Restore Your Deck with Penofin Pro Tech Brightener


Dull decks, like male pattern baldness, creep up over time. We can’t say much for the male pattern baldness, but fortunately for your deck, Penofin Pro Tech Brightener can restore brightness and beauty–even in decks that have been neglected.

We like Penofin because they make a safe, environmentally-friendly product that produces high quality results. Their brightener is no exception.

Penofin Pro Tech Brightener from Penofin Wood Finish.

Pro Tech Brightener is perfect for your deck if you need to:

  • Restore color in old, neglected wood that hasn’t been stained in a while. Neglected wood might be weathered, grayed, or is simply dull.
  • Clear up rust or water stains on the wood.
  • Remove tannin bleed. Tannin bleed occurs when a new piece of wood gets exposed to a lot of moisture and rain, the tannins can bleed up to surface and you get black, dark splotches on your wood.

Once you’ve picked up your supply of Pro Tech Brightener from DIY Home Center, just follow this simple seven step application process:

  1. Tape off structures with color (that you are not brightening) and metal surfaces to protect them from the brightener.
  2. Wet the perimeter on the outside of the deck to moisten the surrounding vegetation.
  3. Wet the deck surface.
  4. Mix two cups of Pro Tech Brightener with one gallon of water in a garden sprayer.
  5. Apply brightener to the moist deck surface.
  6. Let it set for 10-15 minutes, making sure that no areas dry out. If they do, moisten them again so the product does not dry on the deck.
  7. After 10-15 minutes, hose off the entire deck and wait 24-48 hours and then you’re ready to stain the deck.

With proper maintenance and quality products like Penofin, your hardwood deck can and will look great for years to come.

How To Clean A Deck With Penofin Pro Tech Cleaner


The hanging flower baskets on your deck are a nice touch, but every time you water the plants, water drips onto the deck and keeps the deck moist. Eventually an unsightly mildew spot forms, reminding you that it’s time to turn to Penofin Pro Tech Cleaner.

Pro Tech Cleaner can take care of more than mildew. In fact, it works wonders with removing mold and mildew (yes, there’s a difference) and grease and grime from the surface of your deck.

The good news is that it’s not hard to give your deck new life with Pro Tech Cleaner, just follow the seven steps below.

Cleaning Your Deck with Pro Tech Cleaner

  1. Wet the perimeter on the outside of the deck to moisten the surrounding vegetation.
  2. Wet the deck surface.
  3. Mix one to two cups of Pro Tech Cleaner with one gallon of water in a garden sprayer.
  4. Apply cleaner to the moist deck surface.
  5. Agitate the surface with a nylon brush or broom–work the product in.
  6. Let it set for 10-15 minutes, making sure that no areas dry out. If they do, moisten them again so the product does not dry on the deck.
  7. After 10-15 minutes, hose off the entire deck and wait 24-48 hours and then you’re ready to stain the deck–or use the Pro Tech Brightener to brighten the deck.

Here’s a tip: If you have some leftover cleaner, you can also use it to clean driveways and garage floors–just wet the surface and sprinkle Pro Tech Cleaner directly onto the wet surface. Agitate, and then let it sit for 15 minutes before spraying it off.

You can feel good when you choose Penofin. Not only are you getting a high quality product that delivers superior results, you’re using an environmentally-friendly product that’s safe to use around kids and pets.
