Synthetic turf maintenance
How to take care of your synthetic turf
Italgreen synthetic grass are easily stored in good condition. However, some areas of the playgorund are undeniably more stressed by the action of the athletes, with the result that the infill material may not be uniformly distributed. Furthermore, rainwater collection and disposal systems could lose efficiency. For these reasons, Italgreen recommends an ordinary maintenance of the playing field on a weekly basis.
This maintenance should include the following steps:
- Inspection and removal of dirt and other foreign materials
- Brushing the pitch with a lawn tractor and a scrubber in order to maintain a homogeneous lawn. For an optimal result it is advisable to carry out several passages in the opposite direction, both longitudinally and in a direction transverse to the playing field, with the tractor running slowly and following straight trajectories
- Checking and cleaning of the conduits and the inspection wells
- Possibly, manual reloading with infill materials in areas where it is in short supply
In case of stubborn stains, it is possible to apply water and soap to the portion of the synthetic turf field involved and easily remove the stain - which should however fade over time thanks to the characteristics of the Italgreen synthetic surface - by brushing vigorously. Particular attention should be paid to the loss of petrol and diesel oil on the turf, which could cause the detachment of tufts of grass on site; in this case it is necessary to promptly dry the affected area, possibly also removing the infill material up to the base of the mantle.
As for the painting of the pitch, it could be temporarily operated with water tempera; not gypsum, paint or other aggressive substances against polyethylene. Finally, a monthly disinfection of the field is recommended.
