Essential Deck Cleaner
POWERFUL OUTDOOR CLEANER FOR DECKING AREAS THAT RE-INVIGORATES DULL, GRIME COVERED WOOD
ESSENTIAL DECK CLEANER is a high-performance cleaner specially formulated for cleaning areas of wooden decking. It is also suitable for cleaning other outdoor hard surfaces including artificial decking and garden furniture. Simply apply and leave for 2 hours and then wash off. It will quickly remove layers of dirt and grime as well as slippery green algae, lichen and black spot, even if the decking has been left unmaintained for long periods.
Unlike acid based cleaners the alkaline based solution will not damage wooden decking. Apply neat on areas of heavy surface contamination, or dilute 1:1 for less dirty areas.
Essential Deck Cleaner is a powerful and effective deck cleaner. It will remove layers of dirt, grime and lichen from decking and garden furniture within 2 – 4 hours.
HOW TO APPLY:
- Before use, remove any loose debris from the decking area and ensure you have adequate personal protection; i.e gloves, suitable protective eye-wear, face mask & clothing.
- Essential Deck Cleaner is to be used neat or diluted 1:1 with clean water – always perform a small test area to determine suitable dilution rate and dwell time. Carefully transfer the cleaning fluid from the bottle to a pump sprayer or watering can. If these containers are not available then cleaning fluid can be used directly from the bucket. Apply generously.
- The cleaning fluid needs to be left on the surface for at least an hour, during that time the surface must not be allowed to dry out. If necessary mist with additional Essential Deck Cleaner or with clean water to prevent the decking from drying. Work the area(s) of staining with a brush, if necessary, but ensure the surface remains wet at all times.
Leave for at least two hours.
- After at least two hours dwell time, the treated area should be washed down with clean water first to neutralise the cleaner before then power washing off for perfect results. Please note the cleaning fluid can harm or possibly kill vegetation so try to avoid washing off onto garden or lawn grass. If this unavoidable then rinse with plenty of clean water to dilute the Essential deck Cleaner.
- In areas of heavy soiling and engrained dirt it may be necessary to extend the dwell time of Essential Deck Cleaner to up to 4 hours or overnight where necessary, before power washing off. To achieve perfect results on aged, stubborn black/white lichen spots, test a small area to ascertain the required dwell time necessary to remove the marks – then follow the instructions above. Two to three applications may be needed.
Please Note: Essential Deck Cleaner contains a chlorine type agent as an active ingredient and will stain fabrics and sensitive materials. Take special care to avoid contact with fabrics & tarmac during application. The fluid might cause slight lightening of some surfaces – always try product on-site in an inconspicuous area prior to use.
Up to 50m² per 5L when diluted 1:1.
