What to expect from Smartboard
Expect some colour variation to exist between boards upon fitting them, the colour of boards will become more consistent with time. It is also normal for the striped look of the ribbed face to become less evident with time.
SmartBoard may become marked if scuffed during fitting or in use. Marks caused by scuffing are normal and will gradually fade with time.
It is normal for tide mark type water staining to appear on new SmartBoard decking after the first few bouts of heavy rain. The appearance of tide marks will diminish and become less apparent with time as the washing effect of rain diminishes and the weathering effect of ultra-violet light takes place.
SmartBoard should be kept free of debris by regular sweeping and cleaned when necessary using a stiff bristled brush, warm soapy water and rinse with clean fresh water.
To seal and provide added protection to SmartBoard apply CompoCare by Owatrol Ltd, bearing in mind this will create a less matt, more satin finish.
Chocolate Brown and Slate coloured board are better at hiding day to day grime compared to the much lighter Battleship Grey, whereas staining created by fat/oils from food stuffs will be more evident on the darker Chocolate Brown and slate. Regarding removing fatty stains the use of washing up liquid is as good as anything.
The use of a pressure washer is also fine, whilst taking care not to damage or change the look of the surface of SmartBoard by placing the lance too close to it. It is also wise to clean a small inconspicuous test area and let it dry before cleaning the whole deck with a pressure washer.
Use CompoClean by Owatrol Ltd for a deep clean and removal of most stains.
