Does our synthetic field need cleaning? 2017-04-16T17:27:24+00:00

Yes. Fields must be regularly cleaned. Spills and other fluids must be cleaned with a safe organic cleaner immediately. Larger debris such as leaves must be removed and not be allowed to enter into the infill material.

We have static on our field and the rubber pellets stick to the fibers on top. Can this be fixed? 2017-04-16T17:26:23+00:00

Yes. A liquid laundry grade fabric softener can be diluted with water and applied to a synthetic field surface to decrease static problems.

NEED MORE INFO?
Do we ever need to replace or add crumb rubber? 2017-04-16T17:25:27+00:00

Yes. Rubber granules are removed with heavy play and will migrate off the field. Proper rubber infill levels must be tested and maintained for the entire useful life of the field. Fields with low levels of rubber infill will experience faster fiber wear and shorter lifespan.

NEED MORE INFO?
The sliding areas around each base are low and missing rubber granules. Can this be repaired? 2017-04-16T17:18:45+00:00

Yes. High traffic areas will often be below grade and missing a significant amount of rubber granules. The rubber can be replaced, but must be properly swept in and leveled to match surrounding areas. This is an ongoing maintenance need.

How long will a batter’s box or pitcher’s area last and can it be easily replaced? 2017-04-16T17:17:50+00:00

The useful life of synthetic turf especially in high traffic areas such as batter’s boxes, pitcher’s mounds and soccer goals’ mouths is determined by usage and maintenance. It is common for these areas to wear at a rate twice as fast as the surrounding portions of the field. Worn areas can be replaced easily to extend the life of the entire field surface

NEED MORE INFO?
Can artificial fields compact and become too hard to safely play on? 2017-04-14T23:39:04+00:00

Yes. Heavy wear, aging fibers and lack of maintenance will lead to a surface that is hard and can lead to injuries. Fields must be tested, brushed and de-compacted regularly.
