How to protect Rainbodeck materials under a masonry construction?

  • During masonry construction, Rainbodeck must be covered AT ALL TIMES, preferably with a sheet of tarp or construction grade plastic film. Mineral deposits, left over from construction, can mix with water and evaporate, leaving behind deposits which create a white film on the material surface.

  • Especially for decks, as for indoor flooring, the installation of floor covering materials should always be the last step of the project to avoid any construction residue on your Rainbodeck surface.

  • If any construction residues remain on the Rainbodeck surface, please remove them with a soft, non-metal brush carefully to avoid scratching the Rainbodeck surface, or clean with soap and water.

Can I use a pressure washer to clean Rainbodeck?

  • Yes, a pressure washer with a wide fan tip, set the pressure to under 80 bars and at a distance of 40 cm (do not use a rotating nozzle). Work with extreme caution because a pressure washer can damage your deck.

Is A routing oiling, varnishing or staining of Rainbodeck required?

  • Absolutely not. Rainbodeck material is manufactured with weatherproof technology and unlike wood, it does not fade over time or require refinishing.


Dirt and debris

  • Surface debris should be sprayed off with a hose. Use warm, soapy water and a soft, non-metal scrub brush to remove debris.

Ice and snow

  • Calcium chloride or rock salt can be used to melt ice and snow on Rainbodeck decking. Care should be taken to rinse off the surface when weather permits. Use plastic shovels (never metal) to remove snow and ice. A metal shovel may chip the decking surface and void the warranty.


  • Any oil/grease/food spills must be removed promptly. Clean with warm soapy water and a soft, non-metal brush.  Grease and oil may require an all-purpose cleaner, if warm soapy water does not work.

Mineral deposits and swimming pool water

  • Prepare a soft bristled brush or broom, and mop towel. Use the following cleaners:

  • Water + vinegar in equal proportions

  • Household/ laundry detergent Toilet bowl cleaner

Mould and mildew

  • Mould and mildew occur periodically in everyday environments. Therefore, surface mould and mildew may appear on the surface if decaying organic materials such as, but not limited to, wood, leaf decay and pollen are present along with elevated temperatures, air and water. There is no way to completely eliminate mould and mildew, but you can minimise their occurrence by removing any decaying organic materials as quickly as possible. If mould and mildew appear, use soapy water and a soft, non-metal scrub brush to clean the surface.
