Questions & Answers

How long before seeing results

Asked by: JK
I saw good results immediately after hosing it down 10 minutes after application.

applying with a power washer

What is the correct dilution if i am hooking it up to a power washer, as the power washer itself will provide for a dilution during application?
Asked by: diyer
I used a separate spray bottle (went heavy on the concentration) and sprayed my GAF 30-year asphalt shingle roof, waited about 15 minutes, then (light-setting) hit it all with my pressure washer. Worked fine. Got years of nasty mold and mildew out of the roof, restored it to "like new" condition. I discerned minimal "shingle skin" loss.

Will m-1 remove stain from deck

Deck has been stained for a few years
Asked by: Ster
Yes, if you mix it 1 to 4. 1 part cleaner to 4 parts water. Dampen surface with water, spray it on and leave it for 20 minutes or so. If it drys out, mist wth water. It says on the label what it will do. May take 2 applications. You may not need to mix it that strong. Be careful as it’s really strong at this level. Will burn plants, skin and discolor aluminum and most metals also can etch glass. I’ve been using this for the past 10 years or so. Great product. Just careful with the power washing and not blast the it on the house or nearby stuff (cars, bbq and the like).

Does anyone have any experience with using this product on asphalt shingles? I have not had much luck on shingles.

Just rinsed with water, did not want to use pressure washer on shingles. Will it work with pressure washer?
Asked by: Jeb58
I have used it sparingly on dark spots caused by overhanging oak trees. I sprayed generously and hosed off with a normal water hose after about 10 minutes and it cleaned up quite nicely. I believe the key is to do it when the sun is shining on the shingles you wish to clean but that is merely my opinion from my own efforts. It's a good product.

1 gal. Deck and Roof Cleaner is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked as advertised Applied it on my deck through my power washer on low spray level. Used a stiff brush with light pressure to work it in a little better. Let sit for about 10-15 minutes, making sure it didn't dry by lightly spraying every 5 minutes, and power washed it off at medium to high pressure. Deck wood looks almost new. Removed all the mildew, dirt, and grease spillage from my BBQ grill. Deck is about 15 yrs. old and hadn't been cleaned in 3-4 years. Even loosened up the old peeling stain to help removal with power washer. Good product...worked as advertised.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded my expectations I replaced my roof shingles 5 years ago with a light tan color and oak trees hanging over the house had resulted in "tree scum". I was hesitant about harming the new shingles but used M-1 as directed and rather than using a pressure washer, I used a high pressure nozzle on a water hose to rinse. The result is that the affected shingles now look new like the rest of the roof. Azaleas planted directly in the roof drip line were not harmed in the process and I did not cover them. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT Tree Sap Remover I went over to the house of a friend of mine. He asked me how he could remove the tree sap from his expensive patio furniture. I said wait a minute, I have a "secret formula" in my truck that should work. I had a 8:1 pre-diluted spray bottle of M-1 in it. The minute I sprayed it on his chairs I could literally see the tree sap disappearing. I let it sit on the chair for a total of 5 minutes and pressure washed it clean. I was amazed, and so was he!! NO residue tree sap and dirt was all gone. My friend said that is the best his furniture had looked since the day he brought it home. Chalk up another useful application to M-1 Deck & Roof Cleaner!! Not just for roofs and decks anymore. I LOVE this stuff!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great i have been using this product for more than ten years now.i found that if you are cleaning your deck its best to do it on a rainy day,because the deck needs to stay wet the whole time. mix it 9 to 1,and spray it several times and just keep it soaked with the cleaner and a wet surface for an houre and rinse ,when the sun dries it out it will be cleaner,clean enough to stain.never p.w. a deck it will ruin the wood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stuff! Don't waste your money on anything else! I used in on a deck and roof shingles and the dirt and crud came right off. Anything else I've tried didn't work as well as this stuff. It doesn't have a bad smell at all, and it needs only 10 minutes to work. My deck is small, so I have probably enough left to last me for 10 yrs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ready for Staining Without Much Effort Easy and effective without much effort. Spray on, brush in, and power wash with a Home Depot power wash and your deck is ready for staining. This product took off over 10 years of dirt and grime. Wear protection as the chemicals are strong and irritating on the respiratory system.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No bleach or acids -- but it does have lye! This particular solution remains mostly unused, thanks to the chemistry that I discovered after reading the MSDS. I was planning to use it on my roof to remove the staining, but I decided against it. A test spot showed that it indeed removed the staining, but I decided not to go much further, and used a solution of bleach and Jo-max instead. Many deck cleaners have oxalic acid (a weak acid), and many mildew removers require the use of bleach. I find it funny that this material boasts of not containing acid or bleach, when it does contain a 14% concentration of NaOH, sodium hydroxide (lye, drain cleaner.) NaOH is a strong base, so this is correct that there is no acid or bleach, but NaOH is, in my mind, more dangerous than oxalic acid or bleach. Aluminum and NaOH are a famously bad combination. Now, if your aluminum capping is painted, and you rinse this solution quickly, there will be no problem. But I didn't want to risk it around the gutters, capping, and other aluminum siding on the house. So for decks, I can't see any harm, but for roofs, I do wonder about the wisdom of washing aluminum trim with this solution. If nothing else, the chemistry should be advertised/warned about more prominently.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good but need higher pressure to get great results Good stuff for roof but I tried to get away with water pressure less than 300 PSI which they say to use. You need to get an electric or some kind of pressure washer for it to really work well. Otherwise, great product and cleaned away moss and growth from the roof as promised, but you need something better than just plain pressure from garden hose.
