High-Pressure Cleaning using skilled operatives that adapt and work to every court’s quirks. Every court is different so must be worked on with care. We clean asphalt, grey/green grit and artificial grass courts.
It’s a daunting task pressure washing 562m2, but with our petrol pressure washer and techniques, we soon get the job done efficiently. By varying the required pressure we also try to minimise the surface damage that high-pressure cleaning may cause to old courts or those in bad condition.
With Grey/green grit courts, the loose grit is first removed to clean the underlying surface. Chemical treatment is then applied to the surface before new sterile grit is put down and spread evenly across the court.
Cleaning of artificial grass courts removes moss and algae from the surface and a degree of the contamination build-up from the infill. The extent of contamination will determine the course of action and whether new infill is required. Cleaning also de-compacts the surface ensuring that it remains free draining.
The length of time taken to clean a court depends on the:

If the court surface is thin or in bad condition then removing encroached moss with a high pressure clean will bring up some of the surface. We may, therefore, recommend a chemical treatment to kill off the moss. Then 6 weeks later when the moss is dead and easier to remove, we can start the clean. This minimises damage to the surface as we are able to remove all the moss with a lower pressure clean.
It is essential that the court surface is as clean as possible so that the binders get into the voids in the substrate, binds the aggregate and covers it with a film for the paint to adhere to. If applied to a dirty surface then the binder and paint will just peel off. We would not be able to guarantee any work carried out on a surface not prepared by ourselves. You are welcome to minimise our amount of cleaning time by carrying out an initial clean first.
We would not recommend using the old grit as it will still contain moss spores and algae, which will promote faster regrowth.
