HOW TO APPLY:
- Before use, remove any loose debris from the decking area and ensure you have adequate personal protection; i.e gloves, suitable protective eye-wear, face mask & clothing.
- StoneCare4u Essential Deck Cleaner (25 Litre) is to be used neat or diluted 1:1 with clean water – always perform a small test area to determine suitable dilution rate and dwell time. Carefully transfer the cleaning fluid from the bottle to a pump sprayer or watering can. If these containers are not available then cleaning fluid can be used directly from the bucket. Apply generously.
- The cleaning fluid needs to be left on the surface for at least an hour, during that time the surface must not be allowed to dry out. If necessary mist with additional StoneCare4u Essential Deck Cleaner (25 Litre) or with clean water to prevent the decking from drying. Work the area(s) of staining with a brush, if necessary, but ensure the surface remains wet at all times.
- Leave for at least two hours.
- After at least two hours dwell time, the treated area should be washed down with clean water first to neutralise the cleaner before then power washing off for perfect results. Please note the cleaning fluid can harm or possibly kill vegetation so try to avoid washing off onto garden or lawn grass. If this unavoidable then rinse with plenty of clean water to dilute the StoneCare4u Essential deck Cleaner (25 Litre).
- In areas of heavy soiling and engrained dirt it may be necessary to extend the dwell time of StoneCare4u Essential Deck Cleaner (25 Litre) to up to 4 hours or overnight where necessary, before power washing off. To achieve perfect results on aged, stubborn black/white lichen spots, test a small area to ascertain the required dwell time necessary to remove the marks – then follow the instructions above. Two to three applications may be needed.
Please Note: StoneCare4u Essential Deck Cleaner (25 Litre) contains a chlorine type agent as an active ingredient and will stain fabrics and sensitive materials. Take special care to avoid contact with fabrics & tarmac during application.
