Every year after the rainy season (which according to some meteorologists may be elongated courtesy of El Nino) homeowners, tenants, and building managers discover that decks are often dirty or discolored. Surfaces that have not been maintained for an extended period of time may even suffer from damaged subfloors and plywood, which is frequently given away by cracked, bubbling, or soft coatings.
For Magnesite, Desert Crete and Stamped Concrete Overlays, collected dirt and dust is unsightly, and can mask damage due to environment and impacts. Western Magnesite recommends keeping your decks clean by regular sweeping. Diluted SimpleGreen will clear up most spills and stains. For more information on cleaning, Western Magnesite also recommends resealing your Magnesite decks every 20 months, and 30 months for Desert Crete or Desert Flex fiberglass-based decks. Resealing keeps your decks looking new, and ensures full warranty coverage.
