The house painters are highly skilled paint strippers, experienced in safe, eco-friendly paint stripping.

The house painters have invested in the latest technology of paint stripping equipment imported form America called the Paintshaver Pro. The Paintshaver Pro strips away multiple layers of paint at a time and collects it all into a vacuum system for easy and safe removal. The advantages of the using The Paintshaver Pro system are:

  • The Paintshaver Pro System uses no chemicals or heat.
  • The Paintshaver Pro can Safely Strip Lead Based Paint.
  • The Paintshaver Pro collects all dust and debri into a vacuum system for easy and safe disposable.
  • The Paintshaver Pro System gives a superior finish.
  • The Painshaver Pro System saves both time and money.

Paint removal is a potentially hazardous undertaking – if it is done incorrectly, there can be long-lasting effects. The house painters take this area of the decorating process very seriously. We ensure that both our clients and staff are safe and protected at every stage of the process.

But knowledge is only half the equation. As in any specialist field, specialised equipment is needed to do the work. This includes encapsulated stripping machines, stripping products and specific vacuum sanders designed to minimise dust. All this costs money, but people stripping paint without these tools are endangering not only themselves, but also their clients and neighbours.

What makes paint stripping dangerous?

The basic danger with stripping paint lies in the type of paint that is being stripped. If it is lead based, then doing the stripping incorrectly can lead to lead poisoning.

What is the history of lead-based paint?

Many homes built before 1980 were painted with lead-based paint. Over time, more and more coats of paint have been applied over these original lead paints – sometimes as many as twenty coats!
With the increasing weight of the paint, and because paint itself has a limited life, the original lead-based paint undercoat has given up holding onto your weatherboards. It starts to fall away and lead-filled paint chips fall to the ground. These paint chips can leach lead into the soil and if picked up by children, or eaten by pets can cause lead poisoning.

What is the best way to remove lead-based paint?

Is all paint stripping dangerous?

The paint on your house may need to be removed because of bad preparation on a previous job, or possible bubbling. This paint may not be lead based. The best way to evaluate this is by doing a lead test, which the house painters do on any property as standard practice.
