Former Glory: stripping fireplaces to ‘as new’ condition will enhance your home’s interior.

Premium Doors and Furniture provide professional fireplace paint removal services to fully restore them to their original condition. We are passionate about restoring your doors and furniture to their former glory. With fireplaces and fire surrounds, this is no exception. Over the ravages of time, rust may appear on your cast iron fireplaces, making for a shabby appearance. Sometimes, rust can appear on wooden fire surrounds, which necessitates stripping.

Types of fireplace stripping techniques

For fire surrounds, we at Premium Doors and Furniture use the following techniques:

  • Chemical Stripping: for us chemical stripping is the most effective way of removing finishes. It is preferable to sanding the surface alone.
  • Solvent Stripping: of all the furniture stripping methods, this is our preferred one for restoring antiques. It is gentle on the wood.
  • Caustic Stripping: where thick paint is present, we favour caustic stripping. It is non-toxic and gives off less fumes than solvent-based paint stripping solutions.

To restore cast iron fireplaces to their former glory, our tools of the trade include the following:

  • Wire Wool: for scrubbing away any rust;
  • Stripping Knife: for removing dissolved paintwork;
  • White Spirit: to remove any remaining paint residue;
  • Black Grate Polish: to regain its ‘as new’ condition.

To keep your cast iron fireplace in tip-top condition, we recommend using WD-40 to clean the fireplace. For obvious reasons (due to rusting), never use water.
