Playground Maintenance Services, Inc.
We Do Custom Work and Renovations
The indoor playground concept raised the level of the fast-food restaurant from "quick in, quick out" to a "stay and play" family experience. Not only do children enjoy the climbing and sliding, jumping and in the playground, parents enjoy the opportunity to sit, relax, and enjoy their meal, while the little ones get their exercise. In short, playgrounds put the "fun" in fast food.
For the franchisee, a playground can seem like a nuisance instead of an asset- especially if you let routine maintenance and repairs slide. However, a lack of proper maintenance can turn a fun experience into a serious safety and health hazard. Additionally, outdated playgrounds can lose their customer appeal.
Having been in the playground maintenance business for 12 years and having formerly worked in the toy industry for 11 years, I understand both what children and parents are looking for in a safe, healthy attraction.
First, give your playground a quick daily once-over to make sure everything is in good working order and conduct a more through inspection once a week. The key to keeping the equipment both safe and looking good is regular preventive maintenance.
Second, keep your playground updated with the latest equipment. Many franchisees claim that a playground with all the latest bells and whistles is a huge competitive advantage.
Indeed, outdated playgrounds lose their child appeal, just like old toys.
Some ways to update an aging playground, while lowering maintenance costs include:
- Use gator skin "tuff pad" to reduce wear and tear on padding.
- Add pyramid tops for more curb appeal.
- Add play panels to add more "play value"
- In stall in-store games. Interactive game panels, electronic games, and sound systems that activate when a child enters the area are a great way to attract both young and older children to the play area.
If you are going to put in a playground, you have to do it well. Then, you must ensure they remain an attractive draw for the customer throughout the years by keeping them clean and safe.
Preventative regular maintenance, whether you do it yourself or use a service, will accomplish that and help keep your operating costs to a minimum.
