How to maintain the artificial turf during the rainy season?


First, cooling.


During the hot summer months, the exterior temperature of artificial turf is much warmer than natural grass, and it does not absorb heat as well as natural grass. To reach the cooling effect, in fact, artificial turf is PE polyethylene raw material, but high temperature exposure after the artificial turf will increase the thermal effect, in the Playing in such high temperatures can easily become physically uncomfortable for players and reduce the quality and enjoyment of the game. Therefore, lowering the exterior temperature of the artificial turf is an important step in summer maintenance, and nowadays it is common to lower the temperature by spraying water on the field. This is by far the most effective method. Even before professional league matches, water is sprayed on the field to reduce the exterior temperature. But the spraying must be even and not too much, spraying until the field can be moist.


Second, clean up


Football pitches inevitably produce all kinds of waste, and both artificial and natural turf pitches need to be cleaned. Floating dust, then natural rainwater can clean it. However, there is also a lot of plastic waste, paper dust, fruit peels and other garbage that needs to be removed and cleaned up. Therefore, the maintenance of the soccer field must include regular cleaning.


Third, Drainage


Summer is also the rainy season, which is generally concentrated between April and October, especially in southern China, where the rainy season is particularly fierce, with heavy rainstorms Contrast more, which has a great impact on the drainage system of the artificial turf, generally moderate to light rain on the artificial turf field is not very The obvious impact, exactly when the artificial turf was built with a drainage system, plus there are drainage holes in the back of the lawn, the average moderate to light rain! It will not affect the formation of artificial turf, half an hour can drain the water in the field at all. However, in summer, there are often heavy rainstorms, so excessive rainfall, the small holes in the lawn can not drain so quickly, and this will form When lawns are swallowed by flood waters, rubber granules and quartz sand are washed away, causing severe damage to the turf. So the summer artificial turf maintenance drainage is not less.


Fourth, dehumidification


We all know that the summer air humidity control, especially in the southern regions, the relative humidity is often very high, artificial turf raw materials! It is PE, commonly known as plastic, and the fibers can easily grow and reproduce algae in a relatively humid environment, and if algae grows, it can cause the growth of algae. It makes the field very slippery, which makes it easy for athletes to fall down and form injuries during sports. So how to dehumidify has become a big problem for many builders. Dehumidification is also an important matter of summer artificial turf maintenance!
