All surfaces must be clean, dry, and free from dirt, mildew stains, dust and other foreign matter. Do not apply over sealed surfaces. Remove surface stains, dirt and failed oxidized stains with Superdeck?Wood Cleaner. Remove solid stains or paints with Superdeck? Wood Stripper. For redwood and cedar, follow cleaning or stripping with Superdeck? Wood Brightener to remove tannin stains and brighten wood to its original color. For new wood remove mill glaze with Superdeck? Wood Brightener.
WARNING! Removal of old paint by sanding, scraping or other means may generate dust or fumes that contain lead. Exposure to lead dust or fumes may cause brain damage or other adverse health effects, especially in children or pregnant women. Controlling exposure to lead or other hazardous substances requires the use of proper protective equipment, such as a properly fitted respirator (NIOSH approved) and proper containment and cleanup.
