    I would like to use the cleaner as a house wash prior to repainting. I want to know if I can use it through the injector of my pressure washer. Also if I need to do anything to prevent damage to my Brazilian redwood deck that has already been stained for the year.

    What is the main ingredient of your Restore A Deck Cleaner and your Restore A Deck Stripper? I have a deck/landing made of Pau Lope. During the past 15 years I've cleaned it with various products, none to my satisfaction. I would like to get it really clean before I apply yet another application of Penofin.

    You should use the the Stripper not the Cleaner. Penofin turns darker in color and needs to be removed fully to restore the wood color.

    I live in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I stripped, and brightened my deck two years ago using Restore -A-Deck kits.. Then I applied TWP 100 in the Cedartone color. The deck still looks good, but before another winter, I would like to reapply a coat of TWP 100. Do I need to use Restore=A -Deck cleaner before I ereapply the TWP 100? Should I also use the brightener?

    Just use the cleaner and lightly wash and reapply.

    I have an enclosed screen porch with rough sawn pine siding. About five years ago I applied a semi transparent stain sealer in a honey gold color. It has greyed on the areas closest to the screens. I want to clean it up but I am concerned about cleaners and other products being too aggressive and having the wood fibers of the sawn texture peeling off and or darkening the color. What would be the best process?

    Cleaners do not peel off wood fibers but you will remove oxidized wood cells. This is normal when cleaning. Best to clean and brighten for the prep.

    I am about to re-stain my deck. The dimensions are 33x17. It is a rather old deck, at least 20 years old. How much and what products do you think I should use to clean it before staining? I have some mildew and weathered look to it. Thank you.z44

    If not stain on the wood then no need to strip. Use the Restore A Deck Kits for this. Apply the Step 1 and pressure wash off. Apply the Step 2 after to neutralize.

    Hi,
    I'm about to re-stain a deck but I need to strip the old stain first. Do I have to use the cleaner first, then the stripper, and finally the brightner? Or should it be done in a different order? Also, can I do each step on separate days or it has to be done all in one day? Thank you

    No need for the cleaner when using the stripper. Apply the brightener the same day, right after the stripping is done.

    Yesterday I was in the process of cleaning my deck (1 year old, never been stained), we were about 75% done when the weather unexpectedly opened up. I did not have time to apply the brightener and today I have a lot of fuzzies. If I re-clean the deck in three days then apply the brightener would that solve that problem or will we need to sand the entire deck (25x30)?

    This can happen when removing a heavy layer of oxidized wood cells from a deck that has never been stained. Proceed with the cleaning and brightening. If you still have fuzzies then you can rent a floor buffer and remove then excess raised wood fibers with a sanding pad.

    The redwood deck is 20 years old. It was sanded and refinished two years ago. It is exposed to direct sun and has some areas of wear( weathered grey looking). What do you recommend for hand cleaning and if practical refinishing?

    Prep first with the Restore A deck Kits. this will have both the cleaner and the brightener to restore the wood. Stain with Armstrong Clark or TWP/

    I am in the process of installing new cedar deck boards. What process and timeline do you recommend for cleaning and sealing/staining the new wood?

    This varies based on the stain you will be using. Do you happen to know which stain you will be using?

    I have a 10 year old deck that has some wear and had significant mildew/grime buildup. We applied Defy epoxy uv sealer 9 years ago. We have replaced damaged boards, power washed it clean and plan on sanding. 1) is the cleaner and brightener step needed. 2) if yes, would you sand before or after the cleaning step?
    Thanks

    Sand first then apply the cleaner and brightener to finish the prep after. It will help the new stain penetrate better.

    I have a deck built out of ironwood (ipe).it has small circular oxidation stains from metal deck furniture. Will your product remove them?

    That is rust. The brightener may help remove this but it depends on how deep into the grain it is.

    Mike Nguyen:
    How often do you recommend cleaning the deck with restore-a-deck cleaner? Do you only use this when you plan to restain? Or can you do this on a yearly basis to get rid of mold and mildew?

    You can use at full strenght to prep for restaining. For general cleaning you should dilute product down to 2-3 oz per gallon of water.

    I purchased the Restore-A-Deck cleaner and brightener kit to use on a 14 yr old deck that had never been treated and the results were amazing. I highly recommend this to anyone.
