We use different methods in the shop based on the current state and construction of your furniture. One method is using a paste-based stripper that will release the existing finish allowing our team to preserve thin veneers that may have been used during construction. The other method is using our commercial stripping facility. This process is called the flow-over process. Our team suits up with masks and protective body suits and uses a brush that is continually being supplied with a commercial stripping chemical that flows over your piece. Once stripped, the old finish is collected and sent off for HAZMAT disposal and your furniture is run through a process that cleans any remaining chemical off the bare wood.
