Synthetic turf is made up of artificial materials which require regular maintenance like additional infill, irrigation due to unacceptable high temperatures on sunny days, chemical disinfectants etc.
Maintenance of synthetic turfs are crucial to players and sportsman to ensure their overall health and wellbeing. Hence drainage to synthetic turf needs to be repaired and maintained, temporary lines and damages need to be tended to at regular interval.
While regular maintenance increases the life of synthetic turf, heavy usage over the 9 year period can make the field unsafe.
Uneven spots, less to no turf fibre and detached places can harm the athletes and cause serious injuries.
However, if replaced every eight to ten years or upon extreme damage, synthetic turf can not only benefit players to a great extent, they are much low maintenance and much less costly than natural grass.
Natural Grass are high maintenance and they have high replacement cost as well. Synthetic turfs on the other hand are three times less costly in maintenance than normal grass which is a boon for people maintaining and using them.
So look at your synthetic sports field once again. Does it have an odour, does it look damaged? Does it need urgent tending? Is it more than ten years since it was installed?
If the answer to any of the above questions is yes, your synthetic sports field needs to be changed to ensure a healthy life to sportsmen and to reduce heavy maintenance costs.
It's time to remove your old synthetic turf
