Rejuvenation improves drainage, de-compacts heavy use areas and returns the surface back to its original condition (allowing for wear). Successful Rejuvenation and a suitable maintenance program, will add a further 5+ years to the life of a surface which would otherwise have had to be replaced.

AstroCare also specialises in the re-spaying of all hard courts with high quality, water based acrylic paints and comes in a variety of colours including spring green, forest green, light holly, summer red, terracotta and black

Depending on the condition of the court, a binder coat may need to be applied first but this will be discussed first.

Moss & Algae Treatments

Moss and algae on your sports surface is due to warm, damp conditions. Artificial Turf, Synthetic Grass or AstroTurf surfaces are often surrounded by trees and / or bushes which provide shade and the perfect environment for growth. This looks unsightly but more importantly will become slippery and dangerous.

Factors encouraging growth in:  

– Shaded areas,  

– Poor drainage, 

– Poor air quality,  

– Leaves left on the ground  

– Especially over winter

Brushing & Drag Brushing

Cleaning and brushing remove debris from the surface of the pitch and help to remove vegetation build up. With time, rubber and sand infill in your artificial turf, synthetic grass or AstroTurf surface infill and fibres become compacted around the key play areas, and this reduces comfort, drainage and safety. 

With regular power and drag brushing by an expert, the surface can be levelled to give a true and consistent playing surface. This helps to reduce the possibility of flooding and slippage and improves the all-around look and feel of the surface. At Astro Care, we can also asses if the correct depth of sand or rubber is in place or if it needs altering. By using a power brush, the tips of the artificial fibres will also be lifted reducing the likelihood of compaction, while the drag brush will agitate and level the fibres and infill.

Line & Carpet Repairs

With time, your Artificial Turf, Synthetic Grass or AstroTurf surfaces will become worn in specific areas or lines may come loose from backing tape.

We can cut out the affected area and replace with an identical carpet. Due to wear there may be some variance in pile length so this would be trimmed to give the best possible match.

For lines that have come loose and are a safety hazard, we are able to either fully replace the line or if possible replace the backing tape and glue it into place.
