Polymeric rubber is a popular surfacing option for a range of sports including athletics, tennis, netball, basketball and multi use games areas where a number of activities can be played in one place. This EPDM rubber sports surface provides excellent ball bounce and slip resistance qualities, as well as being fully porous to allow water to drain through it, preventing flooding and waterlogging. It’s important to carry out regular polymeric surface maintenance to maintain these performance characteristics, and to keep the sports facility safe for those who use it.
This specialist maintenance could include brushing and pressure washing to remove debris, and repairs to surface damage caused by overuse and vandalism, as well as repainting and reline marking to give the court a fresh new look. Chemical treatments can also be applied to the EPDM rubber surfacing to inhibit contamination from moss and algae; this helps to maintain good water drainage and prevents flooding of the surface.
If you don’t carry out proactive maintenance for a polymeric sports court, the surface could quickly become damaged and worn out, meaning the performance and safety characteristics are affected and the surface may become slippery and unsuitable for use. This is why it’s important to regularly clean and maintain your rubber sports surface to ensure it performs well and is gives users a positive playing experience, whether it’s for recreational or professional use.

Polymeric Surfaces Cleaning Costs
The costs for polymeric surfaces cleaning will vary for each job depending on the condition of the sports court or track. If the surfacing is in a very bad state and requires a lot of repairs or resurfacing, this will of course be more expensive than simply pressure washing and brushing the surface. This is why it’s important to carry out regular proactive polymeric surface maintenance to look after your sports facility and prevent the effects of damage and weathering from overuse.
