Leominster can claim its place in British commercial history by being the original hom of Ryeland Sheep, famed for its top-quality wool. With taxes on wool being vital to the crown, the wool from these sheep became known as 'Lemster Ore' and became a textile trade phenomenon in the middle ages.<br /><br />Leominster is on the Black and White Trail which is a roughly forty mile circular tour of towns and villages where original 16th and 17th Century timber framed buildings are preserved and still enjoy daily use.<br /><br />On a grander scale, Leominster Priory has been a place of gathering since the 7th century. There is a striking example of medieval justice here; imagine how the alleged witches must have felt when introduced to one of Englandís last surviving ducking stools. There is also the Grade II listed timber framed market hall built by John Abel in 1633, Grange Court, which is still open to the public and gives a fascinating glimpse into the commerce of the day.<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 Leominster 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 Leominster or Herefordshire, 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>
