ATHLETICS SURFACES MAINTENANCE
These sorts of surfaces cannot be mopped due to their rough texture of the track so it will be cleaned by high-pressure water and neutral soap with a water jet and diffuser. It is to be considered that there are some water compressors that can deliver a very high pressure and can detach the marking lines. Due to this fact, it is not recommended to put the diffuser too close to the lines on the athletics surface.
Draining waterways in athletics outdoors surfaces tend to fill with dirt and sand from the jumping pit. This may make them lose efficiency and even to grow weeds; to avoid it, they should be cleaned with pressured water and any sediment present near the sanitizing network must be removed.
PLANNING FOR PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE IN ATHLETICS
Superficial dirt cleaning quarterly
Waterways cleaning annually, prior to rain season
JUMP SAND PIT
In this case, the preventive maintenance procedures narrow down to:
Watering: Aiming at a better plasticity of the sand, which is very important for athletes’ security and enhances cohesion of the sand due to water superficial tension that makes the marks in the sand don’t crumble. This allows the jury and the athletes themselves to easily recognize the exact point of landing.
Compaction: Sand pits tend to get compacted with usage losing their qualities of cushioning impacts ; in order to avoid this, it is necessary to carry out de-compaction. This procedure in this sort of facility has to be thoroughly done as a superficial procedure would not help maintain the proprieties that are necessary in this kind of surfaces. This procedure can be carried out by manual means such as hoe (although it requires a big effort to go to the recommend depth of 30 – 40 cm) or by mechanical means like rotovator getting as deep as possible.
