High Street gets bi-annual power wash
in Burnham-On-Sea town centre have had their regular bi-annual
wash and brush up this week.
Sedgemoor District Councils Clean Surroundings contractors,
Powerclean, have been washing Burnham's High Street to make it
presentable for the Christmas shopping season.
"The process uses high pressure steam to remove staining,
ground-in dirt, bird mess and chewing gum," council spokeswoman
Claire Faun told Burnham-On-Sea.com.
The programme takes around three weeks to complete and is undertaken
twice per year in addition to the normal regular street cleaning
activities such as litter picking and mechanical sweeping.
