pests or other contamination which reduce adhesion of the surface. Remove lime, cement or mortar
flakes, if they will be left they will stain the wood and may also influence the durability of applied
surfaces. Remove knots (lack fill with clean wood) or leave them, but protect with special chemical
agents. Defects, losses should be filled with wood; damages, cracks should be filled with putty for
wood in colour which is slightly lighter than required colour. For mould removal and surface cleaning
it is recommended to use Tikkurila Homeenpoisto mould removal solution. All previously painted,
stained and filled surfaces, must be sanded and evened to enable wood to absorb the product. If
necessary, remove totally the whole coat. In case of painting of old surfaces, it is recommended to
