Rubber Crumb Removal

We have your playground rubber mulch replacement covered

Choose a Cleaner, Safer, and More Beautiful Playground

According to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), toxic chemicals, heavy metals, and carcinogens have been found in rubber tires that can be transferred to the outdoor playground rubber mulch. Furthermore, studies have found that, when heated, crumb rubber can emit volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, into the air. This has caused rubber mulch from shredded tires to be under heightened scrutiny by parent organizations calling for schools and cities to remove playground rubber mulch to protect children from these harmful chemicals.

SafetyFirst provides playground crumb removal as well as offers a safe and clean playground flooring replacement, Nature’sPlus engineered wood fiber.

In my nearly 30 years of facility management, SafetyFirst is the finest playground service company I have worked with, Bob Clarin, president of SafetyFirst was always available and was on site daily. From the simplest repair, a missing bolt to a complete rebuild including drainage and play structure relocation, SafetyFirst completed the work well and on time.

I would like to express my satisfaction with the wood chips and mats that we have purchased from SafetyFirst. The chips bind together well to make a nice playground surface with the fall protection we need. Bob has always had the materials delivered on a timely basis and is very pleasant to work with. I am sure we will be doing more business Bob and SafetyFirst in the future.
