When you use DEFY Wood Cleaner, you can actually see it work as it foams up and penetrates down to the pores, giving your deck a thorough cleaning that a chlorine bleach deck cleaner could never hope to accomplish.
Even new wood needs to be cleaned to remove mill scale in order to make the surface more porous to easily absorb deck stains. DEFY Wood Cleaner is part of a three-step system to maintain your deck and keep it looking like new. The three steps are:
- Clean or strip using DEFY Wood Cleaner or DEFY Exterior Stain Stripper
- Brighten and neutralize using DEFY Wood Brightener
- Apply DEFY deck stains
DEFY Wood Cleaner is a powdered concentrate sold in 2.25 lb. and 10 lb. recyclable containers. A 2.25 lb. container of DEFY oxygen bleach wood deck cleaner makes six gallons of solution and will clean approximately 600-1,200 total square feet (or 100-200 square feet per gallon). DEFY Wood Cleaner is also an excellent cleaner for vinyl and aluminum siding.
