Surfacing Cleaning

We offer a Surfacing Cleaning service to meet your needs. Guided by standard maintenance procedures our service ensures that the surface is kept clean, is safe for all standards of user, the drainage of surface water is maintained throughout the surfacing life span and the facility looks well kept at all times.

The Process

Our Surfacing Cleaning service including sweeping leaves, pine needles and other detritus from the surface, washing the surface to remove contaminants such as grime, algae, moss, sand etc, applying preventative chemical treatments of moss-killer and/or algicide and periodically removing weed growth from perimeter kerb lines.

The removal of air born pollutants and surface trafficked debris should be combined with an annual maintenance regime to make sure your surface is looking its best!

Our Surfacing Cleaning service consists of cold water power washing using purpose made jetting equipment so not to damage the surface. The equipment must be able to supply an adequate volume of water with an operating pressure of 2,000 psi to remove some ingrained dirt or pollution which brings the surface back to looking like new.

Although many commercial washers allow for carefully metered quantities of detergent and fungal inhibitors to be added to the water if required our jetting equipment will maintain porosity and performance characteristics which prevent the surface from going hard and brittle. This simple treatment will improve longevity of your surfacing.

High traffic areas can require more cleaning than those areas which are seldom used. Areas near or under trees may need additional attention especially after an autumn/winter period due to fallen leaves and debris therefore Surfacing located in damp and shaded areas may attract moss or similar fungi.

We aim to remove any loose rubber granules, grit and other debris as accelerated wear may occur if this is not carried out.

The surface may become slippery in conditions when a film of moisture overlays the surface, e.g. when dew or frost is present. In frosty conditions vacuum dried salt or salt in solution can be applied. Do not use grit or rock salt as this will increase the wear on the surface and reduce its porosity.

Sport Surface Maintenance

A maintenance plan for your sports surface can really get the most efficiency out of the surface and increase the lifespan. Our polymeric type 3 and type 4 surfaces should be kept clean and free of debris. Nova Sport can undertake your sports surface maintenance and have specialist surface cleaning equipment to do this. Our artificial grass surfaces for sport should also be kept free of debris, but may also require a combination of cleaning and decompaction of the sand/rubber infill. This keeps both the aesthetics and performance of the surface to its optimum.

Acts of Parliament which cover children’s playgrounds include

Playground Managers may be held liable for negligence if they fail to take reasonable care to ensure their playgrounds are safe and avoid accidents they could reasonably have foreseen would happen. An example would be an accident which occurred from failing to maintain the protective surface which had been provided under equipment.

  • Occupier’s Liability Act (1957)
  • Health and Safety at Work etc. Act (1974)
  • Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations (1999)

    Regular maintenance and inspection of surface ought to be carried out with any damaged areas in need of repairing note instantly as failure to do so is a health and safety risk leaving yourself liable to any accident that may happen on the surface. The same principles apply to other outdoor safety surfaces like rubber mulch flooring in Law Hill ML8 5 to ensure that any nearby playground facilities and their surrounding areas are kept safe. This is because without correct maintenance, the wetpour system will not adhere to the BS 7188 performance specification which basically the general wear and slip resistance of flooring and the BSEN 1177 is tested to meet the Critical Fall height CFH under the HIC test method
