Nestling in the rolling Somerset countryside, Bath offers a wide range of attractions for its millions of visitors each year. As Britain's oldest tourist destination, Bath can trace its history of leisure and pilgrim visitors over a thousand years. The springs were consdidered sacred to the Celtic goddess Sulis, long before the Romans got here and eauated Sulis to their own goddess, Minerva. Since then, the city has thrived on constant traffic of visitors, which in turn funded magnificent developments and buildings throughout the centuries, which in their own turn became attractions for yet more visitors. Sadly, Bath was quite heavily damaged during World War II, leading to the demolition of some of the fine terraces and cresents, leaving the way open to some ill-conceived modern developments through the 1960s and 1970s that became known as "The Sack of Bath".<br /><br />With historic buildings in and around the town, some national monuments, some still in use, owned privately or by the local council, we often find ourselves called on in the Bath area to ensure that when the grime from traffic, bird fouling, general day to day soiling or even graffiti is removed from a treasured building, there is no damage to the often delicate stonework beneath.<br /><br />From removal of old paint for a domestic redecoration project, or the intricate cleaning of stone work in a cathedral using the poultice method, you will find that wherever you are in Bath or Somerset, you will get a quick response, highly competitive quotation and thorough cleaning from DJ Cooper.

The ThermaTech Superheated Steam Cleaning Process
For the gentle removal of Flexible Paints, Graffiti, Algae, Moss and more<br /><br />The ThermaTech System is unique in achieving temperatures up to 150 degrees at the nozzle end – making it a superheated water system. Designed and developed to effectively remove paint, biological matter and general dirt and grime without causing harm or shock to the substrate.<br /><br />What can ThermaTech be used for?<br /><br />The steam/superheated water will remove paint, moss, algae, fungi and other biological matter and will also kill off spores. This means there is then no need to use a chemical biocide during the removal process or as a protection against further biological activity.<br /><br />How does it work?<br /><br />ThermaTech cleans stonework and masonry using high-temperature steam. Whilst the temperature in the system is high, the pressure on the surface being cleaned is very gentle and the volume of water is low. The surface is therefore not saturated and will be dry within minutes.<br /><br />With absolutly 0% surface damage.<br /><br />We recommend the ThermaTech for use on surfaces such as brick, stone, concrete, tiled (glazed and encaustic), wood, faience and terracotta. It is a useful sterilisation tool for kitchens, toilets, swimming pools, hospitals and factories.
