WPC decking is a combination of recycled wood and plastic. Because it does not need to be polished, it will not break, and it is available in various colors and patterns, so it has become more and more popular. WPC decking is suitable for use in various climatic environments and can be maintained well in weather conditions like winter.
Using WPC decking instead of traditional wood floors allows us to enjoy more and use less time to maintain them. But this does not mean that WPC decking does not require maintenance at all. Here are some tips for using and maintaining WPC decking in winter.
1. Sweep the floor
WPC decking can be protected from most moisture and sunlight, but wood fibers are still susceptible to mold and mildew, especially in humid weather conditions.
San Lodi will add mold inhibitors in the manufacture of WPC decking to prevent the growth of fungi. In addition, the best way to prevent mold and mildew is to clean regularly. You can sweep away the leaves, dirt, and other small debris on the floor before winter comes. You can use 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. Remove snow safely
Snow and icing may cause slips and falls, but you need to pay special attention when removing snow, not to scratch or damage the floor. The plastic spatula can be used lightly to avoid scratching or damaging the floor surface. In addition, salt can also be used to help melt the snow and ice. After the snow is melted, use enough water and a plastic brush to gently scrub the floor, which can easily remove snow and calcium chloride in the ice and snow. When the weather gets warmer, use a garden hose or sprinkler to rinse the WPC decking.
Some preventive maintenance in the fall and winter will help ensure that you can fully enjoy the wood plastic floor during the warmer months.
