Tennis Court Maintenance
Tennis Court Maintenance is a beautiful addition to your home or business but requires some maintenance to help it last and remain safe for play. Tennis court surface cleaning, weed control and crack repair are some of the most common maintenance items for your hard courts.
Sweeping the court with a soft bristle brush is important to remove dirt and debris, especially in wet seasons. This can prevent mold and mildew from forming and prematurely wearing the colorcoat. Spills of oil, chemicals or other substances should be wiped up immediately. If a spill has stained the court a solution of 2 parts household bleach, 1 part water and a soft bristle brush can be used to scrub the affected area.

Weeds and grass should be treated regularly with an herbicide around the court as needed. Any weeds that appear inside the court should be treated with an herbicide and allowed to die before pulling as this can pull a portion of the court surface up as well. Tree limbs or shrubs that hang over the court should be trimmed back to avoid touching the tennis surface as well.
Drainage systems should be inspected on a regular basis to ensure that they are clear of blockage and that they are working properly. Keeping water from penetrating the surface of the tennis court will prevent the need for expensive repairs that result from water damage.
