Treating your trampoline with care can ensure you a longer lasting trampoline, and more importantly, the safety of your family. Below you'll find some of our tips and suggestions on how to properly care and maintain the quality of your trampoline.
First and foremost, placing your trampoline in a safe location in your yard will provide the best stability and allow for minimal stress on the base of the trampoline. In addition, placing your trampoline in a shaded spot will reduce its vulnerability to sun damage. Try positioning the trampoline somewhere that is at least shaded for a portion of the day.
Keep it Clean
Keeping you trampoline clean is an essential part of extending the life of the trampoline mat. This means avoid letting debris such as leaves, dirt, or snow build up on the mat. For additional precaution, you can clean the mat periodically with soap, water, and a soft bristle brush.
For Those of You Up North
If you live somewhere where it snows and don't plan to use your trampoline during the winter months, it may be a good idea to disassemble your trampoline and store it in a dry place. If this is too much of a hassle, we'd recommend making sure to avoid any build up of snow on the mat. This will put additional stress on the mat and, as the snow melts, create an extended period of time where the mat is exposed to wetness.
A Few Extra Tips
Finally, follow some basic care rules. Don't exceed the manufacturer recommended weight limit, don't wear shoes when jumping, and check up on the trampoline's condition regularly. This means looking for holes in the mat, rust on the springs, or bends in the frame. If you see any of these issues begin to occur, contact the manufacturer to submit a warranty claim.
