Not generally effective in removal of atmospheric stains and black carbon found on older masonry surfaces. Use the appropriate Sure Klean®restoration cleaner to remove atmospheric staining from older masonry surfaces.
Not for use on polished natural stone.
Not for use on treated low-E glass; acrylic and polycarbonate sheet glazing; and glazing with surface-applied reflective, metallic or other synthetic coatings and films.
Protect people, vehicles, property, metal, painted surfaces, plants and other non masonry materials from product, splash, rinse, wind drift and fumes. When working over traffic, clean when traffic is at a minimum. Protect or divert traffic if necessary.
Vapors and liquid can damage a variety of metals and fabrics. Clean masonry before installing windows, doors, finished flooring, metal fixtures, hardware, light fixtures, roofing materials and other non masonry items the cleaner could harm. If already installed, protect with polyethylene before application. Sure Klean® Strippable Masking is appropriate for use with this product to protect windows.
Maintain ventilation to avoid buildup of potentially damaging fumes. All caulking and sealant materials should be in place and thoroughly cured before cleaning.
Apply with low-pressure (50 psi max) spray or densely-packed, soft-fibered masonry washing brush. Do not atomize. Do not apply with pressure spray above 50 psi. This drives the chemicals deep into the surface, making complete rinse difficult.
Use acid-resistant rigging and safety equipment. Test spray equipment for compatibility and to avoid discoloration.
Rinse with enough water and pressure to flush spent cleaner and dissolved soiling from the masonry surface and surface pores without damage. Inadequate rinsing leaves residues which may stain the cleaned surface.
Masonry-washing equipment generating 400–1000 psi with a water flow rate of 6–8 gallons per minute is the best water/pressure combination for rinsing porous masonry. Use a 15–45° fan spray tip. Heated water (150–180° F; 65–82° C) may improve cleaning efficiency. Use adjustable equipment for reducing water flow-rates and rinsing pressure as needed for sensitive surfaces.
Rinsing pressures greater than 1000 psi and fan spray tips smaller than 15° may permanently damage sensitive masonry. Water flow-rates less than 6 gallons per minute may reduce cleaning productivity and contribute to uneven cleaning results.
