How to Remove Water Stains from a Table

Before you call us to address water stains on your furniture, first try the following.To remove white rings left by wet glasses on wood furniture, mix equal parts vinegar and olive oil and apply it with a soft cloth while moving with the wood grain. Use another clean, soft cloth to shine it up. To get white rings off leather furniture, dab them with a sponge soaked in full-strength white vinegar.

If you can get it acceptable, we can do a professional repair on your next scheduled refinishing slot.

To Paint Alluminum Window Frames & Sliding Doors, or Not

Aluminum window frames and sliding doors should not be painted because most frames are anodized and paint will not adhere well. Most window frames have stainless steel screws in them and the dissimilar metals cause galvanic corrosion. If the window frames are anodized, don't paint them. Instead, the frames should be removed before painting. If the frames are in poor condition, they should be removed, stripped, sanded and repainted separately.

Plastic Parts should also be removed before painting, even if you are going to paint the plastic parts. The reason is that painting over the stainless screws will only result in corrosion and flaking.

Painting over caulking will result in a total mess. Caulking is soft and the paint is hard; therefore the paint will crack and begin flaking away wherever it is laid over caulking. For this reason, all caulking must be stripped off prior to painting, and recaulked afterwards.
