  • We clean and scrub and seal sports hall floors
  • We clean and scrub and seal gymnasium floors
  • We clean and scrub and seal general purpose floors

We clean sports hall floors and gymnasium floors to remove marks and grease and restore grip. We also lightly sand the surface and apply one or two coats of seal to maintain your sports floor and restore the surface to as new condition with good grip. If a sports hall or gymnasium floor is properly maintained by regular cleaning and re-sealing it can be kept in as new condition. Sports floors need regular cleaning to remove dirt which wears the surface. Sports floors and gymnasium floors need to be maintained and re-sealed periodically to restore grip and keep them looking in good condition.

Regular maintenance of sports hall and gymnasium floors can save money – normally court markings will be applied before a final coat of seal and where the sports floor has worn there is the risk that the court markings will start to wear too. It is more cost effective to have the required sports floor maintenance on a regular basis and seal the floor before the court markings have worn to save having to have a costly full sand and seal and new line markings.

The benefits of choosing TPS

  • Knowing when to just clean or when to seal your sports floor to save long term costs
  • Specialist cleaning and buffing equipment to minimize damage to worn floors but ensure sufficient abrasion to key the new layer
