Keeping Green Buildings Green (and Clean)

This innovative process significantly reduces water usage, cuts drying times, and saves on chemicals and labor while accomplishing the same or better results. To get the details and answer common questions, we sat down with Michael Schaffer President of Tornado and CFR. The following article is based on our conversation.
