Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by springfieldsherry2 very good product
We had a new floor installed on our existing deck last fall. Because of the wet weather (DC area) during the winter and early spring, I had to wait until now to clean and seal for use. I chose the Flood product because of the reviews it has gotten and because it is carried in the store ... some products have to be ordered, creating as much as a day-10 wait. The new flooring had ink stamps on all of the boards, so I chose this product with the hope that it would thoroughly clean the boards. And did it ever! I used a sprayer to apply, waiting only about 20 minute, misted a little to keep it moist, 'scrubbed' with a long-handled bristle brush, and rinsed with a hose. It took a while and a lot of water to get all the product off the boards (which is why I gave it a 'good' overall rating) but I am very pleased with the outcome. It completely removed all of the ink stamps and one softball sized grease stain from our grill. Highly recommend this product. Now I can clean the rest of the deck and stairs and seal it all. Should be ready to use by the weekend!

Switched to this from another very common option at Home Depot. Was very pleased with the results - applied, let sit for 15-20 minutes, and then pressure washed off. This removed 95% of the remaining stain, unlike the first option I tried.

After many attempts of trying to get down to the actual the natural wood on my deck ...this product finally worked. When I went back to get a second container the store was sold out. I switched to the Behr product which didnt even take 2 coats of the numerous layers of stain on my deck

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 Didn't do the job. Returned to store.
Bought this because the Behr product got such poor reviews but found that this didn't do it either. Had only one coat of three year old chipping, peeling Behr Premium Stain to remove and it barely nicked it. Pressure washing (pw) was required and it didn't matter whether it was pw'ed where the solution had been applied or not. Contacted the manufacturer for help but basically was told that it might have been a bad batch and to return it for a full refund if not satisfied, which is exactly what I did.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Barbara Flood Wood Stripper
I bought this stripper for a problem deck which was peeling badly. I don't know what had been used to finish it since we had just purchased the house. First we used another well known brand and it did nothing. The Flood did a great job. I watched the video directions on their website and it was not hard. I followed with a light sanding and everyone who saw the finished product was amazed at the difference.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mark An Amazing stripper!
So here’s the deal, I had already used the Behr stripper and thought my deck looked better. Then purchased another Behr product which was a “Simi Translucent Stain” and weather proofing in Cedar. You would have thought I just took the stain and threw it randomly on the deck. To say that the deck was patchy is being kind. I went back to Home Depot (and they where kind enough to refund me for my dissatisfaction with the stain) and bought the “Flood Wood Finish Stripper”. I was blown away. Sprayed a coat on my deck, left it for 30 min and then with my garden hose set on jet stream, washed everything away. (That did take some time.) To my amazement, my deck was brighter than it had been in ages and it removed ALL the stain I had just put down the day before. This is the only deck cleaner/stripper I will ever use again!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jenniexfitfire Just doesn't work
I am trying to remove old stain from my deck, and this product just isn't working. I have just finished rinsing the THIRD application of this product, and my deck still retains about 60% of the original stain. Not only that, but there was some over-spray that got on my siding, and it completely discolored my siding. Ugh. What a huge waste of time and money.
