How to Get Grease Stain Out of Wood Deck: DIY Tips and Techniques

More often than not, wooden deck is in the form of a flat platform found next to a house, without a roof. It is like an extension of a living space that provides convenient space for relaxing, cooking, entertaining with friends and many other outdoor activities.

But, with the passage of time, chances are, nicks and stains might occur on the surface of your deck due to various factor such as moisture present in the air, spilled oil and grease from grills and barbeques, resulting weathering and damages.

Removing stains from the wooden deck can be simple or complex, depending on the nature of the stain. Stains that occur as a result of spilled liquids and grease are quite tougher and requires comparatively more time and effort than others to get out. And, if they soak into the wood for quite a long time, they are nearly impossible to get out. So, if your wooden deck is a victim of grease stains, you need to clean them ASAP or they will ruin the beautiful appearance of your deck!!

Well, there is a range of products that you can use to clean such stains but Krud Kutter is the one of the most appreciated product for its easy use and functionality. Follow these below mentioned steps depending on your cleaning area.

Spot Cleaning: Follow these steps to remove the stains from a particular area. To do this task effectively, you should take care of the following steps:
