New Garapa Deck Discolored

mclellan_aJune 28, 2009

I had a new garapa deck installed about a month back. At the same time I had my basement refinished and the plasterer tracked plaster dust all over the deck. Now the deck is black. I tried cleaning it with DeckMaster cleaner but that turned it green. Any help on how to fix this would be very appreciated.

I sanded a small section but it "ripped" up the garapa and took a very long time for a 1 foot area.

Most " cleaners " need an oxalic acid wash to work. J.

i have bought wood cleaning chemicals from these folks and they worked beautifully:

their prices are per case, they also sell per bottle. Get the cleaner and neutralizer as John said.

I have heard good things from these folks:

Good luck
