info buttonDesigned specifically for Exterior Wood and Composite Decking.

Restore-A-Deck cleaner is also available as a stand alone product. While we recommend using the cleaner as part of the two part R-A-D restoration system, decks that are not going to be sealed need not be pH balanced. In this instance, you can order just the cleaner portion of the kit.

This cleaner is also excellent for use as a concrete cleaner, patio furniture restorer or housewash. It will remove mold and mildew from concrete, brick or siding.

There is enough cleaner in a single 2 lb package to clean the average 25'x12' deck with rails and 3 steps. One jar is also enough for the average housewash or 750 square foot of walk or driveway.

Coverage is 600-800 sq.feet per container.

Restore-a-Deck Step 1 is a wood cleaner and preps stains for reapplication of a stain. It is not a stain stripper or remover of old stains. Please see Restore-A-Deck Stripper if you are trying to remove a semi-transaprent stain.

Available Sizes:
2 lb Container
Powder Concentrate:
1 Container  Makes 5 Gallons
Purpose:
Wood Deck Cleaner
Coverage Per Gallon:
100-200 sq. ft Per Gallon

    Stacy:
    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.

    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.

    Hi,
    Can I use the cleaner on a stained deck? I Stained my deck last year with TWP stain and want to put a second coat on this year. Should I use the RAD cleaner on the stained deck or just powerwash it good and apply a second coat?
    Thanks

    Thanks. Rain held off and I managed to apply a liberal coat of Woodrich TimberOil. TO requires 4-8 hours drying time and even allows for light rain within 30 minutes. The deck dried for 6 hours in the sun before the skies opened up but from what I can see it looks fine.

    Just completed cleaning and brightening my deck using the RAD kit. Now the weather forecast has changed and rain is on the way so now I have to hold off staining. Do I have to clean the deck again or is it okay to proceed with applying stain once everything is dry?

    Either way will work but slightly damp is easier for application.

    Does does my cedar deck need to be wet before applying RAD cleaner or just spray it on to the dry boards?

    Best to use a cleaner and brightener for prepping the new wood. The RAD kits will work. Make sure you follow the stain manufacturer's directions when it comes to staining new wood. Most want you to wait.

    My contractor will be completing the construction of our new red cedar deck. I was going to stain it but read online that even new cedar decks should be cleaned first. Is that really necessary? If so, what products of yours do you recommend? Can I just get by with the cleaner and then my stain?

    RAD Products · 06/21/2013
    Yes you should use the cleaner and brightener kit with the pressure washer for the prep of the wood.

    Ready to stain my deck. It's been about 5 years since that has been done. It has been power washed in the interim. Should a cleaning and brightening be done prior to re-staining? Slight mildew has built up in certain areas.

    You apply the brightener as soon as you are done with the stripper, while the wood is still wet.

    Do you need to wait any period of time after applying the RAD stain stripper before applying hte brightner? Or can you do it the same day one after the other.

    The cleaner should not remove the stain unless the stain has deteriorated. No need for the brightener this time.
