    Deck looks fine I just want to clean it. What should I use? I used your TWP 1500 on it.

    Soapy dish soap and a very soft car wash brush to remove dirt only.

    On a ~5 months old deck with no greying, is it necessary to use a pressure washer after appying Restore A Deck? Or do i even need to scrub?

    You can lightly pressure wash to remove the oxidized wood cells or you can heavy scrub and rinse well.

    MY condo association is wanting to seal our 280' beach walkover that was installed last year. The walkover goes over protected plants (sea oats) and tortoises. Is there any danger of the Restore a Deck Cleaner, the TWP 100 and the TWP Stripper to plants or animals? This is in FL where is frequently rains in the afternoon. How many days of dry weather is needed to ensure the product drys? Can TWP be applied with a roller? total sq is 3600+- with the rails and stairs. Also can you please send me the SDS for the above products? Thank you for the information

    TWP should not get on plants or animals while wet. You will need to cover. The Gemini Kit should be fine. Best to apply the TWP with a deck stain pad. Rollers are not as effective for applying evenly. Dries typically in 24-48 hours at most. It can take a rain 12 hours after applying.

    I know the cleaner and brightener say to wait 48 hours after used before you stain. But is there a maximum time? IOW can I clean and brighten one weekend and then stain the next or is that too long in between? What about 2 weeks in between?
    Thanks.

    2 weeks after prep is the max you should wait.

    The contractor that stained our deck (used TWP) got some on our vinyl siding. They were able to get it off of floor level siding by detaching the siding and working it with Goof Off. Stain on the wall of the house where it meets the deck is still there. The siding is somewhat textured and the stain has settled into the recesses. Nothing we have tried is getting it off. Any ideas?

    Water based graffiti remover from you local paint store.

    pcarriere:
    Hi, I need to put some stain on my cedar siding because some areas start to have bare wood exposed. The stain used before was TWP 1500. How do I prep the surface without removing old stain, I just want to add on it. On another side of the house, mildew need to be remove, will the stain be remove as well? Is this a different prep than siding that just need to add stain?
    >Thanks

    Siding is the same prep as decking. Best to use the Gemini Restore Kit for prep and pressure washing. See here for more info on our help site: http://www.twpstainhelp.com/tips/prepping-for-twp-stains/maintaining-twp/

    This happens when you are moving a heavy layer of oxidized wood cells. Typically on decks that are left unstained for 1+ years. Yes you can lightly sand or buff to remove the fuzzies, then brighten.[/quote]
    What grit sandpaper would you suggest[/quote]
    60-80 grit at most.[/quote]
    I noticed on cleaning/stripping/brightening how-to the brightener section said to apply immediately after cleaning and "do not let the wood dry". I had to let it dry so I could sand away the fuzz. Should I wet the deck before adding the brightener? It's a large deck, 20x30 +stairs and rails, should I brighten in sections. and keep it damp the same way I did for the cleaner?

    Just lightly wet the deck and brighten all at once.

    I have used the product on my year old cedar deck, Question. when I applied the product I let it sit for the 15 minutes and then power washed it and wheni would step on it it would leave my boot print in wood so I applied again and used a brush and the stuff came off like snot. then power washed again and did it again and then it seemed the wood was clean. Is this the way it is suppose to work??? I am very stiff today after that workout.

    it sounds like you are removing a heavy layer of oxidized wood cells. It looks like pulp. Just pressure was and rinse well. It should come very clean.
