Bracknell Town Centre

The challenge

To remove chewing gum and clean the paved areas using a non-disruptive, environmentally friendly system.

What did we do

Over an 8 week period we worked day & night to remove chewing gum using an innovative, low pressure, high temperature system; the Miraclean system. This system only uses 40 litres of water in an 8 hour period, compared to 7,200 litres for traditional jet wash methods. It is very quiet, so did not disturb the residents or shoppers, and does not undermine or damage the jointing sand of the paving.

The outcome

Over 21,000 m2 (Nearly 6 football pitches) of block paving have been cleared of chewing gum and grime using the minimum of water (a precious resource) and without disrupting the block paving joints.

"Bracknell Forest Borough Council have utilised the services of Community Clean on numerous occasions, particularly to deal with specific problems requiring specialist attention. In addition, they are able to supply specialist equipment and materials, such as their easy to use graffiti removal kits which have proven to be very effective in terms of both efficiency and cost. Community Clean were employed to undertake a chewing gum removal project to the Town Centre using an innovative environmentally-friendly system. These works also included a complete wash to the entire modular block paved surface of the town centre. The works were completed to a very high standard with significant improvement to the aesthetic amenity and with no disruption to shoppers or commercial premises.

In another very successful project Community Clean assisted with the supervision and organisation of works where young offenders removed graffiti. Community Clean are an amicable, approachable team who are prepared to listen to and work with their clients. I have no hesitation at all in recommending Community Clean as a quality service provider."
