Stripping just the Decking

Hi, I overapplied semi-transparent stain to a small PT deck. It looks splotchy, too dark, and is a little tacky compared to my larger deck.

Can I strip just the decking and treads, but avoid stripping/restraining everything? I don’t care that the beams/risers/footings are a little tacky. Any tips? I have Defy stripper and a pressure washer.

Thanks!

It depends on the brand of stain and it is hard to not have it splash onto the railing, etc when stripping the floors.

Ahh ok, I wasn’t sure if splashing was going to be an issue or not. It’s Olympic Maximum(dark grey color).
