Deep Cleaning

The Old Colony Building, a landmark building, in the Loop, was getting a facial of sorts earlier this week. (According to an on-line article, here, The Old Colony Building was one of the first buildings constructed after the Chicago Fire. Its architects, Holabird & Roche used the "Chicago Style" design steel frame structure that enabled skyscrapers to be built.)

This work crew was power-washing the building facade. I didn't see the the scaffolding at first; what caught my eye were the parked cars covered in plastic. That made me look up to see what was going on. I think you can better see the progress they've made in the second picture.

Nice photos!! Building is very old and good one!! By the way, have you heard of It really simplifies finding affordable cleaners. I used it to find them for my home and garden. Essentially, after I described what I needed on this site, I received several competitive bids from local cleaners. I liked the fact that I didn’t have to call around and negotiate with each, and that they actually came to me.
