Customer Questions & Answers

will I need a pressure washer to use this product to clean my deck

will I be able to use a ordinary water hose for this project; will I need to allow it to soak before rinsing??
Asked by: Patricia
No. The hose end sprayer is designed to fit a standard garden hose. It will supply sufficient amount of pressure to clean well. We suggest following the directions on the label and allow product to remain on the surface for 5-10 minutes before rinsing.

How many square feet of deck will one jug be enough for ?

Asked by: Jim
Covers 800 square feet according to an HD customer service person I had an online chat with--I had that question, too. I also just reread the label on the back of the jug and it doesn't say.

Will this remove old stain on a fence?

My cedar fence is stained a dark brown and is in mostly good condition. The top railing however has worn/peeling stain and I'd like to touch it up. I'm looking for something that will prep the fence for that as well as remove bird droppings without stripping the stain and forcing me to restain the entire fence
Asked by: Eve
We recommend testing the product in an inconspicuous area before using. Our experience using this product on multiple surfaces does not result in the removal of wood stain. However, to be safe, we would recommend testing before proceeding.

I want to use this on a screened cedar porch. Will it hurt or bleach the fiberglass screen?

Asked by: Snoopduck
We used it around our fiberglass sliding screen door and it was fine--no problems.

56 oz. Instant Deck and Fence Wash is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from It did the job, but . . . . ! I would recommend this product with some reservations. I will readily confess that the solution did the job it was meant to do (see the pix) but not without a free bath included. The nozzle included with this container is made of lightweight flexible plastic which would not hold the hose when it was attached according to instructions. Even when I reduced the water pressure at the tap the device still blew water all over me when I tried to use it. I finally overcame the issue by putting an automotive hose clamp over the end of the nozzle into which the hose screws and tightening it securely enough to quell the deluge and make the device work correctly. Next time, bathing suit, mask and fins. I reiterate, the product did do the job it was meant to do so I do recommend it, but use the hose clamp or bring a bar of soap and a towel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick and Easy Clean Caution around vegetation this product contains bleach. Just connect to garden hose with good pressure, spray on deck, and rinse. Quick and easy. Make sure not to spray directly into the wind because of the bleach.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not very strong....probably wouldn't buy this again I have never had much luck with fence and deck cleaners that come out of a bottle. However, I thought I would give this one a try. I have green mold starting on my deck that is approximately 3 years old. I connected the bottle to a hose and used it as instructed, but I didn't really see much of an affect. I let it sit, then scrubbed it and rinse it. My deck got a little cleaner, but I am NOT convinced it was from this product. I have much better success with products that contain bleach.(especially on vinyl fencing, make sure you read the instructions) Also, a pressure washer seems to be another great tool for cleaning a deck (make sure you don't get too close and damage the deck/fence)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smells of Bleach Very stong smell but works great. I sprayed on my deck that had Restore Paint on it. Let it soak in. I then sprayed it with a power washer (low pressure) and did a great job. I would not spray this around a place where you have pets, small children or plants.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not effective Applied solution as instructed. The wood surfaces on the deck didn't show it's being cleaned during the wait time and after raising off part of the deck, realized it's not doing much cleaning and had to used brush to scrub. However, even with scrubbing, the result is not much better than before. Also, the bottle showed can cover 800 sq ft. I only applied to part of the small deck that may have been around 100 sq ft. and the bottle seems to have less then half solutions left. Probably won't even bother to use the rest to the remaining of the deck because it probably would be a waste of time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worked good, but not great. Product labeling not an accurate representation of actual results. I applied Instant Moldex Instant Deck Wash to my cedar and composite deck that had greyed and a set of teak outdoor furniture that developed black spots from mold and mildew. The direction on the product labeling state to turn the nozzle to CLEAN and then to RINSE, however there are no such nozzle settings; only MIX and WATER. The nozzle started to leak product when I attached it to a garden hose. Since it smells strongly of bleach, and I didn’t want it dripping all over the place, including on me, I emptied the contents of the bottle into a 2-gal pressure sprayer and added about 1 gallon of water to ensure I had a fairly strong solution to apply to my deck and outdoor furniture. I gave the sprayer a shake and applied the product liberally to all surfaces of the deck and furniture, and waited 10-15 minutes for the magic to happen before I started to rinse the product off, as per the instructions. While the outdoor furniture looked noticeably cleaner and brighter, the deck didn’t show much improvement, so I decided to let the product sit longer. 30 minutes later, there was some further improvement, but not huge, so I decided to leave it on and not rinse it off. Over the next 1-2 hours the deck and deck rails continued to dry and brightened a bit more, but the results I experienced were nothing like those depicted on the product labeling that shows deck boards severely blackened with mold and mildew looking new after using the product. Had I used the product with a garden hose as instructed, the solution would have applied significantly more diluted and therefore would have been even less effective. Unfortunately, every material aspect of this product was a disappointment; from the application instructions being inconsistent with the labeling on the nozzle, to the nozzle dripping product, to the end results being slightly exaggerated. While I hoped this product would save me some time and effort, I’ll need to redo my deck with the product I usually use, which is more effective and less costly than Moldex Instant Deck Wash. Works good, but not great. Don't expect miracles and you won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great results cleaning our 25-year old deck! Quick and easy, awesome! We were worried that we'd never get around to taking care of the deck, since the heat has been so awful! But it got done in no time, once we got started. We cleaned the deck with Instant Deck and Fence Wash, and it got so clean, with just rinsing the product off, a little bit of brushing with our 4-sided outdoor scrub brush from Home Depot... I have photos of the before and after and I wouldn't have believed the deck was so in need of cleaning, but it looks so clean now! The only complaint that we had was the nozzle on the bottle, worked well sometimes, but sometimes came off of the hose. this may have been a one-time problem, it may have been the old hose we are using, but that would be the single improvement we would suggest... check out the photos of our old, but very clean deck!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good product for outside cleaning jobs Molded instant Deck Wash cleans decks, fences, and lattice enclosure under decks. This is a fast easy method the clean and remove the mold and fungus mainly due to the shaded areas. The 56 oz container covers up to 800 square feet which is great. The instructions are easy too follow and complete. The instructions for self and plants are straight forward and does carry a EnviroCare label. The hose end container eliminates mixing chemicals and separate hose to rinse. Most jobs do not require a pressure washer to accomplish a cleaning task.
