There is only one sure-fire way to keep your surfacing in top condition: regular care. When it comes to ensuring the longevity and soundness of your wet pour rubber surfacing, there are a number of regular maintenance and good care practices we at All Surface Concepts can recommend. If it is well looked after, you can ensure that your surfaces keep on performing for many years to come! Since wet pour rubber is traditionally an outdoor surfacing solution, you already know that you will be dealing with the elements. Here are our recommendations.
How To Care For And Maintain Your Wet Pour Rubber Surface
First things first, keep the surface clear of unwanted or excess debris. Airborne or happenstance debris may seem innocuous enough, but it poses an unseen risk. If left to accumulate, debris can accelerate the deterioration of your surfaces and, even worse, cause health hazards if left to decay. Regular brushing with a stiff bristle broom or the use of a leaf blower can help keep the surfaces cleared and ensure that this does not become an impossible task.
In terms of regular cleaning, we recommend sweeping or vacuuming to remove dust, dirt and grime. Low-pressure water cleaning can be done intermittently to ensure good health and safety as well as helping to clear unwanted dirt. Long term stagnant water can cause innumerable problems so try to avoid this by installing good drainage infrastructure prior to installing wet pour rubber.
We also recommend high-pressure water cleaning be done every three to five years but please note that this should be handled professionally and that harsh chemicals, detergents, solvents, mechanical brushing machines and sharp implements are to be avoided at all costs.
Of course, good user guidelines should be in place to ensure that the surface is not broken down prematurely. High heels, sharp or pointed objects and narrow-edged or tipped objects can all compromise the integrity of your surface. Immediate repair and damage control should be employed if this ever occurs.
