Has a cedar stain on it now that has just worn away. Some split boards and snags which I heard this 'Restore' was good for that.

Answer: 
I think you are confusing two products. Restore which resurfaces, like a heavy paint coating, and Restore Cleaner. I recommend using the Restore Cleaner prior to recoating your deck with any type of stain or paint. You will have to brush scrub the surface or use a lower pressure, pressure wash nozzle (40 degree). I do not have any experience with Restore.

Answer: 
Deck stain won't stick well to very dirty or moldy areas so yes, you need to clean your deck before applying deck paint/stain. A power washer may be required but not always.

Answer: 
No, you do not have to. But if you want the paint job to last, it is a good idea to use a product like this. As with any painting or staining job, the better job of preparing the surface, the better the results.

Based on your description, I would most certainly prep the surface with this product. If you can gain access to a pressure washer I recommend this as opposed to using elbow grease :-) 2nd I would recommend using a 5" orbital sander if you have access to one and slap on a few scrubbing discs... ask the guys with the orange vests to assist in locating the right ones :-) after power washing, proceed to remove any scaling of the stain and or wood fibers / splinters etc... Remember! no matter how strong your coating is... if your substrate or surface coating below is spalling / delaminating.... so will the new coating no mater how strong or thick it is... So the question remains... how intact is your existing substrate now ? any flaking needs to be removed, your choice on how you want to go about doing that :-) then I would proceed with the "Deck Over Concrete Cleaner" as per instructions. Make sure that you do not allow a long laps in time from your prep phase to your initial coatings phase, environmental interference can cause failure between processes... I hope this was helpful, in short why would you skip using a preparatory product and take a chance ? your coatings will only and will always remain to be as good or as strong as your preparatory work...

We do recommend using Deck & Concrete Restore Cleaner prior to applying Deck & Concrete Restore to your surface. Before application of Deck & Concrete Restore, your surface must be clean, dry and free of dirt, grease, mildew, organic growth, and other contaminants to ensure proper bonding and adhesion. Smooth and/or glossy surfaces should be sanded or roughed up to aid in adhesion. For best results use a pressure washer to remove embedded dirt and grime. For grease and oil spots use tri-sodium phosphate (TSP) according to manufacturer’s directions to remove stains. For mildew and other organic growth use a diluted solution of household bleach (3 parts water to 1 part bleach) applied to the surface before cleaning. Read Less

Answer: 
I think product label says 2,000 sq. ft. Depending on quantity applied you should easily cover 1,500 sq. ft. on a flat surface. Less when doing railings.

Answer: 
Label says that coverage is larger than the Behr cleaner but you need to use a more concentrated dilution. Very dirty areas may require full strength scrubbing and a power washer.

Answer: 
A little of this product goes a long way, but if you have heavier stains I would treat it twice. I cleaned my 10'x12' deck and 3 steps which run the entire 12' length and still have about 2/3 of a bottle left.

Rated 2.7 out of 5 by 46 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Purchased to clean my wood deck pre instructions from Rustoleum I'm sure this product is good if you are trying to get ride of mold or before painting a deck if you haven't pressure washed the deck. However, I pressure washed my deck rather well. I called Rustoleum customer service and they said it was like Washing your dishes without soap if you didn't use this prep. Well, if I pressure washed my dishes I know they would be clean. This prep works well on siding, the deck, I really didn't see any results. This prep was used before application of Rustoleum's Restore 10X Advanced. The newly painted deck looks great, the Restore 10X Advanced is worth the money. June 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cleaner works well Purchased product to clean large uncovered deck, stairs and railing, all cedar and last cleaned 7 years ago. 7 years of Pacific NW weather generates lots of moss, mold, mildew and failed stain/sealer. Used 40 degree pressure washer nozzle, after application per instructions, some areas close to house were hand scrubbed. Product is not just hose off but works well and restored wood color, too. A jug makes 8 gallons, very economical. July 19, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Garbage I bought my house in December and noted that the concrete patio out back look like a grill had been allowed to pop grease all over it. I also noted a good amount of green mold /algae on it. I read the directions on this product before purchasing and even bought the special little roller to make sure that I did everything correctly. It didn't take anything off, not even the mold. I reapplied and scrubbed it, even left it set longer. It did not work at all. I'm taking what's left of it back tomorrow and asking for my money back. July 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product to Clean Old Deck Used this product to clean old wood on a 20 year old deck - prior to using the Primer - it worked great cleaned grease spots from the grill and mildew spots off the deck with very little effort - followed directions and sprayed on then waited 10 minutes before washing off with the power washer. July 12, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Does not work Purchased the product to prep the deck before repainting. There is really no difference between using the product or just pressure washing. July 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Deck cleaner The cleaner works very good. It even softened and removed old deck stain so you have good wood to start with. June 30, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by It doesn't remove stains caused by mold, mildew, fungus, etc. I carefully read the label and saw where it specifically stated that it "removes stains caused by mold, mildew, fungus, etc.". Save your money and time and don't bother buying it! April 12, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not a very effective cleaner Used this cleaner with water hose and a stiff-bristled brush on a 14x12 deck. I mixed it to the appropriate ratio in a sprayer, applied it and let it sit before starting to scrub. Several parts of the framing of our deck receive no sunlight but they are still quite visible because of where our deck sits. This cleaner seemed to do very little to loosen the dirt and greenish staining that I assume is mildew. In fact, if I didn't scrub thoroughly, it really did nothing to kill the mildew.
