After high-intensity exercise, the artificial grass field should have a certain rest time. Due to the limitation of the uprightness and resilience of artificial yarns, if under heavy load for a long time, the yarn will be damaged, which will eventually affect the overall lifespan of the site.

After the grass installed, regular maintenance should be carried out, and all kinds of residues on the turf should be cleaned up in time. Sports that require sharp equipment such as javelins and spikes should not be performed. Regularly check whether the filling in the turf is lost and whether the joints are open, and repair in time if any problems are found.
