1. Clean the surface with a bucket of soapy water and sponge to remove any dirt and oils before painting. Let dry.
2. Sanding down the surface is essential to removing paint build up. Use a sanding block in circular motions to remove paint build up on the surface. Make sure to wipe off the excess dust once finished. We recommend using a damp rag.
3. Use painter’s tape to protect the trim of the doghouse while working on the siding of the doghouse.
WARNING! Removal of old paint by sanding, scraping or other means may generate dust or fumes that contain lead. Exposure to lead dust or fumes may cause brain damage or other adverse health effects, especially in children or pregnant women. Controlling exposure to lead or other hazardous substances requires the use of proper protective equipment, such as a properly fitted respirator (NIOSH approved) and proper containment and cleanup. For more information, call the National Lead Information Center at 1-800-424-LEAD (in US) or contact your local health authority.
