Regardless of whether a tennis court surface is porous macadam, impervious or porous acrylic, regular cleaning and maintenance is essential to maintain the looks and performance characteristics of tennis courts.

An important aid to the cleaning is the chemical treatment of the moss and algae which makes the cleaning process more effective and extends the period of time before cleaning is necessary.
