When a mud-laden football is hit on your new unsealed plaster, it’s disastrous. However, it can be repaired because most natural plasters can be easily repairable. While natural plaster is easier to get damaged, it’s also easier to repair without breaking into sweat. But what happens when the stain is on the lime plaster wall? Well, it’s little difficult to remove stains and marks from lime plaster, but there are ways to get rid of it. Also, the harder the plaster is, the more difficult to remove. On the other hand, if there’s any texture on the surface, any blemish can be seen easily. Being a reliable plasterer in Gold Coast, we know how to deal with such plaster repairing needs at home- but nothing equals the quality of a professional plastering service in Gold Coast.
Let’s take a look at it:
1. If there are pencil marks and other stains, a simple pencil eraser can help. In case of old stubborn marks, using chemical stain removal can help to a great extent. If you want to go for DIY, use a wet sponge and rub at the affected area. Trowel finished plaster wall needs more care- re-wet to lightly scrape off the area for another trowel coat. However, if the stain is too deep and intense, trowel coat makes it lighter.
2. For small and scrapes and dings, you need to consider little plasterwork. A flexible trowel can do the work. All you just need a little amount of earth plaster mix, just enough to hide the area. If you use too much of the mixture, try to scrape off the extra from the main portion. But it’s always easier said than done. So for any plasterwork in Gold Coast, it’s always wise to rely on the professional plastering service.
3. In case of lime plaster, it’s important to rehydrate the plaster properly. Once the watering is done, fill the same mixture onto the porous surface and scrape off the excess from around. We cut open the area in V to fill it with the mixture and use trowel to compress the mixture well onto the surface.
4. At times you may notice very fine crack across the plaster coat. This is a very common issue for which our customers come to us. Stoning is the best option to handle fine cracks. In case of larger cracks or hole, the previous mixture filling with trowel finish gives the best result.
