The sports that our surfaces are installed for include football, rugby, tennis, netball, basketball and hockey. The surface materials we specialise in are macadam, polymeric, needlepunch, 2G sand dressed turf, 2G sand filled turf and 3G artificial grass. All of the surface types could be used for multi use games areas where numerous activities are played. Each one of these outdoor flooring specifications will require some maintenance, in order to keep it in great condition and performing at a high quality. Not all the surfacing has the same cleaning process carried out, you have to treat each surface individually and have a unique plan.
Maintaining Sport Facilities
Maintaining sport facilities is an important part of keeping sports pitches in good condition. When we install sport pitches, we always suggest and explain to the client about the importance of having a sports facility maintenance schedule and how it can keep your surface in excellent performance condition and extend its life expectancy. We can help design a specific cleaning plan for your sports pitch surfacing to keep it safe and to maintain the playing qualities. There are two types of work that can be carried out; there are proactive and reactive methods. Proactive maintenance is a process you do to prevent damages occurring and reactive maintenance is done when you need to repair the surface after it has become damaged or worn over time.
Make sure you contact us if you need any advice about maintenance for an outdoor activity court or pitch. We offer helpful information on the costs and the work that needs to be done for each surfacing type.
Sports Surface Cleaning
When carrying out sports surface cleaning, we always advise that being proactive is better as it can prevent serious damages occurring and you are also keeping on top of it regularly. The types of proactive maintenance for each surfacing type will differ, this is because they have individual performance and surface qualities and different needs. Preventative cleaning on synthetic surfaces will normally include grooming, drag mats, drag brushing, decompaction, deep cleaning and algae treatment. Reactive work includes repairs, sports surfacing rejuvenation, resurfacing, upgrading surfacing and additional pitch infill.
In this video you can see our team carrying out maintenance to a synthetic sport pitch. This process involved removing contaminated sand infill and replacing it with a new clean layer to improve the playing qualities.
Activity Surfacing Maintenance
Macadam surfaces require a low amount of maintenance which is why a lot of schools and educational organisations have them installed. This may be as simple as jet washing and brushing the flooring when needed to remove dirt and contaminants. Polymeric surfacing will need light pressure washing and the facility might need some repairs over time if it suffers from overuse. The needlepunch Multisport synthetic surfacing is commonly installed for activity flooring in schools, and these facilities typically get a lot of use.
Needlepunch turf normally requires a low amount of cleaning, however brushing and redistribution of infill should be done regularly, if it is not looked after it could need more specialist cleaning such as a rejuvenation to replace the infill. Sand dressed and sand filled surfaces normally require more proactive work such as algae treatment and the reactive cleaning may be rejuvenation and drag matting. 3G artificial grass needs much less maintenance than natural grass but they will normally need to have drag matting, decompaction, grooming, chemical treatments, infill top ups and resurfacing in the future. For more information on activity surfacing maintenance, make certain to contact our team and we will get back to you right away.
Sports Pitch Rejuvenation
Over time your synthetic turf pitch may become waterlogged or flooded due to dirt and debris getting stuck within the pores of the surface, causing the area to lose its porous properties. This can be very bad for the pitch and can cause further problems if not dealt with as soon as possible. We carry out sports pitch rejuvenation for your facility to improve the play of the area and restore the permeable qualities.
During a rejuvenation, the dirty sand and/or rubber infill is extracted and replace with new infill. The sand is then distributed across the area which will help to improve the porosity or the facility. We complete rejuvenations at a reasonable price, so please contact us now if you require more information.

We can provide specialist sports surface cleaning on each surface, some previous problems on artificial surfaces have been compaction, contamination and flooding. This can happen to any type of sports pitch specification when dirt, leaves or litter is left on the surface and not removed. The debris can start to contaminate and this then will block the drainage system and cause the all-weather pitch to flood and stop being porous. When this happens you need to have professionals to carry out the job as it is a big issue and may be made worse if it is not fixed and repaired quickly.
