Helpful Tips About Tennis Court Cleaning
Regular maintenance and tennis court cleaning is highly recommended. High pressure cleaning is the fastest and safest way to clean the tennis court. To avoid algae and other fungal contaminants growing on the court we recommend you purchase a commercial ‘leaf blower’ to remove any debris from the tennis court.
You should attempt to remove debris at least once or twice a week. If you begin to notice fungal contaminants on the surface you can use the following cleaning solution to remove them:
– In a watering can, mix 2 parts household bleach to 1 part water.
– Pour the solution on to the surface and scrub the solution into the surface.
– After several minutes wash down the surface with plenty of cold water.
– If the stain persists, try adding a detergent to the solution and repeat.
