What did the client need?

APT’s partnership with Blaenau Gwent Council continues to flourish, marked by a series of successful projects including chewing gum and graffiti removal. As part of this growing alliance, APT undertook the task of rejuvenating the streets of Ebbw Vale, a charming town nestled in the heart of Wales. Years of accumulated dirt, debris, grime, chewing gum stains, and other unsightly marks had marred the town center’s appearance. This case study sheds light on APT’s strategic approach to street cleaning, demonstrating their commitment to enhancing the town’s aesthetic appeal.

Ebbw Vale, a small but vibrant town, required a thorough street cleaning to restore its charm. The streets had accumulated years of dirt, debris, grime, and unsightly chewing gum stains that deterred from the town’s visual appeal. Additionally, the town clock, a beloved landmark, was obscured by layers of bird droppings, rendering it unusable. The town council sought APT’s expertise to address these issues and restore the town’s cleanliness. Waste removal was also on the agenda, and APT was up for the task.

How did we approach it?

APT’s approach to street cleaning involved a multi-faceted strategy that harnessed various cleaning techniques and specialised commercial cleaning chemicals. The key elements of our street cleaning approach included:

  1. High-Pressure Jetting: We utilised high-pressure jetting equipment to dislodge and remove stubborn dirt, grime, and debris from the streets. This powerful method ensured a thorough and effective cleaning process.

  2. Super-Heated Steam Cleaning: APT employed super-heated steam cleaning, an alternative to the doff cleaning method, to tackle chewing gum stains and other staining. The super-heated steam effectively loosened and removed these unsightly marks from the town’s surfaces.

  3. Specialist Commercial Cleaning Chemicals: Collaborating with our sister company, APT Commercial Chemicals, we employed their specialised products. These chemicals, designed for industrial and commercial applications, offered effective solutions for various cleaning challenges encountered during the project.

What was the solution?

The street cleaning solution lay in a comprehensive and methodical cleaning process that encompassed high-pressure jetting, super-heated steam cleaning, and the strategic application of specialised commercial cleaning chemicals. APT’s team of experts worked diligently to remove years of accumulated dirt, debris, grime, and stubborn chewing gum stains from the town’s streets. The town clock received special attention, with APT ensuring it was free from bird droppings. Waste removal was efficiently managed, contributing to the overall cleanliness of the town.

What was the outcome?

The outcome of APT’s street cleaning efforts in Ebbw Vale was nothing short of transformational. The town’s streets, once marred by years of neglect, regained their vibrancy and cleanliness. Chewing gum stains, grime, and debris were effectively removed, restoring the town’s visual appeal. The town clock, now free from bird droppings, became a functional and cherished landmark once more. Blaenau Gwent Council and the town’s residents were highly pleased with the results, recognizing the significant positive change APT had brought to Ebbw Vale.
