How to Maintain Wet Pour

Many people think that once a wetpour surface has been installed that it is completely maintenance free however this is definitely not the case.


Although wet pour rubber safety surfaces have extremely low maintenance requirements, they definitely do require some upkeep to ensure they are in good working order and meet standards. Soft Surfaces have been trading since 1997 and can provide information on how to look after your play area surface.


It is the duty of a nursery, school or council to ensure that the play area surfacing is regularly maintained and fit for purpose.

00:00   Hi, guys. This is Dan from Soft Surfaces here. Today, we’re going to be talking about wet pour maintenance.


00:05   Wet pour is actually one of the more popular rubber safety surfaces across the UK; however, this surface does need maintenance from time to time. In this video, we’re going to be breaking down the many different maintenance types for the surface itself.


00:16    To start off with, we’re going to talk about proactive maintenance. Proactive maintenance is a maintenance technique that massively reduce the chances of more serious repairs in the future. This basically involves occasionally brushing and just general upkeep throughout the year of the surface.


00:32  In the event that your wet pour surface requires a small repair, we actually offer wet pour repair kits for these. These are great as the facility owner can actually use the repair kits themselves and carry it out, saving a lot of time and money for the owner. For any more information about wet pour repair packets, just check out our dedicated video.


00:48   Finally, if your wet pour surface itself is severely damaged, you can actually have a resurfacing. There are two types of resurfacing available. The first one is actually a rip up and replace, which is more expensive as it actually involves us ripping up the entire surface and paying with a brand new one. Second option is an overlay of the existing surface, which is a lot more cost-effective.
