2.

All cleaning methods must be followed by a thorough rinse with water.

3.

Avoid applying cleaners in direct, hot sunshine

Certain household cleaners, powdered abrasives, steel wool and industrial cleaners can cause damage and discoloration and are not recommended. Dry cleaning fluids and lacquer solvents should not be used as they will remove the printed pattern and gloss. Waxes should be used with caution. Many contain dyes or solvents that can permanently damage the protective coating.

5.

Power washing can remove dirt and debris. It is not intended for removing embedded stains. Set at 1,500 psi (maximum), hold nozzle 12 inches from surface. Do not use at seams, railing attachment, caulking or house trims.
