How should I look after my marine decking?
We recommend cleaning as soon as possible to avoid staining, since some things, such as mustard, rusted fish hooks, fish blood, and bird droppings, can discolor the decking if not removed swiftly. Bleach should never be used!
Keep a bottle of U-DEK® Cleaner handy for when you need it. When your boat is not in use, avoid longer-term exposure to the weather by keeping it in a garage or under a cover. This will help extend the life of your decks and decrease color fading.
Light amplification must be protected and avoided. As these things may refract/reflect light, storing inflatable pool toys or water bottles on U-DEK® for an extended period of time, as well as positioning decking near reflective surfaces or beneath glass, can be damaging to the decking.
