Guest's review of Eco Solutions X-Tex Textured Coatings Remover


“Waste of money ”

Written on: 20/06/2013

Followed. The manufacturers instructions but just didn't work - no way does it scrape off like the u-tube clip. Just buy a steamer which is a bit messy but does the job instead and you can always use it for paper later!
Beware this stuff does take varnish off though and if a drop of it splodges on you doors it takes the paint off them instead.
Don'T waste your money

Really sorry to hear you experienced problems whilst using X-Tex. Our technical helpline number is on the product label and a call to speak with out technical department could have given you the answers you were looking for.

Most artex has been painted over the years, and this requires an overnight application as stated in our You Tube video. Vinyl silks can also be difficult to remove and tips to this can be found.

The problem with using a steamer is that the artex can dry out once it has been removed and if it contains asbestos fibres then you have a health issue

X-Tex keeps the artex wet at all times preventing any dust becoming airborne.

We also advise to cover the surrounding area with dust sheets or newspaper to prevent floors or painted or varnished areas becoming marked. Surely a common sense precaution when doing any kind of DIY.
