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!

Wrought iron fence rust and paint removal


Surry Hills, New South Wales, Australia

17th Sep 2020

Old wrought iron fence on a terrace house needs to be cleaned up ready for painting. I've done half of it, so the only bit remaining is the linear 5m in the photo. You will need a wire brush attachment on an angle grinder or a sandblaster. Please note this is only for the paint and rust removal, not the painting itself. The plants will be clear so you'll have easy access around the fence. Most of the paint is already loose.

Paint removal and deep cleaning/washing


Glebe NSW, Australia

9th Jul 2020

Please see the photos attached. I painted my kitchen myself and as you see in the photos, I have left paint on the ceiling light and the floor etc. I need someone who can completely and safely, without leaving any scratches or marks, remove the paint. Also, the racks in the kitchen have a build-up of (cooking) oil and dust on them so they have to be cleaned thoroughly. I once washed them with dishwashing liquid but the germs are too tough so they probably need strong chemicals. The job must be done on the exact date I put in the ad.

Hi all. I need the paint removed from my exterior brickwork. It doesn’t matter if a tiny bit is left. But would like at least 90% removal. After you have removed the paint I will ‘bag’ the brickwork. So if some mortar is removed in the process that’s okay. But would like the bricks to be undamaged. Total space is approx 20m2. Job can happen anytime. In the quote please write: -when you are available -how you will do it Thanks Michael

Paint stripping from a fireplace and mantle in bedroom in Newtown. I’ve removed roughly half of it but it’s become clear I probably don’t have the tools or skill necessary to complete it. Looks to be about 4 layers of previous paint - looking to get it back to the base wood so I can varnish it

Fabio was prompt, polite and very knowledgeable. He brought his own tools, was very tidy and the work was of exceptional quality. I would happily recommend him to anyone and use his services again

I need paint stripping


Petersham NSW 2049, Australia

3rd Sep 2020

I have a timber internal bannister that I started to paint strip (see 1st photo) but it's taking too long and difficult to get off the spindles. Handrail and spindles to be done - not the stairs themselves. So just the parts to the railing in the photos (one long, one short and one really short). The 1st photo shows the view from the bottom. End result is to have the natural timber look - so quote is to remove all the paint on rail and spindle (not the stairs themselves)
