Surfaces must be clean, dry and free from loose and flaking material, dirt, grease etc. Repairs should be carried out prior to painting. Areas contaminated with fungal or algal growth should be treated with a fungicidal wash or with 25% household bleach before painting. Surfaces previously painted with oil-based materials should be lightly abraded before painting.
