In this case the wood had never had a stain applied to it, but was only old and gray looking. To remove this old dead wood Palmetto Home & Deck applied our special wood cleaner to the wood and then followed up with a low pressure wash. A low pressure washing along with the right cleaning solutions is generally all that is needed to clean most wood.
You can see the vast difference between the wood that has been cleaned and the wood that hasn't in this picture. Unfortunately, there are plenty contractors that will not properly clean the wood before staining it, but on which side do you think would produce the best results?
