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.

Because there are no harsh chemicals, the air quality in your home will not be affected as it dries.

Once cured, Paint “N” Peel forms a thick film on the masonry’s exterior. Your fireplace professional can then easily peel away the product from the brick. As it is peeled away, Paint “N” Peel can removes years of stains from ash, soot, and smoke to reveal  the beautiful, original masonry underneath.

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.
