It is very important that wetpour safety playground maintenance is carried out all year round in order to ensure that they are looking and working to their full potential.

With more and more EPDM rubber crumb surface installations happening each year it's vital that existing resin bound rubber flooring is maintained to the correct standards and still meets the specifications set out in the NBS Q26 360 of rubberised surfacing. It's paramount that the surfacing is kept clean and is giving a consistent performance and this could be achieved by regularly sweeping debris from the surface and keeping the area free of unwanted objects.

What is Wet Pour Maintenance?

Wet pour maintenance is the process of servicing the rubberised flooring to ensure it stays in the best possible condition. A thorough maintenance scheme would involve:

  • Keeping the Flooring Clean – Ensuring leaves, flowers, pine needles, weeds and other detritus do not remain on the rubberised surfacing for any length of time. This can affect the porosity and permeable nature of the wet pour system meaning that it is no longer SUDs compliant. This is also the case with algae and moss which can sometimes allow moisture to be trapped within the rubber causing expansion and damage in cold weather conditions. Cleaning the floor regularly with a light power wash will often be enough to deter the growth of algae, weeds and moss which are easier to prevent than to get rid of once there.
  • Removing Stains – It's important when cleaning the wetpour rubber surfacing that boiling water is not used as this can sometimes damage the system. Hot water and household detergent are often enough to thoroughly clean the safety surface however if the event of chewing gum a freezing aerosol may be utilised. Stubborn stains such as oil may be treated with methylated spirits.
  • Cold / Freezing Weather – snow and ice alone will not damage the system however the use of heavy scrapers or stiff metal brushes will cause damage to the rubberised wearing course and should not be used at any point. If snow needs to be removed, it must be with a rubber scraper or light bristled brush so that the wetpour system is not damaged.
  • Weeds – No matter how well the wetpour safety surfacing is maintained there is always the chance of weeds due to a number of different reasons. If weeds to occur, a normally localised weed killer can be used on the rubberised flooring however it's vital that this is not oil based as it may damage the floor.

Cleaning Rubber Play Surfaces

Cleansing is conducted to make sure that any contaminants upon the floor surfaces will be dealt with to avoid more issues. Jet washing expert services make certain that debris in hard to get to areas will be handled correctly. The EPDM rubber surface is entirely permeable which makes certain that the surface can pass water right through in which will minimize just about any flood.

Routine maintenance makes sure that these kinds of attributes aren’t jeopardized, because contamination may stop this kind of tiny holes from allowing liquid across. If they're obstructed up, it’ll flood making this unusable. It could even be a potential danger as it can certainly result in the surface slippy leading to incidents.
