Artificial grass requires little maintenance. However, since it is generally installed outside, it can still become dirty and tarnished over time due to the outside weather conditions. Dust can gather, dried leaves can pile up and fluids can soak in, just like on any other type of surface.
If you want to know how to clean your artificial grass without causing any damage and maintaining all its beauty we recommend you to read on:
Clean dry leaves:
When autumn has arrived it is normal for your lawn to be filled with leaves, pine needles, etc. But don’t worry, these are very easy to clean. You will only need a rake of hard non-metallic bristles, preferably of rubber teeth or a wide and soft brush to sweep them up and form piles that you can then put inside a garbage bag. Easy as pie!
If you prefer, you can also pick them up with a blower, both options work just as well.
Urine or other organic residues:
If you have pets you will know by now that they love to enjoy artificial grass, sometimes they relieve themselves on it. Our Turfgrass artificial grass PU backing does not retain the urine smell, so you should not worry. In addition, it doesn’t create stains. The droppings, on the contrary will need to be removed.
To clean both the urine and any excrement rest, simply clean the lawn with water and some neutral PH soap.
Most stains can be easily removed by rubbing the surface with a cloth dampened in liquid detergent (neutral pH or with soft acid) with hot water. It is possible to disinfect the grass using any non-abrasive product.
We do not recommend in any case to clean the artificial grass with bleach since it can damage the fibres.
Oil stains can be cleaned can be cleaned with the help of a cloth dampened in denatured alcohol.
Dust and dirt in general, liquid spillage:
These remains can be removed by a short spray or with a simple “hose” of water.
Chewing gum can be treated with ice cubes or freezing spray. The gum will harden and will then be more easily removed.
