- 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.
