The Deck Cleaner works fast and easily removes tough grime to leave your deck sparkling clean and smelling fresh. We offer this eco-friendly cleaner in a 1-gallon bottle or 32 oz. spray bottle.

Scrubbing Brushes/Pads

We recommend using a cleaning pad specially designed for composite and PVC materials to avoid unsightly scratches and nicks. Nothing is worse than putting in all that hard work, only to leave a lackluster finish! 

A Pressure Washer

For the fastest, most effective way to clean your composite deck in Kansas City, we recommend investing in a pressure washer. If you decide to scrub with this tool we recommend keeping your pressure low, and scrubbing away tough grime with a pad when necessary. 


When scrubbing away months of dust, dirt, and grime, it can be tempting to put a lot of pressure on your boards. However, our dexperts suggest that you let the cleaning solution do the work. This ensures that your boards stay looking beautiful for years to come without dulling or scratching.
