As with anything that is used frequently, a little bit of care and attention can go a long way. Wetpour Maintenance is no exception to this, and while it requires a lot less work than many other safety surfaces it must be maintained in order to ensure it performs consistently and safely for children to use.
With regular brushing and a light jet wash, wetpour can be kept free of debris. This prevents contamination from entering the small gaps within the surface, which can cause problems such as moss, algae and weed growth. If left unattended these can grow and contaminate the entire surface, making it unsafe for children to use.

If any damage is found during inspections it is important that the surface is repaired straight away. This not only helps to make sure that the surface is safe, but also makes sure that it doesn’t deteriorate further over time.
We can supply a range of rubber repair kits that can be used to fix minor damage, and we also have a liquid de-icer that can be applied to the surface to prevent it from becoming too slippery in cold weather.
It is also recommended that the surfacing is checked for any large rips or tears on a regular basis. This is to ensure that they are fixed quickly before they deteriorate and cause further damage to the surrounding surface or equipment. Wetpour can be very resilient, but if the material is subject to a great deal of force or impact it may need more frequent repairs and replacements.
