What can I use over Behr Deckover to protect it from dirt and stains?

We just finished stripping the old stain/waterseal and puting on 2 coats of Deckover. It looked great untill leaves fell from the trees and stained it. Nothing cleans the stains off. It will look like a dirty old deck in a week. What good is a new finish on the deck if you can't clean it? Is there some clear coat I can purchase to put over it now before it gets too dirty?

Welcome to our community A1star! 


I'm so sorry you are having problems with DeckOver. :( When I called Behr, they recommended using a mild detergent and a soft bristle brush to clean the surface. If a mild detergent doesn't work, try using water mixed with Dawn. Since the leaves left an oil stain, this may work better than a regular detergent. 


A clear coat is not recommended for this product. Be mindful of falling leaves, especially this time of year. They can stain anything, but especially concrete and decking. 


If you have any more questions, please let us know!
