Care & cleaning

Deck & Porch

To clean AZEK Deck/Porch, use all-purpose cleaner and dilute all cleaners by 50% (Do not use full strength) , such as Chomp Gutter cleaner, Zep 505, Simple Green or Krud Kutter Cleaner/Degreaser with a stiff natural fiber brush. Do not use abrasive cleaners which can dull the surface of new deck boards. Always read the cleaning product manufacturers specific information before using any product on your AZEK Deck and follow their instructions. It is also a good idea to test the cleaner on a scrap piece or inconspicuous area of the deck to make sure it does not harm the surface. Always clean smaller, manageable areas and rinse often, do not allow cleaner or soap residue to dry back to surface prior to thoroughly rinsing.

WARNING: Keep children and pets away from cleaning products and AZEK Deck until dry.

Always reference the Care and Cleaning Recommendations in our installation guide for the latest recommendations of cleaning products.

*Note that composite deck cleaners such as Corte Clean, Thompson’s Water Seal-Oxy Action, Olympic Deck Cleaner, or other cleaners specified as composite deck cleaners, in powder or liquid form, should not be used with AZEK Deck/Porch. AZEK Deck/Porch is a PVC/polymer deck plank and not a wood/plastic composite.

Trim Products

To clean AZEK Trim, power wash or hose off any loose dirt or debris. Make sure to test the setting for the power washer to ensure it will not damage the surface of the board.

If the board does not come clean, AZEK Trim products can be cleaned with Oxyclean and a medium nylon bristle brush. Rinse with a hose or power washer (be sure to test the pressure so it does not harm the surface of the board). Other cleaning methods include using a soft cloth and a mixture of mild detergent. A Mr. Clean Magic Eraser has been shown to work on pencil or other black marks. Other methods include denatured alcohol, mild household spray cleaner like Simple Green or Krud Kutter Cleaner/Degreaser. When using cleaners other than a mixture of mild detergent and water, it is best to test on a small area, or a scrap piece of AZEK Trim, to make sure it does not harm the surface or damage the product’s appearance. Always read the cleaning product manufacturer’s specific information before using any product on your AZEK Trim and follow their instructions.

WARNING: Keep children and pets away from cleaning products and the Trim until completely dry.

IMPORTANT: Do not use solvent based cleaners as they can harm the finish of AZEK Trim.

Consult with your paint manufacturer for instructions on cleaning AZEK Trim that has already been painted.
