4G Pitch Maintenance Problems & Solutions

Use of COSHH approved chemicals are applied direct to the filtration system or to the surface itself.

Rejuvenation and Service Levels



Signs of poor drainage which may require rejuvenation:

  • Appearance of numerous and persistent puddles after light rainfall
  • Slimy residue on the playing surface after surface waters have subsided
  • Infill waste spreading to the outside of the playing surface
  • Surface becoming dangerously slippery, especially in wet conditions

Our rejuvenation process uses specialist machinery to release compacted infill, remove contaminated infill and to then dress and level new infill to appropriate pile height levels.

Service Levels

Service Levels

Sports Maintenance Services offer a complete de-compaction service, which ensures the synthetic carpet is being deep cleaned and aerated, so preserving drainage and safe play characteristics.Effective maintenance based on decompaction ensures rejuvenation and revitalisation expenditures are avoided.

We offer two levels of service linked to regular professional maintenance of synthetic surfaces. Frequency of required service depends upon intensity of use and age of surface. Client budgets can be flexed across both levels of service.
