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!
