Frequently asked questions about deck cleaner

  1. What is decking cleaner made of?

    Decking cleaners generally contain alcohol ethoxylate, a common surfactant that strips decking oil, stain, and paint from wooden surfaces.

  2. How to use decking cleaner?

    To clean decking, you’ll need a stiff brush, decking cleaner, gloves, a paint brush or roller, and a pressure washer. Follow these steps to remove decking stain completely:

    • Wait for a few clear days without rain – temperatures of between 10°C and 25°C are also preferable.
    • Put your gloves on, shake the cleaning solution, pour it out into a plastic container, then stir it through using a paint brush.
    • Split the decking up into sections of three boards that you can cover with cleaner in under 10 minutes; this is important because you can’t walk on a section of decking with product on it.
    • Apply the cleaning solution to the first of these sections in the same way as you paint walls, using long, even strokes and remembering not to walk on a section that has cleaner on it.
    • Coat the remaining sections of the decking, making sure that you leave a strip for you to walk on
    • Apply another coat to the decking roughly an hour after the first coat went on.
    • An hour later, test out a patch with a scrubbing brush – ensure that the stain has been removed effectively.
    • If the stain has not come off completely, apply an extra coat all over.
    • Wait for an hour and then scrub the entire deck with your scrubbing brush, finishing off with a pressure wash.
