Top Paint Stripping related questions

Do I need to provide tools or equipment for my paint stripping service?

You can, especially if you have them ready and on-hand. Otherwise, your paint stripper can bring the necessary tools needed for your paint stripping service. They'll most likely need a putty knife, paint scraper, and wire brush. A good sander material like a power disk sander or a manual sanding block is also required to smoothen and prepare the surface for repainting. For additional materials like a paint stripper treatment, you can ask your paint stripper to pick them up from the nearest hardware store.

What happens if I skip paint stripping?

Skipping a paint stripping compromises your restoration project. It causes inconsistent and uneven finishes, as well as early flaking and cracking, leading to costly maintenance and repairs. More than just removing the old pains, paint stripping also helps eliminate dust and grease, prolonging the life of your furniture, walls, or fireplaces. It also removes traces of unsafe lead-based paint in your home, which can compromise you and your family's health.

How long does it take to strip paint?

It depends on the type of paint stripper and the structure of your furniture, fixtures, or walls. Some paint removals only take a few minutes before they fully adhere to the surface, while some take longer to dry. Some paint strippers may have to work longer, about two to three more days, to completely clean and scrape, dry, and smoothen your interior pieces. For a more accurate estimation, feel free to coordinate with your Tasker.

What are the types of paint strippers?

There are two basic types of paint strippers: solvent-based strippers which are gentler, and caustic strippers which are more heavy-duty. The former removes paint by releasing the bond of water and oil-based paint from the surface, ideal for sensitive furniture and fixtures. Meanwhile, the latter breaks down the chemicals of the old overlay, which is more effective if you have multiple and thicker layers of paint. Heat guns are also used as an alternative.

Can I DIY a paint stripping project?

Paint stripping isn't something you should DIY. Some paints can be very hazardous, so it's best to leave this task with the pros instead. They know their way around the safest approach to almost any type of paint. Expert paint strippers can also suggest great alternatives to make the job easier and more economical so that you won't have to worry about overspending.

How long do I need to wait before repainting a stripped surface?

Typically, it shouldn't take too long before you can repaint a stripped surface. You only need to make sure that your furniture or fixtures have fully cleared and dried out with no underlying moisture. It's also essential to remove any dirt or grease if you want to avoid paint failure. For best results, you can check the instructions provided by the manufacturer. You can also directly consult your Tasker and get recommendations from them.

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!

Kitchen has paint on approximately half of the walls. One side is entirely paint free due to built in fixtures. Task is to strip the existing paint off the kitchen walls and prime the walls. I started to complete the task myself but discovered that the previous owners did not prime the walls before applying the current paint. Ceiling and skirting boards unaffected. Only half room is painted. Kitchen size 3.50m x 3.09m. I have primer concentrate. I have new paint to apply to the primed surfaces once dry.

Thanks for all your communication and for all your help, Alfred and Kevin. Job well done. Will definitely be in touch in the future if/when I need further assistance.
