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.
