PlaySmart are often asked by clients how to clean safety surfacing. EPDM wet pour rubber surfacing should always be a low maintenance product after a new install, however, there are things you can do to keep it looking good and extend the lifespan of your playground flooring.
As with any surface, we advise clients to inspect them regularly to check for any foreign objects and damage – when addressed quickly, these problems can be put right without growing or becoming more severe.
The key thing to remember is that wet pour is water permeable, so when installed on a good free-draining base, it should allow water to drain away from the surface. We would recommend sweeping regularly to remove debris, grime and moss and find that occasional low-pressure washing can wash dirt through to the base and away from the surface.
Localised issues such as oil and chewing gum should be addressed without delay being very careful to avoid further damage.
