Tar Crashes onto Ceramic-Tiled Patio

We welcomed the insurance company's challenge of saving this new, custom-tiled patio from replacement after it had been terribly defaced by vandals. Advanced Fire & Flood' trained specialists tackled the problem at once, utilizing numerous chemical solvents to gradually dissolve the thick, black mess. Regrouting and special polishing were then necessary to completely restore the patio to its original condition.
