Give your home or deck new life with X-180 Weathered Wood Restorer™.  X-180 is a safe, biodegradable wood cleaner and brightener that eliminates years of discoloration resulting from accumulations of dirt, mildew and fungus, as well as exposure to sunlight and environmental pollutants. Using high pressure water alone to clean wood will create damage to wood fibers as well as uneven stop and start marks. Water alone will not remove the fungus growth in the fibers.  X-180 cleans and restores wood surfaces back to the appearance of original lumber. It is also well suited for the removal of mill glaze * commonly found on decking as well as recently milled logs and half log siding.

Uses: decks, siding, shakes, logs, mill glaze removal, brightening and restoration of all types of discolored wood

Mill glaze, a smooth, glossy surface (waxy film) found on smooth, newly mill sawn lumber which is impervious to most coatings.

 

The Bleach Alternative

Household bleaching solutions contain Sodium Hypochlorite that does not produce a new natural wood color and harms the environment. Using bleach to clean wood may produce a chemical reaction with the outer wood fiber forming a film that can cause some paints and stains to not adequately penetrate the surface. The lack of penetration causes adhesion problems and can result in stains and paint separating from the wood surface and failing. Bleaching wood can also result in streaking and striping of the stain or paint applied.

 

Surface Preparation

  • Cover any sensitive plants with plastic tarps
  • Tarp any stone work or metal/tin roofing to prevent discoloration
  • Sweep surface free of dirt and debris

 

Application of X-180 Weathered Wood Restorer

  1. Spray the surface with clean water, wetting the wood.
  2. Mix X-180 Weathered Wood Restorer™ or All Wood Cleaner according to manufacturer’s directions on the container.
  3. Apply X-180 Weathered Wood Restorer™ or All Wood Cleaner from bottom to top with a pump up sprayer. Make sure the surface is fully saturated with X-180.
  4. Allow cleaner to dwell on the surface for 15-20 minutes. Scrub any areas that have excess dirt, pollen or mildew collected on the surface with a stiff bristle brushWarning: Never use steel wool on wood.
  5. Rinse top to bottom with a pressure washer at no more than 500 psi. Washing with a pressure washer above 500 psi can damage wood.  Keep rinsing with clean water until all the foam residue is gone and then rinse one more time.
  6. If using X-180 Weathered Wood Restorer or non-chlorine bleach, test the rinse water with pH strips to make sure X-180 and/or bleach has been washed off completely. Clean rinse water should be between 5 and 7 on the pH scale.
  7. Allow wood to dry for 3-5 dry, warm days before applying wood finish. Most finishes require wood to below a specific moisture content.  Make sure to check the wood with a moisture meter before applying wood finish. Walls beneath porch overhangs/roofs will not dry as fast as walls exposed to the sun.

 

Clean Up

  • Water flush shrubbery, sidewalks, blacktop, asphalt, equipment and all adjacent surfaces immediately upon contact.

 

Limitations

  • Will not remove any paint, stain or clear finish that is in sound condition.
