How To Maintain Decking

Giving your decking a refresh every so often is a great way to improve the appearance of your caravan. Sweep any leaves off and then hose it down with cold water. If you have any stains apply a decking cleaner with a soft brush and brush away the dirt.

For UPVC decking you should sweep away the debris and then scrub it lightly with soapy warm water. Clean the boards with a deck brush and rinse. The sun will dry the decking, so you don’t need to worry about that part.

Exterior Cleaning

When done by a professional exterior cleaning can be extremely costly but don’t worry you can easily do this yourself at home. You will need a pressure washer and a suitable cleaning product such as automotive soap.

To clean the roof, you will require a ladder, hose, long mop, and a cloth. If you haven’t cleaned this in a long time, there may be a lot of dirt. Ask for help from friends and family if required. You will have your holiday home looking like new in no time.

Interior Cleaning

Cleaning inside your holiday home is just the same as cleaning any home. Some tasks need doing more often than others. Write a list to help you keep on top of everything.

Some chemical cleaning products can be harsh so make sure to keep your holiday home well ventilated. Upholstery and carpet cleaning is something that will also need doing but not so often. If you don’t have a carpet cleaner, you can always rent one out.
