THE ARMUS COMBO OF HYDRO GUARD AND PURE GUARD PROTECTS HISTORIC LIMESTONE!Built in 1953, the Bulova Corporate Center is a historic Art Deco office building located near La Guardia Airport in Queens, New York.
Bulova Corporate Center’s proximity to the La Guardia runway makes the façade susceptible to stains from jet fuel stains from planes landing and taking off. The humidity of New York also creates an ideal environment for the growth of moss an algae on the building.
Professional care is taken in the cleaning and restoration of its façade, as the historic limestone is a delicate substrate. Without professional cleaning, the façade can be damaged by chemicals or cleaning with incorrect water pressure.
The worst corner of the limestone façade was professionally power washed and cleaned and Pure Guard was applied using an HVLP sprayer directly onto the limestone façade.
