sports surface maintenance

The amount of sports pitch maintenance required depends on a number of factors. These can include:

  • The type of sport played (including high-intensity sports such as football, rugby, hockey and tennis)
  • The location (whether it’s in the city or country, an open area or near trees)
  • The frequency of use (how many hours use the area gets per week)
  • The surface (whether it’s artificial, hybrid or natural turf)

There are lots of factors to consider when putting together a maintenance schedule. Every pitch is different, and we pride ourselves on our custom approach, putting together a tailored package for each client.

The SISPlus team consists of specialists in both natural and artificial pitch maintenance. We’ve got the expertise you need, whatever the surface you play on. If you have any questions about your pitch requirements or how we can help, get in touch.

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).

Specialist Maintenance

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.
  • Vert-Top
    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.
  • Protectus
    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.

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.
