When it comes to building your deck, you want it to last a long time, and want the natural wood color to show. However, with time, wood decking gets dirty and loses its’ luster and natural hardwood appeal. DeckWise Wood Deck Cleaner (Part 1) and Brightener (Part 2) remove dirt and graying in preparation for re-oiling and applying finishes such as Ipe Oil. These concentrated powders are formulated specially to cleanse and brighten exterior wood decks, wood fences, patios, terraces, wood siding, benches, chairs, and other outdoor wood items.
Hardwood Cleaner - Part 1
It is a tough job to maintain your hardwood decking, exterior furniture and rain-screen siding looking new. Whenever it comes to the expense of your exotic decking and hardwood siding, you want it to last a lifetime. We need the all-natural hardwood color to show and in some cases even a gray patina appeal will be your choice (Hardwood ipe decking, cumaru, jatoba, massaranduba, tigerwood and garapa are the a few types of hardwood that can be restored following graying). Wooden structures and wood in general trap dirt, dust, airborne, pollen and pollutants. So when expensive exotic lumber is used to build your project, take the time to maintain or restore it with a quality hardwood cleaner. The general rule of thumb is to thoroughly clean your hardwood yearly, but doing it Spring and Fall is better.
Hardwood Brightener - Part 2
After DeckWise Wood Cleaner Part 1, which takes out dust and dirt from the wood’s surface, use DeckWise Wood Brightener Part 2. This takes away tannin stains from hardwoods which are vulnerable to extractive bleeding as well as stripping dirt, rust, grime, and fungi stains from solid wood surfaces. Woods such as cedar and redwood fall into that classification. Tannins tend to be naturally occurring in many woods and show up as a dark discoloration once the lumber has been subjected to moisture. The DeckWise Wood and Deck Brightener Part 2 is a powder concentrate sold in 16 oz. containers mixed 4:1 with water to brighten and restore the all-natural charm of your exterior hardwood decking and rain-screen siding. Also use on hardwood fences, railings and steps.
