Furniture Stripping Questions

The prospect of stripping your old furniture may seem daunting at first and you may have lots of questions before beginning. You’ll have to do research online or at the library to learn the techniques associated with furniture refurbishing, repair, and restoration. You can also take your chairs and tables to an antique dealer or furniture repair specialist to find out just what’s involved. Have professionals do the work or perform it yourself. Either way, here are some questions you can ask.

  • What products can I safely use on my old furniture to strip it?
    Many products used to strip furniture contain harmful chemicals, so be sure to take the proper safety precautions, such as wearing gloves and a mask. You can use polyurethane, turpentine, and naphtha to remove old finishes.

  • Once I fully strip the furniture, is it ready for a finish?
    Once you go through the stripping process, such as cleaning, paint removal and then sanding, you can apply the stain or new paint you have in mind. If there are repairs to be done, perform these after stripping and before finishing.

  • Do you have a specialty?
    Many furniture specialists focus on one area, such as antiques, which are generally defined as items over 100 years old. Others care to focus on the basic recycle component of repairing and refurbishing furniture so as to give pieces new life.

  • Can I remove discoloration in the wood via stripping?
    This is possible although not always fail proof. Some stains, such as ink or motor oil, are permanent, while others can be bleached out, such as stains caused by water-based minerals.

    A company that does furniture stripping will have the hardware and protective supplies needed to complete the job. Some companies will have a location for customers to bring the wood to, while others can come to the furniture's actual location. Cleaning supplies for different finishes will be available from stores that sell furniture stripping hardware.

    Wooden bed frames, desks, chairs, and tables are a few items that may need old finish and paint stripped off for restoration treatments. Kitchen cabinets and antique wood can be sanded by a power sander or steel wool in order to remove dirt, polish, stain, and paint. In order to successfully clean the surface, the repair team must use certified tools.

    Contractors can receive on-the-job training to learn how to work with chemicals that can be used when stripping a piece of furniture. They will follow strict preparation and restoration guidelines in order to be successful and have the wood look like new again. They will purchase the tools they need including gloves, power sanders, varnish, stain, and paint.

    Stores that sell furniture stripping tools can help customers learn about the different finishes they sell, the best way to remove old paint, and how to prevent the finish from crackling. They can help customers determine what finish will help prolong the life of outdoor wooden furniture and what maintenance will need to be done when the furniture isn't used outside. Stores will also have the chemicals needed to clean wooden surfaces without doing any damage to the finish.
