ECO Flooring Wood Composite Decking is readily applicable for the following usage: outdoor balcony, pool decking, trails, stepping, fences (low rise), and even planter boxes. Unlike traditional untreated or treated wood decking and plastic decking, ECO Flooring WPC decking lasts about 20 more years longer (up to 50 years). The dimensional stability and longevity of this product make it a popular decking choice not only for balcony owners but also for contractors, interior designers, and architects.
Comparison to Wood
In terms of performance, ECO Flooring WPC decking does a lot of things that wood just cannot. One disadvantage of using wood is that when it absorbs water, it will begin to swell and then will shortly expand and contract especially along its width. This will be shortly followed by cracking, splitting and rotting. Eventually, all these flaws will ruin the structural integrity of the decking and thus will make the life span shorter. Whereas, ECO Flooring WPC decking only has a water absorption rate of 0.2% hence preventing all these problems.
Periodic cleaning of our WPC decking is suggested, even if it appears clean. It is important to prevent the build-up of pollen/debris that can cause mold. If unsure about the product being used to clean/remove stains from your deck, it is recommended that you test a small area in an inconspicuous place to determine if the product will cause any unwanted discoloration. Using a spray nozzle may use commercial pressure washers to remove stains, ground in dirt, or mold. Don not use steam nozzle. Use cold water and keep the spray nozzle at least one foot away from the deck. The use of a pressure washer with a greater than 1500 PSI and / or applied closer than 10 from the deck surface could damage the decking surface and result in a loss of warranty coverage.
Here are some of our recommended cleaning solutions:
Dirt or Debris
Clean the decking to remove dirt or debris by using soap, hot water and a stiff bristle.
Use conventional wood washes or cleaners that contain bleach and detergent
Scrubbing the area with hot soapy water with bleach may dislodge some of the chalk.
Rust Stains, Ground-In Dirt and Grime
Use a cleaning product containing oxalic or phosphoric acid base to lighten or remove the rust or dirt. Product may need to sit on stain10-15 minutes.
Oil and Grease Stains
Scrub in a household-degreasing agent as soon as the stain occurs. Rinse with hot water
Berries and Wine Stains
Mix bleach into hot water according to the bleach-packaging label. Scrub the stain lightly and rinse thoroughly. The stain may not disappear entirely.
Inks may be permanent. However, scrubbing with hot soapy water may lighten the stain. Rinse thoroughly.
