Synthetic Turf Maintenance Services

Thank you for your interest in our service. Our Maintenance would include the following cultural practices. We have a dedicated Service Unit for Synthetic Turf utilising the world wide respected REDEXIM and WEIDENMANN range of machinery

  • SURFACE BRUSHING. Depending on the intensity of play, brushing of the surface is to level the infill (sand, rubber crumb or both) to ensure uniformity of the surface. A second important reason for brushing a synthetic field is to prevent pile lean and pile flattening. To overcome this, regular brushing in all directions will keep the fibres upright and non-directional. We recommend a minimum of twice a month.
  • DEEP CLEANING of artificial turf is necessary to keep playing surfaces clean, bacteria-free and allow water infiltration. We utilise the Verti-Top 1500 which employs a highly effective synthetic rotary brush to remove debris and top layer infill from the turf, then sifts the debris out in a unique vibratory shaker which redistributes the clean infill back on the field. Finishing the work is a rear lag brush, leaving a clean and smooth playing surface. Incorporated in this machine is a Vacuum unit to remove all fine particles – hair, dust etc.  Our recommendation is four times a year.
  • GROOMING .To loosen and decompact the hardest infill, we utilise the Verti-Groom with a variety of interchangeable tools. The spring steel flexible tines gently lift and break up compacted areas while effectively mixing and incorporating sand infill. Mounted separately or with the spring tines, specially configured rear poly brushes straighten and lift the turf fibres leaving them plush and upright for a soft and level playing surface. This practice is utilised in conjunction with the quarterly Deep Cleaning or when the infill becomes compacted thereby restricting the drainage capability. Our recommendation is four times a year.

  • SPRAYING. We utilise an antimicrobial treatment specifically designed for synthetic turf systems. Delivering durable antimicrobial efficacy, the application continually inhibits the growth of a wide array of bacteria, mould and fungi on every component of a turf system. In addition, odour and other issues associated with microbial contaminants is controlled without leaching chemicals or heavy metals into the environment. We recommend an application four times a year.

The above is our recommendation for the efficient management of a Synthetic Sports Surface.

Proper professional maintenance is critical in preserving and extending the lifespan of your investment. Our standard contract would include all the above recommendations.

In addition, we are “on your doorstep” to attend to all repairs of seams etc. This would be attended to timeously to prevent further costly damage.
