Have had a lot more requests lately to clean the gray from pressure treated decks. I don't have the time to stain these decks, and one of the reasons I don't have time, is the homeowners in this area are not willing to pay very well for staining services. I like the way percarbonate cleaners leave the wood a natural color vs the white color bleach leaves these decks. It wouldn't matter as much if I was doing a complete job, but I'm just cleaning and neutralizing .
I was by my chemical distributer last week and asked about sodium percarbonate availability, and they sold me a 50# bag for $55.00. My question is will straight sodium percarbonate do as good of a job cleaning decks as the mystery mixes venders are selling, or should I add anything to my mix? I am very fortunate to have a chemical supplier within 10 minutes from my house and they can get me most anything I need in bulk, where I don't have to pay for the fancy packaging. Thanks for your help in advance.
