A high rise building's facade can represent a bold statement about the compan(ies) and occupants within. Many beautiful buildings are architecturally designed and constructed with a combination of glass, metal, stone and precast materials. Often cleaning or restoring one surface can wreak havoc on the other. Typically, run off onto the stone or precast surface is evident if improper cleaning methods are applied and the wrong products are used. Natural stone and related forms of building materials such as concrete, masonry, precast, and brick require special attention to preserve the natural beauty and protect it from staining and leaching. While glass or metal cleaning products are not right for polished stone... there is a solution.

Over a decade ago, Presto Restoration Products created a line of cleaning, restoring and maintenance products for building materials including those formulated for stone-related surfaces.

Presto recommends a three-step process:clean/restore, protect and maintain.The use of these products by knowledgeable service companies or Presto Restoration Services can insure the best outcome for your buildings' exterior maintenance for many years to come.

Stone Restore® PS (Polished Stone) is just one of their most popular products to return stone surfaces back to its original beauty. It is a mildly abrasive restorative cream that removes waterproofing overspray, lime and calcium stains, soap scum and other stains from polished stone surface. After the restoration process, Presto recommends Leach Stop® to prevent staining, water penetration and leaching onto adjacent surfaces.
