Freshen Up With Paint “N” Peel

The fireplace should be the focal point of your living spaces – not an eyesore. While stained masonry has no impact on a fireplace’s performance, it can have a major impact on the home’s aesthetics. If the masonry surround of your fireplace is stained or discolored from years of exposure to soot, ash, and smoke, this can make the entire fireplace look dirty and dated. Likewise, exterior chimney staining can make a house look older and negatively affect your home’s curb appeal.

In the past, the only ways to clean masonry were to spend hours scrubbing, use harsh and abrasive chemicals, or paint the bricks. Now, homeowners have another powerful and simple choice – Chimney Saver Paint “N” Peel fireplace cleaner.

How is Paint “N” Peel different from other products?

While many interior cleaners are designed for stained masonry, there are significant drawbacks. The harsh chemicals used can affect the air quality in your home. They also have to be left on for days, and they usually require extensive scrubbing to work.

Even the most popular methods of cleaning exterior masonry come at a cost. While power washing exterior bricks and mortar can remove stains, the combination of extreme pressure and moisture can cause serious damage to the masonry. Unlike other cleaning methods, Paint “N” Peel, is environmentally friendly. It does not create harsh chemical odors, scrub-free, and removes stains without damaging the masonry. This makes it the ideal choice for removing both interior and exterior masonry stains.

Unlike many masonry and fireplace cleaners, Paint N Peel does not contain any harsh chemicals or solvents. Not only does this make the product environmentally friendly, but it can also be used inside your home without affecting the air quality or leaving behind a harsh chemical smell.

Outside your home, one of the most common methods for removing chimney stains is power washing. While using a power washer to clean your chimney might remove surface stains, the combination of pressure and water can cause long term water damage to your chimney.

While Paint N Peel can be used on both your interior and exterior masonry, there are restrictions on when it can be applied. Because it can only be applied outdoors when the temperature is between 45 and 95 degrees, spring and fall are often the best time of year to have the product applied.
