Cleaning "plastic" teak

The yacht service company has been cleaning the plastic teak floor in my pilothouse with a light bleach solution. However, that has not been working very well and I am looking for alternatives.

Suggestions from people who have this type of floor?

I had some Plasteak on a previous boat. I used a pressure washer to clean it. That may not work inside your salon though.

Here's a link to the Lonseal Maintenance Page
The cleaning recommendations vary by flooring product used.
I believe Mainship used the Satin Finsh version which I believe is the middle "Topseal" category.
They recommend a neutral Ph cleaner - bleach doesn't fit that category - mild dish soap does.
Ph of common cleaners

The only cleaning we have had to do on our interior PLasTeak flooring is a Swiffer.
A call or email to the 1877FloorGuy.com may be helpful.

I have the exterios PlasDeck material installed on our aft & side decks and clean w/ Starbright Deck Cleaner and a deck brush or mildly abrasive scotch bright pad if excessively dirty. I have used WoodyWax on exterior to help "seal" the texture and make cleaning much easier.

Thanks, all, will try these recommendations. The interior salon floor is fine, its the exterior pilot house floor that needs cleaning.
