BEST Sports Turf Company, Getting Down with Upkeep!
Installing artificial turf is an investment—one that you want to protect. Always Green warranty covers eight years, but regular maintenance could extend the life of your field beyond the warranty period. Well-maintained turf not only lasts longer, it also helps ensure that the high standards set by sports governing bodies are consistently met. Always Green maintenance is unique, due to the relationship with the producers of the turf fibers. “Always Green gets direction from our fiber manufacturer to use the processes that extend the life of the fiber to its fullest capacity,” Zabel says.
Every month, or after 400 hours of play, it is recommended to perform general maintenance such as checking high-traffic spots in front of the goal, corner kick and kickoff areas, and midfield; checking for buried fibers that may be trapped under the rubber; and making sure the hash marks haven’t been pulled up. At this point, Always Green also recommends pulling a groomer—a stiff, bristled brush—over the field to straighten the fibers and push infill into areas where it may be low. However, more extensive maintenance like adding infill and deeper cleaning can happen less frequently over the life of your field. For all maintenance, you can count on the expertise of Always Green maintenance crews, or have Always Green train their staff to ensure the field’s longevity. That’s why Always Green is the BEST Sports Turf Company!
