Title: Cleaning artificial/net wickets
Post by: joeljonno on April 05, 2016, 08:41:16 PM
Exciting topic this   ;)

Our practice/artificial wicket is very wet and mossy after this winter.  Anyone got any tips on the best way to get rid of the moss?  Is it purely a good brushing or should I use some moss-killer first?

Thanks

Joel

I personally would just brush it, not sure what chemicals can damage the matting

My brother in law works for a company who manufactures ECB approved carpets, I'll ask him tomorrow what's the best method of cleaning

Cheers. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Good thinking on the pressure washer idea.

Strimmer at an angle hitting against it. Discussed a fair bit on pitch care if you do a search on there!

Pressure wash or use the scarifier with the brush attachment. Ours is awful and is too far away from any plugs to pressure wash. The Scarifier does an ok job but really a pressure washer would sort it out.
