Follow these instructions to control exposure to other hazardous substances that may be released during surface preparation.
Surfaces to be cleaned must be thoroughly dry. For use as a deck cleaner with Olympic RESCUE IT! MAX Resurfacer + Primer + Sealant, apply Olympic RESCUE IT! MAX Prep Cleaner at full strength with recommended spray equipment.
Spray liberally and allow to stand for 5–10 minutes. Work into surface with a stiff broom, then thoroughly rinse treated surface and surrounding areas with large amounts of water to neutralize cleansing action. Repeat cleaning steps as many times as necessary to remove all dirt, mildew, grease and algae.
Pressure-wash using LOW to MODERATE pressure. (High pressure may damage wood surface and cause product to fail.) Allow wood to dry completely (minimum 24 hours).
Rinse spray equipment thoroughly with water. Store in a cool, dry location in a tightly closed plastic container.
