How do I clean trek decks?

Bought trex for decks because claims were no upkeep- now they need it. I've been advised to buy special cleaner and follow time consuming directions. I have three decks- one large, one medium sized, and one smaller. The first two are at a vacation home we don't visit much. Other deck is smaller at year round home. Anyone experienced with cleaning trex?

    My husband and I helped my brother put in a trex deck because they won't rot. Things still get dirty though. When his needs cleaning, I used a solution of dawn dish soap and water. Use a scrub brush with a handle, so you are not on your hands and knees. Scrub and rinse. Looks like new again. Take care in spraying off the deck onto plants. I just fill a bucket with hot water and use about a 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup of the original blue dawn. Happy scrubbing!

      @Arlene damico All the decks are white, we do get the green stuff + as the neighbors trees are all on the lot next to us wind blows stuff. Going to try the scrub first as we do not have power washer (yet?) Thanks

    I also suggest a power washer with the delicate nozzle.

      @Tina Thanx for your tip but as we do not have a power washer, going to try scrub -someone else will hopefully being doing scrub as we just realized we have allergies which might be stirred up.
