We recommend using a garden hose to clean dust and pollens off of your exterior shutters. Our alkyd enamel is hard enough to take simple watering but we don't recommend using a power washer as it can dent the finish and the cedar.
Depending on the direction your shutters face and their exposure to sunlight, they may lose their gloss level over the years. When your finish begins to dull you may need to recoat with the same alkyd enamel coating we use, Sherwin Williams Industrial Enamel. And to keep a fine finsih, a sprayed finish is prefered over rolling or brushing.
