Stripping furniture, especially chairs, is a slow, messy and laborious task that burns your hands. It's now not even possible for members of the public (because it's illegal!) to buy paint stripper that actually works. So that means if you've got a hope of getting the paint off, you need someone with access to the bad stuff that can get do it. And that's us!
At least half of the items we're asked to strip have already been started by the owner, who's given in - defeated and tired, wishing they'd never begun. I'm not exaggerating.
All the stripping we carry out is done by hand and will then need to be scraped, sanded and prepared prior to refinishing. It's not so much that it's difficult (it can be) it's that it takes patience and that's what you pay us for.
Stripping of polished finishes should be considered a last resort, when the finish is worn or damaged beyond repair.
nB. Very few wooden items can be dipped in a tank - not something we do - and must be made from pine if they are not to be damaged. All other dipped timber is discoloured and glued joints frequently eaten away.
