Say Goodbye to Hearth Stains with Paint N Peel

Fireplaces can add charm and character to any home; many older or historic houses have beautiful, stately fireplaces that are the focal points of the home. However, dirty or discolored masonry can turn a focal point into an eyesore.

Many times, stained masonry does not reflect problems with fireplace performance or efficiency. Despite this, dirty interior masonry can affect how homeowners feel about – and how often they use – their fireplace.

Cleaning fireplace masonry used to involve hours of scrubbing with harsh chemicals. Now, homeowners have an alternative with Chimney Saver Paint “N” Peel fireplace cleaner. This fast and easy to use product can help restore original masonry in less time – and with less elbow grease.

How Paint “N” Peel worksSay goodbye to stained fireplaces with Paint N Peel

The Paint “N” Peel  process is easy and involves minimal disruption to your day to day life. The fireplace technician begins by applying a thick coat of Paint “N” Peel using special brushes. After application, it is left to cure and dry for 6-12 hours.

Because harsh chemicals and solvents are not used in Paint “N” Peel, there is no need to worry about leaving your home or avoiding the living room or hearth room after it has been applied. The product is environmentally friendly and has no unpleasant odor; this allows you to go about your normal routine without the air quality being affected.

As Paint “N” Peel dries, it forms a thick film. This can be easily peeled away from the brick after the product has completely cured. As it is peeled away it takes away years of staining from smoke, ash, and soot, leaving behind masonry that is restored to its former beauty. While mostly used on interior masonry, Paint “N” Peel can also be used on chimney exteriors as well as other masonry structures.

What sets Paint “N” Peel apart

Removing stains from masonry used to involve buckets of harsh chemicals, hours of scrubbing, or being forced to paint over the original bricks. Harsh solvents often affect the air quality in your home; many need hours of setting time, require windows and doors to be opened to increase airflow, or leave behind lingering odors that affect air quality. Likewise, painting over the brick cannot be undone; while this covers the staining, paint also permanently alters the original brick.

Many homeowners try to clean exterior masonry using a power washer. While this is often able to remove stains, it can cause significant damage to the masonry. The combination of water pressure and moisture can cause cracks and holes to form in the masonry, leading to potential long-term damage. Paint “N” Peel is an easy to use, non-damaging alternative to other masonry cleaning methods.

If the masonry of your fireplace is stained, there are alternatives to painting the brick or resorting to caustic cleaners. For more information on how Paint “N” Peel can remove stains from your fireplace or chimney, contact Clean Sweeps of Michigan today.

Let Paint N Peel Do The Hard Work!

Even a beautiful fireplace can seem dated if the surrounding masonry is dirty. However, cleaning masonry can be a work-intensive, time-consuming process that requires the use of harsh chemicals. Likewise, painting the fireplace may cover the staining but permanently changes the masonry.

Homeowners now have an alternative to spending hours scrubbing their fireplace’s masonry. Paint N Peel gives homeowners the ability to quickly and easily remove years of staining from smoke, ash, and soot from their masonry without using harsh chemicals.

What is Paint N Peel?

Paint N Peel, a Chimney Saver product, can be used to remove masonry staining without damaging or changing the original color of the underlying bricks and mortar. With a formula specifically designed for removing stains caused by smoke and soot, Paint N Peel helps the natural masonry shine.

Paint N Peel vs Other Cleaning Methods

Paint N Peel differs from other masonry cleaning methods. First, it does not use harsh chemicals. This is beneficial when cleaning interior masonry as it will not affect the air quality in your home or cause breathing issues for those with allergies or asthma. Likewise, its easy to apply formula eliminates the need to spend hours on end scouring and scrubbing.

Power washing removes stains from exterior masonry and causes significant damage to bricks and mortar. While this cleaning method may remove stains, the extreme pressure from the water can cause serious damage to the masonry. Paint N Peel is effective at removing stains without damaging the underlying masonry.

Many homeowners choose to paint their masonry when it becomes stained. While this covers the stains, the paint will irreparably cover the brick; this will prevent you – and any future owners of your home – from enjoying the natural masonry, as well as affect the naturally porous properties of the bricks.

How Paint N Peel Works

Paint N Peel is fast, effective, and easy to use. A thick coat of the product is applied to the stained masonry using product-specific brushes. This covers every nook, crevice, and cranny of the bricks and mortar. The Paint N Peel then cures and sets for between 6 and 12 hours.

As it dries, the Paint N Peel forms a nontoxic film that easily peels away from the masonry. When peeled away, the product will also remove years of staining and leave the masonry looking restored to its original beauty.

.Paint N Peel can be used on masonry both inside and outside your home. However, there are some restrictions. The product should only be applied when the temperature is between 45 and 95 degrees. Therefore, only use Paint N Peel on exterior masonry during the milder months of spring and fall.

You don’t have to live with a dirty fireplace or stained chimney. To restore the natural beauty of your masonry, contact Clean Sweeps of Michigan to schedule your next appointment or to learn more about Paint N Peel!
