|General Dirt and Debris: The affected area should be sprayed off with a hose to remove surface debris. Use warm soapy water and a soft bristle brush to remove dirt and debris from the embossing pattern |
Chalk Lines: High permanence chalk lines may discolor the surface. Use only Irwin Strait-line dust off marking chalk (purple) available at irwin.com
Tannins Due to Debris: Remove all debris from deck using a hose or broom. Once the deck surface is dry apply a “deck brightener” to the deck as directed by the manufacturer. Deck brighteners contain Oxalic acid which will remove tannins.

Oil/Grease/Food: All food spills should be removed as soon as possible. The surface must be cleaned
within seven days to maintain the stain warranty. To remove, spray off with a hose and use warm, soapy water and a soft bristle brush to remove spills from embossing pattern.
