How so we best maintain Tru-flex Courts?

Tru-flex courts are installed by Tru-flex professionals so from day 1 you're assured of optimum performance.  Attention to a few basic court rate guidelines will ensure years of trouble free life.

•Initial Cure

Dependant on conditions during application and curing, slight foaming may occur the fist time the courts are wetted after application.  When fully cured (7 days in good drying conditions) and before first playing, rinsing with fresh clean water and light brooming removes any residual detergents which may other wise reduce court grip

•Scuff Marks

Will be more noticeable on new courts and will diminsh as the court surface normalises.  The types of shoes warn could mark the surface - black soled shoes should be discouraged

•Ponding

Minor ponding after rain is best removed with an absorbent "Roller Dryer" (available from speciality equipment suppliers) rather than fixed blade squeegees which over time may alter the surface.  Major ponding is detrimental and may indicate sub-surface movement which should be recrified.  Refer to your Tru-flex professional for advice

•Normal Cleaning

Routinely remove loose debris including leaves and organic matter which can degrade leaving staining.  Washing with fresh water/mild detergent with light brooming at regular intervals is recommended.  Always rinse well with fresh water after washing to remove all detergent traces which otherwise may reduce court grip
