A fresh application of wood stain requires a clean surface to really maximize its beauty and protection. After all, stain is a topical application. You want to make sure that it applies evenly and properly to the wood surface you want to protect.
Here's a quick guide that shows you how to quickly clean your wood deck in an effort to ensure a beautiful and lasting stain application.
Use more than water to clean your wood deck
Cleaning your deck is easy, but you need the right product. Before you stain, try Olympic Premium Deck Cleaner to deep clean your deck or Olympic Premium Deck Brightener and Wash for bare cedar and redwood. Water is a great start for removing dirt and grime from your deck, but you need to use a deck cleaner to remove stains caused by dirt, mold, mildew and algae to help ensure long-lasting, beautiful stain results. Our Premium Deck Cleaner removes 4X more dirt than water alone!
Clean with an affordable solution
A properly cleaned deck is a necessary first step towards staining, protecting and beautifying your wood. Plus, using the right product at the beginning of your process can save you time and money in the long run. A powerful cleaner like our Premium Deck Cleaner costs around $10 per gallon!

Properly clean your deck for accurate color
Achieving a beautiful, vibrant color with fresh stain becomes more difficult if your stain is applied to dirty surfaces.

Use the proper deck cleaning products at the beginning of your staining process to enjoy beautifully colored results.
