For many inground and above ground trampoline owners, the season for rebounding has past. If you’re looking at your trampoline and wondering if it will serve you another season, you may be wondering how to restore a trampoline and we have tips.
Don’t think you have to completely toss away your inground or above ground trampoline because some of the components need some tender loving care.
How To Restore A Trampoline
- Check the trampoline frame. This is the component that is most responsible for the trampoline being safe to use. Check the frame for corrosion or any weak spots and give your trampoline retailer a call to find out about replacing damaged or worn parts.
- Inspect the jump mat. You’re looking for pilling on the surface, any worn areas around the springs and any portion where it looks worn on the mat itself. You can replace the jump mat and breath new life into the entire trampoline. Being diligent in the use of a jump mat cover will help extend the life of the jump mat and protect it from the elements and from the damaging rays of the sun.
- The springs on the trampoline can wear out, stretch or corrode over time. Look at the springs when they are at rest and measure the length of the spring from the mat to the frame. Do they appear stretched out? Are they in fact stretched out from their original length? If so, give us a call and let’s get them replaced before your next trampoline season comes around.
- Is the safety enclosure intact? Have winds damaged the supports of the enclosure? Are there any rips or tears in the enclosure? If the answer is yes, you will want to replace them before anyone uses it again.
Depending on where you live, it might make sense to disassemble the trampoline and store it safety away so it isn’t damaged by harsh weather conditions.
