Brightening Decks/Wood after Cleaning
When brightening Wood or Decks, use a Wood Deck Brightener. Not only will this "brighten" the wood, it will also neutralize the cleaner or stripper, ensuring that your deck stain will perform properly.
- Apply immediately after done cleaning/stripping the wood. Do not allow the wood to dry! Take extra care to pre-rinse vegetation.
- Apply Deck Brightener following manufacturer's directions. Most brighteners can be applied with a pump-up sprayer. The brightener should dwell on the wood for 5-15 minutes. Makes sure that you mist the deck with water if it starts to dry. Use protective clothing, glasses,and gloves. We sell environmentally friendly products but they can still cause a reaction to skin and eyes.
- When done take time to rinse the wood, home, vegetation, cleaner residue, grime, and wood fibers.
- Wood should dry for 48 hours prior to a TWP Stain application.
*Make sure that you follow all manufacturer's instructions
