Soft Playground Flooring – Three Questions To Ask Your Contractor
Soft playground flooring and rubber surfacing are only effective if correctly installed by experienced flooring professionals. But with so many outdoor flooring companies offering their services, how do you know which one to pick? The key is to do your research and to ask these three key questions.
Whether you are looking to install a new soft rubber play surface in a school, nursery or public playground, the first question you need to ask the surfacing contractors is whether their staff are DBS checked. While the contractors are unlikely to come into direct contact with the children, particularly in a school or nursery setting, it gives you additional peace of mind and ensures you have undertaken your due diligence in relation to child protection. Quite simply, if the contractors have not undergone DBS checks, don’t use them. The next most important question to ask is whether those undertaking the surfacing work on your playground flooring hold CSCS Cards. This scheme is your safeguard that the individuals working on your property have the skills, experience and training they need to work effectively and safely. Again, if they don’t hold such a card, then don’t use them. The third question you need to ask is who they have worked for before. By requesting references from previous local authorities, schools and nurseries, you can ensure that you will get the standard of surfacing work and quality of finish that you expect. If no previous client is willing to give a reference, alarm bells should be ringing.
