Sportsfield Offers Solutions for Vinyl Cleaning & Conditioning

Springtime is upon us, and coaches, athletic directors, and groundskeepers are busy preparing athletes and their playing fields for winning seasons. Preparing isn’t only about dragging the infields, cleaning the catch basins, and running shuttles. Experts at Sportsfield Specialties say it is also about cleaning and conditioning the vinyl protective padding on the field.

Whether your athletic field is outfitted with outfield wall pads, backstop pads, or rail and fence padding—it’s time for a spring cleaning. By taking these simple steps in the care of your vinyl padding each season, you’re ensuring that your venue will look good for years to come.

  1. Apply Mold & Stain Remover (Product #599-MISC-0178). Mix one scoop of remover per one quart of water. Wet the surface of the padding with water and let it stand for 15 minutes. Apply the solution and agitate the surface with a non-abrasive cloth. Rinse with clean water and repeat the process as necessary. IOSSO Mold & Mildew Stain Remover is biodegradable and doesn’t contain chlorine or harmful vapors. A single 12oz container makes up to three gallons of solution!
  2. Clean & Condition (Product #599-MISC-0179). After removing stains and mold, let the padding surface dry. Then spray on the Clean & Condition solution. Gently wipe the surface with a clean, dry cloth. Use a new clean, dry cloth to buff the padding. This product restores the appearance and makes blemishes less visible. Additionally, it leaves a subtle sheen and protects against drying and cracking.
  3. Dole Out High fives. All done and now your vinyl pads are ready for the season!
