Old Cracked Gym Floor

When a gym floor has seen better days, it can be tough to determine whether to continue with repairs or upgrade. Repairs might stop the damage from worsening, but in some cases, they could cost you more in the long run. In this article, we’ll discuss the steps you can take to repair a gym floor, signs that it’s time for an upgrade, and why Sport Court technology is the best choice for sports facilities and residential courts.

Repairing a Gym Floor

When your gym floor gets damaged, gym floor repairs are necessary to stop further damage from occurring. Depending on the extent of the damage, you can repair a gym floor in either small sections or in its entirety. The steps for fixing a gym floor are as follows:

Assess the damages: Before initiating repairs, assess the extent of damages to your gym floor. This will help determine how much time and materials you need for repairs.

Remove loose debris: Loose debris can cause more problems in the future if left untreated, so it’s essential to clean it up before beginning repairs. Vacuum or mop up any dirt and dust surrounding the affected area.

Patch and sand: Use a patching compound to fill any deep scratches or gouges on the floor surface. Allow it to dry before lightly sanding the area with fine-grit paper.

Polish: If polishing the gym floor, use an industrial strength cleaner and buffer to buff up dull areas. Or, if only certain sections need polishing, you can do this by hand with a polishing pad.

Knowing When It’s Time For an Upgrade

While repairs can do the trick for minor damages to your gym floor, more serious issues require a complete upgrade. There are some telltale signs that you should look out for when determining whether or not it’s time for an upgrade:

  • Deep cracks and gouges in the surface
  • Loosening of floorboards
  • Signs of water damage
  • Stains or discoloration on the surface
