Cleaning Flexyteak ?

Does anybody have any experience getting (dirt-scuffing) marks off Flexyteak ? As flexyteak is made from PVC I thought it would be easy to clean using regular tube /pvc cleaning kit but it is not the case; Maybe because the surface is very uneven that it is more difficult than cleaning a tube but using a hard brush with PVC cleaner I thought that it would eventually work, but no.

I checked with the suppliers for my last craft and they told me to use a high pressure hose on the flexideck
