Once your pride and joy of your cottage is back in the water, it’s time to make sure it is in the best possible condition. One of the greatest benefits of owning an aluminum dock is how long it lasts without the need for repairs.
A Dock To Last A Lifetime
Aluminum is one of the best materials to use for docks for so many reasons. It is lightweight and extremely durable. It is also eco-friendly due to its highly recyclable capabilities. Aluminum is on of the most aesthetically pleasing materials. Above all else, it is built to last. You will never need to paint, stain, seal or sand these docks like you would with a wooden dock. All CanadaDocks dock kits are backed by our limited lifetime warranty. Our new 2020 Anodized Series is even better to wear against the elements. Not to mention the metallic matte finish looks stunning. It is a corrosion resistant, super strong option. Learn more about the new Anodized Series here.
Cleaning Your Dock
After braving the winter weather, your dock may need a little refresh to get it shiny looking and new once again.
Before you start cleaning, grab a hose or a bucket of water and clear away any debris that may be stuck on the dock. It may be all you need to do. Or if you want a more thorough clean, doing this will make it easier when you start using a cleaning product.
In an effort to stay eco-friendly, ensure that you are using a cleaning product that is safe for your environment. Any product that you use will end up getting washed into the water below. Many cleaning products in your household may be harmful to aquatic life if it gets into the lake. Ensure that any cleaning product that you use is biodegradable and phosphate-free. Look for a product with a neutral pH level. You can also use baking soda for a simple and effective option.
