Tennis Court & Hardcourt Maintenance
Proper Tennis Court Maintenance
- Keep court free of foreign matter, clean your court frequently – to remove sand, leaves, dirt, debris, moss, mold and mildew. To remove stubborn mold/mildew, an experienced contractor should utilize a high pressure power washer, without damaging the color surface.
- Use the right equipment, soft nylon or hair-type broom for sweeping and scrubbing.
- Beware of water, bird baths or standing water, repair as required.
- Clean and fill cracks, repair as required.
- Plan for resurfacing every 5-8 years.
Things to avoid
- Do not drag heavy objects across surface.
- Do not drive maintenance equipment onto court with protecting the surface.
- Marking soles on athletic footwear.
- Place pads under equipment with sharp edges.
- No in-line hockey play (on tennis and basketball courts), rollerblades, bicycles, or skateboards, these will cause damage to the acrylic surface.
WE CAN REPAIR YOUR TENNIS OR BASKETBALL COURT
The surface may have areas that are showing signs of algae, mold, and mildew. This most often occurs in damp, low traffic shaded areas were trees are overhanging on the court. Algae growth can also occur in low areas where there is standing water for long periods of time. This algae, mold and/or mildew can be cleaned using a high pressure power washer. All debris and stains, including leaves, grass, tree sap, fruit, and bird droppings should be removed as soon as possible, to prevent discoloration, staining, and possibly peeling of the acrylic color surface.
