DIY Doctor..Preparing surfaces for painting with Grime Go

Artex was the most widely used covering in the UK for many years but it’s been out of fashion for a long time now. The trouble is getting it off has been a nightmare, especially if it was applied in the 70’s when there is very likely to have been some lead mixed in with it. X-Tex is water based, solvent free Artex remover which (as the video shows) is simply brilliant.

It dissolves the Artex in minutes, allows easy, safe removal and doesn’t damage the surface you are working on. Simply wash the surface down after you have removed the artex and you are ready to paint.
