Our maintenance programme involves de-compacting, filtering and re-dispersing the infill to return your pitch to optimum condition. Infill can sometimes migrate from the surface due to intense usage or weather conditions and measuring the infill will indicate whether your pitch requires additional infill.
Our maintenance equipment penetrates the surface to decompact infill, which is then evenly distributed. We also check the seams and lines for any damage and repair any that are found. Once complete, our maintenance programme will leave your surface soft and clean with its fibres standing upright. The frequency of maintenance will depend on a number of factors including the type of sport being played and the intensity of use.
HOW DOES OUR 8-STEP ARTIFICIAL GRASS PITCH MAINTENANCE PROCESS WORK?
On arrival we will assess the artificial grass surface by measuring infill, checking seams, lines and vegetation build up around the pitch.
We then use our ATC Machine to clean, aerate and brush the artificial grass surface. We clean and filter the surface by sieving infill back into the carpet while catching any dead fibre, gravel, cigarette butts, tape, etc.
We then use a non-abrasive drag mat to drop in any excess infill, leaving the surface rejuvenated and fresh.
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.
We apply our Grooming Board to the surface which gets down to the base of the carpet and is dragged in different directions. This decompacts and brings up infill.
We then apply our Oscillating Brush to the surface which works the infill back into the fibres ensuring the surface looks fresh and feels soft underfoot.
We then re-measure the infill levels. There is usually an increase of as much as 10mm-15mm. This is dependent on the condition of the artificial grass surface prior to PST Sport’s maintenance programme.
On completion we provide a detailed maintenance report on what has been carried out by PST Sport. We will also advise what needs to be done regularly to keep the artificial turf surface in the best possible condition.
