How to Clean A Wooden Deck

Do’s and Don’ts of Deck Cleaning

Using a power washer, pressure washer, or any high pressure water requires an intimate knowledge of wood and the machine. Improper use of a pressure washer will damage the woods surface and/or make for an uneven appearance rendering the appearance of any stain or water repellant preservative (WRP) uneven.

Do: use a pressure washer if available. It makes the job a bit easier.
Don’t: rely on the water pressure to get the job done.

Do: Use a cleaning agent (like our ABR Deck and Siding Wash or X-180 Weathered Wood Restorer)
Don’t: Use harsh chemicals like bleach without diluting them with water and adding soap.

Do: Follow manufacturers instructions on the use of all cleaning products
Don’t: Sand your deck to clean or strip it unless absolutely necessary

Do: After your deck is clean and dry; apply a water repellant preservative.
