Backyard Trampoline – Trampolines provide great exercise for every family member, but to keep your trampoline working as new you must clean and maintain. The cleaning process is not difficult if some common sense cleaning techniques are followed.
Before cleaning the trampoline mat itself, it is important to consider the springs. Keeping them free of leaves, dirt or other debris is essential. If the leaves and other items are allowed to accumulate around the springs, they could rust, weaken them and put additional strain on the other springs or trampoline frame. For this reason, rusty springs must be replaced.
After any accumulated waste has been removed from the springs, start cleaning the carpet. Sweep the carpet to clean the impurities and then soak with a garden hose. The use of a pressure washer can reduce the time needed to clean the trampoline carpet. If pressurized water is used, it is a good idea to clean the frame and springs, as well as the trampoline carpet. While a garden hose can be used to clean the springs and frame, a high-pressure hose nozzle produces the best results. If there is a significant accumulation of dirt and debris either on the carpet or the frame (for example after a long winter), it may be necessary to use a pressure washer instead of a hose, even if you need to rent one.
