Sometimes you can't just cover the old layer of paint. For example, if you have an older home, there's a risk that you have lead paint that needs to be removed. Or if you want to add new life to old furniture, the best way is to strip it down to the base material. But stripping the paint yourself can be hazardous, messy, and time-consuming. Find a local paint removal company who can help.

Professionals typically use one of three methods to remove old and cracked paint:

  • Grinding with power sanders or sandblasting
  • Using paint stripping chemicals
  • Applying heat with a heat plate or heat gun.

Each has its advantages and disadvantages. For example, grinding can release dust in the air which is particularly hazardous if lead paint is present. Chemicals can also be hazardous and while there are more environmentally-friendly options available, they tend to be less effective. Heat and chemicals can also present a fire risk.

When hiring a paint removal service, be sure to hire local. With a local pro, there are fewer delays on change orders or project expansions. Local companies also know where to dump toxic residue so you don't have to.

Removing old paint gives your home or furniture a blank canvas. Type in your zip code and HomeAdvisor will find paint stripping services near you.
