The best way to take care of a rubber play surface is by regularly cleaning it to get rid of dirt and debris. This can be done using a stiff brush to sweep away leaves and litter. You could also use a pressure washer with warm water and soap to thoroughly clean the surfacing. It's important to do this as you'll want to prevent any contaminations from getting stuck within the pores of the flooring. If this happens it can make a play area flood as water isn't able to soak through into the ground below. You can then get moss and algae growing on the surface and the rubber could become slippery and start to break up, making it unsafe.

If you keep the flooring clean through proactive playground maintenance you can help to prevent these issues. The children's safety should always be a top priority when it comes to play area facilities, and looking after the surface will keep it safe. The best way to prevent these problems is by keeping the floor clean and making sure no contaminants get stuck within the pores. Over time if the surfacing becomes badly broken and unsafe, it might require costly repairs or even a resurface so this is something to bear in mind.
The easiest way to clear off any kind of deep placed debris is by using a power washer assistance. The surfacing was created to be completely porous, and therefore fluids can move through the holes within the flooring to avoid any kind of water-logging. Servicing assists in maintaining these kinds of qualities under control, as dirt and also contaminants block the pores in the floor stopping water from having the ability to slide through. This might cause floods thus rendering the facility unable to be used due to the facility getting slippery which could result in accidents.
If your surface is beyond servicing, then you'll need it to be repaired.
