With over 20 years experience in the sports surfacing industry Astroturf Contractors are not only experts in the installation and maintenance of all-weather astroturf pitch surfaces but our professional team can advise on the maintenance of your facility to ensure that your sports surfacing not only always looks its best but is safe to play on too.
When you have a brand new all-weather turf pitch installed you will want to ensure that it stays in top quality for as long as possible.
This is where astroturf maintenance is so important. With a regular and thorough maintenance schedule, you can be sure that your sports surfacing not only looks its best but, is as safe as possible too.
A well-maintained surface can reduce the chances of injury due to slipping or tripping on contaminations on the turf. The right maintenance will also guarantee that the porosity of the surfacing is kept to its maximum efficiency, avoiding waterlogging of your pitches.
There are two main types of astroturf maintenance, both as important as each other; reactive and proactive maintenance. Find out more about what our team can do here.
Reactive maintenance is where you deal with a problem that has already arisen, so this would include making repairs to surface rips or problems as well as general resurfacing or infill rejuvenation.
"Very professional, easy to talk to and place an order and outstanding customer service and amazing quality sports surfaces."
In some cases, you may need to reconstruct the whole facility if it has been neglected. This can be similar in cost to the construction process.
For more information on what reactive maintenance you can carry out, please complete our enquiry form now. A member of our team will be able to offer advice as well as provide you with some costs.
Proactive maintenance is the upkeep that anticipates problems before it happens, in order to prevent it. Examples including drag brushing your turf regularly to remove potential contamination like twigs and levels; this will also help spread the infill around again to ensure a level field and stop piles of sand building up.
A deep surface clean is another example of proactive maintenance activity. This will further remove potential contaminants and avoid problems caused by moss or algae.
With the right proactive maintenance, reactive maintenance may rarely need to be carried out.
If you would like more information on the maintenance services we can carry out make sure to contact our team today. As soon as we receive your enquiry we will get back to you with expert advice and information on costs involved.
Synthetic Pitch Maintenance Costs
When you purchase a sports surfacing, the cost of all-weather astroturf should be considered an investment to the safety and comfort of your customers, clients, team members or pupils.
The cost of astroturf is generally reflective of the quality, but the biggest factor in price will be the surface area you are looking to cover.
Synthetic pitch maintenance costs can vary depending on what works need doing. If it is an annual clean, this will be a lot cheaper than a full resurface. We recommend regular maintenance in order to avoid the more costly repairs and resurfaces.
Obviously the type of surface for the MUGA or particular sports pitch will be another factor.

Cleaning Synthetic Pitches
Cleaning synthetic pitches should be done regularly. This will help remove the moss and algae on the pitch and allow players to perform better.
If you do not clean the pitch regularly your facility may become flooded, as the surface could get blocked and waterlogged due to dirt. If you continue to neglect your court, this may result in a resurface being needed.
It is recommended to clean you pitch annually for the best results. Cleaning your facility will not only make the area look much better, but will also improve the playing characteristics on the pitch.
