We perform complete restoration on all types of furniture and woodworks.

Below is a Step by Step Restoration performed by BMD Workbench.

After sitting in the stripping tray for appox. an hour
it is ready to be rinsed.

Step 4
We powerwash with water to rinse and neutralize the remover starting from the bottom working our way up.
