Synthetic Turf doesn't need maintenance
A common misconception is that synthetic turf
requires little maintenance. However, regular attention is vital to
ensure optimum playing performance and durability.
The infill material used in synthetic turf must be kept level
for a consistent playing field. In addition, synthetic fibres have
to remain free of litter, leaves, dirt, bacteria, moss, algae and
weeds. Clean surfaces allow water to flow through them, avoiding
water ponding for sustained periods.
We recommend twice yearly sweeping/sieving operations and
moss/algae control applications.
All maintenance operations are equal
A common misconception is that all brushes are equal. They
aren't. Most brushes just push debris around the surface, shifting
it from one place to another.
The Redexim unit we invested in has an ingeniousrotary brush
mechanism which removes both surface litter and the top infill
layer. It then filters out debris using a vibrating, sieving
mechanism. The cleaned infill is then redistributed evenly over the
surface. A rear brush ensures a smooth finish.
In summary, our unit
- sieves out debris, separating the debris (for
removal) from the sand (for redistribution).
What Differentiates CLEAN SWEEP
Organic Moss and Algae Control
We have sourced a proven, organic moss and algae
control product from overseas. This not only destroys the moss and
algae, it's also organic.
Sprays used on tennis courts usually end up being washed off into
water ways or surrounding gardens.
With our organic moss and algae control, there is no need to
worry if some of it finds its way into these areas.
This product is safe to use on your synthetic turf and won't
damage/break down the synthetic fibres.
A lot of chemicals on the market which control moss and algae
also damage the synthetic fibres. Some chemicals can therefore
reduce the life span of your synthetic surface.
Sweeping and Sieving
Just brushing or scraping merely moves debris around the
surface. It's important to actually remove debris from synthetic
Our walk behind Redexim unit undertakes several key
processes in one pass:
- sweeps up ingrained debris including moss, algae,
weeds and rubbish
- sieves out the debris for complete removal
- allows clean sand to filter back through the sieves
into the surface
- stands the synthetic fibres upright, just like it
was when new
- improves surface infiltration
