    Hi, Dennis! You can find composite decking sealer at your local home center. Also, we recommend applying Wet and Forget Outdoor to clean the deck. Just spray it on and forget it! 🙂

    I have a composite wood deck that each spring has blackish spots on it. I have found I can remove by power washing with a little bleach and dish washing detergent and water put on with a sprayer. My question is do you have a suggestion on how to keep it from coming back each spring? Is there a sealer that will work on composite decking?
