Preparing Your Surfaces

General:  Read the Lead Warning in the Product Details (PDF). Thoroughly clean the surface and allow to dry. Remove all surface dirt, chalk and mildew. Stained areas: Scrub with an all-purpose cleaner to remove residual stains.

Tannin stains:  No special surface preparation needed.

Fire damage: Remove burned or charred areas down to a sound wood surface and sand smooth.

Mildew stains: This product will seal residual stains from old mildew, but will not resist underlying mildew growth. All active mildew growth must be removed from the surface prior to application by scrubbing with a commercial mildew remover or a solution of 1 part liquid chlorine bleach to 3 parts water.  Rinse thoroughly. Wear protective goggles and rubber gloves to avoid chemical contact with eyes and skin.

Metal:  Seals rust stains on previously painted metal. This product is not, however, an anti-rust primer. Use anti-rust primer to protect bare iron and steel surfaces from rust.
