Shepton Mallet is an ideal centre from which to visit the many tourist attractions of this area, including other fascinating towns such as Bath, Bristol and Weston Super Mare. It is also home to the County Showground where cattle are often paraded in front of judges at the Mid-Somerset Show and the Royal Bath and Wells Show. The importance of agriculture to the area is demonstrated by the name; Shepton meaning sheep pen, Mallet indicating that the land was donated by the Mallet family. The area still holds large numbers of sheep, as well as a good number of herds of dairy cattle.

The ThermaTech Superheated Steam Cleaning Process
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 is 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.
