December 3, 2007: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: HartzStone, LLC announces the launch of their comprehensive stone and tile maintenance plan

HartzStone, LLC has announced they have rolled out The HartzStone Stone Care Program. Ed Hartz, the President of HartzStone, and Steven Berr, Vice President of Sales and Marketing have long recognized the need to protect the investment that homeowners make when purchasing and installing stone in their homes. "Traditionally, the stone restoration and maintenance companies have been overlooked until the stone reaches a seriously dilapidated state," said Mr. Hartz. "With the stone industry's recent emphasis on the care and maintenance of natural stone, HartzStone has taken the next logical step by creating and implementing this unique program." HartzStone is currently distributing The HartzStone Stone Care Program to stone and tile shops, architectural firms and general contractors throughout the New York metropolitan area, thus giving them the tools to educate and satisfy all of their customers.

The HartzStone Stone Care Program is comprised of three components:

Post Installation Services: This step includes professional cleaning that will remove installation residue and soil as well as proper treatment with the appropriate, penetrating sealant.

Regularly Schedule Cleaning: This step will remove soils and stains before they contribute to more serious deterioration of the stone. This is accomplished by using professional cleaning materials that reach deeply into the stone and powerful water vacuums that pull the dissolved soil and moisture out. Light abrasives and brushing techniques are employed as needed.

Regularly Scheduled Sealing: This step will serve to protect the stone surface and prevent serious damage. Proper application of a high quality sealer matched to the stone and the environment will provide protection and ease everyday cleaning.

Through their sales and marketing efforts HartzStone has discovered that stone and tile shops, fabricators and installers see a genuine need for these types of services, especially Post Installation, for their customers. With the introduction of this program HartzStone is making a lasting commitment to every homeowner to increase the integrity of their stone and the value of their homes. Mr. Hartz knows that with proper care, stone, tile and concrete surfaces will bring a lifetime of beauty and enjoyment. The HartzStone Stone Care Program is an all-inclusive regimen for the regularly scheduled treatment of all types of stone and tile designed to preserve the natural splendor of all stone surfaces.
