SAUDI TURF TEAM Tennis Court Maintenance For Acrylic Surfaces

SAUDI TURF TEAM Tennis Court Maintenance For Acrylic Surfaces

Acrylic sport surfaces are very durable and require little maintenance. Basic cleaning will go a long way in preventing premature wear and staining. Here are some tips for maintaining your investment and extending the life of your sport surface between resurfacing cycles.

• Clean your court at least once a month. Watch for evidence of mold or mildew in shaded areas and corners where organic debris tends to accumulate. Indoor courts require both frequent vacuuming and at least one annual wet cleaning with mild detergent solution and soft bristled equipment. Acrylic coatings do not support fungus growth, so growth of fungus or mold is a result from food and drink spills, decaying matter, or other foreign materials on the surface feeding these organisms. To remove mold, fungus & other organisms on the acrylic surface use:

2 parts household bleach, mixed with 1 part water. Use this solution to treat affected areas. Scrub gently with soft bristled brush and rinse thoroughly after a few minutes.

Rinsing the court with water is usually sufficient for general cleaning. If there are visible stains on the court surface, a mild detergent can be applied prior to gentle scrubbing with a soft bristled brush. Here is a mild detergent formula:

Combine 4 parts water with 2 parts TSP (trisodium phosphate) and 1 part household beach, when mildew present.

• Remove standing water

Rain showers help clean your court. However, dirt accumulates in standing water, leaving stains and piles of debris. This acts like sandpaper under the players' feet and creates abrasion on the surface. Remove water from birdbaths as often as possible. Court Irrigation systems around the court should not spray on the court.

• Remove foreign matter

Leaves and pine needles not only can stain your court, but also are breeding grounds for mold and mildew. It is especially important to remove leaves in the fall and keep your court free of debris all winter.

• Use proper equipment

Water brooms are a great tool for cleaning tennis court surfaces. Some brands use up to 75% less water than a pressure washer or hose and much less time spent in labor. When using a pressure washer or water broom, limit pressure to 70 p.s.i.
