CJK is a steam cleaning & pressure washing service, owned & run by Chris King.
My main focus is to provide services for those requiring restoration & renovation cleaning work, in Bedfordshire & the surrounding shires. Due to the logistical nature of supplying these services, I have a “Minimum Workload” of half a day duration.
As a sole operator, I’m happy to work on individual projects or the more regular client.
CJK offers services in steam cleaning & pressure washing, this is an important area of maintenance for many materials & surfaces, industrial, commercial & domestic. A well-planned maintenance program can prolong the life of pathways, patios, decking, buildings and equipment by many years.
The build-up of dirt, algae, moss & Lycans can make surfaces look old and uncared-for quite quickly & in lots of cases surfaces can become very slippery. This is especially important to avoid in areas where the older or the more frail reside.
Having surfaces professionally cleaned addresses many parts of general maintenance, this can help prevent the unsightly discolouration that occurs with time.
Many people have invested highly in their properties, by having block-paving driveways and pathways installed, that look incredible when new, but without maintenance this soon fades. Maintenance also plays an important role in the stability & integrity of such surfaces, with time the sand that locks the stones or blocks together can sink or gets washed away with repeated rain, this can lead to the structural deterioration that is VERY commonly seen.
When a block paving surface has been cleaned at CJK it’s part of our standard process to re-sand those blocks after drying, this helps restore your driveway or pathway to its former glory. Not just in looks, but in structural integrity as well.
We offer private & commercial: Building Restoration Cleaning, Stone Restoration Cleaning, Brickwork Cleaning, Roof Cleaning, Paint Removal, Graffiti Removal, Chewing Gum Removal, Efflorescence Removal, Patio Cleaning, Driveway Cleaning, Walkway Cleaning, Decking Cleaning, Statue Cleaning & Monument Cleaning.
Cobblestone Cleaning, Decking Areas, Concrete Cleaning, Exterior Building Cleaning, General Pressure Washing across Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire & Buckinghamshire.
Our Steam Cleaning & Pressure Washing equipment can deliver up to 25 Lpm @250 Bars. These flow-rates require the use of a buffer tank & good water supply. This tank helps compensate for any shortfalls in water supply volume, as these machines require more water flow than most domestic systems can supply.
With the use of varying nozzles, hose lengths and a large surface cleaner, many cleaning tasks can be undertaken. There are many types of chemicals that can aid the cleaning process and also prevent future build-ups of algae, moss and lichens, making surfaces quite slippery.
Some of these lichens can be really quite hard to remove if allowed to get a real hold on surfaces that haven’t been maintained properly, resulting in the use of higher levels of chemical intervention and more prolonged use of higher-pressure cleaning.
Regular maintenance is a much better way to address the inevitable build-up of naturally occurring growths, over the course of time.These cleaning processes can totally transform the look of your property by restoring colour texture & structure to the surfaces.
That feeling of seeing your property looking it’s best, when you use your driveways or pathways in the mornings and again after returning from your day, knowing & having that reassurance it’s all in order, or even just knowing your investment is not falling into a state of disrepair!
A lack of regular maintenance is not only unsightly, but is also false economy, not to mention a major contributor, to the possibility of substantial future repair costs. At CJK we are happy to help you achieve your cleaning & maintenance goals

Exceptional service all round. Chris’s level of care and attention to detail produced a fantastic result. Massive thanks.
Extremely good service, Chris was able to do a very sensitive restoration of smoke damaged brickwork and heavily charred beam on my inglenook fireplace following a house fire. He arrived on time and although the process does create a lot of dust, the floors were protected by tarpaulins and he did an excellent job of clearing up afterwards. I am very happy with the result.
Chris is a lovely chap; keen to help and a font of knowledge. He removed decades of paint on the rear of our house; allowing us to have windows changed before walls are rendered. We are very pleased with the result! Thank you
A very professional efficient service by Chris at CJK. I got him to sandblast tower crane sections for an upcoming job and they have turned out as good as new If not better. M.Cassidy Cassidy Tower Crane Services
We have recently used CJK blasting to remove paint from the exterior of our property. Over the years the house has been painted using various paints which over time have started peeling off and damaging the bricks and mortar underneath. Chris came along on a couple of days initially to test out the best method of removing the paint and discuss our requirements before giving us an idea of what he would do. Once this was confirmed we talked about a date and all met with a scaffolding company. We have had walls sand blasted and steam blasted to remove the paint. Chris works methodically and meticulously and keeps you informed along the way. This was a messy job cleared up on a daily basis. We would have no hesitation in recommending Chris.
We’ve asked Chris to remove old paint from our garden wall. He did a great job, very pleased with the results. The garden was left in clean and tidy state. Thank you very much!
I commissioned CJK to clean up some old cast iron grates. Chris arrived with his mobile unit and did a fantastic, professional job – I couldn’t be happier with the result. He was also meticulous with the clear-up operation afterwards. I have no hesitation in recommending his services. Richard Earl Eversholt
i called Chris at short notice, and he was so helpful and accommodating. He set to work straight away and done the most amazing job of sandblasting our old wooden beams. the transformation was worth every penny, and he was very careful about cleaning up. excellent service, highly recommend!
We contracted Chris to remove masonry paint from the house we bought in August 2020. The damage to the brickwork and internal walls from paint containing plastic is as a result of solid walls being unable to breathe – a must for most Victorian buildings. Chris provided a detailed consultation in which we discussed our needs and wants for the building prior to the work commencing. It was then that we talked about concerns about the potential harshness of abrasive cleaning to the brickwork and he assured us of the measures he would take to ensure that the material he uses would be adjusted to minimise any damage. In addition to this, he carried out a test on two separate parts of our house checking for the differences between the brickwork around the building. We are delighted with the outcome of the work and the professionalism with which is was undertaken. Chris has high standards both in the job he is doing and in the way he cleans up after the work is complete. I know we will be using him again for other work we have still to do in and around our property.
Are paint booth was looking a little tired, and was in need of some restoration. So we called in "CJK ABRASIVE BLAST CLEANING AND SURFACE PREPARATION" to abrasive blast the inside walls & celling. Excellent job ! Thanks Chris.

Did an outstanding job on my Land Rover wheels. Making the old girl one step closer to perfection. Thanks Chris
Chris has helped me on a couple of projects the first was some tired cast iron garden furniture, the second was an old wood plane that I wanted to clean up. He did a cracking job on both and I would definitely recommend his work.
Chris is exceedingly passionate about this line of trade. As a former serviceman he tackles every job with tenacity and trust. Metal, wood, bricks, stone etc all brought back to their natural condition. His business has invested wisely in all the up-to-date equipment to ensure CJK are the best around. I would not hesitate in recommending Chris and his team to anyone.
Chris took on the blasting of a 40 year old motorbike seat base that had been previously repaired and badly painted with rubberised underbody sealant. I gave him the job because I knew he'd be sympathetic to the old metalwork and not destroy it with agressive blast media and the result is perfect. He's removed every last bit of old paint and any loose corrosion without blowing big holes everywhere. I'd highly recommend him for work on old motorcycle parts as he really does know what he's doing. Thanks Chris.
Used CJK blasting to strip off some heavy layers of paint from garden furniture for it to be restored and was exceptionally pleased with the result. Fast, friendly service and highly recommend.
Gave Chris my ZX6R frame to prep for powder coating, he did a superb and speedy job and a fab finish. The frame looks like new now. Can highly recommend
