)-- Tips for Outdoor Play equipment cleaning
Summer is nearly upon us and it gives us the ideal opportunity to carry out those all important safety checks on outdoor play equipment. While this may be obvious if you are rebuilding swings and trampolines from over winter storage you must always follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
So that you are able to clearly identify any possible problems or areas of weakness, it is always advisable to clean off any excess dirt before carrying out a thorough examination of the equipment. You will clearly be able to see what needs to be rectified. For example, removing the padding and bouncing mat on trampolines before cleaning will enable you to give the framework and springs a thorough inspection.
Any light surface rust can be removed with a product such as WD40, however, if rust or other deterioration is widespread do not take a chance, you should replace the faulty part or in case of widespread problems the entire item immediately.
