The work was planned together with management of the Corporation, and the initiative came from Kärcher, said representatives of the company. Cleaning of the facade of the Riga station took two weeks. On the sink surface area of 4,000 m2 has been spent 40 thousand liters of water.

The work was carried out by a single operator under the supervision of specialists Kärcher. The project is sort of a gift to the Railways for their anniversary. Therefore, initially, selection of station as the object for cleaning was predetermined. Rizhsky railway station is one of the oldest and most beautiful stations in Russia, with more than a hundred years of history. It is a perfect opportunity to demonstrate readiness for Kärcher to clean the object of any complexity and fragility, because the facade of the station is decorated with lots of decorative elements.
