Building Maintenance for Flush Mount Systems

Our product line is specifically formulated to deal with flush mount window and precast systems which suffer problems due to minerals leaching from the precast down onto the glass and frames. This system while providing a beautiful architectural presence, is often plagued by glass stains. Typically this is due to improper or inadequate building maintenance.

Presto's product line is perfect for the flush mount system. We provide the products to restore and protect the architectural glass, precast, and anodized aluminum window frames, leaving them as beautiful as the day they were installed. However, the real test, and measure of the effectiveness of our protective treatments and maintenance recommendations is whether or not we are able to keep the stains from coming back.  

In our experience, many buildings go through the process of glass restoration every 3 to 5 years in order to keep the windows free from glass stains. We are here to tell you that this is not a necessary process. 

Presto Property Services restored and installed protective coatings to every architectural surface on 1100 Peachtree Street in 2007, and have maintained the materials and protective coatings for the last 5 years.  In accordance with our recommendations, the building was rinsed off using Green-Kleen after 5 years in order to properly maintain the stone surfaces. Additionally, we have cleaned the windows with deionized water every six months since the restoration process. This maintenance protocol has allowed the windows and precast to remain stain free for the last 5 years.

As can be seen in the slide show below, this building is in perfect condition.  It is most noticeable when comparing the "before" pictures during the first part of the slide show to the after pictures which can be seen at the end.
