Be Patient and Let it Cure

At this point the deck is done; if you’ve taken your time and followed these steps, you’ve got a great looking project. Don’t mess up now. Let things dry. Leave the furniture in the yard and the dog in the house so the sealer has a chance to cure out. Come back tomorrow and put things back together. You’ll be glad that you waited a day to do it.

Now Just Maintain It

We all know that nothing lasts forever and this will be true with your deck as well. But if you catch things early, maintaining your deck’s appearance is pretty easy. At the first sign of any mildew coming back, simply wash the surface of the deck with DEFY Composite Deck Cleaner and a scrub brush, hose it off, and let it dry. Then apply a single maintenance coat of clear sealer. It’s just that easy.

You may not have bargained for mildew when you chose to build your deck with composite lumber, but with a small amount of maintenance you can still end up with a terrific looking deck to entertain on and enjoy.
