Paint Removal

Paint removal is when undesired paint is dissolved with specialist masonry chemicals and thorough hydro cleansing. Once this process is complete the bricks are left undamaged and display their natural colour and beauty.

Paint removal is a crucial process that aims to restore a home or property to its original splendour. To achieve this, we employ a combination of advanced techniques and expertise. When necessary, we utilize a steam pressure washing system in conjunction with carefully selected chemicals to precisely clear the layers of paint, effectively restoring the surface to its original state.

Our extensive experience and deep understanding of surface conservation and restoration allow us to determine the most suitable cleaning solution for each substrate. Whether it’s unsightly graffiti or coats of paint in need of replacement or removal, we possess the proven ability to tackle these challenges with the utmost care, even when working on delicate homes or properties.

At UK Restorations, our paint removal process is meticulous and thorough. Working from a scaffold, we carefully assess targeted areas and implement necessary precautions to safeguard the surroundings. Our specially formulated paint-stripping chemicals are applied with precision, breaking down the paint effectively. A comprehensive wash follows, ensuring the complete removal of dissolved paint. With dedicated expertise and specialized techniques, we are committed to delivering impeccable paint removal results, and restoring your home or property to its original beauty. Trust us to bring your surfaces back to their former glory with our experience and skill.

Looking at the examples of our jobs below, you can see the effect of striped paint on the outside of a building can positively affect the overall appeal. This will raise your property value and saleability.

DOFF is a steam based stone cleaning system able to achieve temperatures of 150°C at the nozzle end. The operator can regulate the temperature and pressure to remove many types of paint or biological matter (mosses, lichens, algae).

DOFF steam cleaning is ideal for the removal of various surface coatings which have become bonded to brick, stone and other substrates and at the same time allows the operator to clean stone without use of chemicals to prolongs the good looks and life of the cleaned surface. The heat of the water also helps to kill the spores of organic matter thus increasing the length of time needed between cleaning. DOFF system is very kind to the substrate that is being cleaned and is therefore liked by listed building officers throughout the country.
