Step One For general cleaning, use low pressure water to hose down the Marine Deck, then use a medium bristle deck brush & warm soapy water, working in a forward & back motion to clean the surface. Rinse off all soapy residue from the deck with water. The detergent or soap product must be non-acidic.
Step Two For harder stains like fish blood, squid ink & sunscreen lotion etc… If after trying step one, you find additional cleaning is required, please do the following. While the Marine Deck is still wet, spray the affected area with a small amount of spray-on degreaser. Then using your fingers, work the area in a circular motion until the stain starts to lift.
Step Three Then use the deck brush again & rinse well with water. Repeat if necessary. Degreaser should only be used to spot clean with, not as a general cleaning solution.
Preventative measures are wise to reduce cleaning. If you are about to land a large fish that needs to be bled, pre-wet the floor to reduce staining. Use deck wash when fishing to clean bait, slime, blood & squid ink while in your vessel. While Marine Deck is very forgiving, it is a foam product & dragging heavy items such as esky’s & cooler’s etc… may result in damage to the Marine Deck.
