The first stage of upkeep for hockey surfaces should always be a regular proactive process which can be completed by someone at your organisation. Upkeep of sports surfaces is vital if you want to keep the facility in the best condition. For a sand-filled or sand-dressed surface, the infill is extremely important in keeping the synthetic pitch fibres upright and giving the pitch good playing qualities. If the sand infill is left to get dirty and compacted, this can lead to drainage problems as water can't soak through and ends up pooling on top of the surface. Drag brushing, deep cleaning and specialist chemical treatments can all help to keep dirt off the pitch and stop it from getting stuck in the infill. The drag brushing will also redistribute the infill throughout the whole sports surface to keep the playing characteristics even and consistent. As one of the most popular surfacing types for hockey, sand-dressed pitch maintenance https://www.artificialpitchmaintenance.co.uk/sand-dressed/ is vital for maintaining and good quality surface which is safe for the users.
The work of maintaining synthetic hockey pitches can vary for each establishment depending on its location and other features of the surrounding area. For example, a sand-filled sports field which has a lot of trees nearby would probably require more maintenance as leaves and dirt are more likely to fall onto the area. With a surface like this, care should be taken to prevent contamination from things like moss and algae as these can escalate to further damage.
While carrying out synthetic field maintenance can prevent issues, over time some damage can still occur, however, we complete repairs to get the surface back to its best quality. If the sand infill gets dirty and compacted, we will do a test to check the level of contamination and then complete a sports pitch rejuvenation process.

This is done to remove the dirty infill completely and then install a new layer which gives the facility greatly improved performance. Maintaining synthetic pitches can also include specialist seam repairs if the carpet has become ripped or damaged. Depending on the level of work needed, we will devise a personalised quote for the work to ensure the best results at a good value price.

Some people do not follow the correct maintenance plan which causes synthetic turf to become damaged and worn out.
