Of course, natural grass is far more difficult to maintain than artificial grass however, homeowners should still consider doing regular maintenance on their turf to keep it looking good and to help it last longer. Don’t worry though, it’s not hard at all and the best part is, you won’t need a lawnmower!

Why Maintenance?

Synthetic grass is so easy to manage. Even though it looks real you don’t have to worry about all the laborious mowing, weed pulling, and watering. Artificial grass is engineered to last for years but it’s important to still do some basic maintenance. Over time, the blades of artificial grass can stay laying down due to high traffic or just from normal use. Also, just like any surface, dirt and debris can collect on the grass and ends up needing to be removed in order to look like new again. This is just like a rug or carpet, you wouldn’t just choose to leave your rug with dirt and debris for years on end. You would end up throwing out the rug because it would get gross. As a result, turf maintenance usually comes down to basic cleaning.

Tips on How to Clean Artificial Turf

In order to maintain appearance and lifespan, perform this basic maintenance routine regularly:

  • Keep artificial grass clear of debris and dirt using artificial grass maintenance equipment such as a rake, leaf blower, broom, and/or brush as needed. For best results, use an artificial grass maintenance brush with bristles at least five inches long. These brushes are made specifically for artificial grass so it gets the job done right the first time.
  • Use a hose to spray away any spills, dirt, or dust as needed. Artificial grass has a sheen just like natural grass so regular hosing will also help maintain the turf’s sheen. You might not even feel it needs it until you spay it down. You’ll notice a huge difference once complete. This step is especially recommended before having guests.
  • Clean stains with water and a mild detergent. Since the material is synthetic, stains will usually come out easily. Be to not use harsh chemicals if the stains are not coming out. Our recommendation would be to contact an artificial grass professional to see what their solution would be to remove the stain.
