Spanish term or phrase: "revestimiento de obras"
I am translating a Spanish (i.e. from Spain) document describing the activities of a company, seemingly centered on sanitary/cleaning services. However, I am confused by the term "revestimiento de obras" mixed in with disinfection, etc.
In the list of activities, it says (quotes are mine, the dots are from the original):
SERVICIOS DE LIMPIEZA..., DESINFECCION, DESINSECTACION, DESRATIZACION, CONTROL DE PLAGAS Y EL "REVESTIMIENTO DE OBRAS"... COMPRA, VENTA O ALQUILER Y/O MANTENIMIENTO DE ARTICULOS SANITARIOS,
later on it says:
Ejecución de servicios de limpieza de edificaciones, desinfección, desinsectación, desratización, control de plagas; tratamientos de control y prevención de legionela, y "revestimiento de obras". Servicios de limpieza, desinfección, control de plagas.

Anyone have an idea of what this means in this context? Revestimiento usually means coating, cladding, covering, etc. The rest of the text is no help. I truly appreciate your helping me out with this--it's a rush job, due in the morning. Thanks.
