Question:


We just discovered that our contractor used CWF exterior to paint the Interior of our log home. The CWF clearly says only use on exterior--should we remove--corbn blast the interior or will the toxic properties of CWF exterior go away?

Answer:

I would not be happy! CWF never really gets dry to the touch. It will be hard to keep the dust out of it. Corn blasting is not a good way to strip interiors. I would recommend sanding it for a smooth finish for easy cleaning in the future.
