Sports Pitch maintenance to suit your needs
There are two types of pitch maintenance that you will need to complete to get the most from your pitch:
Routine turf maintenance
This can be carried out in-house if you have a grounds team. As part of your routine artificial pitch maintenance, it’s important to clear the pitch of any debris and rubbish, sweeping regularly so that the pitch fibres are upright and checking the infill is regulated (visit our infill page to learn more).
This includes decompaction and more vigorous cleaning, such as SIS Cleanse (our anti-viral, anti-bacterial deep cleaning service). Specialist maintenance on sports surfaces should always be performed by experts.
Your dedicated maintenance company
Our in-house pitch maintenance team, SISPlus, ensures that all surfaces are maintained to the highest standards, supported by our high levels of customer service. We offer a variety of sports surface maintenance packages, with specialist equipment and experienced operatives.
As the UK’s largest one-stop shop for synthetic pitches, we have invested heavily in our range of sports surface maintenance equipment. This means we can offer decompaction and cleaning operations using the very best equipment available:
- Extreme Clean
This machine uses stiff rotating circular brushes to decompact the infill. This is ideal for pitches where the infill has compacted and the pitch has become hard.
This cleaning machine combines rotating brushes, oscillating sieves and a vacuum to filter infill material. The larger contaminants are collected in the bins at the rear of the machine and any finer particles are collected in the vacuum bag.
- Speed Brush
The Speed Brush has 2 rotating brushes which are ideal for redistributing infill and maintaining an upright pile.
- Horger SKU 1500 Cleaning Unit
This machine works by removing debris and dust from carpet fibres, alongside cleaning carpet infill materials which are then re-integrated into the pile. Horger can clean up to 65mm pile depth.
Produced in the UK, Protectus is our specially formulated deep-cleaning treatment designed to disinfect pitches, protecting against viruses and bacteria to keep sports facilities safe (see our SIS Cleanse for more information).
Deep clean & infill distribution
As an addition to our comprehensive SISPlus maintenance programme, we offer a deep cleaning service, which should be carried out once or twice per year. This is particularly important on heavily used areas, to ensure a long pitch lifespan and optimum performance.
Our recent addition to our impressive fleet of maintenance machinery, the Horger SKU 1500 Cleaning Unit, has benefitted our customers by providing them with better playability and a more consistent surface.
With the COVID-19 pandemic posing health and safety challenges for sports facilities, we are now offering an anti-viral and anti-bacterial deep cleaning service, SIS Cleanse.
Disinfecting pitches, playing surfaces and grounds must now be the priority so that sports can kick off safely. Find out more about how we can help.

pitch maintenance in ALL weather
Whatever the weather, maintenance is important to get the most from your surface all year round. Snowfall and prolonged dry or wet periods can all impact the quality of your playing fields without regular maintenance. If you’re unsure what to do, contact us for advice.
MAINTENANCE FOR HYBRID OR NATURAL TURF PITCHES
We also maintain hybrid and natural turf surfaces. Due to each site’s specific needs, each sports surface will require a bespoke regime. Please contact us for more information and to increase the life of your sports pitch.
