Guidelines for the Maintenance of WPC Decking in Winter

1. Brief introduction of WPC decking

Many people would ask, what is WPC decking? WPC decking is a combination of recycled wood and plastic. It has become more and more popular because it does not need to be polished and will not break, but has a variety of colors and patterns to choose from. WPC decking is suitable for use in various climatic environments and can be well maintained in weather conditions like winter.

2. The maintenance of WPC decking   

Using WPC decking materials instead of decking made of traditional wood allows us to enjoy more time and use less time to maintain them. But this does not mean that there is no need for maintenance. Here are some tips for using and maintaining WPC decking in winter.


(1) Floor sweeping


WPC decking can be protected from most moisture and sun damage. But wood fiber is still susceptible to mold, especially in humid weather. In its manufacture, WPC decking manufacturers would add mold inhibitors to prevent the growth of fungi. In addition, the best way to prevent mold is to clean regularly. You can remove leaves, dirt and other small debris on the floor before winter comes by using a broom and soapy water for washing. Pay special attention to clearing the space between the boards so that rainwater and melted snow can flow freely.


(2) Safety snow removing


Snow and ice may cause slips and you need to pay special attention not to scratch or damage the floor when removing snow by gently using a plastic shovel. In addition, you can also use salt to help melt them. After the snow is melted, use enough water and gently scrub with a plastic bristled floor brush to remove the snow and calcium chloride in it. When the weather gets warmer, use a garden hose or sprinkler to rinse WPC decking.

Some preventive maintenance in the fall and winter will help ensure that you can fully enjoy your floor during the warmer months. Spring will come again and you will enjoy your outdoor living area again.
