Synthetic Hockey Field Cleaning
There are lots of different ways in making sure that you get the best out of your sports pitch to ensure it has the best performance characteristics and the best product life; the best way to do this is through a regular hockey pitch maintenance scheme. The two main types of hockey pitch cleaning process are proactive and reactive. Proactive maintenance is taking an active approach to making sure that your sports pitch is safe and clean on a regular basis without there being any problem in the first place, whereas reactive work fixes damage which has been done.
Taking these steps ensures that your 2G synthetic grass facility has great performance and safety characteristics and provides a positive sporting experience for those who use it. This type of maintenance could include grooming the grass fibres and making sure the sand is properly spread across the entire surface or just making sure the hockey facility is completely clean. However if there is an issue for your sports pitch, reactive hockey surface cleaning and repairs would be the ideal solution. This includes repairs, resurfacing, upgrades and renovation jobs which are designed to make your old hockey pitch as good as new.
2G Surfacing Rejuvenation
Sports pitch rejuvenation can also be carried out to fix a hockey surface which is holding water or has become dirty and contaminated. This process involves extracting the dirty sand infill and replacing it with another layer of clean silica sand to give the pitch its performance qualities back. Rejuvenating a sand filled grass surface also helps it retain its drainage capabilities to prevent flooding and keep the pitch as an all weather facility. Synthetic grass maintenance is key in making sure that you get the most out of your facility and it’s as safe as possible for the people using it.
Costs of Maintaining Hockey Pitches
The costs of maintaining hockey pitches will vary depending on the work being done and the severity of the problem that is being worked on. Firstly, reactive cleaning and repairs are key in ensuring you get the most out of your facility. This means that the costs could be seen as an investment as in the long term, you won’t have to spend money on renovation and repairs which will be far more expensive than regular reactive maintenance. With regular care and attention you will also greatly extend the product life of the 2G sand filled surface type, which means you won’t have to get the synthetic carpet resurfaced for a much longer period of time which will obviously keep the overall costs down for your institution.
You can have sports surface testing carried out to assess the condition of your facility to help determine an appropriate hockey pitch maintenance scheme. These tests could include ball roll assessments, slip resistance tests and water drainage checks, carrying out surface testing helps to make sure that the sports facility is safe for players and provides good performance characteristics
