Professional Paint Removal 

 - 

Doff Steam Cleaning

 Efficiently restoring substrates, ranging from brick to render, to their former glory.

Here at Spectrum, we are paint removal experts. Whether you require graffiti removal or would simply like to breathe a new lease of life into your property, our experienced team of restoration specialists are able to efficiently clean, preserve and restore substrates ranging from brick to render to their former glory. 

Indeed, that is why we were delighted to have been called in to help save the day when our client, a leading construction company, painted the numbers of car parking spaces incorrectly onto the newly laid coating of a car park. 

The Project

To remove the paint from the newly laid coating of the car park, they required paint removal experts who could effectively remove the paint without causing any damage to the new surface coating – all within two days. 

As experienced paint removal professionals, we were confident that we would be able to not only meet but exceed their requirements and get the job done on time and without causing any damage to the brickwork.

 

The Site

As this car park was built over multiple stories, every floor we would move up, our equipment would lose around one-third of a bar of pressure. For example, on the third floor of the car park, our equipment will have one full bar less of pressure. To work around this challenge, our team had to calculate the pressure loss we would experience on each floor and strategise a plan on the pressure they would have to set our equipment to.

To succeed in their mission, they brought not only their highly specialist DOFF cleaning system, but as there was no water source, they also had to bring a self-contained vehicle with a 1,000-litre tank of water.

In doing this, they were able to remove the paint from the car park in a matter of days and save the client from a potentially very costly mistake. Indeed, the freshly laid surface was successfully restored to its former glory with all paint traces removed.

The Logistics

This paint removal project was both challenging and incredibly satisfying. After discovering us online, the client urgently got in touch with us to ask if we could remove the paint within a couple of days. However, they had no water source and had just laid a new coating on the brickwork that needed to remain intact. 

To add to the challenge, there was also a large amount of distance from where it was possible to install our machines and where we needed to work to remove the paint.

Thankfully, our team of expert paint removers were able to utilise their special training in how to use the state-of-the-art DOFF Integra cleaning steam system to successfully remove the paint from the brickwork and return the stone to its optimum health – without even the smallest blemish. 

 

Doff Cleaning Experts

With no time to spare, our highly experienced team of paint removal experts had to think quickly to ensure this project was completed on time and to our incredibly high standards. 

With a freshly laid surface that needed to remain intact, no water source, limited accessibility to the site and only two days to complete the project, the odds were stacked against us – to say the least. 

However, our team of operatives were able to quickly and efficiently problem solve and begin working on the project within a day. Not only did they bring their own water source – a self-contained vehicle with a 1,000-litre tank of water – but they used their professional training from Stone Health on using their the state-of-the-art DOFF steam cleaning system to remove the paint with ease. By using extremely heated steam instead of pressure, up to 1700 degrees Celsius, our industrial DOFF machine was also able to remove the paint without causing any damage the car park!

Delivering Client Satisfaction

There is no better feeling than a job well done. And not only was the client delighted with the end result, but so we were. Thanks to our wonderful team of paint removal experts, there was not one splash of paint left on the freshly laid car park surface and it was ready to be painted over the very next day.

With so many constraints and limited time, the project was an unusual challenge. However, we overcame it and delivered a result that not only exceeded expectations but that the client was delighted with.   Indeed, being able to deliver another exceptional result to a satisfied client is always a significant highlight of any project we complete.
