Rejuvenate the rich color and distinct wood grain patterns and restore the all-natural lavish color before properly refinishing.

When you follow the instructions on the Deck and Wood Cleaner label, the product is safe to use and will not damage wood, vegetation or lawn and is bio-degradable. Do not use a power washer on hardwood lumber which could leave scars and raise the wood grain. Always scrub with a non-metal brush. Wood cleansers can easily increase the pH level of lumber.
