How to Prepare & Clean


To help protect your fence from the elements, preparation and cleaning any untreated surfaces is essential.

  • Bare or untreated wood should be pre-treated with an appropriate wood preserver to prevent rot and decay.
  • Surfaces should be dry and free from dirt. Remove any algae, lichen, fungi or moss using an appropriate fungicidal wash.
  • Wood previously stained, painted, or varnished should be stripped back to bare wood.
  • After use remove paint from the brush with a cloth and then wash with water.

How to Protect & Revive

  • Try a test area first to ensure adequate adhesion.
  • If using more than one can it is advisable to mix them together in a larger container.
  • If you want to add colour to your garden we would recommend using Cuprinol Garden Shades. This gives a beautiful, long lasting colour and protection to all garden wood.
