Cleaning is essential for any powder coated surface in order to retain the original performance characteristics of the finish. Coastal and city environments contain chloride and sulphur compounds which can induce corrosion, and grime can absorb moisture and hold it against the powder coated surface which can damage the coating.
DecoWood has the same cleaning requirements as any standard powder coated finish. Using warm soapy water, DecoWood should be cleaned according to the following schedule.
Environment Cleaning Frequency Treatment Mild Every Six Months Warm Moderate Every Three Months Warm Extreme Every Month Warm
Every Six Months
Every Three Months
DecoWood is very difficult to scratch as it is a hard-baked powder coating – certainly much harder than timber. Having said that, accidents can happen when significant force is thrust upon the finish, and there are options available in this situation. Minor scratches can be buffed out with some cut and polish, like you would do with a scratch in your car. For more significant scratches, colour-matched touch up paint is available, which blends seamlessly with the wood grain pattern.
