Wetpour Maintenance

Wetpour Maintenance is a process of looking after the EPDM rubber wet pour safety surface and making sure it doesn’t get dirty or become unsafe. This can be done in a few different ways. One of the most important is to regularly brush the area, this removes any mud, debris or natural matter that can block up the pores in the surface. This keeps it clean, safe and allows water to drain through.

Another way of keeping the wetpour surface in a good condition is to use a light power wash on a regular basis. This can be done by a professional cleaning contractor who is experienced in cleaning wet pour rubber and knows how to use the machine correctly. This will not mark the rubber and keep it cleaner for longer. It’s also a great time to remove any existing weeds or mosses.
