Maintaining Your Tennis Court: Cleaning Chemicals
Posted on: March 11th, 2015
Tennis Court Maintenance
A build-up of debris on a tennis court can have a detrimental effect on the surface and the performance of the players. Basic cleaning products alone will not sufficiently clean the court, which is why specialist tennis court cleaning chemicals must be used to ensure the surface remains in pristine condition for longer. Regular surface maintenance on your court needn’t be a chore; simply remove any visible debris and treat all stains as soon as they occur.
Tennis courts must undergo a thorough, deep clean once a year (possibly more often depending on the location of the court) to ensure the surface is free of moss, weeds and debris and completely safe to use. While resurfacing is inevitable eventually, the lifespan of your court can be significantly improved if the correct maintenance plan is implemented. If left unattended, the surface of the court will quickly become damaged which can be an expensive problem to repair, so remember to schedule your court in for it’s annual professional clean.
The correct usage of approved chemical agents is the only way of completely removing moss, weeds and plant debris. Proper practice must be followed when choosing, applying and handling chemical cleaning agents to prevent any damage to the surface, players or the surrounding area. It is strongly advised that a professional surface maintenance company carries out a consultation of your court to ensure the most suitable cleaning products are used. A few of the problems that can arise from using the incorrect chemical cleaning agents include:
- paint splitting
- failure to control moss/algae growth
- loss of surface traction
Combining removal and preventative measures will not only ensure all moss and weeds are carefully eliminated, it will also stop any growth from returning for as long as possible. Therefore, you can enjoy total peace of mind that your court will remain in top working order for many years to come.
All dirt, debris and contamination must be completely removed from the surface so the process of recolouring and relining can be carried out correctly. If professional cleaning is not carried out in time, the anti-slip colour coating or line marking will simply be painted over dirt which will wash away when the court is next cleaned.
