The Importance of Court Cleaning -
Keep Safe and Keep Better Looking

Tennis court cleaning in progress with moss removalRegardless of whether a tennis court surface is porous macadam, impervious or porous acrylic, regular cleaning and maintenance is essential to maintain the looks and performance characteristics of tennis courts.

Our photographs show how professional cleaning can restore the colour and surface of a neglected tennis court.

But your court doesn't have to look as poor as our examples to have variable friction or slippery patches.

Visit the Tennis Court Services WebsiteSpecialists in Tennis Court Cleaning and Painting.

The regular cleaning of tennis court surfaces will lead to:

  • Improved drainage
  • Slip reduction
  • Aesthetic improvement
  • Extended life of the surface

An important aid to the cleaning is the chemical treatment of the moss and algae which makes the cleaning process more effective and extends the period of time before cleaning is necessary.

Cleaning is required for all tennis courts over a year old prior to painting.

Maintenance schedules can be prepared showing exact costs for a number of years.
