Sanitation of Short Mat Carpets

 

The Return to Play Protocol states: 1.2 Two club members will prepare the mats and playing equipment with hygiene in mind and disinfected for safe use by bowlers. This includes sanitising fenders, foot mats, block and jack on each mat. Mats should be laid at least one metre apart. After the game this equipment should be disinfected again before it is returned to storage.”

 

The advice given by one of the leading short mat carpet manufacturers on the matter was as follows:

 

“At present we do not recommend trying to sanitise the carpet with any cleaning products as this can react with the carpet fibres and cause damage the carpet surface or foam backing.


However, we do recommend the people laying out and packing away the carpets and equipment wear gloves and also wear the special indoor bowling shoes.  As the wearing of specific bowling shoes is already stipulated as a requirement in our mat guarantee we feel the risk should be very minimal.Therefore, we feel that there would be little to no risk of contamination being active on the carpet if all normal sensible screening methods in general practise, mask wearing etc., are followed.

Going forward it is far easier for players to sanitise all the playing equipment, the bowls, jack, fenders etc., which will need to be handled for play.”
