So even though Artificial Grass never needs mowing, to ensure the best appearance it does need some maintenance. Pollen, Leaves and dirt can often coat the turf, plus obviously pet ’stains’, however regular rinsing washing and spot cleaning will keep your turf in great shape.
We recommend you follow the following guide:
Rinse the grass on a weekly basis to help keep dust and pollen at bay. Pick up twigs and stones, and use a lawn rake or broom to gather fallen leaves every few weeks, or as needed. Sweeping the turf also helps brush the its fibres back up straight.
Gentle Treatment for Minor Areas – Treat slightly dirty areas with a mild natural soap. Use a sponge mop soaked in the solution for a large area, or use a regular sponge to wipe down a small spot. You can use this same cleaning solution to give the entire turf a thorough cleaning every month or two; just be sure to use a natural, eco-friendly soap. Rinse off any areas you’ve washed.
Pet Patrol – it is best to Deal with pet-based problems as soon as you spot them. Pick up solid waste with a bag or a designated scooper. Hose down urine and fecal areas – to help keep odors at bay. Some people recommend that you spray equal parts white vinegar and water over the area to help cleanse the turf and get rid of bacteria.
Stubborn Stains – Remove more stubborn stains, such as coffee, using standard eco-friendly household cleaners, rinsing the areas thoroughly with water afterward. Stains such as ink or permanent marker may be removed by dabbing the spot with rubbing alcohol. Rinse the area thoroughly when you’re done.
We believe that these simple care tips will help keep your Artificial Lawn in pristine condition; when you remember the estimated 120 hours spent annually on the lawnmower and in lawn maintenance, alongside the saving of an estimated 55 gallons of water per year per foot needed for natural lawns more than a synthetic lawn, its a small price to pay.
