When it comes to preparing exterior wood surfaces for painting or other finishing, the proper regimen can mean the difference between a job that's smooth, long-lasting, and professional-looking versus one that quickly shows wear and tear. The pros know that prep determines the topcoat performance, but some homeowners skip or skimp on prep because it can be tedious and time-consuming. BEHR is changing all that.

They're easy to use, biodegradable and clean off easily with just water. By improving product speed and effectiveness and reducing the number of steps and products needed for prep, BEHR helps you get the perfect foundation for better adhesion and complete compatibility with all BEHR Exterior Stains and Waterproofers. Try the following BEHR products for beautiful results:
- BEHR Premium Mildew Stain Remover removes severe mildew, mold, algae and fungus stains from wood and composite decks, brick, stucco and vinyl or aluminum siding. It's an enzyme-based, bleach-free cleaner that can be used on exterior surfaces or diluted for use on interior surfaces, and it won't whiten or damage wood.
- BEHR Premium 2-in-1 Wood Prep cleans and brightens exterior wood surfaces prior to applying natural finishes, paints, or stains. Because it also removes stains caused by mold, mildew, algae, and fungus, as well as tannin bleed, rust and red clay stains on wood, composite decking, and masonry, it can save homeowners a step in prepping. Enzyme-based, it can even be used to clean decking and vinyl and aluminum siding.
- BEHR Premium Stain and Finish Stripper removes all types of old weathered stains, finishes, and sealers, whether they are oil- or water-based or even 100% acrylic. It's ideal for horizontal or vertical exterior surfaces such as decks, siding, fences, shakes and shingles.
