On arrival we will assess the artificial grass surface by measuring infill, checking seams, lines and vegetation build up around the pitch.
We apply our Grooming Board to the surface which gets down to the base of the carpet and is dragged in different directions. This de-compacts and brings up infill.
We then use our ATC machine to clean, aerate and brush the astro turf surface. We clean and filter the surface by sieving infill back onto the carpet while catching any dead fibre, gravel, cigarette butts, tape etc.
Our ATC machine further de-compacts the infill with its tines and pulls the infill back into the carpet using the rear drag brush. This step is repeated until the surface is soft and clean with its artificial grass fibres standing up.
We then use a non-abrasive drag mat to drop in any excess infill, leaving the surface rejuvenated and fresh.
We then re-measure the infill levels. There is usually an increase of as much as 10mm-15mm. This is dependant on the condition of the artificial grass surface prior to PST Sport’s maintenance package.
We check all lines and seams again for failures and repair if necessary. We treat surrounding areas with suitable weed killer to kill off any vegetation build up if required.
On completion we provide the client with a detailed maintenance report on what has been carried out by PST Sport and advise on what the client needs to do regularly to keep their astro turf surface in the best possible condition.
