This fully organic and 100% Biodegradable product will brighten your deck back to a beautiful near-new appearance. It can even correct discolouration that has occurred as a result of previous cleaning or staining.
Ultimate Citric Brightener works well on it's own as a maintenance cleaner for wood and composite decks, powerfully removing dirt, grime, mold and tannin stains. It will not harm or remove any pre-existing oil or deck stain within the wood.
For a very deep clean and restoration of existing wood decks, or to prep before oiling or reoiling a deck, we highly recommend preceding Ultimate Citric Brightener with either Ultimate Deck Cleaner or Ultimate Deck Stripper for Oil Based Coatings.
This two-step process offers by far the best deep cleaning on the market today for restoring wood decks back to their original brilliance. It provides the ideal prep clean prior to staining/oiling or restaining/reoiling your deck. In addition to punching out the natural beauty of the wood, Ultimate Citric Brightener will Ph-neutralize any residual Cleaner/Stripper to create the ideal Ph level for stain uptake and retention, thereby maximizing your investment in a quality stain.
Most deck oils and stains will highlight the natural look of what they are applied to (like wetting a rock), so the better you can get your wood looking before staining/oiling, the more beautiful it will look after application.
Each package contains enough product to brighten and neutralize about 400 square feet of wood surface. Please note that on many decks the railings and steps may contain as much wood surface area as the actual walking surface.
Ultimate Citric Brightener works best when applied within 2-3 days of cleaning with Ultimate Wood Cleaner or Ultimate Stripper for Oil Based Coatings. It can be applied with a pressure washer (as the chemical additive), pump-up garden sprayer, or roller/brush.
