How to remove paint from wooden stair balustrades

Lacklustre painted wooden balustrades can detract from the overall attractive look of your staircase and home. As a pivotal feature in many houses’ entrance hallways wooden balustrades form the focal integral part between stairs and handrail that attracts visitors immediate attention and prompts an instant impact. There is only one way to ensure the impression is positive and that is to maintain the paint finish to the highest standard. Remediating the decorative deficit presents the initial problem of removing the old layer of paint in a fast, safe and efficient manner. The objective of the exercice is to prepare the object surface to receive a new coat of paint. To achieve that end the surface must be prepared to the highest standard of cleanliness so the paint sticks without rippling or blemish. Traditionally painters had several methods for doing so, unfortunately all with their own disadvantages. These included the use of a Blowtorch to heat the paint – a laborious, time consuming and uneconomical solution. Another method is the use of paint stripper which can emit noxious fumes and may require several applications to completely remove stubborn layers of paint. The third method involves the mechanical use of sanders, both manual and power driven, which spew clouds of unhealthy residual dust that can cause respiratory and eye stinging problems. So painters awaited a new magical formula that would eliminate the failings of those tried and tested paint removing products.
