Get Your Artificial Turf Field Ready for Spring
Winter is finally coming to an end and that means spring sports are gearing up!
Springs sports teams are coming out of the weight room and out onto the field. Is your artificial turf field ready?
Every artificial turf field needs a proper spring cleaning to stay looking and performing its best. Dealing with seasonal changes can be one of the biggest challenges that face field managers and owners—especially after enduring a polar vortex—but Turfix makes it easy!
Turfix artificial turf maintenance programs have been developed to make sure your artificial turf field is always ready for another season of play. Here’s your guide to getting your artificial turf field spruced up for spring:
Step 1: Snow Removal
It’s a good idea to keep pace with snowfall and regularly plow the field so the snow doesn’t pile up. Once snow is removed, there might be a small crust of ice remaining on the field’s surface. Do not use salt to melt the ice! While artificial turf can withstand the use of salt, the resulting residue can inhibit drainage when the spring thaw finally comes. Turfix has the right equipment to break up ice without disturbing or displacing infill.
Step 2: Walk the Field
A full-field spring walk-through will indicate if your artificial turf field needs brushing, raking, aerating, or sweeping of leaves, paper, trash, and other debris. Remove large debris and flag any issues that may have arisen due to the winter months. While on a walk-through, also keep your eyes open for any minor repairs that may be needed, especially in high traffic areas, such as the soccer penalty spot or pitcher’s mound.
Step 3: Call Turfix
