Femme Alure is a photography studio located in the Pajama Factory in Williamsport PA. The Pajama Factory is an 300,000 sq. ft. facility build in the 1880s being renovated into an artist community. It offers artist studios as well as work and retail space. White the age of the building offers character found in few locations that age and ongoing renovation means quite a bit of dirt can accumulate.
Ali at Femme Alure asked ProGreen Cleaning to help prep her new studio by cleaning the floors before she moved in.
Much of the flooring in the Pajama Factory is hardwood plank harvested locally during lumber boom that made Williamsport, PA the hardwood capital of the world. Cleaning as well as uncovering the beauty of the wood was a goal for Ali while leaving some the history intact. In some pictures you will notice tape lines that once marked machinery boundaries, stains and nails. She also desired a protective coating but little reflection, no high gloss finish.
We were able to prep then thoroughly clean the floor with our floor scrubber. Next we sealed the wood and finally added three coats of floor finish to give the wood protection and a mate shine.
The results were outstanding! The floor is clean, sealed and protected with over a centuries worth of character showing through.
We appreciate Ali trusting her new studio floors to us and look forward to helping many others in the Pajama Factory and the Williamsport area.
