MUGA Surface Maintenance

Contact Us

As specialist contractors we can carry out multi use games area maintenance to help keep sports facilities in good condition. This is available for many surface types including macadam, polymeric rubber and synthetic turf. Each of these are used for multipurpose areas as they have diverse playing qualities. Our team can complete cleaning and general repairs to these surfaces, ensuring that they are safe for players to use.

Please contact our team today if you have any questions about the different cleaning and repair services that we offer. Fill in the enquiry form on this page and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible to discuss the prices. There are many options depending on your surfacing type but we’ll be able to advise you on the best methods to look after your facility.

Multipurpose Court Maintenance

There are two main types of multi use games area maintenance, both equally as important as one another. Proactive maintenance is making sure that your sports pitch is kept in the best possible condition it can be throughout its usage. This could be regularly grooming the grass fibres so that they maintain their structure, allowing for an even playing field, ultimately improving playing characteristics. It’s also important that you regularly drag brush or drag mat an artificial 3G grass surface, this is designed to spread the rubber infill across the pitch evenly, giving the overall surface the structure required for good quality usage. For reactive maintenance on a MUGA we can carry out repairs, infill top up and application of new spray coatings to ensure that the facility meets requirements of each relevant sports governing body in terms of performance and safety.

For hard court MUGA surfaces such as macadam and polymeric rubber, it is necessary to regularly brush and pressure wash the area to remove any dirt and debris which could contaminate the flooring. MUGA maintenance can also be reactive, this being regular repairs, rubber infill top up, rejuvenation and renovation of the multi use games area facility. The main time reactive MUGA cleaning is required is after your sports pitch has suffered any damage or vandalism which has a negative effect on the playing quality. Regular cleaning of the multi sport flooring will help increase product life, allowing for you to rent the pitch out more and get more use out of it, ultimately increasing your return on investment.


Costs of Maintaining MUGA Surfacing

The costs of maintaining MUGA surfacing can vary massively depending on what treatment the surface needs, however the costs of keeping your facility properly maintained and cared for will not be as expensive as getting the entire surface replaced due to lack of maintenance. We can offer a scheme that could take place weekly or monthly, obviously the more frequent the cleaning the better the quality of pitch but you can reduce costs of maintaining MUGA surfacing by having it done less frequently. We also offer surface testing for both safety and performance qualities of the sports pitch or court, this determines which particular attention the facility needs, allowing for more control over what happens to your facility and budget costs. For more details on multi use games area maintenance of hard court surfaces, check out this page – which gives further information on the work we can do.

This video shows the process of  sand infill rejuvenation for a 2G synthetic MUGA pitch which had become dirty and contaminated. We carried out specialist testing of the infill to assess the amount of contamination and then removed the dirty infill and replaced it with a new clean layer to improve the performance qualities.

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.

AFC Bournemouth

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. 

Banister Primary School

We believe we received good value for money by opting to use Soft Surfaces and would like to thank the team for making it painless and stress-free installation experience. We were particularly impressed with the degree of flexibility your exercised as we wanted to change the perimeter area. It’s also important that I state how impressed we were with the cleanliness and tidiness of the work; the site was spotless upon completion. Likewise, the after service has been good and we appreciate that you’ve stayed in touch to make sure we were pleased with the end product. In summary i would be happy to reccomend Soft Surfaces without hesitation or reservation; it was a pleasure doing business with you!

Activity For All

Soft Surfaces came to run a brief presentation on the advantages of their product and why he felt that this was best value and straight away we understood what we was getting as a product, service and installation. I am more than happy with how the project ran with it being delivered ontime, within budget and now have a great football artificial 3G surface. I would strongly recommend dealing with James Dooley at Soft Surfaces who will talk you through the various costs, specifications and finer details because would definitely like to point out that the cheapest is not always the best value. Massive thank you to the team for providing us now with a thriving new facility!

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!

We aim to offer a helpful and great value service which gives you the end result you need at a price which suits your individual budget.
