- We can dip and strip the metal part of the fireplace
- Metals: strip really well especially fireplaces, gates and ornate items as the caustic
liquid can reach everywhere, but note: caustic doesn’t remove rust
- We can dip, strip, neutralise, clean, sand and wax/oil the wood surround as well.
First we dip the surround in a warm caustic solution for about 30
to 45 minutes (or longer, but only if necessary) to let the residue softened and pressure wash
it to completely remove the debris. The next step is neutralising the item to a neutral PH
level. For this we use acetic acid. The item is first entirely sprayed with acetic acid solution
and then stored in a dehumidified room where it is left to naturally and completely dry out.
Once the item is completely dry we continue with sanding the surface until smooth and ready for
the wax or oil finish in the shade of your choice.
We can dip and strip other items from metal, the price depends on
the size, please check our quote page for more information.
