School Artificial Grass Preventative maintenance programs
Easy Turf has been providing artificial grass maintenance to schools, universities, councils and sports clubs across Melbourne & Sydney for the past 10 years. Problems can occur over time and it is important to schedule a synthetic turf maintenance plan to ensure the longevity and performance of large multi purpose areas, sports courts and fields. 5 reasons an artificial turf maintenance program is beneficial;
1. Keeps artificial grass clean and free from unwanted objects
We first survey the surface and make sure there are no objects or debris. Once the surface area is cleared, we then have our maintenance crew use our dedicated artificial grass ‘SMG Caremax’ ride on machine, which is specifically used for artificial grass maintenance. The infill is picked up through the rotation brushes, cleaned from debris through filter and returned evenly.
2. Keeps grass looking realistic and fresh
The artificial grass machine also brushes up and grooms synthetic grass creating a softer, cleaner surface allowing synthetic fibres to stand more upright. This creates a better playing surface and also helps the area look nice and fresh.
3. Keep infill from compacting too much
Without the appropriate maintenance the infill will become very hard and compacted. This will cause grass to wear out a lot quicker and can also cause injury. Easy Turf will help reduce this impact with the Caremax machine. The de compact function involves the metal tines being engaged which will loosen the infill prior to the cleaning process. This will soften the area helping with longevity and also reducing the risk of serious injury.
4. Increases longevity of grass
An Easy Turf Maintenance program can ensure you receive the longest possible life from your artificial grass product. We provide you with all the necessary upkeep and maintenance solutions to keep your artificial grass looking realistic and new, further protecting your initial installation investment. Easy Turf will attend to any problems areas before they get too serious.
5. Eliminate algae/moss and mold if these are problems.
Over a period of time, algae and moss can become a real issue on artificial grass surfaces. Algae and moss tends to grow in poor drainage (heavily compacted) areas where pools of water sit for long periods of time. During the Easy Turf maintenance program our maintenance workers ensure the entire surface area has sufficient drainage.
