Through compaction and contamination, synthetic grass sports pitches can start to flood as the pores in the surface get blocked and water can't drain away so it sits on the pitch.
We can rectify these problems by carrying out a deep clean or rejuvenation which removes dirt from within the synthetic carpet and decompacts the infill to allow water drainage again.
Whether your looking to prevent flooding occurring on your school, nursery or leisure centres sports courts, we are on hand to help.
Synthetic turf pitch flooding can be a problem. Over time an artificial grass sports surface can acquire dirty and compacted infill which become trapped deep within turf fibres. If the in fill is left untreated, it's very likely that the surface will become less permeable and often leads to total waterlogging of the pitches. There are many people in the UK asking the question; ‘Do I need to maintain my artificial sports pitch?’ and the answer is a resounding yes. Although an artificial facility is an excellent alternative to a natural grass sports pitches it is incredibly important that it's thoroughly maintained year round once the facility has been installed.

There could be a range of reasons as to why your artificial pitch is flooding. The msot common cause will be that there has not been enough maintenance carried out on the facility and this has caused the sand infill to start blocking the drainage. This then means that the surfacing is likely to become contaminated with moss and algae because of the amount of water which is being held on the area. When you notice the surface is not draining and not being as porous as it should be, this is why you will need a specialist maintenance company closest to you to restore the surfacing.
