Bromyard, in the east of Herefordshire, is a place where tradition and local tradition are appreciated. An historic market town which is mentioned in the Domesday Book, Bromyard offers visitors surroundings and an atmosphere to make them feel they have been taken back in time.<br /><br />Nearby villages of Bringsty, Collington, Pencombe, Cradley and Bishops Frome, give tourists and locals alike, the chance to visit wonderful gardens, galleries and churches. In somewhat grander style, the nearby Brockhampton Estate is a popular destination with visitors.<br /><br />The history of Bromyard is very much lived rather than just admired. There are maany annual events, including the Bromyard Gala, Nozstock Festival and the Folk Festival. The setting is perfect and we are happy to help play a part in keeping it that way.<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 Bromyard 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 Bromyard or Herefordshire, you will get a quick response, highly competitive quotation and thorough cleaning from DJ Cooper.

<p> Abrasive blasting, commonly referred to as 'Sandblasting', is the operation of forcibly propelling a stream of abrasive material against a surface under high pressure to smooth a rough surface, roughen a smooth surface, shape a surface, or remove surface contaminants.<br /><br />Despite the common use of the term, it is illegal in the UK to use most forms of sand for abrasive blasting, as the fine dust particles which are created when the sand is projected at high speed, can cause silicosis – a potentially fatal lung disease.<br /><br />With a wide choice of abrasive media available, the process can be fine tuned to suit the contamination to be removed and the surface from which it is to be cleaned. By choosing correctly and applying the process skilfully, excellent results can be achieved on a great variety of cleaning tasks.<br /><br />There are several variants of the process, using various media; some are highly abrasive, whereas others are milder. The most abrasive are shot blasting (with metal shot) and sandblasting (with sand). Moderately abrasive variants include glass bead blasting (with glass beads) and plastic media blasting (PMB) with ground-up plastic stock or walnut shells and corncobs. Some of these substances can cause anaphylactic shock to both operators and passers by. A mild version is sodablasting (with baking soda). In addition, there are alternatives that are barely abrasive or nonabrasive, such as ice blasting and dry-ice blasting. </p><h4></h4><p></p><p></p>
