At Totally Stripped, we deal with many corporate clients, helping Brisbane and Gold Coast businesses with their office and shop defits, demolitions, and strip outs. After impressing them at work, our corporate clients also turn to us for their domestic stripout needs. There are a number of key differences between stripping out your home and your business, differences which should be understood before looking at a potential domestic stripout solution.
The interior of a home has many different areas and some are more prone to requiring stripouts than others. Bathroom stripping and kitchen stripping are most common as these areas are not only in frequent use but are more likely to have fixtures that are out of date and these types of renovations also don’t require building approval. As soon as you consider any renovations to bathrooms or kitchens, almost immediately you must bare in mind that this means floor waterproofing and floor grinding, two very messy and inconvenient processes.
While a bedroom might only have cupboards and lighting, bathrooms and kitchens will have sinks, tiles, and piping to consider on the floor and on the walls. Tile removal in bathrooms can be tricky as most Brisbane and Gold Coast homes require that tiles be painstakingly removed from a concrete or cement board using specialised equipment, after which it must be ground down or sanded using industrial grade machinery.
Unlike in an office or shop defit, the bathroom and kitchen of a home are high traffic areas, meaning a total rip up of the floors is often necessary is often very messy but you still have to live there. Any mess that is created here (as well as downtime required) will have a much bigger impact on the family. Time is imperative, as is the clean-up process afterwards.
There are many businesses that offer tile stripping, but unlike Totally Stripped, few of them can meet the promise to take as little time as possible and to take all their mess with them, leaving a brand new stripped area that other specialists can immediately start to work with.
Even the slightest amount of mess left behind in a bathroom or kitchen stripping scenario can easily be tracked across the home, causing a hazard and leaving you to clean up before you can even start thinking about refitting your bathroom or kitchen. During this time, you will not be able to use your bathroom or kitchen at all, adding a further inconvenience.
It’s for this reason if you’re looking for a domestic stripout solution, you need to make sure that your provider can offer you a service that takes into account the unique needs of your family home and when stripping out the area, take into consideration that unlike an office or shop, people actually live there.
