7 Reasons To Clean The Trampoline Mat

While you may not get your children to make their bed or pick up their clothes from the floor, we bet they will want to clean the trampoline jump mat! Why? Because trampolines are fun! They also need care to keep the mat healthy and safe. We have put together this list of 7 reasons to clean the trampoline mat, and how.

You may think that because your in-ground or above ground trampoline are outdoors and get rained on, that it doesn’t need to be cleaned, but that would be a wrong thought. Because they are outdoors, they need to be cleaned because of dirt, debris, bird droppings and dust.

Clean the jump mat at least monthly — especially if you don’t have a mat cover and depending on where the trampoline is located. You don’t want sticks, twigs, pinecones or other debris to snag the jump mat and you don’t want to jump on it if there is debris.

7 Reasons To Clean The Trampoline Mat

Get ready to clean the jump mat this week, the make note on the calendar and clean it in a month

  1. As mentioned, clean the mat to remove debris. Do so carefully so the debris doesn’t snag the mat.
  2.  Use a very soft bristle broom or brush and gently sweep off surface dirt and debris after you’ve picked off the larger pieces.
  3. Inspect the mat for any rips, snags or holes once you’ve cleaned off the debris. If there is damage, you may need to repair it before you use it. A small hole can become larger and someone could get hurt.
  4. Use mild dish soap and warm water and a sponge to clean the jump mat. Don’t use any cleaning product with harsh solvents because that could damage the mat’s fibers.
  5. Rinse the mat with a hose – no pressure washer – until the soap is gone and the water is clear.
  6. Try to clean the mat before it’s been exposed to the hot sun for the afternoon. Clean it before the sun gets too high in the sky or after it cools off.
  7. Declare the mat off limits until it’s completely dry. If anyone jumps on the trampoline on a wet mat can get injured because the mat will be slippery and unsafe for use.  

If you’ve been looking for a way to amp up the fun in your backyard, consider installing an in-ground trampoline.

Why Are In-Ground Trampolines Great?

“We want a trampoline!” Have you been hearing this from your children? Are you the one who wants an in-ground trampoline or an above-ground trampoline? If so, we want to share with you why in-ground trampolines are great. We think they are so great that we built our business around offering high-quality, made in the USA trampolines for our clients from across the country!

What is one of the main reasons people want an in-ground trampoline? Well, there are two!

  1. They reduce height injury
  2. They blend in with your backyard landscaping
  3. BONUS: They provide great bounce!

Why Are In-Ground Trampolines Great?

Sit back, relax and read on!

  1. Safety matters. The biggest thing you want to consider for any purchase is SAFETY! An in-ground trampoline is considered safer than above ground styles because of the height factor. With an in-ground trampoline, the distance between the hard ground and a jumper is reduced and that could be safer. Keep in mind that if you jump outside of the trampoline mat area you can still get injured — be safe always.
  2. No exposed metal. An IGT (in-ground trampoline) is safer than above ground trampoline because there are no exposed metal pieces or springs. Yes, we do also sell spring covers for both above ground and in-ground trampolines. The pad covers the lip of the trampoline retaining wall, adding an additional couple of inches protection
  3. We carry safety nets for both in-ground and above ground trampolines.
  4. Aesthetically-appealing option. This style trampoline will not obstruct your view of the backyard. Your sightline will remain as is until you see the happy children jumping on the trampoline!
  5. Performance matters. We have had our customers reach out to us and let us know they purchased the IGT system for the athlete in the family. No matter if you’re a gymnast, runner, martial arts expert or someone looking to get in shape without risk of injury, an IGT is ideal.

5 In-ground Trampoline FAQs

When you want to own an in-ground or an above ground trampoline there are a lot of considerations, but where do you start? We have put together 5 in-ground trampoline FAQs to help you ask questions, know what you want and where to find out more answers.

A trampoline may not be the biggest investment you make in fun for your backyard space, but it is something you want to make certain is:

  1. Safe
  2. Functional
  3. Aesthetically pleasing
  4. Affordable
  5. Durable

5 In-ground Trampoline FAQs

Here are questions to get you started on your trampoline purchase and know what questions to ask.

  1. Do I need to hire a crew to help with the installation of an in-ground trampoline? Nope! It should take two adults fewer than two hours to assemble the in-ground trampoline, once the pit is excavated. You may want to recruit three or four adults to help lower the structure into the pit.
  2. How does the pit get excavated? There are some of our customers who dig their own hole with shovels and hard labor! There are others who hire local excavators. There are still others who will rent, or hire, a company to comein with excavating equipment and make short work of the project.
  3. Will there be standing water in the pit? You don’t want that so we recommend the IGT system to be installed two to four inches above the ground, burming the soil up to the edge of the trampoline. This keeps water from flowing into the pit if there is a heavy rain or snow melt and will also maintain a flush mount appearance. Depending on your local soil conditions, you may want to add a few inches of gravel in the bottom of the pit creating a sump effect to prevent standing water.
  4. I don’t live by your facility, how can I get my in-ground trampoline? Our IGT system can be shipped anywhere in the U.S. for $250. The system is delivered in four boxes totaling approximately 330lbs. Shipping rates outside the U.S. depend on location and tax implications. Price quotes are available upon request.
  5. What is the warranty policy on your made in the USA products? The frame is warrantied for ten years; the springs for three years; the pad and jump mat for two years. We also carry all the replacement parts for your trampoline.

Does Your Trampoline Need Replacement?

Before you enthusiastically open your in-ground or above ground trampoline for the summer, please take some time and perform an inspection. At some point you will need to ask yourself, does your trampoline need replacement? The answer may be — yes, or some parts of it, or none of it!

When you have to replace parts on your in ground trampoline or above ground trampoline, please contact us and make certain you are buying the highest quality, made in the USA replacement parts available.

Please check these trampoline items:

  1. Are there any holes or unevenly worn out areas
  2. Are any of the springs rusted
  3. Are any of the springs stretched out
  4. Is the net enclosure sturdy
  5. Are the spring-covering safety pads in place and viable

The initial investment you make in your trampoline will go a long way in ensuring it will remain viable and safe for many years. You will want to ensure you’re buying springs that are meant to withstand outdoor elements and withstand rusting. Investing in a high-quality trampoline, working and buying from an experienced supplier ensures if you require replacement parts for your trampoline, that they will be available.

How to inspect the trampoline

The trampoline needs to be inspected every few weeks — not just at the beginning and end of the season. You’re checking for: holes, unevenly worn areas, loose nuts and bolts and stretched out springs.

Any damaged areas on the trampoline means you should declare it off limits until you have repaired and replaced those damaged items. Jumping on a trampoline can be dangerous; it could make the difference between a soft mat trampoline landing or hitting the unforgiving ground.

Does Your Trampoline Need Replacement?

If you have any doubts or questions about the integrity of your trampoline, it’s better safe than sorry and to not use it until it can be thoroughly inspected and replacement parts ordered if necessary.

6 Reasons Trampoline Exercise is Great!

You know that exercising is important to your health. There is no doubt about that, right? That’s why we have put together 6 reasons trampoline exercise is great! There are many reasons people don’t exercise and they include:

  1. Being so out of shape that exercising is painful and injurious
  2. Not knowing where to start
  3. The weather is too hot and it can be dangerous (those who live in Arizona understand that.  

Because exercise is critical to health and because you want to do it in a safe manner, there are reasons to exercise on an in-ground trampoline. As with any exercise, talk with your physician to ensure it is safe and that you’re healthy enough to undertake this type of exercise — we bet your doctor will approve of a low to no-impact workout. 

6 Reasons Trampoline Exercise is Great!

  1. You won’t suffer knee or hip pain when you jump on a trampoline. Rebounding is “softened” by the trampoline taking your weight.
  2. When you workout on a trampoline you wont have to take days off or need downtime between workouts because you won’t be suffering any pain from the workout like you might from jogging or lifting weights.
  3. Low impact workouts are ideal for anyone who is just starting to workout and for anyone of any age.
  4. When rebounding you experience euphoria because you’re so weightless while you’re in the air. Rebounding also strengthens the lymphatic system and helps move and remove toxins from the body.
  5. You won’t dread a trampoline workout because it’s not painful and it’s fun.
  6. We can almost guarantee that when you buy a trampoline that you will continue to use it — unlike many home gym sets ups which get discarded and forgotten.
  7. Another benefit is that you’ll be outdoors and just being in nature has a beneficial effect on your mood and your health!

5 Family Trampoline Buying Tips For 2021

Buying a trampoline for your family can be a somewhat daunting task! We have put together a list of 5 family trampoline buying tips for 2021 that you will definitely want to read.

If your children have been asking for one and you have realized how great they are for working out, this should be the year you decide whether you want an inground or an above ground trampoline. Buying a trampoline that is just right for your family is something we talk with our customers about regularly.

Do your research. Find a trampoline sales person with whom you feel comfortable. Know that you can purchase a trampoline — inground or above ground from us and rest assured you are getting the highest quality trampoline for your budget.

5 Family Trampoline Buying Tips For 2021

Do your research and consider the answers to these questions.

  1. Do you want an above ground or an inground trampoline? Above ground cost less, but will impact the view in your yard. An inground trampoline may cost more, but it will blend in with the surroundings.
  2. The location of the trampoline may also play a role in which style you invest in. Do you have enough space to safely place a trampoline that will have the area above the trampoline free from danger? An overhang on a roof or tree branches can cause injury and you need to know where the trampoline will be placed and if there are any potential overhead dangers.
  3. Do you have a preference on the shape? A rectangle trampoline provides more bounce area. Round ones keep the rebounder centered on the jump mat.
  4.  Even though it is safest — and we recommend — only one person use the trampoline at a time, how many jumpers do you believe will be using it? If there are more than one jumper and if they are of similar weights they may be safe enough to jump together. You will also want to consider the highest weight of the jumpers. Look for a jump mat and springs that can accommodate that weight.
  5. Budget for safety. Look at accessories including: jump mat quality, spring quality and material, spring covers, trampoline enclosure, mat protection cover and others. Talk with us about your safety concerns.

Look for a reputable dealer for your trampoline — no matter the style. Talk with them and look at their online reviews. Talk with him or her and ask questions about the buying process based on your unique needs.
