Squash court maintenance is a necessity to extend the lifespan of your flooring. Correct maintenance can increase the amount of time before refurbishment or new installation is needed. But when should you carry out maintenance and how should it be completed?
Why is squash court maintenance important?
Squash court maintenance is essential to both the safety and play of the court. You should ensure the maintenance of slip resistance, line markings, reflective surfaces and high-quality glass backs. Keeping your squash court in top condition allows you to adhere to safety standards and sporting regulations. Over time, constant use can wear down the surface of the squash court. This can cause damage to the surface of the flooring, causing line-markings and slip resistance to fade.
It is vital to keep your squash court safe for its users, and slip resistance is an extremely important factor within squash. The game involves rapid foot movement, meaning the game and safety of the players will be affected by a slippery floor. Gameplay will also be affected by a lack of/worn down line-markings. Professional sporting events require clear, up to date line markings as part of regulations. This is why it is important for you to keep these up-to-date. Not only does maintenance avoid safety hazards, but it also prevents severe damage that could be expensive to fix.
When should you carry out squash court maintenance?
Regular squash court maintenance is vital to keep the court in top condition. We recommend cleaning the squash court daily after use. This will help to remove any dirt or debris that could cause damage to the surface of the flooring. Depending on how often your court is used, your cleaning routine may vary.
You may need to carry out essential squash court maintenance such as damage repair or refurbishment from time to time. This maintenance should be carried out as soon as problems arise. This will avoid the damage becoming worse and more costly for you to repair. This could include cracks in the surface, line markings fading, or decreased friction levels (noticing people slipping).
