The Importance of Synthetic Turf Maintenance for Spring Athletics
With warm, spring weather and a new athletic season on the horizon, the time has come to begin your seasonal turf maintenance program. After a long and unpredictable winter, it is important to make sure you perform each safety check and make sure you are ready for players to take the field again.
A standard turf maintenance visit will be comprehensive, checking each aspect of your field to ensure it is performing at its highest level. The surface hardness level will be one of the first things tested to make sure it meets industry standards. With the risk of concussions on the rise in contact sports, keeping the turf soft and checking the shock absorption level will keep your athletes at a lower risk for injury. Performing regular GMax Testing will allow you to monitor the performance of the shock pads.
Debris affects play and can also provide additional risks to athletes running on the field. Divots left from standing goal posts and heavy snow can lead to tripping risks, especially during games. A routine maintenance check and rubber infill migration will be able to restore the flat surface to keep players safe.
Lifespan of the field
Synthetic turf is an investment that can last for years to come. Testing your field’s functionality and performing necessary maintenance will ensure that you will be able to use your field for athletics and events for the intended lifespan without issue.
