and use a constant back and forth motion over the problem area.

Products Containing Chemicals
Some products, such as sunblock and insect repellent, contain chemicals that may alter the surface of AZEK® Porch and Deck Boards. Check product labels and consult with the manufacturer as to product compatibility with plastic materials, such as AZEK® Porch and Deck Boards, prior to use on or near AZEK®.

Abrasive Cleaners
Cleaners containing abrasives can permanently dull the surface.


CLEANING
Wash Periodically
To keep your AZEK® Porch or Deck beautiful, wash it periodically to remove grease, dirt and debris. AZEK® can be cleaned using liquid soaps such as dish or car wash, but avoid cleaners containing abrasives, as they can permanently dull the surface. Specially formulated all purpose deck cleaners are also readily available in stores. Rinse with a garden hose.

Remove Rust Stains
Use a household cleaner with phosphoric acid as the active ingredient (generally toilet bowl cleaners work well) and rinse with a garden hose.


ICE REMOVAL
Rock Salt or Calcium Chloride
These can be used without damage. Both may leave a white residue which can be cleaned using the cleaning guidelines above.
