Nestling in the north west corner of Herefordshire, Kington borders on Powys in Wales and is a great centre for walkers, being on the conjunction of five major walking routes, including Offa's Dyke, The Arrow Valley Trail and the Wyche Way.<br /><br />Within the town, the narrow streets and higgledy-piggledy areas show how the area has grown and evolved for centuries. Many of the buildings date back to the 16th century and beyond. All are still in daily use and the town is a living, thriving display of how history breathes through the buildings and streets of such a town.<br /><br />As a piece of sporting trivia, Kington Golf Club is Englandís highest 18-hole course, playable 12 months of the year.<br /><br />Standing high and overlooking the town is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin. Parts of the building are Norman, notably the originally detached tower and the font. The fine stained glass windows as well as the superb alabaster tomb of Sir Thomas Vaughan and his wife have all been superbly maintained over the many years of this remarkable building.<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 Kington 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 Kington or Herefordshire, you will get a quick response, highly competitive quotation and thorough cleaning from DJ Cooper.

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 ‚Äď 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.
