Restore-A-Deck Wood Brightener: The Best Stain Remover for Decks

Restore-A-Deck Wood Brightener is a biodegradable, powdered concentrate that is mixed with water to brighten and restore the natural beauty of all species of exterior wood. This product excels at brightening, removing rust stains, and tannin stains caused by fallen leaves. Restore-A-Deck Wood Brightener is a safe, eco-friendly product that will not only brighten but neutralize the surface of the wood, creating an ideal surface that is ready to be stained.

This product is the perfect complement to our wood cleaning product, Restore-A-Deck Wood Cleaner. We recommend you use this product as part of our comprehensive wood cleaning system.

The Restore A Deck system is a multistep deck cleaning system, and best results are achieved when using all 3 products. This product is step 2 of the Restore A Deck system.

Uses of Restore-A-Deck Wood Brightener

Restore-A-Deck Wood Brightener is intended for use on all types of weathered, exterior wood surfaces including decks, fences, siding, outdoor furniture, gazebos, and playsets.

Recommended for surface preparation prior to initial application of semi-transparent finishes and stains. The product can be used as a cleaner and brightener for redwood, or as a neutralizer to further brighten wood species, like pine, that have been cleaned with Restore-A-Deck Wood Cleaner or stripped with Restore-A-Deck Stain Stripper. For lasting protection of your exterior wood, after using Restore-A-Deck Wood Brightener, treat the surface with Restore-A-Deck Premium Wood Stain.

Note: Restore-A-Deck Wood Brightener is not formulated to remove intact paint, stain, or clear finishes. This brightener is not a cleaner. It will not remove grayed wood fibers. It is meant to serve as a wood brightener and pH balance after using a deck cleaner or stain stripper. The best application for use is after a wood cleaning product.

    I am uncertain of the type of stain (oil vs acrylic base) previously used on my pressure treated deck. The deck needs maintenance and I believe it is to be cleaned, stripped, brightened, sealed and stained (seems like too many required processes and maybe painting is an option).

    A) I see if your stripper product is used that the cleaner is not necessary but it seems the stripper only removes the stain but not any potential mold or mildew and their spores like the cleaner states. Please elaborate.
    A2) If recommended to use the cleaner as well as the stripper would you use the cleaner or stripper first?

    B1) Does your product also destroy or penetrate any mold/mildew under the deck (all the way through the wood) or just prevent it from surfacing?
    B2) If yes to B1, would it be the cleaner and/or stripper product?

    C) Do you recommend using the cleaner only on an annual basis for maintenance? Or what do you recommend should be done as maintenance annually (I understand to clean, strip, brighten and seal/stain should be done every 3-4 years if done properly)

    [u]Deck info[/u]:
    I have a large deck surrounding my entire backyard (approx 650 sq ft) with a 15ft pool slightly to the right back middle part of deck. I have not performed any maintenance on the deck (3 years) and believe the deck is approx 5 years old. The deck is hit with a lot of sun in the summer and subject to snow and rain (we get a bit here in NY). The deck also sits on soil and I notice some mold/mildew underneath the deck.
    The spindles and rails have much of the stain (either transparent or semi-transparent) still intact but the floors and steps are starting to show signs of gray as well as splintering.

    Thank you!

    Brightener neutralizes the caustic of the stripper leaving the wood in a neutral pH balance.

    Glad you liked the stripper!

    We did the stripper...LOVED IT! Amazing results!! Very easy to use. We have a wrap around porch so it did take a while ;-). We followed with the brightener, but we didnt see any discernable difference.Our wood never really darkened after the maybe that is why. Hoping that it really helps our sealer adhere better.

    Love the Restore A Deck stripper...but couldnt see any brightening effect or purpose.
