Wells is the smallest city in England: a city purely because of the presence of its famous cathedral. In reality, this quiet Somerset backwater, at the foot of the Mendip Hills, close to the attractions of Wookey Hole and the Ebbor George Nature Reserve is more like a compact country town. The history goes back to Roman times and beyond, with many fascinating indications to changes of occupancy. Being a small town, with easy walking distances between any parts has made Wells a great attraction for tourists and history lovers. Its sometime turbulent past has left physical marks still visible to this day. Local cheese is very popular and there is a specialist cheese shop in the town. Of course, you can't have cheese without milk, so there are dairy herds managed in many surrouunding areas. To make sure that these herds have good hoof health and low incidence of cattle lameness, we are very often called upon by farmers around Wells 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 Wells 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 Wells or Somerset, you will get a quick response, highly competitive quotation and thorough cleaning from DJ Cooper.

For the gentle removal of Flexible Paints, Graffiti, Algae, Moss and more
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.
What can ThermaTech be used for?
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.
How does it work?
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.
With absolutly 0% surface damage.
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.
