The removal of the paper, took 1 1/2 days for 4 workers. Some of the paper came off in large pieces, most came off in relatively small pieces. Once all the paper was gone, the walls were washed with a gel and water mixture to remove the paste. Then the walls were washed with warm water and TSP. The work was left for 24 hours to dry. This left a very clean surface.
The walls and ceiling surfaces were vacuumed, then dusted with a special mop head to remove the remaining dust. Once this was done, the floor areas were vacuumed. Then we unwrapped the wood cabinets and appliances. At the end of the day, all appliances, cabinets and counter tops were washed down. In fact the work area was cleaned thoroughly every day.
There will be more to follow as the job progresses. GC, Mike Amendola will have his company installing new closet doors, trim and flooring. Mike owns, All Points Construction and Home Inspections.
All of the construction work, flooring, trim and new doors was completed by, All Points Construction, Bergen County, NJ.
In addition to the carpentry work, painting, cabinet restoration, the owner also installed a new dish washer and new lighting in the powder room.
Overall, the area looks like new! It was a pleasure working with these home owners.
