Depending upon the design and specification of artificial grass, a synthetic sports pitch is filled with sand or sand and rubber in order to ensure the fake grass fibres stand upright. The infill within the sports carpet fibres also protect the backing of the synthetic turf and improve the playing characteristics when playing on the surface.

A regular maintenance procedure would include regularly distributing the sand and making certain that it has not become compacted. The conservation of the artificial surface in this way improves the safety and performance of your sports surfacing and ensures the sand-infill does not become flattened deep within the fibres, leading to poor drainage and waterlogging of the pitch.

How to Prevent Contamination Near Me

If you're looking at how to avoid contamination, it's important to carry out routine maintenance for your sports surface. Regular upkeep which we would recommend includes:

  • Clearing of surface debris such as leaves, litter, mud and dried dirt to ensure longer life expectancy.
  • Drag mat / Brushing – Using a specialised mat or brush to decompact the surfacing and spread it evenly around the sports surface.
  • Topping up high wear areas with new sand-infill to prevent excess wearing of artificial grass fibres.
  • Chemical treatments to avoid moss, algae and weed growth upon the sport surfacing.
  • Deep cleaning machinery – To decompact infill trapped deep within the synthetic turf fibres and prevent it from becoming contaminated with dirt.

Each of these maintenance processes is done to avoid contamination and also to stop synthetic pitch flooding as these problems can make the surface unsafe and cause damage.

Remove Contaminated Sand Infill

If you are interested to know how we remove contaminated sand infill, our nearby experts can carry out a full rejuvenation. The rejuvenation process is a great way to remove dirty sand-infill and replace it with new silica sand. During the rejuvenation process, the dirty sand-infill is extracted.

You can then choose from a recycled rejuvenation or an ordinary rejuvenation. Recycled rejuvenations include cleaning the existing sand-infill, whereas standard rejuvenations involve replacing the infill with brand new silica sand. After this has been done, the sand-infill is spread around the pitch to make sure the best porosity. 

Dirty Contaminated Synthetic Turf Infill

It's important that the infill is monitored on a regular basis to make certain that has not become compacted deep in the synthetic grass. If the sand-infill becomes too hard and compact, the natural drainage of your surface may suffer meaning that the system is no longer porous. Artificial turf pitches are made up of permeable materials that allow the drainage of water.

We can carry this out for a number of sports including rugby pitches. For more info on rugby pitch maintenance please click here If the surfacing becomes contaminated with dirty sand the pitch may no longer be SuDS compliant and can become waterlogged preventing the play of sport.
