The sand or rubber infill in a synthetic turf pitch can become contaminated over time if it is not properly maintained, this leads to flooding and contamination from moss and algae.
Maintenance can be done to decompact the infill by drag brushing to separate the particles and redistribute them throughout the synthetic carpet surface.
When looking to maintain your sports pitch you may use a variety of approaches, including drag mat / brushing as well as moss and algae treatments.
You might find that compacted hard synthetic turf infill in is causing problems with your synthetic pitch. If an artificial grass surface is not correctly maintained, the rubber and sand-infill will become trapped deep within the fibres of turf over time leading to poor drainage. An artificial grass system is made up from porous materials with a permeable membrane allowing the drainage of surface water and making certain the system remains SUDS compliant. If the rubber and sand-infill becomes compacted deep within the manmade grass fibres the turf can become contaminated with dirt, mud and other debris causing the facility to puddle or waterlog in places. If this does occur the pitch will become less safe and the performance will suffer.

2G sand dressed and sand filled pitches must be regularly maintained with a drag brush and mat in order to distribute the sand-infill and ensure the sand is spread evenly throughout the infill. A 3G sports surface with a sand and rubber infill must also be thoroughly maintained by ensuring the infill levels are topped up. If the infill levels get too low the manmade grass fibres can become worn and damaged affecting the playing characteristics of the surfacing. These problems could also lead to synthetic turf contamination which can make the surface flood and become even more damaged.
