The historic call boxes were in poor shape, having experienced years of deterioration and decay. The objective of the project was to restore the boxes to their former appearance in an effort to protect a unique aspect of the area's history, as well as to liven up the appearance of the neighborhoods. Clean & Polish restored five historic fire call boxes to their original splendor.
Details of the Restoration
The professional technicians from Clean and Polish soon got to work, restoring the call boxes to their former appearance, using historically accurate colors that were discovered during an initial stripping project. Each call box was painted red and black, with the pedestals and light poles being painted black and the call box housing being painted red. In addition to the paint work, Clean and Polish professionals fitted each box with a special plaque, outlining a particular element of Burleith history.
