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:
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.
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.

More Graffiti Removal
Some people just cannot resist spoiling the appearance of a lovely old piece of local stone with graffiti. After all, it is hardly a Banksy now, is it?
Luckily, the owner of this wall called us and after an initial discussion, then test clean of a small area, we were able to remove the paint while leaving the delicate stone substrate a surface to be proud of.
If your building has suffered such an attack, remember that stone and bricks are delicate too, and can be easily damaged by inappropriate cleaning methods. For sound advice and prompt, efficient removal, call us now or click in the header of any page to send us an email.
