Maintaining children's play areas requires different measures performed at intervals that depend on the requirements of each specific task. To guarantee the quality of these areas, five preventative inspections are conducted each week to detect anomalies in and damage to games and fences that surround play areas.
Corrective maintenance is carried out 5 times a week. This maintenance consists of repairing damage detected in the preventative inspection. If there is a danger present, a brigade will resolve it immediately. In addition, waste, abandoned objects and sand accumulated in equipment are removed at least 5 times a week and paint is removed.
Aeration and disinfection of sandpits
Sandpits are aerated and disinfected every 2 months, with the process consisting of sponging and levelling out the sand. The sand is disinfected with steam at a temperature of 90ºC.
The aim of this inspection, which is conducted every 3 months, is to guarantee the safety of play areas. It consists of inspecting the bases and level foundation of games, the good condition of the impact-absorption surface and the detection of possible foundations and signs of wear-and-tear.
50% of sand in play areas is replaced and 40% of children's equipment is painted each year.
