  • Always read product labels carefully, making sure you have the right substance for certain materials, that cleaning products haven’t expired and that you use suitable measures
  • Do not mix cleaning products and chemicals unless you know it is safe to do so, it is possible to create toxic substances by mixing cleaning products, so avoid this
  • Wear safety clothing and protective equipment, especially when working with disinfectant

Steps associated with removing dirt and grime in playgrounds

When kids play, dirt, mud and grime is never too far away! This makes a regular cleaning process vital for anyone responsible for maintaining a playground. In most cases, the following simple steps will keep your playground clean:

  • Get a good clean with soap and warm water, wiping down equipment with a sponge or brush
  • Scrub the equipment, focusing on stuck-on grime and excessively dirty sections while disinfecting surfaces
  • Rinse the equipment down, and allow the equipment to air-dry before children access it, as surfaces will be slippery

If your equipment requires minimal maintenance, this will be more than enough to leave everything in great condition. However, you’ll often find that a more intensive approach is required for effective playground cleaning, and this might be the time to call on specialist cleaning companies.

Removing moss , mould and mildew from playground equipment

Removing moss, mould and mildew from playground equipment

As mould, moss and mildew are common across outdoor surfaces, it is not uncommon to find it growing on playsets, climbing frames, swings and all other outdoor play equipment.

After initially wiping the equipment with soap and water, it is important to treat the equipment to remove mould or algae.

A mixture of bleach and water is effective at removing mould and mildew, but be sure to wear gloves and follow recommended practices for using chemicals. Also, make sure it is thoroughly rinsed and dried after a suitable amount of time.

Vinegar is effective at removing moss and mould, and is a more environmentally friendly option. A quick and easy way to use white vinegar on outdoor equipment is to place it into a spray gun bottle, and cover any affected areas. Allow the vinegar to settle for at least an hour, and then rinse clear.

Commercially available mould removal spray is a great way to clean playground equipment. Products aimed at bathroom and shower cleaning are suitable, and please follow instructions on the bottle.

As you can see, there is no reason why you cannot clean playground equipment yourself, but there are many reasons why people choose to hire a specialist cleaner.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you jet wash a soft play/playground area?

No it is not advisable to jet wash a soft play area, playground or wet pour surfaces as it is likely to cause damage. Soft washing systems are a much safer and more common way to clean playgrounds.

How often should playground equipment be cleaned?

General cleaning for sanitization should be done every 3 months but a full professional clean by us would be done every 6-12 months.

How much bacteria is on a playground?

Statistics by Home Advisor stated that playground equipment on average carries around 3,500,000 colony forming units (CFU) of bacteria per square inch. This is huge compared to the average kitchen worktop which is around 85 CFU.

How long does wet pour take to dry?

72 hours is the time we recommend not using a wet pour surface after it has been cleaned but it can dry after 24 hours depending on weather.
