    Our log home was pressure washed and treated with TWP 8 years ago by a professional. Two years ago I hired someone to pressure wash and treat the sunny side of the house that was faded. He treated with Thompsons Waterseal and that side is already faded. I decided to take on the project myself and use TWP. IF I pressure wash can I treat over the Thompsons with TWP1500?

    Areas on the shady side have some mold, but the washer alone took it off. the sunny side needs something for greying.

    Because we are waiting for our cypress fence to weather properly before staining with twp, black mold is now plaguing the cypress. What do you suggest for us to use to get rid of the black mold? We will probably have to do this repeatedly to get rid of the mold due to the unusually rainy summer we are having in Georgia.

    Lisa, use the kit first then lightly sand if needed when done. Rinse the deck well with water after the sanding.

    Yellow Cedar used 9 years ago, never stained, pressure washed 1 time. outside very gray and inside roof area and sides slightly. after pressure washing did have some of the "fuzzy" stuff on wood. Considering purchasing the kit to clean and brighten the wood, where the wood got fuzzy should that be sanded first and then clean and brighten? should it brighten back to close to the natural wood color?

    Tonya, if the deck was left alone for 1.5 years then you must remove the heavily gray oxidized wood cells. This is what is causing the fuzz when using the cleaners and there is no way around it.

    Is the Restore a Deck cleaning system suitable for cleaning/prepping a TWP 100 stained deck that is faded but otherwise sound before re-coating with TWP 100?

    I have a 1 1/2 year old deck that I am trying to clean and stain. It is Cox Ecolife KDAT wood. I have tried 5 different deck cleaners from home improvement stores and they all cause my deck to become fuzzy. I am rinsing with a garden hose not a pressure washer. Do you know if the Restore
    -A-Deck will cause the wood to fuzz? I don't want to have to sand the whole deck after it is cleaned to remove the fuzz or hairy deck. I plan to have sealed with TWP 100.

    Replacing 4 boards on pressure treated deck. Should I use restore after the boards are replaced? Should I get unpressure treated boards instead. Do I need to wait months before I use TWP after using restore for the old and new wood

    TWP does not fill cracks. Wood fillers and caulk will not work on outside decking and they cannot be stained with TWP products.

    Do TWP 100 or 1500 fill cracks and prevent further damage and if yes, up to what size cracks.
    What would be best to fill these cracks if repair is needed before using TWP products (caulk, wood filler, etc).

    1. Either is fine
    2. No they differ between series
    3. Apply with pump sprayer then lightly pressure wash off.

    I have a few questions

    1) What's the better stain for new pressure treated deck, TWP100 or 1500?

    2) are honeytone and cedartone colors for TWP 100 and 1500 the same?

    3)What's the best way (most effective)and quikest to clean spindles to remove mill haze using the Gimini cleaning kit? Do you have to use brush to remove the mill haze or just spray and rinse?

    Mildew will not permanently stain the wood. It would just leave it alone and remove it when it is time to stain the deck.

    I am letting my new douglas fir railings weather prior to applying TWP 1500. We have had a wet early summer in new England and my wood is starting to mildew. How should I clean mildew off wood while I wait for it to weather properly. I do not want the mildew to stain.

    Kdee, when you let the wood gray for a year you are basically oxidizing the top layer of wood cells. The longer you let the wood sit, the greater the amount of wood cells will be removed during the cleaning. This is what causes the "furring". Best to smooth down with a buffing machine and buffing pads. These come in different grits like paper. Very easy to do. A 400 sq. foot floor will can be done in 20 minutes or less. No need to wash down again. 2 light coats wet on wet would be best.

    I just completed the two step process and I have area with fibers. Do I have to sand down the fibers? If so, do I need to wash the deck again with the brightener or just use water? If I wash it down again, do I need to wait the two days before starting the staining? The stain will be applied to a new deck (12 months old), how many coats do I need?

    Dan, not sure. Never seen a "chalky residue" It could be some of the stripper or some old stain. Rinse well and brighten.

    I used the stripper and it appears to have left a white chalky looking substance on the cedar wood. Is this normal? Will the brighter take care of this? Or is this left over stripper that hasn't been removed. I used a power washer so nothing should of been left behind. Please advise.
