Deck and Wood Cleaner

Prepare Lumber for Stain and Restore Natural Wood Color

Wood and Deck Cleaner is used primarily to remove contaminants like mold, oxidation / graying, algae, dirt and deteriorating failed finish from the boards of a deck. This process also serves as a preparation for re-oiling and applying wood oil finishes to help restore the natural wood color and grain patterns.

Deck and Wood Cleaner Part 1 from DeckWise is a concentrated powder used with water to create a wood cleaning solution. Each 16oz container will make up to five gallons of solution, however tougher jobs may require a more concentrated mixture so the amount and coverage may be lower. Deck and Wood cleaning powder is formulated specially to cleanse exterior hardwood decks, wood fences, terraces, hardwood siding, deck railings, patios, benches, chairs, and other outdoor wood items.

Deck and Wood Cleaner is Eco Friendly, as it is an oxygenated hardwood cleaner that contains the active ingredient Sodium Percarbonate. This is actually a registered compound by the Environmental Protection Agency for mildew and mold removing. Once you follow the guidelines on the Wood Cleaner Part 1 label, the product is safe to use. It will not harm your wood, plants, or grass, as they are bio-degradable.

How to Apply Hardwood Cleaner and Brightener:

Printable Application Guide

  • Step 1: Sweep and clean dirt and debris from wood surface
    Before staining or oiling wood decks and other wood items, always clean surfaces and gaps with a broom or brush. Once debris is eliminated, the process of cleaning and brightening can begin.
  • Step 2: Thoroughly rinse wood and keep wet
    After all debris and dirt are removed from your deck or wooden item, rinse thoroughly. It is important to not let water stand or pool on the wooden surface. To insure this, sweep or brush excess water from deck or wood item.
  • Step 3: Mix 1/3rd cup of Cleaner Part 1 with 1 gallon hot water
    Measure out 1/3rd cup of Cleaner Part 1. Mix with one gallon of hot water thoroughly. For optimal results, make sure all particles are dissolved before applying to wood or deck. Allow to soak up to 15 minutes keeping the wood wet.
  • Step 4: Thoroughly scrub wood with Cleaner Part 1, then rinse
    Apply generous amount of Cleaner Part 1 with bristle brush to create suds. Use a long handled brush for decking, and a handheld for smaller items. Scrub with the grain of the wood to loosen deep dirt particles. Rinse thoroughly.
  • Step 5: Mix 1/3rd cup of Brightener Part 2 with 1 gallon hot water
    Dilute 1/3rd cup of Brightener Part 2 with one gallon of hot water for the second step. Brightener particles should also be diluted as much as possible before use.
  • Step 6: Scrub wood with Brightener Part 2, rinse and let dry
    Repeat Step 4; Scrub a plentiful amount of Brightener Part 2 with a brush into a lather going with the wood grain. Rinse well and let decking dry thoroughly before applying stain or oil finish.
  • Step 7: Once deck is dry, apply oil finish or stain
    Now that your deck or wood item is cleaned and brightened, itís time to apply a finish. We recommend Ipe Oil Hardwood Deck Finish as an oil-based finish for natural hardwoods.
