Anti-Mold Decking

Despite many homeowners' best efforts, mold and mildew can latch on to exterior decking, causing permanent black spots that can affect the deck's appearance. Once it takes hold, the mold can be extremely difficult to remove, even with heavy scrubbing. What's more, mold can affect decks made of either wood or composite materials, which are becoming increasingly popular.

CorrectDeck, a manufacturer of composite decking, has come up with a solution. The company has just introduced CorrectDeck CX with Microban, an antimicrobial technology that has been used in such applications as kitchen countertops to protect against mold growth.

Microban penetrates the cell wall of microorganisms, disputing their cell functions and rendering them unable to survive, grow or reproduce. It will not wash off or wear away, which makes CorrectDeck CX easier to clean.

Not only does Microban hinder the growth of mold, but it also provides fade resistance and protects the decking from stains caused by grills or food spills. The result is a strong, durable deck that will keep its good looks for years to come. For more information: or 877-DECK-887.
