There are many misconceptions that synthetic surfaces require little or no maintenance, however to ensure the longevity and performance of your synthetic pitch a bespoke maintenance regime should be established from day one. CLS Sports offer a range of artificial turf maintenance services tailored to your facility. These are dependent on pitch usage, the nature of the sport played and the type of synthetic turf.
Using innovative, industry leading machinery and equipment CLS Sports offer the following services:
Compaction can be a major issue over time if your synthetic pitch is not correctly maintained. If the carpet fibres and infill become compacted it can reduce the efficiency of the pitch drainage system and significantly affect the performance of the surface.
Infill Top-ups and Redistribution
To ensure the correct characteristics for play it is essential the correct infill levels are maintained. Infill will inevitably reduce over time as it can migrate off the pitch via player’s boots, maintenance equipment and windy weather conditions.
Uneven distribution of infill can also be a major problem. Our specialist redistribution machinery can ensure a level and even surface.
Using specialist brushes CLS can treat the surface to ensure the carpet pile is in a raised position and the infill is evenly distributed helps prolong the life of your synthetic surface and ensure decompaction of the surface is avoided.
CLS can also offer a more comprehensive maintenance service by carrying out a deep-clean. This process decompacts the infill, extracts any contamination, cleans the surface and redistributes the infill. We recommend this process is carried out every year or every 2 years as a minimum.
As soon as damage occurs it should be repaired as soon as possible to avoid the risk of slips and trips and further damage. CLS offer a full repair service for all types of synthetic turf.
