Power washing is better? by Chez Whillians

Didn't really do much, not sure if it made it easier but perhaps didn't leave it on long enough. Power washing was the best way to remove the algae.

Great stuff by Bryan Denny

The cleaner works and the preserve works. It doesn't peel. Have used the products before and will continue to use. Wood finishes direct offer a good service at a good price and I'll continue to use them as well. Thanks guys.

Great product by Wayne.

Turned our slippery and unloved wood deck back into an almost new-looking area. I don't think the previous owner did anything to maintain the deck since it was installed 9 years ago but after we treated it with the Barrettine Cleaner and washed and brushed it down it transformed it.

Very good by David RAilton

Brushed on left to soak in and rinsed. Removed years of moss from my fence, giving it a good base for fresh stain.

Easy to use The decking looks like new again by Tony Scott

I have used this product for the last 2 years on several areas of decking. Having previously used other brands this does as good a job at a fraction of the price.

Seemed to do the job by Daniel Waldman

I used this after cleaning decking with a pressure washer with a patio cleaning attachment, so can't comment on how it works alone on very dirty decking. It was more for peace of mind to make sure the wood was as clean as it could be before applying decking oil. Cheap enough and easy to use, so I'll probably use it again next time I tray the decking.
