  • How do you clean a surface with Vulcaseal Natural Stone Deep Cleaner? (Close Answer)

    Vulcaseal always recommend trying a test area first before cleaning a larger area.

Leave this to act for 2-3 minutes and then begin scrubbing with a hard bristle brush, in a circular hand motion.

    Once scrubbed, leave this for approximately 5-10 minutes and then scrub the surface clean with water – hot if possible.  A pressure washer is also a good method of rising off.  You can then soak the water up with a sponge or equivalent.
