IPE Decking Maintenance: Mahogany Decking Maintenance
This is because of accelerated drying damage, which usually happens the 1st month after the deck has been built. So, double coating, especially wet on wet, is a definite foundation to longevity. More so, Ipe has much natural defense against water absorption, decay, cupping, twisting and splintering.
Keep Ipe decking clean from tree droppings, leaves & other dirt. This is elementary: to sweep excess debris off the deck. Cleaning with special wood products, rinsing with water, brightening and neutralizing the pH are the full cycle. If the surface is clean and dry, it's in a good condition.
