Artificial Grass

How to Clean and Maintain Artificial Grass?

How often you need to perform artificial grass maintenance tasks will depend on your particular situation. For example, if you have outdoor pets, children, or lots of trees and shrubs, you will likely need to clean your synthetic lawn more often than homeowners who do not have these factors at play. If you live in a particularly dusty area, this may also prompt you to rinse down your fake lawn more often.

Conversely, during rainy months, you can allow the rain to wash your lawn and may not need to spray it down as often. Because of the various factors that make your situation unique, consider the following maintenance schedule suggestion and amend it to best suit your needs.

With proper care and maintenance, you can extend the life of your synthetic lawn and keep it looking its best for years to come.

Performing these simple tasks on a regular basis will help ensure your lawn remains clean, lush and odor-free, which will make it an inviting place to relax, play, sunbathe, or hang out with family and friends.

To remove dust, dirt, leaves and other debris, use a flexible lawn rake, a broom with stiff bristles or a stiff brush. If you choose to use a stiff brush, make sure you do not choose one with steel bristles, which could damage the fake grass.

Cleaning your grass in this manner is also an effective way to maintain the upright position of each blade. Keep in mind that you may need to perform this level of maintenance more often if you have pets or during seasons when trees and shrubs lose their leaves or bloom.

Lawns are meant to be lived on, which means drinks may be spilled, chewing gum or candy may be dropped, roughhousing may result in a bit of blood or mustard may drip from plates during a family barbecue.

Artificial turf is stain resistant, which makes cleaning up spills and other accidents easy. Most spills can simply be rinsed away with water. If residue remains after hosing off the area, you can use a mild, natural soap with warm water or a half-and-half mix of vinegar and water, which is also a great option for removing bacteria.

The key to effectively removing spills is to respond quickly. Spills are easiest to remove when they are still in liquid form and can be simply washed away.

You can always call in a professional for a thorough cleaning, grooming or repair; however, you can keep costs to a minimum by taking steps to prevent artificial lawn damage and following a regular synthetic lawn maintenance routine.
