Maintenance of Synthetic Sports Surfaces

There is a school of thought that synthetic sports surfaces are maintenance free while natural grass pitches are labour intensive when it comes to maintenance. However this is not the case they do need a level of maintenance to keep them in good shape and usually to maintain the guarantee issued by the manufacturer.

The secret to a successful pitch is to adopt a maintenance schedule from day 1 and to do a little work often rather than neglecting the schedule for months. This will only lead to a lot of corrective work and expense to revisit and fix at a later date.

On going maintenance should include:

  • Ensuring infill levels are kept at the correct height to support the surface yarns
  • Monitoring any seams failures before they become a problem
  • Keeping the area free of debris, weeds, moss and algae
  • Common good housekeeping on the surface

Not only will it improve the lifespan but it will make the surface look much better!

Maintenance will depend on the usage and location but generally a weekly schedule is ideal certainly twice a month should be a minimum.

LeisureTec can either offer a yearly maintenance contract for an agreed level of service or provide a one off service visit requirement you choose what is best for you. The whole of the UK mainland is covered.

We have several levels of service that we can offer from basic drag brushing to power brushing on sand dressed/filled pitches and power grooming on the latest 3G pitches. This will keep the infill spread even, straighten the pile, keep the infill loose and avoid compaction and will bring to the surface any contaminants. This improves drainage and inhibits the formation of moss/algae.

We can also rejuvenate a pitch that is several years old by removing old contaminated sand and replenishing with new adding years to its lifespan. This can be done for a fraction of the price of a new pitch typically 10-15%.

Other services include line marking and just basic pitch repairs.

The importance of routine maintenance cannot be overstated you have paid a lot of money for your new pitch taking the time and trouble to carry out some good housekeeping on it will give you a better performing and better looking surface for many years to come.

LeisureTec can come in and assess the current state of your pitch whatever the size from a small MUGA all the way up to a full size hockey or football pitch. This inspection visit is carried out free of charge and without any obligation on your part. We can recommend the course of action to deal with the problems that are affecting the pitch.
