Cleaning a Trex Deck with BT200
Trex is the leading brand of alternative decking, railing, fencing, and trim products designed to maximize your outdoor living experience.
Trex composite products are made of a unique combination of wood and plastic fibers. Trex gets its plastic and wood fibers from reclaimed or recycled resources. Including sawdust and used pallets from woodworking operations, and recycled plastic grocery bags from all over the country.
According to the Trex Website, the are a variety of ways and harmful chemicals that are to be used when cleaning a Trex Deck. Deck Brightners, Bleach, and even cleaners containing dangerous acids are recommended by Trex to clean mold and mildew, grease, oil, food stains, and many others.
Well, we have great news for you. The EATOILS BT200 Certified GREEN degreaser is the ONLY product that you need.
Recently Pro Power Wash, a sister company of Clean and Green Solutions, of Porter, TX was called to the home of Mrs. Kathy Sexton, of Kingwood, TX. Mrs. Sexton had tried 4 other cleaning companies try to clean her TREX Deck and all produced unsatisfactory results. Basically, they could not get it clean, even using bleach.
Pro Power Wash used the EATOILS BT200 Green Degreaser at a rate of 6 ounces of BT200 to 1 gallon of water. (Total Used was 12 ounces and 2 gallons of water). Using a garden type pump up sprayer, the BT200 solution was sprayed on the deck in small areas at a time. The solution was then agitated into the deck lightly with the use of a street broom, just until a white lather formed. The BT200 was allowed to sit for approximately 15-20 minutes and then rinsed with a power washer lightly using no more than 1000 PSI at about 1-2 feet from the surface.
Mrs. Sexton was extremely satisfied and could not believe the results. She has also purchased a quart of the BT200. Because of how easy the BT200 is to use, not to mention that is totally safe, she will now be able to keep her TREX Deck clean herself year round.
