Remove emulsion paint spots from laminate floor


(darlic) #1

Continuing the discussion from Trouble with painted plaster:

On the laminate floor there’s emulsion spots. Not sure how long they have been there, but told the customer I would remove. I was thinking methylated spirit,or Krudkutter, or warm soapy water with a plastic blade.

Thanks guys for any help.

They are all feasible ways. If it is like overspray spots from a roller, simple soapy water on the floor and then a rough green dish pan rag can sometimes work as well as anything . (Start simple and then bring out the big guns, if that doesn’t work.

Slow acting paint stripper dabbed carefully onto the top of a dried blob is another way to soften the paint.

The main trick is to pinch up any wet paint, not spread it out.

Anyone heard of super strength upvc cleaner paint remover, if not its worth keeping a pot in the van, it can be bought from decorating direct. I have been working on a job where a previous painter ,left gloss paint all over the door handles and laminate flooring this stuff worked a treat, the brass handles come up like brand new ,and removed gloss on flooring with a bit of contact time with ease, going to try on conservatory very soon and will let everyone see the before after results

Have a look at the Fluxaf Graffi Clean. I have recently supplied some for a cleaning company given the task of cleaning up a large number of flats after some over enthusiastic decorators had been in residence. Very effective, and great feedback and equally as good as Krudkutter.
