Coverage

One gallon covers up to 300 sq. feet or 27.9 sq. meters. Coverage will vary depending on type, age and texture of wood.

Area Preparation

Spray all plants and vegetation liberally with water before and after application. Cover delicate vegetation to avoid damage. Do not allow cleaner to come into contact with metal, fabric, floor coverings or lawn furniture.

WARNING! If you scrape, sand, or remove old paint, you may release lead dust or fumes. LEAD IS TOXIC. EXPOSURE TO LEAD DUST OR FUMES CAN CAUSE SERIOUS ILLNESS, SUCH AS BRAIN DAMAGE, ESPECIALLY IN CHILDREN. PREGNANT WOMEN SHOULD ALSO AVOID EXPOSURE. Wear a properly fitted NIOSH-approved respirator and prevent skin contact to control lead exposure. Clean up carefully with a HEPA vacuum and a wet mop. Before you start, find out how to protect yourself and your family by contacting USEPA National Lead Information Hotline at 1-800-424-LEAD or log on to www.epa.gov/lead. Follow these instructions to control exposure to other hazardous substances that may be released during surface preparation.

Application

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).

Cleanup

Rinse spray equipment thoroughly with water. Store in a cool, dry location in a tightly closed plastic container.

Warning

Please refer to the Product Label, Technical Data Sheet (TDS) or Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for safety and detailed application instructions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clove Brown I used this product to clean my deck that had never been treated with any type of sealant since it was built 9 years ago. It did a great job getting all the dirt and grime off of it. Now time to stain it. What a great product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Olympic® RESCUE IT!® MAX Prep Cleaner disappointment I have used Thompson deck cleaners and strippers for many years without any negative results. Also, I have used Olympic finish products without any issues or negative results. Surprised they are marketing a poor product. Noticed Rescue it at my local Lowe's and gave it a try. Took three days to get rid of the bleach odor coming from everywhere. May as well used a gallon of Clorox. I am aware that many of these cleaners contain same chemicals as bleach, however, this one seemed to be very over powering. May be a good idea to change the formula a bit. I will be requesting a refund from Lowe's soon.
