Removing Plaster and Paint From Dado Rails and Skirting Boards

Postby LG1406 » Wed Oct 09, 2019 7:12 am

I have recently had a bedroom completely plastered but some of the plaster has got on my my recently stripped down dado rails and skirting board.

Is it a simple wash down with hot water and soap to remove or should it be something else?

Both the skirting board and dado rails have detail in them where it has been difficult to remove paint- I have sanded down and used a heat gun where I can but there are difficult areas to reach- would nitromors be effective here? The same would apply to the bedroom door as well.

The plan is to have them as a natural finish (with a simple coat of wood varnish over it)

I have some images of what it currently look like.
