Removal paint from wood

how to prepare wood for a new painting

Removing the old cracked paint from a window or furniture is an operation you may face.

We can use different strategies, simply use sandpaper and scrapers or use specific chemicals.

chemical stripper

In the case of chemicals:

  • With a scraper we remove the already detached parts of paint
  • We clean well from dust
  • We apply the special paint stripper
  • Let's act and then with the scraper we remove the detached paint
  • We repeat the operation for the parts not completely detached

In the case of sandpaper:

  • We eliminate the already detached parts
  • Using a sander we remove the still-attached paint using thinner glass sheets
  • We can help in the separation with a special hot air gun

Hot air gun

It's a sort of very powerful hairdryer with metal nozzles.

The different thermal expansion of the paint compared to the layer to which it is applied helps detachment.
