Prep is one of the most important factors in getting the most out of your deck stain. Oxygenated bleach wood cleaners are great at cleaning dirt, mold, mildew, as well as opening up the pores of your wood. This is important because opening the pores will allow the wood to absorb more wood stain, which means it will bond better and last longer. Using a wood brightener is an essential, but often overlooked step. The wood cleaner causes the wood to have a highly alkaline ph level, so one of the purposes of the wood brightener is to balance the ph back to a neutral level. Wood stains that are applied to highly alkaline surfaces can fail. Additionally, the wood brightener will brighten the wood so that it looks new again. So follow both steps to get the most out of your deck stain.
