Before and After Gallery
When selecting a correct cleaning chemistry, it comes down to the soil and the surface. Cleaning rust requires a different chemistry than one for cleaning grease. Cleaning stone requires a different chemistry than one for cleaning glass.
Composite decks are made up of different materials, basically wood and plastic. Each of these materials is susceptible to different soils and can require different chemistries. Ie bleach based cleaners are often used to ‘oxidize’ / eliminate mold stains on wood. While bleaching mold stains from wood may be acceptable, the same bleach can remove the color from plastic – often not a desired goal of new composite deck owners.
General dirt, grease, grime, organic matter (algae, mildew, mold), and leopard spots. Leopard spots is a term used to describe the blotchy pattern of grey/black patches that are found on horizontal surfaces of composite decks. These blotchy patches are found on the top (not bottom) of horizontal boards and on areas exposed to sunlight – probably the result of UV reaction with a component in the composite deck.
Chomp composite deck cleaner is a concentrate and provides great value for the care of your investment. The base formula is a powerful package designed to clean a wide variety of soils from wood and plastic (composites) without the use of bleach. The base formula will easily remove, dirt, grease, soils, grime, algae, etc. If your deck contains leopard spots, bleach will be required to ‘lighten’ the spots. Chomp Composite deck cleaner is bleach compatible giving you the ‘oxy-option’. By adding two cups of bleach to a diluted gallon, the leopard spots will be lightened. The addition of bleach will probably lighten the appearance of the entire deck, so it is recommended to test in an inconspicuous area for desired results.
Using a bucket and deck brush, apply product to a 5 x 5 area. Let sit for three minutes without drying. Agitate the area with a deck brush and rinse. Repeat in next 5 x 5 area until deck is washed. Pressure washers can be used to speed cleaning. Maintain a safe distance from the surface to minimize risk of damage to the composite surface.
Yes, in addition to composite surfaces, it can be used on wood, fiberglass, stone, brick, concrete, canvas, awnings, fences, roofs, patio furniture and more. Any overspray on glass should be rinsed off prior to drying to avoid spotting.
It is always a good practice to pre-water surrounding plantings prior to use, avoid unnecessary overspray, and rinse after cleaning.
