One of the many advantages of choosing a Permateek synthetic teak deck is that it is easy to maintain.
Wash your synthetic
teak flooring with soap and water. The perfect time to do this is after
cruising when you are washing the boat anyway. Your normal boat wash detergent
will be fine or a small drop of washing up liquid in the water will do the job
equally as well. Should you spill any nasties on the deck such as diesel,
acetone or paint, wash these off immediately. For greasy marks such as sun
cream or food stains, hot soapy water does the trick.
For more ingrained
dirt, pressure washing the surface can be very effective. You can also scrub
the deck surface in the direction of the grain, using a scouring pad and hot
Acetone and other industrial chemicals are not allowed on Permateek, although short-term contact might not show damages.
