I have to agree with Celeste. All we really end up doing is helping these videos and websites rank higher and generate more traffic. Stick here for advice and techniques from professionals. Bob Villa, Tim Carter and all of that ilk actually hurt our industry by promoting poor methods of cleaning.
No, I'm not going to delete the thread. Your intentions were good. If you truly want to know they way the majority of wood professionals clean and prep wood, there are plenty here that can guide you. I also own a DIY company that sells deck restoration cleaners and stains. I don't want to list the URL here but I will PM you the link. My site has details on the approach most of us use. There are guys/gals that use bleach but there are pitfalls to using it if you do not know what you are doing.
Nah. We can move forward from here. Thanks, Marko!
