Preparation

General Preparation
Protect adjacent and surrounding surfaces not intended to be cleaned when necessary.

Surface and Air Temperatures
Excessively high or low temperatures will produce poor results and possible harm. Best cleaning results are obtained when air and surface temperatures are 40° F or above. Do not clean when temperatures are below freezing or will be overnight. If freezing conditions exist, allow adequate time for surface to thaw. If air temperatures exceed 90° F, flash cool the surface with water before applying product. Do not allow product to dry on a hot surface.

Pre-Testing
Always test prior to beginning full-scale cleaning operations. Testing should confirm cleaning effectiveness on each type of surface and stain designated to be cleaned. Test also to determine the desired surface contact time and any potential for adverse reactions with adjacent materials. Allow test panels to dry thoroughly before evaluating final appearance and results.

Dilutions
First cut at 4:1 to make product ready to use then follow the dilution range listed below: Apply using pressure washer up or downstream, or low pressure spray applicator

- 10:1 for difficult cleaning
- 20:1 for light soil
- Undiluted for gutters and down spouts

Note: Dilutions will vary based on the severity of the stain and type of surface.

Suitable Substrates
EIFS, glass, painted siding, vinyl siding, gutters, downspouts, masonry surfaces, vinyl awnings and wood.

Application

General Application
Cleansol BC was designed for use with a pressure washer by professionals but can be used by the homeowners with brush or low-pressure sprayer application using either hot or cold water. Brushless cleaning requires the product to be laid on the surface using two quick applications, which leads to complete soil release most of the time. High pressure rinsing is recommended. Water softeners are built into the product; water pretreatment is generally not necessary. Cleansol BC does not mix with bleach.

Coverage Rates
Coverage rates will vary from 100 - 250 sq. ft. per gallon depending on the surface porosity, texture and severity of staining.
