Yes mine is like a skating rink at present. There are commercial treatments that are sprayed on but these seem so very expensisve and short lived. There must be a cheap household recipe.

You could try using non-slip decking paint. Im not too sure how effective it is!

The best way to keep a deck from becoming slippy is by ensuring that the deck is cleaned.. preferably at leat once a week, by giving it a good scrub with a stiff decking brush.

If there is no organic matter on the deck and no oils or other slippery liquids building up on the surface then it should remain safe enough :)

There are many products available on the market which claim to reduce the risk of slip and no doubt many of them do. My company SkidProof (Bucks) has a non-slip floor coating which works exceptionally well on decking. It is a clear, easy to clean product which lasts for years and perhaps more importantly is non-culturised which means that does not promote the growth of algae and bacteria.
