I am ready to install new PT 5/4 x 6 deck boards on my PT framing. Many of the 5/4 boards are dirty, some are quite dirty in spots. A trial spot clean with a simple brushing with my hand removed some of it. Other spots the dirt appears to be a bit more embedded.
Knowing the decking needs to dry before any stain can be applied am wondering if I should remove the grime now while the boards are still wet or wait and clean them just before sanding and staining?
Also... what should I use to clean off this dirt and grime? Remember this is brand new PT wood. Never been exposed to the weather.
Thank you for your help.
