Absence of an appropriate maintenance programme will over time lead to a build up of contaminants in the infill of a synthetic sports pitch. This will not only change the playing characteristics of the synthetic surface but also lead to problems with pitch drainage. During periods of heavy rain clients may notice that tide marks or silt areas appear on the surface. These will have been caused by the water backing up and flushing out the contaminants from the infill, depositing it on the surface as it slowly drains.It is imperative that these areas are removed due to obvious health and safety reasons and for the aesthetics of the surface.
Our Winter Revival™ tackles this issue cleaning the surface and removing the silt. However clients should be aware that it will not necessarily address the core issues of the problem. The presence of this material should be regarded as a symptom of problems the surface is experiencing, and consider a full summer Revite® or Rejeneration®. If your artificial pitch shows any signs of silting or standing water call us immediately so we can carry out a full assessment of your synthetic surface.
