The Challenge: The owners of the Farm Credit Building had spent eleven months, hired three different cleaning companies and spent in excess of $500,000 unsuccessfully attempting to clean the exterior of their unique building. The badly stained exterior had not come clean in the previous attempts using other cleaning companies; making the job tougher was the soft Indiana limestone exterior that precluded any sort of abrasive cleaning methodology.

The Solution: We were hired to solve the problem in November of 1995. Three days after we had been selected, the building was cleaned exactly to the owners’ specifications and at a fraction of the cost of the previously unsuccessful efforts. The building’s owners were amazed: not only with the fact that the building was successfully cleaned but with the time it took to complete the job. After spending nearly a year attempting to clean the exterior, we cleaned the estimated 145,000 square feet of building exterior in just a few days. No scaffolding was used to complete the task.

The Result: Management of the building was so pleased with the result that they achieved through our company that they retained the company to complete a bi-annual maintenance cleanings on the building. “They have restored the building to its original appearance…something which you promised but I did not think was possible,” said Timothy J. Fletcher of the FCS Building Association, owner of the Farm Credit Building.
