Algae Stains on Decks

What You'll Need:


Add the Stain Solver powder to the warm water. Stir until completely dissolved. Use to clean black or green algae from stained decks. Apply solution liberally with the pump sprayer to a cool deck surface on a cloudy day or in the shade. Let soak for 20 minutes, never allowing the solution to evaporate. Scrub with a push broom. Rinse the clean deck off with a garden hose. Test on a small area to see how easy it is to use before attempting large areas. Decks wet with this solution are slippery and very dangerous. Be extremely careful so as not to fall.
