Cleaning Your Trampoline Jump Mat, Padding and Enclosure

As your trampoline is constantly exposed to the elements, it’s natural for dirt and debris to accumulate after a while. Here’s how to clean the textile parts of your Kahuna trampoline, including the jump mat, safety net and padding.

What You’ll Need:

  • A bucket
  • A garden hose
  • A long-handled broom
  • A dustpan and brush
  • A sponge
  • Old towels

Before You Clean:

  • Choose a sunny day to clean your trampoline mat and enclosure. This will help speed up the drying process!
  • Don’t use hard-bristled brooms, brushes or a pressure washer to clean your trampoline mat or net. These can damage the soft material.

How to Clean a Trampoline Jump Mat and Net:

1. Brush off leaves and debris from the trampoline.

Start by removing all visible debris from your trampoline mat. Climb inside the trampoline and sweep all leaves and twigs into a dustpan.

After you dispose of the leaves, lift the safety pad and inspect the springs. (Make sure no one is jumping on the trampoline when you are doing this!) Brush off any leaves or twigs you may have missed.

2. Soak the net and jumping mat with water.

Use a garden hose or bucket to soak the net and jumping mat. Be careful of the pressure when using a hose!

3. Make a cleaning solution with mild soap and water.

Fill your bucket with warm water and two tablespoons of washing liquid or dish soap. Mix thoroughly, adding more soap if needed.

Kahuna Tip: You don’t need any harsh chemicals to clean your trampoline mat. A simple soap and water solution will get the job done effectively.

4. Clean the net.

If your net is visibly stained or requires deep cleaning, you may want to take it off the trampoline first. Otherwise, gently scrub the net with a soft brush or sponge dipped in your cleaning solution. (Don’t forget the pole sleeves and zipper entrance!)

5. Rinse off the net.

Using a bucket or garden hose, rinse off the net thoroughly. It’s very important that you rinse off all the soap as any residue can harden or damage the net fabric. Rinsing the net first prevents the soap from drying while you clean the mat.

6. Scrub the jumping mat thoroughly.

After rinsing the net, you can start cleaning the mat. Working in sections, scrub the mat using a sponge or brush soaked in the soapy water solution. Rinse the mat as you go and keep scrubbing until the water runs clear from the trampoline.

7. Rinse off the jumping mat and net.

Give the jumping mat and net one last rinse, making sure that the water runs clear before you dry off the trampoline.

8. Soak up excess water with old towels.

To speed up the drying process, remove as much excess moisture as you can with some old towels. Once the trampoline is no longer dripping, wipe off the frame and springs with a dry cloth.

9. Clean the trampoline safety pad with a clean towel.

The trampoline padding is waterproof, which makes it easier to clean than the net and mat. All you have to do is wipe it with soapy water and give it a rinse after.

10. Leave the trampoline to dry.

Remove all towels and leave the trampoline net and mat to dry under the sun. Once it’s all dry, you can sit back, relax and enjoy your shiny clean trampoline!
