Our specialists can provide artificial football pitch maintenance services including cleaning and repairs to keep your facility in the best condition. This work needs to be done to make sure that the flooring is safe and can be enjoyed by whoever will be using it. Costs for maintaining these pitches will depend entirely on what needs to be done, the size of the area, and your location. We’ll always try to make our prices as cost effective as possible.
It is important that the right kind of surface maintenance is regularly carried out to maintain the quality of your synthetic sports pitch. This will also ensure that it lasts for as long as possible before it requires resurfacing or rejuvenation. There are a number of different ways which a professional sport surfacing company can clean and maintain your artificial football surfacing. These methods will help to keep it in top condition and reduce future costs for your organisation.
How to Maintain Sport Surfaces
Proactive Maintenance – This is sport surface cleaning which takes place to prevent any damage or weathering to the pitch. Proactive maintenance could include grooming, drag brushing to prevent infill compaction and ensure good water drainage, as well as deep cleaning and moss and algae treatments to stop contamination which damages the synthetic grass fibres of an artificial carpet. By carrying out regular proactive cleaning work it is possible to dramatically enhance the lifespan of your sports area.
Reactive Maintenance – This type of artificial football surface maintenance is carried out to repair any damage and weathering to the pitch to prevent it getting worse and causing more severe problems. Reactive work could include seam and damage repairs, topping up rubber infill to improve the performance and safety characteristics of the facility, or even complete resurfacing if the facility is in very poor condition. The amount of reactive maintenance required in most cases depends entirely on how much time has been set aside for proactive strategies. If a sports pitch is well maintained from day one it can improve.
Football Pitch Cleaning Costs
The synthetic football pitch cleaning costs vary depending on the amount of work carried out by in house staff or whether they want to have weekly brushes of the artificial carpet carried out by specialists. You can have tests done to determine the best type of cleaning and repair plan for your particular surface based on its specification and requirements to ensure it gets the best possible care.
The overall condition of your facility will have the biggest effect on synthetic football surfacing clean and repair costs as more intensive cleaning will need to be carried out on surfacing which is in very bad condition, however only moderate work would need to take place to maintain the quality of a pitch which is already in good condition.

2G Surfacing Rejuvenation
The video below shows our team carrying out a rejuvenation process for a sand filled sports surface. This was done as the infill was contaminated and it was affecting the playing qualities, making it uncomfortable for players. The dirty sand was removed and replaced with a new layer to give it a more natural feel and better performance characteristics.
If you do not take the time to regularly clean and maintain your artificial football surface, you can expose your facility to a number of pitch problems which are easily avoidable with the help of regular maintenance. These problems could include flooding and waterlogging caused by a loss of surface permeability when rubber infill becomes compacted, as well as contamination from moss and algae which damages the artificial grass fibres and negatively affects the playing and safety characteristics of the pitch. These surfaces are all designed to be fully porous, but if they become clogged up with dirt then they will lose these properties. By keeping these thoroughly cleaned you will help to remove any of these contaminants and make sure that the flooring remains permeable.
Woodhouse grove school
Soft Surfaces won a competitive tender to supply and install a new 6528 m² all weather pitch, marked for football, rugby union and three 5-a-side pitches. There is storage at one end for posts and equipment and the complex is enclosed by a 3m high rebound fence. Lighting columns were erected along the perimeter, and lighting bollards to the access path. A large-scale earthworks scheme was undertaken to create a plateau some 900mm above the 100-year flood level in order to accommodate the pitch. SS worked over weekends and during the normal Christmas shutdown to minimise delays.
When AFC Bournemouth wanted to create a new training surface, we looked into the various options. We discussed the performance and playing characteristics of a variety of surfaces. In the summer, we chose a 3G surface (Rhino Turf VT40) which was supplied and installed by Soft Surfaces Ltd. We chose the Rebounce shock-pad to compliment the VT40 surface, as it met the performance, quality and the most natural appearance – so much more realistic in looks, feel and performance than other synthetic surfaces. We have found Soft Surfaces to be very professional and easy to deal and work with.

Golborne High School
I would like to express my thanks to all the staff at Soft Surfaces Ltd for helping our school in the upgrade of our MUGA flooring. We were experiencing serious problems with contaminated sand causing flooding and making the surface dangerous under foot. You undertook a site visit and carried out an infill contamination assessment to investigate the problems. This identified that the sand infill needed replacing to bring the facility back to its correct playing characteristics and porous again. The PE staff in school are extremely impressed with the impact of the work undertaken and have commented that it has made a significant improvement to the MUGA surface. I would certainly recommend Soft Surfaces!
