Do not use any form of Chlorine Bleach as a deck cleaner, as it will damage all of the components of your wooden decks and is toxic to surrounding plantings. Chlorine bleach will also discolour the wood. Oxygen bleach cleaners are non-toxic – and clean wood beautifully. Oxygen bleach forms a froth on the deck and the millions of oxygen bubbles will deep clean the wood while you watch.
Carefully read the instructions detailed on any cleansing product’s label, to be sure that it is an appropriate product to apply to the materials used in your new deck construction.
