Tarmacadam Flooring Maintenance
Tarmac surfaces are a popular choice for organisations like schools and sport clubs within the UK. Hard court surfaces provide excellent ball bounce and slip resistance qualities for facilities such as MUGAs where a range of sports including netball, tennis and basketball can be played. If you want to keep your tarmac surface in great condition, then you should carry out regular tarmacadam flooring maintenance and be proactive with the cleaning schedule. There are two types of maintenance needed to be carried out, these are proactive and reactive. Proactive maintenance is done to prevent pitch issues and reactive maintenance is done when your surfacing needs to be repaired after it has been damaged.

If you don’t have a macadam maintenance plan set out then it can cause further problems, such as more damage, sports pitch drainage issues and loss of slip resistance. This is why it is necessary to be proactive with tarmacadam flooring maintenance; this should include brushing, pressure washing and also applying chemical treatments which will prevent contamination on the surfa. If the floor has dirt, leaves or litter on it, then these should be removed as quickly as they can. This is because the dirt from the debris can leave contamination upon the flooring which can block the drainage system.

Macadam Surface Cleaning
In order to keep your tarmacadam surfacing in good condition, you will need to conduct regular maintenance. It’s highly recommended to carry out professional macadam surface cleaning at least once a year. By cleaning the court regularly you can take off any dirt and debris which could be blocking the pores in the surface and affecting the porous properties of the area. It’s also important to clean the surfacing regularly, so that the surface does not become slippery. If you do not complete routine cleaning, the surfacing could become slippery and be dangerous for users.
Along with pressure washing the area, we would also recommend applying a chemical treatment to prevent the growth of moss and algae. A moss and algae treatment should really be applied once a year to remove contamination and prevent it growing back. If you need more information regarding the chemical treatment we can apply, please contact us now using the enquiry form.
Maintaining Tarmac Surfaces
More thorough macadam surface cleaning could include repairs, repainting or relining and this should be carried out by specialists to ensure that it is all done correctly. Within time tarmac surfaces can become old, tired and worn out if they do not have an appropriate cleaning plan and have a lot of heavy use. The sports surface could need to have a water based court binder applied and also aggregate acrylic spray coating application onto the flooring. This process will improve the appearance visually and also restore high playing qualities which will make it a better sports surface and facility.
Maintaining tarmac surfaces is vital to ensure you extend the life of the surfacing. By carried out maintenance you will be able to get the most out of your money and best value. If you’ve got any questions regarding the maintenance we can carry out or what you can be doing to maintain your surface, please complete the enquiry form and we will respond.
Water Based Court Binder
The water based court binder can repair damages, such as fretting or cracks upon the surface and when it is applied it can enhance the durability of the pitch. Specialist court binder should only be applied when macadam surface cleaning is complete and there is no dirt or contamination on the surfacing. This is because the dirt can stop the court binder from sticking, which would make it pointless for you to do. When installing sports pitch paint coatings onto macadam surfaces, it’s necessary to discuss the design of the facility before the process begins. There are a range of colours which can be chosen, these include red, blue, green and purple, and it’s even possible to have multiple colours applied. Some surfaces which we are asked to undertake maintenance on just need their line marking re-applied. Line markings are sprayed onto the surfacing and it is a quick and simple process but it’s needed on a high quality facility.

Asphalt Surface Repair
Over time macadam surfaces may become cracked due to excessive use and general wear and tear. It’s important to get these cracks fixed as soon as possible in order to prevent any accidents or injuries of people making use of your area. Our team often complete asphalt surface repair for sports surfaces. This includes filling in the cracks using 2mm emerald stone mixed with a polyurethane binder. Once the cracks have been filled it would be recommended to coat the entire surfacing with a polyurethane binder which will help to strengthen the entire area and prevent fretting. The PU binder will also act as a glue which will help to make paint stick better if you’re getting the surfacing painted once the repairs are completed.
If the surfacing is too damaged for minor repairs, we can offer a full resurface. This can consist of laying a new tarmac wearing course over the existing area to create a brand new surface to play on. This can cancel out any cracks in the surfacing and can help to level the area.
