If dirt or mildew is allowed to build up it can cause premature wear of your court surface. A soft bristled brush should be used to remove any accumulation. Do not use a shovel as the head can scrape the surface. If necessary a power washer can be used but it is recommended to prepare the area for washing by turning off any power outlets or fixtures and pre-rinsing any plants, bushes, flowers or grass surrounding your tennis court. This will prevent damage from the cleaning detergent and also help to reduce the risk of staining.URL:https://tennis-court-maintenance.uk/
Standing water or puddles should be removed from your court as soon as they appear. Long term water penetration can soften and stain your court surfaces, it also creates a more abrasive playing environment.
Long-Term Maintenance Planning: Extending the Life of Your Court
Check for mold, mildew and algae. These should be scrubbed off by a soft brush with a combination of two parts bleach to one part water. A light pressure wash may be required to complete the cleaning.
Fungus grows best in shaded areas and is usually found in areas that remain damp and have some type of nutrient present. It is important to regularly sweep these areas and lightly spray with a combination of fungicide and bleach.
Cracks need to be repaired as soon as possible in order to avoid further damage to your court. We recommend using the ARMOR crack repair system. This is designed to spread the stress of a crack over a wide area of expandable fabric. It is a much more effective repair solution than traditional “crack fillers” which just bond with the surface.
