What did the client need?

Moira Furnace Museum, known for preserving historical artifacts and showcasing the rich industrial heritage of the region, sought APT’s expertise for a unique project. The task at hand involved the delicate process of narrow boat cleaning and the removal of unsightly bird foul from the boat’s exterior. Ensuring the preservation of the boat’s substrate material while effectively removing the bird fouling presented a challenging yet vital aspect of the project.

Moira Furnace Museum required specialised boat cleaning services to address the issue of bird foul accumulated on the narrow boat hull. The exterior of the boat had become an unfortunate target for bird droppings, tarnishing its appearance and posing potential damage risks to the substrate material. The client sought a meticulous and eco-friendly solution to restore the boat’s exterior to its former glory, preserving its historical significance.

How did we approach it?

Understanding the delicate nature of the boat’s surface, APT carefully formulated a solution to tackle the bird foul without causing any harm to the substrate material. To ensure comprehensive protection, we meticulously installed protective covers around the boat’s surroundings and on the ground, preventing any potential contamination during the cleaning process.

APT employed an environmentally-friendly soda blasting technique to remove all traces of bird foul from the boat hull. This technique allowed for precise and efficient removal without compromising the integrity of the boat’s substrate. Following the soda blasting, we utilised a compressor house to thoroughly eliminate any remaining residue, leaving the boat surface clean and ready for restoration.
