Removing A Radiator
A radiator circulates water to provide heat in a room, they are usually installed with clips or brackets that are fixed to the wall.
There are a number of occasions when removing a radiator would make life a lot easier, especially when it comes to decorating behind and also for cleaning all that accumulated dust away!

The major thing that prevents DIYer’s from removing radiators is simple, they really are not specialised in this field and it is recommended to call out a local plumber, who can remove and replace the radiator in no time.
This can become quite costly if you need to have all your radiators removed especially when it comes to decorating!

One major problem is the dirty water if this spills over the carpet this could stain and can be difficult to clean off!
The picture below shows the radiator has been tilted to catch all the water which in most cases is black.
If you do have a spillage on your floors it is advised to try and wipe off as soon as possible, as it can stain and, in some cases, you may have no option but to replace your carpets!
If you are thinking of having a go at removing the radiator by yourself think first as radiators can be quite heavy. You may need a second person to assist when removing and putting it back onto the wall!
Removing a radiator can also become a very messy job and very time-consuming!
