Dunster is a picturesque village located on the fringes of Exmoor. Characterised by thatched cottages, a unique octagonal yarn market and the imposing Dunster Castle. Once a thriving trading port on the coast, Dunster was left high and dry when the sea retreated, cutting off their access to the coast. The textile industry kept the town prosperous for many years, with a special type of yarn, Dunster, being accredited to local spinners in a way that made it stronger and more durable than anything else at the time. With the sea receeding, there was more useful land available for agriculture too, and many of the farms still operational around Dunster can trace their history back to those times. It is always a joy to visit this area when local farmers call us in for:<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 Dunster 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 Dunster or Somerset, you will get a quick response, highly competitive quotation and thorough cleaning from DJ Cooper.

Therma Tech System
<p>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's 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.</p><h4></h4><p></p><p></p>
