Athletics Track Cleaning
We offer athletics track cleaning services for many different types of sports facilities. This is often carried out at sports clubs and schools to remove dirt from the surface and make sure the flooring is in top condition. We’ll apply a jet wash to the area and brush away and debris which could get stuck in the pores of the track. Doing this helps to prevent issues with contamination and moss growth on the flooring, ensuring that it remains porous and doesn’t get slippery.

How to Clean Running Tracks
When you have a brand new athletics facility installed, you need to make sure that the specialist surfacing is looked after properly so you can be confident that you’ll get the best performance qualities from the sports facility. Depending on the type of surface you have installed, there are different methods of athletics track cleaning and maintenance which can be used to take care of the facility, whether it’s a full running track, long jump runway or high jump fan.
- Polymeric Rubber Track – This EPDM athletics flooring type is a hard porous surface which is extremely versatile and allows water to drain through it quickly and easily, therefore allowing sporting events and training to carry on in wet weather. Athletics surface cleaning for this polymeric surface can include regular light pressure washing and brushing to remove fallen debris such as leaves and litter to prevent them from contaminating the area. Chemical moss and algae treatments can also be applied as a preventative measure to stop contamination and maintain the porosity and safety of the surfacing.
- Needlepunch Synthetic Track – This is a synthetic turf sport surface type which is also porous and extremely durable and can be used for many different activities. The needlepunch specification is installed like a carpet with a layer of sand infill between the fibres to enhance performance. Athletics track cleaning methods for this artificial grass system include drag brushing to spread the sand infill evenly throughout the pile and to remove dirt, as well as chemical treatments to stop contamination from algae and moss.
Preventing Damage to the Track
You should always put a suitable maintenance programme into place for any sports facility to ensure that it’s safe for use by the public or private users, and that it performs to its optimum potential. Without regular care and attention, your running surface, long jump runway or high jump fan could become damaged and contaminated, lose its permeability and begin holding water which can be costly to rectify. However if your running track surface does get damaged we can carry out repairs to fix it, take a look at this page for more details – https://www.sportsandsafetysurfaces.co.uk/athletics/athletics-track/repairs/
