I hired a contractor to stain my deck, he didn't clean the deck and just applied stain directly..?

When I asked him why he didn't clean he stated power washing or using bleaches shorten the lifespan of the deck, and while it doesn't look great it now protected. What can I do, is my deck ruined? He used Olympic oil based toner.
