When removing a failed transparent wood or decks coating it is needed to use the Defy Stain Stripper. This will soften the old coating allowing easier removal.

Note: It is need not needed to do Step 1 Wood Deck Cleaning if you are using the Defy Stain Stripper.

*This process will work on the majority of transparent and semi-transparent stains. It will not be as effective on solid or opaque stains.

  1. Wet wood or deck down thoroughly with water. Take extra care to pre-rinse vegetation and house.
  2. Apply Defy Stain Stripper following manufacturer's directions. The stripper should dwell on the wood for 10-15 minutes. The wood will "darken" in color during this process. Makes sure that you mist the deck with water if it starts to dry. Use protective clothing, glasses, and gloves.
  3. Pressure Wash or Hand Scrub the wood to remove the old coating, dirt, graying, mold, mildew.
  4. When done washing, take your time to rinse the wood, home, vegetation, stripper suds, dirt and wood fibers.
  5. Use the Defy Wood Brightener to "brighten" the wood and neutralize the wood back to the proper pH balance. This should dwell on the wood for 5-15 minutes. Once done make sure to rinse the wood, home, vegetation, etc.
  6. Wood should dry for 48 hours prior to a Defy Stain application.

Quoting Duane Urbanski:
I have a deck that was done with Benjamin Moore Acrylic stain and was wondering if your stripper would take that off so we can use your stain?

The Arborcoat? No that will need to be sanded off.
