How to care for your Composite Deck


Unlike traditional timber decking, which requires sanding, sealing and staining to maintain a perfect finish, Composite Decking is designed to maintain its shape and colour year after year. This Easy Care construction is just one of the many benefits of Composite Decking.


At TDS, our Eco-Friendly Composite Decking comes with a 10-year limited warranty. However, if you follow these simple steps, you can expect it to last up to 30 years.

  • Sweep - Give your deck a good sweep every 3 months. Use a soft-bristled brush and work in the direction of the boards, paying attention to keep the gap between boards clear.

  • Wash - Every 6 months, give your deck a wash down. Fill a bucket with warm water and add some washing up liquid. Using a soft-bristled brush, gently work the suds across the deck. To finish, simply rinse down with a hose. You can use a pressure washer, but we recommend a medium or low setting and keeping the lance 30cm away from the deck.

  • Wipe - Any spills from food, drink, oils, and creams should be wiped up as soon as possible. Use a damp cloth to remove as much of the spill as possible. Follow up with warm soapy water and rinse with clean water.

  • Stains - If you have any stubborn stains that you can't shift with warm soapy water, we recommend using a bleach-free composite decking cleaner. Ensure that you follow any product instructions and rinse down with clean water when finished.

  • Pets and Birds - You can easily remove pet poo or bird droppings from your Composite Deck. Remove as much of the mess as possible, then wash with warm soapy water and rinse with clean water.

  • Snow and Ice - Use a plastic shovel to remove snow from your Composite Deck. We recommend that, if needed, you use a salt-free, non-corrosive deicer.

  • Moss, Mold and Algae - Composite Decking is designed to minimise the growth of moss, mould and algae. However, some areas can be more prone to build up, such as damp or shady areas under trees. If this happens, it is easy to remove. Simply use a soft-bristled brush to help loosen and remove as much as possible before washing with warm soapy water and rinsing with clean water.
