X-180 Weathered Wood Restorer™ was developed because exterior wood surfaces, including decks and shake roofs, become discolored from dirt and general weathering. X-180 Weathered Wood Restorer™ counteracts the weathering process by eliminating years of fungus and discoloration from cedar, redwood, and other types of wood. It cleans and restores wood surfaces back to the appearance of new lumber.
Using high pressure water alone to clean wood will create damage to wood fibers as well as, uneven stop and start marks. Water alone will not remove the fungus growth in the fibers.
CAUTION: Household bleaching solutions (namely Sodium Hypochlorite) harm the environment, and will not produce a new natural wood color. Using bleach to clean wood may produce a chemical reaction to the outer wood fiber forming a film, causing future adherence and penetration of stains and paints to fail and separate. X-180 Weathered Wood Restorer™ is a biodegradable blend of oxalic and inorganic acids combined with a nonionic surfactant.
