Defy Oxygen Bleach Wood Deck Cleaner
Defy Wood Cleaner has the best deck cleaner ratings compared to most chlorine bleach deck cleaners. This oxygen bleach wood deck cleaning solution is highly effective at removing dirt, grime, mold, algae, and weathered graying from wood surfaces. Defy Wood Cleaner is a safe, powdered, oxygen bleach concentrate that is mixed with water to safely clean and restore the natural beauty of exterior wood. Unlike chlorine bleach based cleaners, this oxygen bleach wood deck cleaning system is environmentally safe and biodegradable and will not harm wood fibers, pets, grass or most plants. Using a chlorine bleach will not only harm the wood as well as the vegetation surrounding the deck, but it doesn?t actually clean or remove any stains, it just bleaches them out. 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.

  • Restores the natural beauty of wood
  • Contains no acid or chlorine bleach
  • Safe for plants and animals
  • Biodegradable
  • Removes graying
  • Helps stains penetrate

Wood Deck Cleaning process
Even new wood needs cleaning to remove mill scale, making the surface more porous to easily absorb deck stains. Defy Wood Cleaner is part of a 3 step system to maintain your deck and keep it looking like new. The 3 steps are:

  1. Clean or strip using Defy Wood Cleaner or Defy Exterior Stain Stripper
  2. Brighten using Defy Wood Brightener
  3. Apply Defy water repellent wood stains

re: k
I would use the Defy Wood Cleaner to prep and just apply one coat of the defy Extreme Stain to the horizontals. You do not have to neutralize when doing a maintenance coat but it would not hurt either.
Last spring, 2011, I stripped, neutralized and stained my deck. The stain I used was Defy Extreme semi-transparen t light walnut. I was very pleased with the overall result.
(I live in the woods in Pennsylvania and you recommended Defy Extreme semi.)
This year, I want to clean some grime and light mildew and re-stain only the horizontal surfaces of the deck, since the verticals look great. Which cleaner should I use? Following the cleaning, would I need to neutralize? Lastly, should I do one or two coats with the Defy semi?
It is a sodium per carbonate deck cleaner. It was designed for cleaning all exterior wood. Main purpose is to remove dirt, grime, grayness, mold, and mold. It is sprayed on with a pump up sprayer. You should let dwell for 10-15 minutes, then scrub or lightly power wash off.
