When is the last time you cleaned your inground or above ground trampoline? If you’re scratching your head because you just can’t remember, we offer you these how to clean your trampoline tips.
Even if you use a cover for the jump mat and if the trampoline springs are covered, it still makes sense to take time to clean the entire trampoline. Add “clean the trampoline” to your monthly to-do list and definitely to your spring cleaning list.
How To Clean Your Trampoline
Here is what you will need to gather in order to clean your trampoline: a bucket filled with warm water and a mild detergent, sponges or a soft cleaning cloth, a hose and dry towels.
Before you clean the trampoline, remove any debris from the jump mat and from inside the springs and padding. If you scrub the mat and there’s dirt or debris on it you run the risk of damaging the jump mat surface.
Hose down the jump mat and the spring covers. Once it’s wet, climb up and use your bucket of warm, soapy water and the sponge or soft cloth and gently clean the surface. Don’t scrub roughly and don’t use any kind of brush to clean the mat. Remove the clean all of the spring covers.
Once everything is clean you will want to dab it dry with your clean, dry towels. Choose a time to clean the trampoline when you know it’s going to be sunny for a few days and that you aren’t planning to jump on it until it’s completely dry.
How often should you clean the trampoline mat?
The frequency should be based on often you use it — the more use it sees, the more often it should be cleaned, but on average, it should be cleaned at least monthly.
