What do paint stripping services include?

Paint stripping is a vital part of any refurbishment project, whether you're redoing your bathroom, remodelling your kitchen, or renovating your entire property.

Depending on your preference, your home paint stripper can remove the old paint and finish from a particular surface using a variety of treatments such as solvents, gel-, or paste-based strippers. They can also utilise different techniques as they see fit like scraping, wire brushing, or door dripping.

Here are some common paint stripping services you can get and the inclusions of each:

Wood stripping

Wood stripping is done in three different ways: thermal blasting, chemical stripping, or sandblasting. Whatever your preference, your wood stripping expert always starts by disassembling the pieces to be stripped. 

When scrapping your old paint, they work in sections and get deeper into the tiny groves to make sure that they don't miss any areas. They also apply a second coat in case there are any stubborn areas. Then, they complete your wood stripping service by wiping or brushing away the residue and finally sanding the wood.

It's essential to check your furniture and fixtures after the stripping process. If there are any dents, damages, or any inconsistencies, it's best to get someone to repair your wooden furnishings right away. The purpose is to steer away from any potential problems or early degradations after refurbishing them.

Door paint stripping

Are you thinking of updating your dull-looking door or restoring its original appearance? The ideal way to kick off your project is to strip off its old paint and finish. One of the easiest, most practical ways to do this is through door dipping.

After dismantling or removing the doors from its interior structure, your Tasker can bring it to the nearest door dipping workshop, where they are submerged into a chemical or caustic-based solution to remove the old paint. When the doors are returned to your place, a paint stripper then cleans and hand-strips stubborn stains, and also helps with sanding to achieve a smooth, visually appealing finish.

Fireplace stripping

While most fireplaces tend to develop heavy and unsightly rust spots over time, it doesn't necessarily mean that you should replace it entirely. If your fireplace is still fully functioning and structurally stable, then all it needs is a little stripping and recoating. 

Your Tasker can use the safest paint stripper that won't cause any damage or crack on the frame material. For antiques and fragile fireplaces, they might go for solvent stripping since the process is more gentle than caustic and chemical stripping.

The former stripping process is preferable on durable fireplaces with thicker paints. For a cleaner appearance, your paint stripper can also remove the residue and sand the surface. You can even have it refinished or repainted for a total fireplace transformation!

Highgate Hill QLD, Australia

I’m looking for someone who can strip off the old chipped and rusty paint from 2 metal outdoor chairs. I believe the under layers of the paint contain lead so extra precautions must be taken to remove the paint. I don’t have an appropriate place to do it at my place so i would prefer they are taken away to do the job and drop them back.

Thank you! You did a fantastic job! Very easy to arrange and was a great communicator. Thanks again

External paint removal from Queenslander


Grange QLD, Australia

29th Oct 2020

Photos Now Added. We have a 95 year old home which we will soon be painting. We intend removing all the external paint down to bare weatherboards. Removal will be by heat gun and scraper followed by coarse sanding. We have all the tools, planks and tressels and sandpaper as well as the paint primer. We dont need the whole house done immediately as it can be done in stages to suit availability. You will need to provide your own dust masks, respirator, gloves etc and other PPE as required. Location within 7kms of CBD. I have tested for Lead paint and the result appears negative but I urge anyone interested to use dust mask/respirator.

Ivan is hardworking, polite and gets the job done. I would highly recommend Ivan to anyone looking for someone hardworking and reliable or the ability to diagnose a rare medical condition!!.
