Washing a trampoline is surprisingly easy. The first step you need to take is to thoroughly sweep the trampoline and remove all debris from the main jumping surface, as well as, the mat and the springs. Leaving leaves and clutter in the springs will eventually damage the metal. Next you will want to soak the trampoline with a water hose, while that’s soaking in prepare a pail with warm soapy water, you want there to be a lot of suds so the ratio need a low water to soap ratio. To spread this soapy concoction onto the trampoline you’ll probably have to actually climb onto it unless it has a small enough circumference you can reach from the ground to the middle. There’s a reason mom usually had us kids do this. Using a broom or towel you want to wipe down the whole surface making sure to scrub off any stains left from kids face planting or the local wildlife. Once you’ve done this there’s an optional step of letting kids jump for a bit working the whole thing into a damp, foaming mess before using the hose to once again rinse all the soap from the trampoline. Try to get all the soap, if it’s left on it’ll leave an awful sticky residue on the trampoline once it dries. Finally, towel dry the rings and frame to prevent rusting and dry the jumping surface as well, letting the whole thing dry in the sun risks making it brittle and prone to ripping.
When in doubt it’s always wise to check your manufacturer’s website or consult your owner’s manual for proper care instructions. Also, to avoid having to clean leavings from mother nature’s encounters with your trampoline as frequently, keep it out from under any trees that may drip sap or provide bird perches.
