How To Clean Artificial Grass

May 21, 2019

Knowing how to clean artificial grass is a crucial component of owning a synthetic turf yard or field. Cleaning artificial grass is almost too easy, with maintenance requiring little more than a couple of steps. Once you know how to clean turf, you’ll save oodles of time and money by never having to mow, fertilize, or water your lawn to have a fresh, green yard.

Synthetic grass care depends on your specific situation. For example, families with pets, young children who like to play outside, or those who live surrounded by trees and particularly dusty areas should pay special attention. Not to worry, though – a little bit of care goes a long way.


Clearing Debris
One of the easiest things you can do to maintain your property value with synthetic grass is to regularly clear any debris off the surface. You can use tools like rakes or leaf blowers to get rid of any branches, fallen leaves, and other organic waste that could land on top of your turf. When you clear debris off your fake grass, it helps to maintain a clean, groomed look.


A Little Bit Of H2O
A gentle spray down of your lawn each week will help it out immensely. Use a hose to clean dust, dirt, and pollen off the surface. Occasional watering will also help prevent unequal infill distribution. To allow the base to set, try not to over-water your synthetic lawn for the first 4 to 6 weeks after installation and keep an eye on your local weather forecast.


Pick Up After Your Pets
As much as we love our furry friends, we don’t love the messes they can make. At Arizona Luxury Lawns, all our synthetic turf is made with 100% recyclable, pet-friendly products. Cleaning up solid waste is just as easy on our fake grass as it is on natural grass. Plastic bags and pooper scoopers work just fine, but take care to douse the dirty spot with a little bit of water to prevent unsightly spots. Weekly rinsing of your lawn will also help prevent odors.


Power Washing
Biodegradable enzyme cleaners that are alcohol-free are also recommended for heavy-duty cleaning. Our team of experts recommends non-foaming substances, or even a 10% solution of bleach and water. Be careful not to use too much bleach though, because it can collect in turf infill and can create a bleachy smell and be harsh on paws and skin. Place your cleaning materials into a pressurized spray bottle with a hand wand and you’re ready to power wash! Just give it a light rinse with water afterwards!
