Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Poetsteve OK, but not as good as Behr
The Behr is more expensive and the label says it covers less area but it works better in dilution than this cleaner. I have to go back over a number of areas with a more concentrated dilution because it didn't come clean on first scrub. Not a bad value but not the best product for the job.

... if you have bleach and detergent at home.
I found no advantage to using Restore ($1.50/gal of finished product) to clean my deck compared to a home-mix of water, bleach and liquid laundry detergent (<$1/gal of finished product).
Of course, if you have to go get bleach or detergent, then it's a wash.

Okay..... so after reading many of the reviews for this product I felt it necessary as a professional contractor to chime in and give my two cents for what it's worth. Keep in mind folks that this product is a preparatory product NOT! an end product to produce sparkly "Mr. Clean" results transforming blemished decks and concrete pads into newly looking surfaces. To remove moss and stains from concrete entirely takes profiling the surface with mechanical etching equipment, same goes for wood decks to remove scaling of old paint ( mechanical equipment being different for each surface mind you ) So this product is not intended as an end product but is to serve as a preparatory product to recondition the chemical composition of a concrete slab to stabilize the PH in the concrete while at the same time removing as many foreign particulates as possible... "chemically profiling" NOT! "mechanically profiling" the substrate... While other processes require you to purchase a 1. a cleaner 2. a degreaser 3. chemical profiler 4. a chemical neutralizer... This product with LOW ! V.O.C. has all the above in one unit... Compare that to other industrial specific products and the Value of this "concentrated" product is superb. As far as performance ALL! substrates are different from one to the next... so while others will require a simple chemical prep, others may require mechanical prep and sorry to be the one to break that news to you but thats the brass tacks facts... NOW ALL THAT SAID! for the money "value" and what this product is intended to do " chemically prep " & balance the PH in the concrete... this product does the job it was designed to do... Follow up with the appropriate coating and you will increase your chances of a superior bond and decrease your chances of bond failure which many coatings products get a bad name because individuals do not "PREP" properly... your coating will only be and will always remain to be as good or as strong as your prep work.. Also keep in mind that for concrete it is a very good idea to look for an efflorescent or MVB ( moisture vapor barrier ) in liquid form to apply to the slab after prep but before your coating... this is the number one cause of spalling or delaminating of the coating of which the coating product get a bad wrap... SEE WHERE I AM GOING WITH ALL THIS. ? it's not the product often times it's usually the operator... Sorry if you disagree but that is my two cents...

It's too bad this wasn't available in a smaller bottle. At 1 cup to a gallon, I have most of the gallon left after cleaning a 200 sq ft patio in preparation for the Restore. It did the job well, and the Restore X10 has remained intact on the patio, so I'm glad I used the cleaner as instructed. After diluting, I sloshed it all over the patio and used a good push broom to scrub the surface in both directions, then hosed it away with a high pressure nozzle. I suspect I can use the remainder to just clean my driveway really well some day, even though I don't plan to coat it with Restore.

I used this with my pressure washer to clean my trailer deck. Now, a deck cleaner is not what most people would think of using, but my trailer uses 5/4 pressure treated deck boards for the deck and stake sides. Considering that I use it to haul everything from lumber to a 1/2 yard of gravel, as well as taking things to the dump, it gets a real workout.
Using it was easy - rinse the deck first to get off anything on it. Drop the siphon tube from the pressure washer into the jug, and wash down the deck. Now WAIT a bit before rinsing it off. I know it is tempting to rinse it off right away, but don't do it. Give it time to work - at least 6 minutes. More for a real dirty deck. Just don't let it dry out on the deck. Rinse it off good, and you should have a deck ready for staining. It even removed the grease from when my nephew used it to move his tools.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LisaB Worked for me!
I had a 6-year old deck that was in dire need of cleaning & refinishing. Decided to take on the project this weekend after buying this cleaner almost a year ago. I used a pump sprayer and a large broom -- the stuff started working immediately. I did need to scrub a little in the worst places, but this deck was filthy. I couldn't believe the difference.

Ran out of the Olympic deck cleaner and HD carried this - gave it a try and it's utter garbage. Scrubbed and still the mold was left behind. Couldn't tell the difference between this and plain old soap. Trust me - Olympic deck cleaner. No scrub, and outperformed this product. Wish I could get my money back.
