Synthetic Turf Maintenance: Why Do You Need to Care for Your Astro Turf Surface?

31st July 2018

Over the last few months in which Synthetic Turf Maintenance have been operating, we have seen so many artificial turf and astro turf/3G surfaces neglected as people haven’t been provided the relevant information in looking after their sports surface.

It seems lots of companies out there install their pitch and then that is the end of the line, however at STM we pride ourselves on our continuing aftercare so that you get the most out of our pitch which will last for up to 20 years!

Some types of sports products, especially 3G rubber crumb become compacted and therefore do not perform the way they should do. There are certain measures you can take to prevent your surface being subject to contaminants:

  • Litter picking
  • Reinforcing rules- not allowing certain items to be brought onto the surface such as food and chewing gum in particular!
  • Owning your own power sweeper and brushing after every 10 hours of play
  • Outsourcing some areas of your maintenance and having a clear schedule in place
