At the beginning of the play season:
Tighten all hardware.
Lubricate all metallic moving parts per manufacturer's instructions.
Check all protective coverings on bolts, pipes, edges, and corners. Replace if they are loose, cracked or missing.
Check all moving parts including swing seats, ropes, cables, and chains for wear, rust or other deterioration. Replace as needed.
Check metal parts for rust. If found, sand and repaint using a nonlead-based paint meeting the requirements of 16 CRF 1303.
Check all wood members for deterioration and splinters. Sand down splinters and replace deteriorating wood members.
Reinstall any plastic parts, such as swing seats or any other items that were removed for the cold season.
Rake and check depth of loose fill protective surfacing materials to prevent compaction and to maintain an appropriate depth. Replace as necessary.
