    cedar clapboard siding. I just want to clean it and then re-stain. Thanks again..

    Dan · 08/15/2020
    Is this recommended for siding as well? And can it be put in a pressure washer pump safely? How long should it sit on the siding before rinsing?
    Thanks.

      RAD Products · 08/16/2020
      You can use this for cleaning siding but it cannot be applied through a pressure washer. Use a pump sprayer and then pressure wash off after 10-15 minutes.

    This is suppose to be eco friendly, but is it safe to use on a dock in a lake? Will washing this product or the brightener into the lake cause problems?

    I just used the cleaner then the brighter. Everything looks great. Unfortunately it’s going to rain today before I can stain. Do I need to re clean or brighten after the rain? Thanks

    Does RAD cleaner affect metal stair railing(It was black) in this pictures?

    Should I need to make a cover to protect it?


    Thanks.

    I sanded my pergola. It still has lots of silver/grey patches. Can I stain now or should I use your cleaner. I will be staining with a water based semi solid stain from Sherwin Williams.

    I used RAD on a new deck that was built 6 months ago. Waited week and half before staining. Now after a month we are having rains and the sap is bleeding out. Is this caused by the cleaner opening up the pores of the wood. What can be done to remove the white spots that are everywhere? Thank you.
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 06/29/2020
      No, the cleaner does not cause the sap to leech out. Sap happens on its own and cannot be prevented or removed besides sanding.

    Is this essentially sodium percarbonate?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 06/27/2020
      No, not just sodium percarbonate. Numerous additional ingredient that allows it to work on wood more effectively and with cold water as well.

    Going to clean & stain 14 month old pressured treated deck, never been stained before. Do I apply the cleaner/brightener to railing spindles/balusters as well, or is this more intended for deck floor/horizontal surfaces? I do have a bit of mildew on some spindles that needs cleaning. Spray application and thoroughly washing off could be tricker on spindles. Thanks

    Joe · 06/11/2020
    When applying the cleaner and the brightener, is there a more advantageous applicator to use? Do the products have to be vigorously brushed on/into the wood or does the product just sit on top of the wood to do its job?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 06/11/2020
      You apply with a pump sprayer and pressure washing off for best results.

    Hello. I am going to use this cleaner on a new cedar deck railing prior to staining. Below the deck is a vegetable garden. When rinsing the cleaner off it will drain into the vegetable garden. Is this safe for me to eat the vegetables?

    I am going to use your cleaner and brightener on my redwood deck. The balustrades on the railing are copper. If I get either of those products on the copper will it damage it?

      It should not harm anything but it may clean or brighten it.

        I finished by decks and they look great. The cleaner and brightener had no effect on the copper spindles, which was the result I was hoping for.

    Hi there I hear that you have amazing products and was wonder by any chance you'd have a product that can clean off oxidation from a painted house, this house is in Oregon where there's a lot of rain. Our HOA is making everyone repaint their houses but I think they just look a bit dingy from this strange film on the outside. Please let me know if you know of or have a product that can clean a painted surface. Thank you!

    I need to clean my deck prior to applying an oil based transparent stain. In the past I have used bleach based cleaners that also brighten the wood. Do I need to buy the cleaner and the brightener to accomplish the same result? Trying to get away from the bleach cleaner.

    My cleaner, brightener and stain should be delivered today to stain my deck rails. The decking is Timbertech. Will the cleaner / brightener damage the Timbertech?

    We have a 1400 sq ft multi-level (1-2 steps in 3 different places) deck that currently has Ben Moore Arborcoat stain on it, that was slapped on by the previous owners before selling to us. It's peeling very badly on all the floor surfaces. The deck is part full sun/part shade and has some greenish something growing on shaded parts. We have a power washer, so can I just use the cleaner in the power washer to get the current product off and clean -then use the brightener and solid stain? Or would you recommend the stripper, rather than cleaner?

    And for 1400 sq ft --> 2 packages of cleaner or stripper and 2 packages of brightener, and then 12 gallons of solid stain should be about right (2 coats of solid stain)? Thank you!

      RAD Products · 05/28/2020
      Strip and then solid stain. Correct of the prep. About 10-12 gallons for the two coats of solid stain.

    I have a handmade redwood bend-style swing setup, which was here when we moved in 19 years ago. There was a solid/opaque stain on it then and I have periodically re-coated it, however this is my first time with RAD. I want to prep the wood by cleaning only: no need to get down to bare wood grain since I'll be using your solid stain. Must I use the RAD cleaner or will a cleaner/degreaser such as SimpleGreen suffice? Also, I need something safe for the foliage that surrounds the set. Thanks!
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 05/20/2020
      Use the RAD Cleaner and pressure wash for prep. Simple Green is not sufficient for prep.

    I used your cleaner, then brightener, then stained a 25 year old cedar deck 2 years ago. Worked great. I want to re-stain this spring. Do I need to use both the cleaner and the Brightener again or just the cleaner?

    I bought the Chapin sprayer you used to sell to apply the cleaner and brightener. You guys recommended one of the color tips(yellow, red, blue) but I don't remember which it was. Should I use the fine, medium or coarse spray pattern for the cleaner and brightener?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 05/12/2020
      Use the yellow tip. Do not mix the powder directly in the sprayer. Do that in a separate bucket first and then transfer it over.

    I have a new pressure treated deck that was built this January. There are two spots on the deck that seem to have gotten more pressure treatment than the rest as water gets repelled from them (see pic). Will the cleaner, stripper, or any other product you know of get these spots out?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 05/12/2020
      No, that is deep into the wood and cannot be cleaned out.

    Last summer I used RAD stripper, wood brightener and semi transparent cedar stain and was very pleased with the way it turned out. This years I would like to apply another coat of RAD semi transparent cedar stain. Can I just use the RAD deck cleaner and then the stain?

    @RAD Products

    If I do not have five gallon sprayer, can I mix to the appropriate concentration ratio in 2.5 gallons and get the same results for the cleaner and brightener? instead of 32 oz of product, simply use 16oz?

    Obviously having to remix the rest when the 2.5 gallon sprayer runs out?

    My plan was to apply evenly via pump sprayer, but didn't want to buy another sprayer just for this.
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 04/22/2020
      Most sprayers are 2-3 gallons so just mix 6-8 oz per gallon of water.

    Ipe deck, last finished 3 years ago with Messmers (no pigment). Have cleaned it 5 times with the deck wash, alternating pressure washing and scrubbing with a broom brush. Last time just let it sit 20 minutes keeping it slightly damp, then rinsed. Any suggestions how to get to that stubborn grey?

      Use the RAD Cleaner and then the brightener. Some residual gray will go away when stained.

        Thanks. I was worried about the pressure-wash streaks showing through. I have not yet applied the brightener. I have some RAD cleaner left, perhaps for one more gallon. Should I re-wet, rinse, and then apply the brightener before it dries?

          Your pressure wash marks are permanent and cannot be fixed outside of power sanding.

            Jim · 04/11/2020
            Thanks. The marks are from the most recent pressure wash. It seems each RAD cleaner application removes a bit more of the grey, just not all of it.

    I have a 9-10-year-old IPE deck/stairs that were never treated to my knowledge. It has weathered grey and has some mold/lichen on the wood. It seems that the cleaner and brightener should be sufficient as there are no other stains/finishes on the wood, would you agree? Do you find that a second application is usually necessary? Thanks
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 02/29/2020
      Yes the prep would be the cleaner and brightener. 1-2 coats depending on how porous the wood is.

    Trying to work around the weather to prep and stain my 4-month-old wood deck. If I clean and brighten today but I wait to stain (not your brand) because rain is expected tomorrow, will that in any way negate the effect of the clean/brighten treatment, or negatively affect the wood's ability to properly absorb the stain?

    I ordered the RAD stripper and brightener kit for my huge front and back deck. Attempted to strip the front deck yesterday using the stripper and a pressure washer to remove...while I could tell it worked a little it mostly left a ton of slimy coating and didn't get the majority of this stubborn stain off (no idea what the previous owner used). The existing stain has been peeling and flaking badly in half the areas and then is stubbornly intact in others. At this point I am unsure how to proceed. Should I use a floor sander to remove? Or do I need to strip again to get more off? And do I then have to use a cleaner and brightener after stripping or is just the brightener sufficient? Thank you.
