Then use a double undiluted application, spaced several minutes apart without rinsing in between the applications. Follow with a pressure wash rinse of approximately 1,000 psi to 3,000 psi for the best results. Do not allow product to dry on the surface always rinse thoroughly.

Coverage Rates: Coverage rates vary from 75-250 sq ft/gal depending on the surface porosity, texture and severity of staining.
