5. How can I remove mildew from wood before applying Hemp Shield?

To get rid of mildew on wood, wash the affected area with a mixture of one part water and three parts liquid bleach. Avoid adding ammonia or detergents to the mixture. Before applying Hemp Shield Deck Finish, give the wood a thorough scrub and rinse and let it dry.

6. Does using Hemp Shield Deck Finish come with a lead warning?

Yes, there is a lead warning. Lead dust can be released during the removal of old paint or finish. Lead dust is toxic. It can lead to major health problems, particularly in young children. It is essential to take appropriate safety precautions and measures when handling surfaces that might contain materials containing lead.

7. What are the application methods for Hemp Shield Deck Finish?

Applying Hemp Shield Deck Finish can be done with a brush, roller, foam brush, or airless/traditional sprayers. For best results, apply the product within the suggested temperature and humidity range and stir well before using.

8. How should I handle extra material or overspray when using Hemp Shield?

As soon as Hemp Shield penetrates the wood, remove it with a rag, dry brush, or roller to avoid problems like uneven drying or discoloration from excess material. Hemp Shield may seem milky when applied, but as it absorbs, it will turn clear.

9. How is Hemp Shield different from other wood protectants?

Hemp Shield Deck Finish sticks out because it preserves the natural appearance of the wood by soaking into it from the inside out. Hemp Shield provides a more environmentally friendly method and a thinner surface film than conventional finishes, which form a surface shell.

10. Is Hemp Shield safe to use on all types of wood?

Depending on the kind of wood, its porosity, age, species, and environmental factors, Hemp Shield’s effectiveness may differ. For optimal effects, it is best to let the wood determine how much Hemp Shield is used.
