Make sure that your deck is clean. Give it a quick sweep to remove visible dust and debris.
Using a garden hose, spray down your deck.
Apply BEHR PREMIUM® All-in-One Wood Cleaner with a pump sprayer.
Wait 15 minutes, then scrub your deck clean in the direction of the grain with a stiff bristle brush. You may notice some bubbles.
Rinse the deck thoroughly.
Allow your deck to completely dry before you begin staining. This may take about 24 hours.
TIP: If you notice loose wood fibers, then lightly sand wood with medium-grit sandpaper. Sweep away dust before applying stain.
Using a stain pad, apply the stain evenly in the direction of the grain, two or three boards at a time, moving from end to end. Continue to the exposed ends.
Allow the stain to dry for one to two hours before applying second coat.
