Team Purple got up to some office spring cleaning this morning and decided it was the perfect opportunity to pass along some cleaning tips of our own to keep your vinyl deck looking beautiful all year long! Our vinyl membranes are designed to be as low-maintenance as possible, but the occasional bit of TLC will keep them looking spectacular for years for come.
Soap & Water
A little bit of warm water and mild soap is the simplest way to keep your vinyl deck looking great. Mild detergents like household dish soap or OxiClean Light are our recommended cleaners. Before you start, sweep or brush off your deck to loosen dirt and grime and clear away excess debris. Wet your deck down with your cleaning solution and give it a light scrub with a bristle broom or brush. Rinse well with your garden hose to full remove all detergent and let it dry!
While Dec-Tec and Deckrite membranes do not require intensive cleaning and maintenance, a pressure washer can be used for the occasional deep clean of your vinyl deck. When using a pressure washer use a mild detergent and set the washer to its lowest setting, using caution around seams, caulking, trim and rail attachments. Never use solvents on your vinyl decking.
Additional Tips & Tricks
DeckRite is one of the vinyl membrane manufacturers that Calgary Best’s supplies. Originating in Western Canada and currently manufactured in North America, DeckRite understands the needs of the Calgarian consumer. Their membranes are engineered to be durable and long lasting in the extreme ups and downs of Calgary’s climate. They can withstand the ice and snow of Calgary’s long winter as well as standing up to the dry hot heat of our summers.
DeckRite membranes are a 3-ply laminated membrane with a layer of polyester fabric encased between two vinyl films, with the top layer of film printed with DeckRite’s beautiful, versatile patterns. The fabric layer increases the stability, puncture strength, and tear resistance of the membrane, improving its durability.
We carry DeckRite in two colour lines, Premier and Platinum, meaning we'll have a colour and pattern perfect to compliment your home. Both colour lines are available in a 60mm thickness and are produced in 6ft wide, 300 ft long rolls cut to dealer requirements. The membranes are embossed with an anti-slip texture for the safest enjoyment of your deck.
