Deck sealer got on my windows
We had our existing deck sanded down and restained with a clear Thompson's (I am not sure) deck sealer. We also had our railing replaced and had a new one installed with metal ballisters. When the deck guys came to seal the deck, the placed cardboard over the metal ballisters and sprayed the railing. Because of a light wind, I got thousands of tiny deck sealer spots on my windows and doorwalls that face the deck. I cannot get them off for anything. Is there any product out there that will remove the sealer that got on my windows and doors??? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

If you have vinyl windows, be very careful with any harsh solvents.

Mineral spirits has worked get off some previous materials and you can also try silicon spray.

I’d call the product manufacture and ask. There’s almost always a help line number listed on the can or website.

Have you talked to the people that did this? It’s their mess, they should be cleaning it up.

You can use some organic solvents
