If you have an outdoor tennis facility, you will want to keep it in the best possible condition for safe use all year round. This can be done through regular tennis court cleaning, which we offer as part of our specialist sports facility maintenance services. Depending on the type of surface you have, and the conditions of the court we can offer various cleaning and maintenance methods to prevent damage and fix any issues. We specialise in general cleaning, moss and algae removal, damage repairs and resurfacing. We work all across the UK at various locations in different schools, clubs and domestic homes.
Our experts will be able to offer any advice and help you need when it comes to taking care of your sports facility. Please fill in the contact box on this page to get in touch with us and speak about costs for our different services. We will reply back as soon as we can to give you a quote for the work which needs to be done.
Tennis Court Cleaning Specifications
We can carry out tennis court cleaning for a number of different surface specifications, and the process will vary for each type of facility:
Porous Macadam Surfacing – This is one of the most common hard sports surfacing types. The cleaning process for a tarmac facility will usually be done to get rid of dirt and contaminants on the surface such as litter, leaves and moss. Our team can carry out a thorough professional clean using a specially designed tennis court solution which lifts up debris and pulls it away from the flooring. This is applied using a pressure washer which is angled to ensure it reaches each side of the macadam stones for an outstanding clean. Our company can also apply chemical moss and algae treatments to remove and prevent contaminations. Regular brushing should be done to remove dirt from the macadam floor and prevent it from getting stuck in the pores and causing flooding.
Polymeric Rubber – Another hard court specification which can be used for tennis. The EPDM rubber surfacing can be cleaned in a similar way to macadam courts, with pressure washing using a specialist solution. Moss and algae treatments are applied as part of the tennis facility cleaning process for polymeric sport surfaces as well. You should also brush the flooring on a regular basis to clean away natural matter and litter which might have fallen onto the area.
Synthetic Turf Courts – Sand filled artificial grass and Multisport synthetic turf can be used for tennis facilities as well. They require a slightly different method of cleaning which involves drag brushing through the carpet fibres to remove dirt and redistribute the sand infill. We can carry out a professional rejuvenation process if your artificial grass surface has become badly contaminated with moss. This involved extracting the dirty infill from within the pile and then applying a new layer of sand to hold up the grass fibres.For more information on different sports surfaces we clean and maintain, send us your details using the quick contact form on this page and we’ll offer you some professional advice regarding the costs! Our prices can vary for each project depending on area size, location, ground conditions and many other factors so be sure to give us as much detail as you can about your court.
Tennis Surface Pressure Washing
If you own a hard sports court which has become contaminated, we will carry out tennis surface pressure washing to remove the dirt. This involves using a specialist jet wash tool which sprays water and cleaning solution onto the ground to lift up debris. We will complete this process across the whole area, working in two directions to ensure that the flooring is completely clear from all angles. This cleansing work is ideal for removing moss, leaves and other contaminants which may be stuck onto the floor of your court.
The floor types which can be cleaned using the method are usually macadam and polymeric rubber. The cleansing method leaves these areas free from dirt and ready for a new paint coating if required. It’s important to regularly wash your sport surfaces to ensure they aren’t slippery and that they are safe for users to run around on. You can do this by brushing the flooring regularly to remove any litter or debris which may have fallen onto it.
Case Study: Tennis Court Clean
This video shows a project we recently carried out to clean and repaint a tennis court which had become contaminated with moss and was suffering from poor drainage. Our team completed a professional clean with a jet wash and then applied a new acrylic anti slip paint coating in a two tone green design with white line markings:
Sports Court Drainage Problems
If you don’t thoroughly clean your sports flooring on a regular basis, contaminants can get stuck within the pores and lead to flooding. This is because the dirt affects drainage by blocking up the porous layers and stopping any water from soaking through and leaving the floor. Puddling of dirty water on the area can then lead to more contamination and moss growth which makes the area slippery and unsafe. It’s important to deal with these issues as soon as they appear to prevent the drainage problems from spreading. Completing a thorough cleaning process will help to reduce the chances of damage and help keep the area completely safe.
This type of project is completed frequently by our experienced team, and we would be happy to provide you with more details on what we can do.
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.
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!
