A trampoline provides both enjoyment and physical activity for children and adults alike. Because a trampoline is generally an outdoor structure, it is bound to collect leaves, dirt, twigs and even animal droppings. Cleaning your trampoline at least once a month prevents damage such as rust and structure breakdown and helps ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for years to come.
