Cleaning Manual

The maintenance of an SPI Playsystem is important for both the safety of the customer and the longevity of the equipment. Eliminating the sources of danger can be achieved by providing a clean and safe play area for your customers. A brief check for structural defects, vandalism and litter should be performed on a daily basis.

Cleaning & Maintenance Recommendations for KidsCubePlaysystems

This style of playsystem is low maintenance and easy to clean and designed specifically to reduce maintenance and cleaning costs:

  • Non-grid format = ease of cleaning and maintenance
  • Little to no post foam
