Please Help urgent


Hello, I messed up huge. I stained a neighbor's deck. Number 2 pressure treated never stained before over a year old. Did it with (Olympic Maximum tinted waterproofing sealant) penetrating acrylic/oil formula. Warm water and soap clean up. The big problem now. I put it down with a roller. After about 19 hours, there are a lot of very tacky big spots. Looks like I put down to much in those spots. Whole floor looks uneven color wize. Some of floor has dryed nice and looks about what it should in color, but only that is just a little bit of the deck. I should of used a brush. Big deck, about 10 by 16 ft. Home Depot maybe a stain stripper remover. Lowe's says hold on till drys and then call him back and he will see what I can do. Maybe he thinks it will blend in after it drys. But I really don't think so. Deck really looks bad. This is not a case of different shades of the pressure wood.

Please help me, what can I do?? I really want to remove the bad spots and really maybe go all over the deck when trying to fix this. What can I get now to try. Any help would be appreciated really soon. Being that it was a neighbor I fill bad about this. thank you. Jim

The method of applying the stain doesn't matter, following the instructions do. With any stain, on any surface, you apply it and after a few minutes you wipe off the excess. If the desire is a darker stain, you reapply it.
At this point, I see you sanding the deck to get it uniform and restaining it. That is if your neighbor is still speaking to you.

If you choose to sand PT wood, be sure you use an approved respirator, some of the PT wood contains a variety of toxins, including arsenic and chromium in certain types of PT. You certainly do NOT want to be breathing that, nor do you want to subject your neighbor or anyone else to sanding dust. Better plan would be to use a chemical stain remover if it works, if you have to sand use a dust collection system in addition to the mask.

Thanks for the info. I went and rented a floor sander and after geting most of the darn mistake I made off, I then used my power washer. I fill better now and will hold on for a few days untill deck is dry and re apply the stain. I don't know what I was thinking when I first stained that deck. When I built a few pieces of furniture, I all ways wiped the stain on and then off. I guess I was in a hurry. thanks guys.
