Cleaning solid stained porch

noppenbdNovember 3, 2011

Hi all,

I have a T&G porch that was installed and stained using Sherwin Williams solid acrylic Deckscapes stain, about 5 years ago. The finish is intact, but has some areas that need cleaning (from leaves staining, etc). Water still beads up on the surface, so I think the finish is ok. Is there a way to clean this surface without taking the finish off? Thanks!

I just cleaned my deck with oxygen bleech before sealing it. You could also try some laundry detergent, hot water, a brush and a hose. If it were me I would add a little bleech to the detergent to kill anything growing.
