pressure = fuzzy even with pro? and they used bleach
i have peeling solid light grey stain on a pressure treated deck that the previous owner applied. I decided not to try to strip it since it was taking way too many chemicals. I hope to be able to use a darker solid stain over it & probably replace the top boards in several years. I decided to pressure wash the deck to get loose stain & dirt off. it was not moldy/mildewed as far as i could tell.
I had read that in a novice's hands, a pressure washer can cause fuzz on the wood, so i hired a company who did the wash yesterday. there is fuzz on the spindles and some of the tops of the railings. is this normal from a professional job as well?
also, they told me over the phone that they use a "mildew cleaner" that wouldn't harm my pet or plants. once i got home i could tell it had been bleach. isn't that a no-no in that it harms the wood?
I want to know how much i should complain, or how justified my frustration is.
