- Apr 13, 2018-

Artificial grass sports fields such as football fields, basketball courts, badminton courts, golf artificial greens, and croquet courts, etc., in the cold winter, will inevitably run into snow and ice, and what are some good ways to remove ice and snow during winter artificial turf maintenance? Let's let Xiao Bian give you a detailed introduction!

In fact, a large part of artificial turf sports venues are used outdoors. Therefore, after entering the cold winter, artificial turf will freeze in the morning and evening due to the influence of low temperature. Although the impact of freezing on artificial turf is not great, the site cannot be used after icing. Under normal circumstances, artificial turf is not affected by freezing because ice will automatically evaporate and evaporate. However, in order to make the football field ready for use, it is still necessary to remove the frozen ice from the artificial turf.

In order to avoid injuring artificial turf when clearing frozen ice, the most common method at present is to use a heavy roller to crush the ice on the artificial turf. After crushing, they can be cleared directly from the site. In the case of the sun and the ice is not too thick, it will melt quickly, with little effect.

If the ice is thicker, it needs chemicals to help it melt. However, regardless of the use of any chemicals on the artificial turf, some residue will be left, so wash the site as the weather allows. The more common method is to sprinkle urea to help the ice melt, sprinkle with urea, frozen ice melting after half an hour. The melted ice cubes should be cleaned with a washing machine, rubber cleaner, sweeper or other suitable equipment. In addition, heavy equipment should not be parked on the ground for long periods of time because it will damage the artificial turf.
