All wood surfaces must be thoroughly clean, dry and free of dirt, grease, grim, mildew, mill glaze and previous coatings before application. Spray all wood surfaces with clean water, completely wetting the wood. Apply a cleaning solution of four (4) ounces of 100% powdered Tri-Sodium Phosphate (TSP) or phosphate-free substitute with one (1) quart of liquid bleach and three (3) quarts of water to the wood surfaces with a garden sprayer or a heavy nap roller cover. Scrub surface with a hard bristle brush for 15-20 minutes to help remove mill glaze or weathering. Do not allow solution to dry on the wood surface. Power wash wood surface clean with fresh water using 500- 800 psi with the nozzle 8-12 inches away to remove cleaning solution. Allow the surface to dry for 48 hours, or to have a moisture content of 18% or less before application. Sand all cleaned wood using 80-120 grit sandpaper for vertical surfaces and 60-80 grit sandpaper for horizontal surfaces. Always sand in the direction of the wood grain and remove sanding dust. Finish should be applied within one week of preparation for horizontal surfaces (decks) and four weeks for vertical surfaces (siding), provided that the surface remains free of dirt, grease, grim and mildew.
