    I recently scrubbed with deck brush and power washed after cleaner and then brightened. I did two rounds of the cleaner brightner, and there is still some whitning of the wood around the knots of the wood and some white streaking it is pretty faint though the deck looks a lot better. Can I stain the deck now I am hoping or do I need to order more product bc Iam out of it now. I don’t know if anymore elbow grease will get this faint whiting out of the wood. I want to stain and get the project over but Iam also worried It could show in the stain. Or is this normal?

      Knots are typically lighter in color. Not a big deal. Go ahead and stain. Even after staining knots can still be lighter in color. Nothing you can do about this as it is the grain of the wood.

    I have a new wood deck never stained that is 2 years old and was grey in color. I researched and found your product, I read the label of cleaner and see that some of the wood grain can raise and cause fibers I suppose is what that mean??. But is doesn’t look right iN my final result. I bought a low pressured, pressure washer specifically for the job bc my heavy duty gas powered pressure washer has no low setting and I didnt want any discrepancies on hand with it Chewing up the wood . FYI: The washer I purchased is only 1400 psi... And I pressure washed at least 10-12 inches away.

    So my question is, what’s normal raised wood grain that this product causes?

    It looks like I pressure washed close up with a gas powered machine, which I did not! I was thoroughly careful and I pressure wash many times a year so I’m fairy acclimated, this is not my first rodeo. It’s looks bad. Fuzzy little hairs all over my deck which was very smooth to begin with. I’m worried my stain will look like s*** without a sanding?

    Can you guys send a picture of what raised wood grain fibers is normal and acceptable?? I’m confused this is what the final product should look like. I’m unable to send a picture at the moment but maybe you could send me one that is acceptable so I could compare.

    oh and can I lightly sand the wood fibers off or will it hinder the efficacy of the cleaner and brighter?

    Thank you

      When you leave wood unstained for two years the wood will heavily oxidize or the top layer will turn gray. When you clean you have to remove this oxidation and the longer you let the wood sit unstained, the deeper the oxidation. The results you are seeing are from the removal of the oxidation and cannot be avoided as it has to come off. It is not a result of the cleaner or the pressure washer but a result of having too much oxidation from the wood sitting for 2 years. At this point, you should sand or buff off the raised wood fibers.

        Ok I understand that now thanks. So it’s fine to stain the deck after I sand
        the wood and blow it off? No need to clean and brighten again after I sand right? And what grit do you recommend? Thank you

          Brighten the wood after is best. 60-80 grit.

              To even it out and make the wood more porous, yes.

    I have a 30+ year old deck that I have power washed and stained every two years with Sherwin-Williams water-based stain. I plan on having my deck professionally power washed and then proceeding with your products. My question is ,do I need to purchase the stripper as well or are just the cleaner and brightener sufficient after having it power washed?

    little add on the details: I used a 1600 psi water jet to rince off the stripper and I went over all the railing and spindle with the jet as well. Then I sanded everything.

    I have a 16x16 soft wood deck. The floor is about 30year old and the railing and spindle are 2 year old ( I used brown pressured treated wood). The floor had an old opaque coating that was almost all gone, I have used somt techniseal stripper ( don't know if you have this in the states) and I just spent 1 full day with a commercial grade floor orbital sander going from 24 grit to 80 grit to get rid of some nasty cracks dans kept the old stain in. The railing and spindles was never stained and I just sanded it down today.My next step was to use a cleaner and brightner that I bought with my stripper at the local store( it is from thompson waterseal). Right now I am making researches over the internet to find the best stain and I found your product. My question is: If I go with a restore-a-deck semi-transparent stain, do I still need to use a the cleaner and brightner? do I need to use the restore-a-deck one or can I use the Thompson water seal that I already purchase. Can you kindly explain why. Thx!!

      If you use the RAD stain then you need the RAD prep products to ensure the stain soaks in correctly. Thompsons is not a decent prep product for our stain. It could create issues.

    I have watched many videos on restraining a deck. I understand I will sand it, then use a restore a deck product. What product do I need to use when the deck had a previous stain? We recently purchased the house so I am unsure the last time the deck was stained or what type of stain was used. Thanks for your help.

    We used step 1 & 2 to prep for stain. The deck looks great! There are some areas with more of these white fuzzies-they are soft, nothing seems to be splintery. Is this the normal grain raising that’s expected or did we do something wrong to cause it? I do notice more of it on areas we did the first day, that had more weathering and algae on them, but we also had some issues with the sprayer we were using for the brightener. So wanted to find out if it could be caused from a lack of neutralizer or something like that or if that’s normal and we’re okay to proceed with staining?
    thanks!

      That happens from the oxidation of the wood (graying). It is normal for gray wood to do this when prepping as the oxidation ahs to come off.
      • We will reply to your comment shortly
        Kaely Mckee · 03/30/2020
        Is it safe to stain over top of it now? Or does that mean that it needs to come off before staining and we need to do something else to it to get that off?

    I have a Timber Tech composite deck floor and a cedar railing with painted or powder coated uprights that was installed 5 months ago. I need to stain the railing only. Will your cleaner or brightener harm the composite deck or the metal spindles of the railing? Thanks,

    I have a deck that is fully skirted all the way around. It has 2 sections one about a foot elevated as an eating area. It is about 25 years old, in VG shape and has been properly maintained.

    I will have to sand down the railings, some more than others. I do plan on using an orbital belt sander on the decking. I plan on using your cleaner and brightener and then proceed to my sanding, and last applying the stain. Any suggestions to insure a good finish?

      If you sand, do this after the cleaner. Brighten after that. Stain last.

    Just placed my order! My question: do I need to have a pressure washer for the cleaner/brightener steps or can I manage sufficiently with the hose nozzle? My deck is new wood and has been in place for about 11 months with nothing done to it. Thanks!

      RAD Products · 06/01/2019
      Pressure will help to remove the oxidation that has accumulated. Hose nozzle will not be sufficient.

      Yes, that will help to remove the sand dust so the stain soaks in better.

    I installed pressure treated southern pine over three months ago. I am now ready to stain. Is it correct that I need to use both the cleaner and the brightener? And of all things a skunk sprayed one of my dogs and of course the oil from the skunk sprayed directly on the most visible part of my deck and now there are dark spots all over it. Do you think that both steps will help get rid of those spots? One more question? Do you have to use the brightener after the cleaner? I understand that the wood is darker after using the cleaner but what if I don't mind the end result coming out on the darker side after applying the stain? Thanks!
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 08/24/2018
      Yes, use both cleaner and brightener. Not sure if it will remove the skunk oil. I am thinking it will not since they could be deep in the wood grain. Yes, you have to brighten to neutralize the cleaner.

      Just one coat of stain.

    I am trying to establish if I should use your Stripper or your Cleaner on my deck. It presently has Sikkens Cetol SRD on it and I intend to use the same product again. There are some areas where the stain has somehow come off and you can see bare wood. I also have a part behind the BBQ that is slightly blackened with the heat. Pictures attached. Any help would be appreciated.

      It would be best to strip and brighten this so you have a more uniform appearance when you reapply.

    I have a 1 year old, unfinished, cedar ceiling over a brick paver patio. It is trimmed in the Trex siding so it is no exposed to the elements. I live in Northern Illinois and this past winter the ceiling did not get any snow or ice on it. It does seem to get some UV rays as the sun hits the patio mid-afternoon. Ceiling has darkened slightly over the past year and may have some very subtle gray streaks but can't really tell. Want to use your product. Do you think I need to use the brightener or just the cleaner in this case?

    I am using Restore-A-Deck cleaner and brightner. I know I need to wait at least 48 hours for the deck to dry before staing with TWP but what is the maximum amount of time I can wait before staining? Do I
    need to do anything if the deck drys after using cleaner and brightner and it rains before I get a chance to stain?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 06/26/2018
      Rain will harm the prep. Just wait for the rain water to dry for 48 hours if this happens. Try to stain withing 14 days of the prep.

    I have mold on a Perafin finished railings. (Apparently this is a familiar story!) If I want to remove the mold and also strip to remove the Perafin, so that I am able to apply semi transparent stain, do I start with the stripper or do I need to start with the cleaner?

    I am putting the finishing touches to a new wood 35'x12' 5/4 pine treated deck with a 15'x'4' walkway. You have been recommended by Deckstainhelp.com. I have several questions. 1. Do I have to wait before I can apply your stain? If so, how long? 2. How much of cleaner and brightener will I need. 3. How many gallons of stain will I need? 4. The deck is adjacent to a koi pond, how careful do I have to be about seepage of cleaner and brightener into the water? Thank you..

    Hi, I've been using the Olympic Cedertone stain for 15 years. Last year I re-stained but the formula has been changed to a water based formula. While the vertical pieces look fine, the top deck boards and floor boards are really faded bad. I am thinking of using the RAD cleaner and brighter products then using the TWP-100 Cedertone product. Will this combination work or will I have to strip also before applying the stain?

      You will need to remove all the previous stain first so the stripper is the correct prep.

    I want to clean & brighten my Redwood deck boards but don't want to bleach or affect the pressure treated framing.

    Do I need to cover the treated wood? Will it bleach or discolor the brown pressure treated wood?


    Thank you! (This pic is when the deck was new, the redwood doesn't look this clean anymore)

    The deck is off the second story of the house. Under the deck is a garden with tomato plants, dahlias, etc. What are the ingredients in your cleaner and restore product? I want to make sure they don't harm the plants, or if the vegetables will be safe to eat.

    Thanks!
