Restore-A-Deck Cleaner

 Back to: Deck Cleaners - Professional Grade

Designed specifically for Exterior Wood and Composite Decking.

Restore-A-Deck cleaner is also available as a stand-alone product. While we recommend using the cleaner as part of the two-part R-A-D restoration system, decks that are not going to be sealed need not be pH balanced. In this instance, you can order just the cleaner portion of the kit.

RAD cleaner is similar to Oxi-Clean but with some added professional strength to make the job easier for you.

This cleaner is also excellent for use as a concrete cleaner, patio furniture restorer or house wash. It will remove mold and mildew from concrete, brick or siding.

There is enough cleaner in a single 2 lb package to clean the average 25'x12' deck with rails and 3 steps. One jar is also enough for the average housewash or 750 square foot of walk or driveway.

    Last year I stained a cedar deck with TWP100 with one coat knowing I'd have to re-stain this year in Michigan. After the winter, there is some sun fading and wear of stain. I was told I would just have to clean and stain since I am reusing the TWP100. I cleaned the steps using Restore a Deck cleaner, letting it sit for 15 minutes and then using a scrub brush and followed with RAD brightener to neutralize. It stripped all stain (I thought it would just clean and remove any graying on the wear spots). I was just hoping to prepare the deck so it would soak up stain and remove any graying (some areas still bead) and then stain. What did I do wrong?

      You prepped it correctly. Go ahead and stain with two coats wet on wet.

        Thank you, curious why did the cleaner strip the stain? I thought only stripper would do that.

        Is there anything that can be done to prep wood just to get it to accept stain if doing every year? Also any tricks to avoiding the wear spots from steps to house?

          The cleaner will remove the stain if the stain was starting to deteriorate. It is also the proper way to prep when reapplying. Make sure it fully soaks in when applying and it should not wear.

            Thanks again, your answers are helpful. Perhaps I should not powerwash or vigorously scrub the cleaner and it wouldn't strip? Maybe just apply cleaner and quick brush to loosen dirt?

              It is fine if it comes up with a cleaner and pressure wash. This way it preps the wood optimally and is not an issue.

    Will I need more or extra cleaner to remove the grayed fibers of a hardwood like mahogany or alder?

    Is it safe to use on a deck over water?

    Prewet any siding and rinse when done would be best. It does not react with the vinyl but you do not want dirt and grime sticking to it if it splashes on it.

    I would prep with the Restore-A-Deck Kits prior to staining.

    I will be staining a new cedar deck (1 month old). Wood is not gray but some subtle dirt stains from construction does exist. I plan on staining with Armstrong Clark cedar tone transparent stain. I need a recommendation on a cleaner brand to prep the deck for staining. Do I even need a cleaner at all with new cedar wood? Does the cleaner brand need to be compatible with the stain brand?

    The Restore-A-Deck should remove the black mold.
