How to Care for Your Synthetic Turf

While synthetic grass saves you time and money since they do not need to be watered, fertilized, or mowed, your artificial grass still needs to be properly and carefully taken care of. Below are a few tips from ForeverLawn Northern Ohio on how to maintain your synthetic turf in Cleveland, OH.

Keep It Free of Debris

Clear the fallen leaves, branches, and other debris on your artificial turf using a leaf blower or a rake. Brush your turf gently to keep its structure by remaining in its upright position. By doing so, your synthetic turf will portray a groomed and clean look.

Be Vigilant Against Stains

Stains are the bane of synthetic turf products. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to do much to prevent stains from getting on your turf, especially if you have kids and pets around. If your turf does happen to get stained, you can clean it using hot water and soap. Avoid scrubbing the stain using a stiff brush because it can damage your synthetic turf. Instead, use a sponge to remove your stains.

When it comes to stains, it’s important to clean it as soon as you notice to avoid permanent damage. Otherwise, you might be looking at a new synthetic turf installation.

Watering

You should occasionally water your synthetic grass not to make it grow, but to remove dirt, dust or pollen. Ensure you gently spray your turf every week to prevent uneven distribution of infill. Avoid chemicals and the use of machines when cleaning synthetic turf. For more information, you can get in touch with a reputable synthetic turf supplier for cleaning product recommendations.

Avoid Placing Heat-Generating Tools

To maintain the lush, green appearance of your artificial turf, avoid placing tools and machines that generate heat directly on top of your lawn.
