After cleaning your deck, you can use a water-based sealer to seal your composite deck. It is recommended to use products with synthetic resins to prevent mold growth. You can also use a carbonate cleaner. For a clean look, brush off the sealant when wet.
Spray the tire with soap, then gently scrub each tire shell with a soft brush. Spray / rinse each individual terrace with a fan nozzle at least 2.40 m from the surface of the terrace. CLEAN thoroughly. If the dirty water dries up after cleaning, a film will form on the surface of the tape.
It is not necessary to seal the surface after cleaning, but I recommend it. Sealing or staining a composite stain will allow you to use it for several years before you need to clean it again.
PRESSURE CLEANING OF COMPOSITE COVERING High pressure cleaning is generally not recommended for composite floors. Washing too tightly or applying too much pressure can damage your patio. Composite bridges are softer than natural wood and therefore easier to burn.
But if you can spot it early, getting the tire look is easy enough. At the first sign of mold growth, simply wash the tire surface with DEFY Composite Deck Cleaner and a scrub brush, dip it in and let it dry. Then apply a single maintenance coat with a clear sealer.

Your composite deck may not lift, but it may sag and warp. Most of the deflections are due to improper spoke spacing during installation. Composite floors are lightfast but can discolor over time if exposed to strong sunlight. Composite floors become lighter in shade as they fade.
Most composite decking, such as Trex composite decking, require a minimum spacing between the joists of 16 degrees in the center for straight boards and 12 degrees in the center of the joists for a 45 degree diagonal plank.
Composite floors are maintenance free
The short answer: yes. Although composite tapes like Trex don’t need to be painted or stained like their natural wood counterparts, they can and will take on color under certain conditions: when cleaned, primed and primed. Roller / brush / cushion / spray. Primer.
Oldtimer suggested a similar formula of 3 parts of linseed oil, 2 parts of Thompson’s Water Seal cut with 1 part of thinner. The paint thinner acts as a penetrant and makes the mixture so fine that the active ingredients can penetrate the wood.
An outdoor terrace is more exposed than wood indoors, so regular sealing is required for protection. While you can apply the sealer by hand with a brush, a sprayer is a much more effective solution.
