If you have an artificial sports surface, then you will know about the importance of carrying out regular cleaning.

Our goal is to provide each customer with well-targeted, individually tailored programs.
Professionals always ensure that a good quality upkeep package is put in place to begin immediately after installing an artificial sports pitch. Many contractors across the UK supply and install synthetic turf pitches and claim they are ‘maintenance free’; however, this is not the case.
By thoroughly maintaining your surface, it can dramatically increase the life span of synthetic fibres whilst ensuring it works to its maximum potential. In addition, an artificial grass pitch must often meet the national governing body standards, which includes: FIFA, The FA, RFL (Rugby Football League), RFU (Rugby Football Union), FIH, IAAF, ITF, and IATS.
With many different types of synthetic sports surfacing used in the UK, it is beneficial to have an upkeep programme in place that is bespoke to the pitch and playing characteristics needs. We offer various services for all different sports surfaces, including hockey pitch cleaning and maintenance of multi-use games areas.
It is the role of the caretaker or keeper of an artificial surface at schools, colleges, leisure centres, sports clubs and universities across the country to ensure they are regularly checking for damaged areas of synthetic turf and whether the infill levels are as they should. If the infill becomes too low, this can cause the fibres to wear away much more quickly and result in repairs that may not be within the organisation's budget.

Types of artificial turf sport surfacing maintenance include:
Artificial turf pitches need regular testing to make sure that they are working correctly. The assessments that occur include compaction testing, turf depth testing, porosity testing, surface performance testing and surface safety testing. In addition, owners need to have the surfaces tested annually to assess whether the synthetic surfacing still meets the standards set out by the national governing body.
The assessment will then determine whether the artificial surfacing needs repairs, infill decompaction, infill replacement and new surfacing upgrade. Regular maintenance is essential with any sports surface, particularly for MUGA court facilities used regularly for many different activities.

One of the most important parts of artificial surfaces maintenance and surrounding areas is deep cleaning. Cleaning your synthetic surface correctly can help to redistribute the sand infill and stop the facility from becoming waterlogged. To complete the deep cleaning of your sports facility, you will need to get a professional company with expert knowledge and specialist tools.
We can carry out deep cleaning for all weather pitches at a competitive rate. During the deep cleaning process, the top layer of infill is removed and cleaned, the clean sand is then returned, and moss and algae are removed. Our specialist machine can redistribute the sand evenly, which helps to improve the porosity of the surface.
If you do not complete regular cleaning and upkeep on all weather pitches near me, the surfacing can become contaminated. If contaminants get onto the surfacing, it can lose its porosity, leading to waterlogging and flooding. So if you notice that your sports facility is starting to hold water, it is vital to get the pitch maintained straight away to prevent more costly repairs. We also offer maintenance for athletics surfaces too.

If you have not carried out the necessary maintenance and repairs of your sports pitch over time, we are able to resurface synthetic pitches completely. We can resurface worn out pitches and surrounding areas and replace them with brand new synthetic sports carpets ranging from 2G up to 5G. All-weather pitch resurfacing is great if you want to improve the playing characteristics of your artificial grass surface.
A brand new surface with the best performance properties that meet up to various accreditations. Not only does resurfacing improve the performance properties, but also improves the safety of the pitch. If a school or sports club has an old and worn pitch, it's vital to get the facility resurfaced as soon as possible to ensure the players are safe when playing on the facility.
Maintaining the structure of your turf requires regularly repositioning the sand infill and blades using a large natural bristle broom for smaller areas, but professional turf brushes are great options for those with expansive areas of turf.
Regularly removing leaves and debris using a leaf blower, stiff brush or plastic rake is also a good maintenance practice. It is also good to trim hedges and trees often to limit the number of leaves falling onto the lawn. Apply weed killer twice a year to the whole area to prevent weeds from growing and to kill any stray ones.
Simply sweeping the lawn with a normal broom would solve the problem. The fibres were just flat for a brief time, but they would rise and be seen in all their glory.
Your fake grass will seem to be brand new once more. Aside from normal wear and tear and injuries, artificial turf owners should take a few simple measures to ensure the consistency and durability of their turf.
Artificial turf can last anywhere from 15 to 25 years, depending on the application. Cleaning the lawn of debris, rinsing it periodically, and cross grooming it will make artificial turf last a long time.
Asset management and life expectancy are improved, resulting in the avoidance of premature machinery and equipment maintenance. Due to running on a scheduled basis rather than a crash basis to repair breakdowns, there are fewer overtime charges and more efficient usage of maintenance staff.
