Wood Deck HELP!!!


New member
Hi Folks,

I power washed a PT deck that has not been stained and used the F-18 Max for the very first time. The stuff worked great getting the mildew and years of dirt off, BUT when it started drying I noticed a white chalky film on the wood, I tried neutralizing it with water but it was not coming off. I was going to use the F-8 Ox Brite on it but was afraid that was going to make it worse.

Can anyone explain why this happened, was it the product that made it chalky? And if so how do I get it off?

yes use the ox brite. follow the instructions on the label. first rinse, then apply.did you wet the wood down before you applied the stripper?
