Deck is oily?

Anonymous asked 9 years ago

We recently put Thompsons Waterseal on our deck. I love the way it looks but it is almost like it has a coating of oil on it now and it very messy to track into your house or even sit on. Are we supposed to wash it now? This is Monday and we sealed it Saturday morning and have had no rain yet.

What was the prior condition of the deck before you used the sealer???

Wipe down the deck with acetone and clean rags to remove the excess "oil." Make sure to put the rags into a bucket of water after their use.
