The historic town of Langport, on the banks of the River Parrett, claims to be the smallest town in England. Langport and all the villages around are part of the Somerset Levels, where in 2014, flooding had a catastrophic effect on farming in the area, with the worst flooding since 1929. Most of the blame was laid at the door of the Environment Agency for failing to dredge the River Parrett and the Parrett Relief Channel, both of which were said to be silted up to below 60% of their capacity to clear the flood waters from the Levels. As always, famers carry on farming against all the odds, and local herds are still maintaining their numbers. As with all areas that are prone to wet underfoot conditions, great vigilance needs to be employed to spot and treat cattle lameness quickly to keep yields up. For this reason, farmers in the Langport area call on us more frequently than average 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 Langport 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 Langport or Somerset, you will get a quick response, highly competitive quotation and thorough cleaning from DJ Cooper.

Therma Tech System
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.
