I am working in a wonderful property in the stunning historic Castle Street, Farnham. The property is thought to be dated as early as 1520 and Listed Grade II.
I am decorating A bedroom and ensuite bathroom which features some oak beams.
At some stage in more recent years there was a fire in the building and the beams were scorched black and burned in some places.
My clients would like to find a workable solution to removing the charred surface to both ligten the appearance and to stop the debris that fragments and leaves a mess on the floor.
Does any one have any solutions to this problem?
The obvious would be to wire brush it back but this would be a laborious task to do manually.
Any thoughts would be much apreciated.
I can post some pics tomorrow, but left my camera at work today.
