When cleaning smoke damaged surfaces, experience has shown that the most effective cleaning is achieved by the use of Resene Emulsifiable Solvent Cleaner. This is scrubbed onto affected areas, where it will dissolve up most of the solvent-soluble stains. The affected areas are then washed with water, which emulsifies the stain-laden solvent and dissolves the majority of water-soluble stains.
Despite the above washing procedure, remnants of stains will be left on the surface. If a solventbased finish is required, such as Resene Super Gloss Enamel, use a waterborne undercoat as the first coat, such as Resene Quick Dry Acrylic Primer Undercoat. Where a waterborne finish is required, such as Resene Zylone Sheen or Resene Lumbersider, use a solventbased undercoat first. Resene Aluminium Wood Primer is particularly effective.
