Aqualis Cleaning, Preparation & Stripping

Aqualis Timber Clean is an environmentally friendly, water-based tannin/oil remover suitable for use on all new and aged timber species.

Aqualis Timber Clean is designed to be used in conjunction with Aqualis Timber Prep as a total cleaning and preparation solution prior to the application of Aqualis H2Oil. 

Surface Preparation

Cover all areas which require protection with plastic sheeting and thoroughly wet all plants and shrubs in the designated cleaning vicinity. Take caution when walking on wet surfaces especially steps and stairs as they will become slippery.


Ensure all safety Instructions are followed as per Safety Data Sheet, wear safety goggles, gloves, and protective clothing.

  1. Thoroughly wet the substrate surface with clean water.
  2. Apply Timber Clean at the recommended concentration with a mop or spray and scrub with a stiff broom or mechanical scrubber. Leave for 2-3 min allowing Timber Clean to penetrate the surface.
  3. Ensure the deck is always wet during this process; do not allow Timber Clean solution to dry on timber surface.
  4. Thoroughly rinse off Timber Clean with fresh water removing all extracted residues from timber surface, ensure no residues are left on any timber, concrete, walls, windows etc.
  5. Whilst timber is still wet, wash the surface with Timber Prep solution at the recommended rates. Scrub surface with a stiff broom or mechanical scrubber and leave for 2-3 min. This will neutralise the surface in preparation for Aqualis H2Oil application (this is a very important step).
  6. Rinse off with fresh water ensuring that there is no greasy film left on the surface and allow to dry for up to 24hrs before coating with Aqualis H2Oil

Timber Clean may affect aluminium surfaces if left on for long periods of time. Quickly rinse or wipe off with a wet cloth as required.
