Dreamworks Studios - Flagstone & pavers stain removal & restoration


Expert Restoration for Any Surface Material

Restoration is at the core of what we do

NEx Systems started over 25 years ago as a maintenance provider with specialized products, processes and tools for restoring damaged carpets, textile walls and other surfaces using non-toxic cleaning products.

With our own in-house chemical engineering, we soon began helping clients install better quality flooring with more environmentally friendly and effective protectants and sealers. But at heart, our staff are experts in reviving damaged, aged, worn and faded materials. From wood and textiles to stone and concrete as well as synthetic surfaces, we can bring your building, weathered furniture, walkways, carpets and upholstery back to life.

Hard Surface Floor Maintenance Plans

Maintenance expertise in every surface with patented processes and proprietary products

While we work with companies of all sizes, many of our clients are large companies who invest in beautiful natural hard surface floors within their facilities. The facility managers for these buildings call us because new custom flooring doesn’t come with an instruction manual and they know that improper care can damage their floors and shorten the life of their investment. Even the best janitorial services don’t have the expertise to know what sealants to use, which cleaners can erode which kinds of surfaces and what coatings can provide better traction while maintaining a lustrous shine.


Most all natural hard surface flooring is either porous or has absorptive characteristics – which means they can be eroded by acids and chemicals and they can stain easily. With foot traffic, they will also lose their lustre unless properly protected. These surfaces need to be sealed and protected from the possibility of staining, discoloration and de-lustering, because once stained the stone will permanently absorb the discoloration.


NEx Systems creates customized formulations of its sealants, color enhancer-impregnators and coatings as part of a tailored proactive maintenance program that protects and preserves all of your interior and exterior hard surfaces.
