- BEHR PREMIUM® NO. 63 All-In-One Wood Cleaner MUST be used following NO. 64 to clean, brighten & neutralize wood.
- When NO. 64 is not needed, use a product such as NO. 63 to clean and brighten the wood surface and to remove light to medium stains caused by mold, mildew, algae & fungus. On new wood, use a product such as NO. 63 to remove mill glaze and open the pores of the wood.
- Rinse thoroughly and allow to dry before coating.
- Lightly sand any remaining wood fibers/fuzz.
- Must apply between 40-90˚F (4.5-32˚C). Do not use if rain is expected within 24 hours.
- The wood surface must be completely dry before application. Intermix multiple containers to ensure color uniformity. DO NOT THIN PRODUCT.

- Maintenance re-coating may be achieved by applying 2 coats at a spread rate of 200-400 sq. ft. (18-37 m2) per gallon over a clean, sound surface.

- Thoroughly seal the ends of the boards and all porous areas such as knots with several thin coats.
- Maintain a wet edge when applying. Back-brush during all application methods. Apply product end-to-end or to board lengths to prevent lap marks.
