Climatic conditions vary considerably from one locality to the next. In some locales, mold and/or mildew may be a problem. These appear as black spots occurring on the surface and are usually first detected in areas not subject to sunlight or rainfall, such as under eaves and enclosures. For removal, prepare a solution as follows:
• 1/3 cup detergent (Tide for example)
• 2/3 cup Trisodium Phosphate (Soilax)
• 1 quart of Sodium Hypochlorite (Clorox)
• 3 quarts of water
• All to make 1 gallon of solution
• Greater concentrations may cause
damage to the finish
The following simple cleaning procedures should be scheduled as conditions demand.
For surface soils or stains resulting from industrial fallout, tree sap, insecticides, chimney soot, etc., the use of ordinary non-abrasive household detergent is recommended (For example, 1/3 cup of non-bleach Tide per gallon of water). The solution should be applied to the soiled surface by means of a soft rag, sponge, or soft bristle brush with a gentle rubbing action. Do not rub vigorously as it will create glossy area over the normal satin finish. Use extension handles to reach higher areas. Do not attempt without proper equipment. As with any cleaning operation, less streaking will result if product is washed bottom to top, then thoroughly rinsed.
If stubborn stains are encountered, use a heavy duty cleaner such as "Fantastik" or "Simple Green," available at super markets or Industro-Clean from AMWAY. Heavy soil deposits may require multiple applications. Do not use ammoniated type cleaners, or solvents or abrasive cleansers, as they may soften or remove the finish.
