It's a winter wonderland in many parts of the country this week, and while Trex decks certainly are beautiful even covered in snow, at some point you'll want to clear yours. With more snow in the weekend forecast, here's how you do it:
To remove snow from Trex Transcend, Enhance and Select decks, a plastic shovel is preferred over metal. Calcium chloride or rock salt also can be used to melt the snow and ice from the deck surface.< /p>
If you own one of the older generation Trex composite decks, such as Accents, calcium chloride or rock salt may be used but should be rinsed off as soon as possible. Use caution not to scratch your boards when removing snow or ice with a snow shovel and never use a metal snow shovel on an older generation deck.
Follow these simple steps this winter and your Trex deck will maintain its beauty throughout every season.
