Depending on degree of cleaning needed, power wash or hose loose dirt off of the mouldings. If using a power washer, be sure to test the pressure setting and nozzle first to ensure that the surface of the mouldings will not be damaged. Other cleaning methods include using a soft cloth and a mixture of mild detergent. Some people have found the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser to work on pencil or other black marks. Other methods include mild household spray cleaner like Simple Green or Krud Kutter Cleaner/Degreaser, Oxiclean, or denatured alcohol. When using cleaners other than a mixture of mild detergent and water, it is best to test on a small area or a scrap piece of BOTO Mouldings, to make sure it does not harm the surface or damage the product’s appearance.

You will want to use the same fasteners you would use for installing wood trim and siding. They should be stainless steel or hot dipped galvanized and long enough to penetrate the substrate a minimum of 1-1/2”. For best results, use fasteners designed for wood trim and wood siding. These fasteners have a thinner shank, blunt point, and full round head. Standard nail guns work well with BOTO Mouldings. If use pneumatic tools, use a fastener with a full round head and set the pressure so the fastener goes just beneath the surface of the BOTO board. IMPORTANT: Staples, brads, and wire nails should never be used. These products have shanks that are too small in diameter to control the thermal expansion and contraction properties of BOTO Mouldings.
