How to Clean Decking Naturally Without Using a Pressure Washer

Wet weather can soon take it’s toll on your wooden deck. If you want to remove green algae from your deck and give it a new lease of life, a good clean with sodium percarbonate can really brighten and refresh the wood.

There are many deck cleaners and wood revivers on the market and they all do a good job. However there is a kinder, safer product out there which does just as good a job!

Why use Sodium Percarbonate to Remove Green Algae from your Deck?

Apart from being safe to use around the home and garden, sodium percarbonate will not damage the plants or lawn around your patio or deck. When mixed with water, sodium percarbonate produces oxygen. It is this oxygen that lifts the dirt from the deck.

5 Good Reasons to use Sodium Percarbonate to Clean your Decking

  1.  100% No Odour. There really is none, zero, zilch!
  2.  Eco friendly, no impact on the environment.
  3.  No staining of surrounding areas.
  4.  No nasty chemicals hanging around in the garage or shed. Sodium percarbonate has many different uses in the home too.
  5. Prevents regrowth of algae.
  6. It is non toxic and non corrosive. It simply breaks down organic stains and bacteria using oxygen which help to the lift dirt from the surface, sterilising and deodorising as it goes.
  7. Safe for pets and the family


How to Clean Decking with Sodium Percarbonate.

  1. Mix or Spread Sodium Percarbonate Granules

    Mix 50 grams with 1 litre of warm water in a watering can or sprayer. Alternatively dampen the deck with a hose pipe, then sprinkle with a gloved hand 2oz per 1sqm (great for a grooved deck).

  2. Leave to React

    Leave the sodium percarbonate to react with the water for 10 minutes

  3. Brush

    If the decking is particularly dirty, Give the deck a light scrub with a deck brush

  4. Rinse and Seal

    Rinse the decking with fresh water.
    As the deck dries it will gradually lighten in colour over the following days. This is a perfect time to oil or seal your deck to protect it from the harsh weather.
