Default Sealing the deck ... waiting for the rain to end

"Diamondback" wrote in message ...
About a month ago I power-washed our deck. The materials I bought suggested
waiting a couple days until the deck wood had dried out thoroughly before
applying a sealer. Unfortunately, here in the Midatlantic states, it hasn't
stopped raining since.

My question is, since I can only get one day of sunshine a week, am I doing
more damage to the wood by waiting the two days? Or should I wait until the
wood looks reasonably dry and roll the dice?


Maybe a construction heater fan is needed to speed up the drying?

I don't think it's Ok to wait. But then you need to clean the bird
drops, dust and rain drops again before the sealing.
