Playground Maintenance Checklist
If you have a playground with a play set , you do need to ensure that you have a proper maintenance checklist to follow. Having this checklist helps you eliminate concerns, and it also makes the maintenance process a lot easier. With that in mind, here are some of the things you can try to focus on to keep your set in tip-top condition.
Wipe Down The Vinyl Posts and Beams
If you have an Adventure World playset, the lumber it’s made with is pressure-treated and covered in vinyl sleeves which protects it for years, making it sleek and great-looking. To keep it that way, a little wipe now and then always helps!
Wipe Swings And Slides
These can accumulate debris, dust and dirt so it’s important to wipe and clean them up frequently, especially during windy or rainy seasons. It’s one of those things in the playground maintenance checklist that can be tedious so you can always make it a fun activity by asking your kids to help out! These are tasks that will maintain a high level of safety and quality.
Check For Wear
One of the advantages you get from buying a high quality playset is that you don’t really have to do a whole lot, as far as maintenance is concerned, but checking for a bit of wear and tear now and then could help you identify little things that kids rough-tumbling it could cause, like a chip in the plastic or a worn-out swing-chain cover. Even if there are issues, in most cases the overall warranty will cover everything, so you won’t have to worry or have any safety concerns.
Some of the things you can keep an eye on, are:
- Check for loose, cracked or missing rungs on ladders and climbers.
- Check for no broken, missing, or corroded parts on the frame and beams.
- Check that the swing hangers move easily and are securely attached to the swing-beam.
- Check that there are no missing or loose screws, nuts and bolts.
There’s no denying that having a good playset maintenance checklist is always going to help. It takes a bit of trial and error to narrow down the maintenance tasks for your specific set, and these might vary from one set to another, for example, maybe you don’t have a rock-climbing wall, or a playhouse in yours. The reality is that you can never be too safe.Going down your maintenance checklist from time to time is indeed important and it will convey a great result and deliver a stellar difference in the long term.
