Deck Maintenence (TREX DECKING)

General Dirt and Debris: The affected area should be sprayed off with a hose to remove surface debris. Use warm soapy water and a soft bristle brush to remove dirt and debris from the embossing pattern

Chalk Lines: High permanence chalk lines may discolor the surface. Use only Irwin Strait-line dust off marking chalk (purple) available at

Tannins Due to Debris:   Remove all debris from deck using a hose or broom. Once the deck surface is dry apply a “deck brightener” to the deck as directed by the manufacturer. Deck brighteners contain Oxalic acid which will remove tannins.

Ice & Snow: A plastic shovel may be used to remove snow from the deck. Use Calcium chloride or rock salt to melt the snow and ice from the deck surface.

Oil/Grease/Food: All food spills should be removed as soon as possible. The surface must be cleaned
within seven days to maintain the stain warranty. To remove, spray off with a hose and use warm, soapy water and a soft bristle brush to remove spills from embossing pattern.

Mold and Mildew: If debris such as pollen and dirt is allowed to remain on the deck surface, mold can feed on the biofilm. Using a hose and warm soapy water with a soft bristle brush is recommended to remove the food source and mold.

Pressure Washer: A 1500psi power washer may be used on Transcend™ shell surface to remove dirt and debris. Use a fan tip at least 4” away from the shell when using a power washer.

Transcend Railing:  Never use Acetone or other solvents on Trex Transcend™ railing to maintain the beauty of the surface.
