  QUESTION: Adding your business details to our website, 26 Apr 2005, New South Wales Australia


I am a painter and decorator and father of 4 young children. My wife is a veterinarian, so we are both very aware and concerned about the damaging effects of lead both on our children and pets.

I recently participated in the Master Painters Associations lead contractors course where I became aware of your organisation.

Myself and two fellow painters have recently started a new business called Back To Bare. We specialize in paint removal that is non toxic, non caustic, non hazardous, water based & biodegradable. We are able to remove paint cleanly and safely from a number of different surfaces, including wood, brickwork, heritage stone, metal surfaces. Back To Bare is involved in a heritage restoration project at the moment removing paint from face brickwork and stripping lead paint off timber windows. Our system was chosen by the head contractor over traditional methylene chloride strippers.

I am interested in speaking with someone from your organisation about the possibility of making your readers aware of our service.

Thank you for your time
Andrew Fairclough

ANSWER: 26 Apr 2005

Dear Andrew,

Thank you for your enquiry and patience. We apologise for the late reply. Due to the immense number of emails we get from our website, it takes us a while to get through all of them.

We would love to add your business to our website and direct our readers to your service. We do however require more details of your business and training. For example when you completed the Master Painters Associations lead contractors course and the features of the service that you would provide (this was mentioned in your previous email, so let us know if you're happy for us to use this information).

An example of this information (given to us by other painters) can be found on our website Go directly to Or you can go to Referral_lists. This will then give you a list of painters with the MPA training. We would add your details to this list. If you require further information, please do not hesitate to call us.
