Once your concrete or wood surface has been resurfaced, you will want to keep it looking great year after year. 

Along with checking for damaged wood, you should wash the surface once or twice a year with a premium deck cleaner. 

Olympic Premium Deck Cleaner is applied at full strength with a deck care sprayer or a plastic pump-style garden sprayer and hose.

  • Always test a small, hidden area, rinse and let dry before using this product.

  • Spray the affected area liberally and allow to stand for five to 10 minutes. No scrubbing necessary.

  • Thoroughly rinse treated surface and surrounding areas with water to neutralize cleaning action.

For wood that was previously stained, dark cedar and redwood, we recommend Olympic Premium Deck Brightener & Wash. It is a gentler cleaner for these more sensitive surfaces.
