One concern that a homeowner might have when considering whether to choose millboard decking is how much maintenance it will require once it is installed and in use. It is an important point given that millboard, decking, and other decking products, such as wood decking have different requirements with regards to maintaining them.
We are going to explore the ways in which millboard decking should be maintained. but before we do we should raise one extremely important point. That is, regardless of our general advice regarding maintaining millboard decking you should always check the manufacturer’s guidance for the specific millboard decking product you buy and follow it to the letter.
Whilst most millboard decking will be manufactured to similar standards and using more or less the same types of materials, there can be differences between them. That could mean a specific cleaning method is not suited to a particular brand, or that a certain type of maintenance is needed. These differences will be rare, but it pays to check, just to be sure.
As for the vast majority of millboard decking products, you will find that the amount of maintenance they need is relatively small, and that is one of its main advantages over decking made from wood, for example.
