Care and Maintenance Important Considerations

• Ensure minimum 6" ventilation under deck and required spacing between decking boards. • Improve drainage or grade soil to eliminate standing water under decks. • Direct downspouts, downspout extensions and splash guards away from decks. • Position dryer vents away from decks. • Maintain a deck that is dry and clean. • Clean your deck at least twice a year after the last of the major pollen events. • Use extreme caution with pressure washers and use at pressures less than 1,500 psi at 12" above deck surface. • Keep debris out of gaps between the decking boards so rain showers can remove pollen and organic debris between cleanings. • Minimize the use of wet mulch up against the deck structure. • Place a vinyl-backed splatter guard mat underneath your grill.

Ventilation

Make sure there is adequate and unobstructed air flow under the deck to prevent excessive water absorption. Improve drainage or grade flat areas where standing water may gather. For decks with limited ventilation, 6" of clear ventilation is required.

Mind the Gap

If the gap between decking boards is less than 3/16", organic debris such as leaves, seeds or pollen can settle on the deck and clog gaps. Water can pool, steeping organic debris that forms a “tea” or of tannin which may stain your deck. This organic debris is a strong food source for mold. Keeping the gap clean is the easiest way to keep the deck clean. If gapping becomes clogged, use a garden hose, a spatula, putty knife or similar tool to remove the debris and help the deck maintain itself.

Clean your deck

Composite decking materials are pretty resilient. Clean your deck at least twice each year to remove pollen, organic debris, dirt or stains. For decking in areas with high gypsum content soils, we recommend a citric acid based cleaning solution for the initial and subsequent cleanings. For decking in areas with primarily clay soils, we recommend a mild vinegar-based cleaning solution, or a mild dish washing detergent solution for the initial and subsequent cleanings.

23

Dirt and Grime

Generally, a broom or a blower will work better than a hose for removing scattered organic materials like leaves. Over time, especially with kids and pets, the deck may become soiled. Dislodge accumulated dirt with a broom or by using soap and water and a scrub brush. Scrubbing in the direction of the grain is best. Thoroughly rinse off with a garden hose. Skilled professionals may use a pressure washer with wide fan tips, at low pressures under 1,500 psi and at safe distances, 12” above deck. In the wrong hands, your composite deck can be damaged. Exercise extreme caution.

Tannin Stains

Tannins naturally occur in all wood species and sometimes migrate to the surface in composite decking where surface wood fibers are exposed to sun and water. Tannin stains resolve themselves over time. Depending on the season this can take several weeks to several months. Once tannin stains disappear after the weathering process is complete, they do not re-appear. To hasten removal of tannin stains, use Corte Clean, ConcrobiumXT Eco-Wash or other commercial deck cleaners designed specifically for your type of decking, strictly following the manufacturer’s instructions.

Oil and Grease Stains

Speedy clean up is best. The longer the oil or grease sits on the surface the more likely it is to soak into composite wood fibers. The amount of time depends on the type of stain, the exposure to water and sun and other factors. To clean up grease and oil stains that soap and water cannot remove, use Corte Clean, ConcrobiumXT Eco-Wash or other commercial deck cleaners designed specifically for your type of decking. Follow manufacturer’s recommendations and test in an inconspicuous area prior to cleaning the entire deck. Install a splash guard mat under your grill to help protect your deck from grease stains.

Construction Chalk

Colored chalk, used in construction for marking straight lines prior to cutting, is permanent on most surfaces. Contact the manufacturer of the specific brand and color of chalk for a cleaning solution that may prove effective. The best advice is to avoid colored chalk, using workable alternatives such as white chalk or baby powder.

Salt and Calcium Chloride

Build up of salt and calcium chloride from snow and ice removal is easily removed with enough water and perhaps a light scrub. Use a garden hose or sprayer. If using a pressure washer, use at low pressures under 1,500 psi and at safe distances, 12” above deck, to avoid damaging your deck. Never use METAL shovels or sharpedged tools to remove snow and ice on the surface of any Fiberon composite or PVC decking product.

Rubber Mats

Welcome mats or grill mats with a rubber or latex backing can mark your deck. The marks can be removed, but to avoid them, use vinyl-backed mats or colorfast woven rugs only.

Mold and Mildew

Mold and mildew are common environmental conditions. Molds grow on decaying organic material such as wood, leaf decay and pollen. Tiny and lightweight, mold spores travel easily through the air. Different climates experience varying degrees of these conditions depending on the amount of moisture and heat present. To thrive, mold and mildew need air, water, elevated temperatures and a food source. There is no way to eliminate all these conditions in the environment. A wide variety of building materials including concrete, wood products, vinyl siding and many others are subject to potential mold growth. To minimize mold on your decking, clean your deck as often as needed, at least twice each year. Climate conditions vary in different regions of the country and may necessitate more periodic cleaning. Removal of leaves, debris, and other organic materials that provide a food source for mold development is important. If mold is present on your deck, there are many commercial products available for cleaning mold. Cleaners containing sodium percarbonate have proven successful at minimizing mold growth and are eco-friendly. One of the more successful products on the marketplace is CorteClean速, an eco-friendly cleaner. As with other cleaners, Corte Clean must be applied with strict adherence to the manufacturers instructions for best results.

Fiberon Warranties Fiberon Outdoor Flooring™ PVC Decking Limited Lifetime Performance Warranty and 25-Year Stain and Fade Limited Warranty Limited Lifetime Performance Warranty Coverage: Fiberon warrants to the original homeowner (Purchaser) that its Fiberon PVC Outdoor Flooring™ Decking Products shall remain free from material manufacturing defects, and under normal and proper service conditions shall not splinter, check, blister, cup, rot or suffer structural damage from termites or fungal decay. In the event a warranted defect occurs, Fiberon’s sole responsibility shall be, at its option, to repair or replace any decking material determined by an authorized Fiberon representative to be defective. Fiberon reserves the right to refund that portion of the purchase price paid by Purchaser for such defective material, excluding the initial installation costs. This Warranty shall apply to the original purchaser, as long as they own the residence upon which the material was installed. This warranty may be transferred one (1) time within the five (5) year period beginning on the date of purchase by the original Purchaser. In the event of such transfer this Limited Warranty coverage shall continue for 25 years from that original purchase date. To submit a claim under this limited warranty, Purchaser, or the transferee, shall provide Fiberon with photographs and a description of any claimed defect, and a copy of the original invoice. Fiberon must make a determination on the claim before any repairs may be undertaken. If it is determined that a defect exists under the terms of this warranty, replacement material will be provided that is as close as possible in color, design and quality to the original installation, but we do not guarantee an exact match as colors and designs will change. Fiberon does not warrant against, and no implied warranty shall be deemed to cover, any conditions attributable to (1) installation not in conformance with Fiberon PVC Outdoor Flooring’s specific installation techniques and requirements, including proper joist spacing and any use of non-approved fasteners; (2) use of Fiberon PVC Outdoor Flooring decking in non-residential installations or in applications not included in Fiberon PVC Outdoor Flooring guidelines, including any use that is not in compliance with local building codes and ordinances; (3) any damages resulting from movement, settling, distortion or collapse of the supporting structure, or the ground upon which the structure is built; (4) impact from foreign objects; (5) damages resulting from Acts of God including earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, lightning, etc; (6) discoloration caused by aggressive atmospheric pollutants including but not limited to metallic oxides or particles, and airborne mold or mildew; (7) damage resulting from fire or exposure to excessive heat sources such as cooking devices or retro-reflective surfaces; (8) the application of improper paints, stains, surface treatments or other chemical substances including but not limited to unapproved cleaners, pesticides; and (9) climate change or any other cause beyond the control of Fiberon. Fiberon PVC Outdoor Flooring decking contains no cellulosic fillers that can support the growth of mold or mildew; however, mold and mildew can develop on surface contaminants. Rinsing away any surface contamination as it occurs will prevent the formation of mold or mildew. FIBERON SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LABOR COSTS AND OTHER EXPENSES FOR THE INSTALLATION AND REMOVAL OF THE ORIGINAL MATERIAL AND INSTALLATION OF THE REPLACEMENT PRODUCTS, RESULTING FROM ANY BREACH OF ANY APPLICABLE WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, OR ANY CLAIM UNDER CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, RELATED TO FIBERON DECKING PRODUCTS.
