The Ultimate Guide to Cleaning Artificial Grass
Cleaning artificial grass can be something that a lot of people forget about, once it’s been installed. To prevent this, we have put together a collection of things that need to be considered when caring for your artificial grass.
We will go over the topics of how to clean fake grass, artificial grass maintenance and what tools to use to keep the process effortless. We’ll also look into the best practice for treating artificial grass for pet owners too.
Cleaning Artificial Grass
Whilst Artificial Grass is low maintenance, you will need to pick up any loose dirt or debris. As a rule of thumb, we advise checking your grass on a weekly basis.
Any debris should be instantly visible such as dead leaves or excess mud. Simply rake or brush these away with a soft-headed brush, so that they don’t become intertwined with the grass blades or play havoc with your drainage system.
Lots of people turn to home remedies such as mixing 50% water and 50% vinegar to clean artificial grass. However, the smell of vinegar is not always favoured and can actually be quite off-putting.
Using Artificial Grass Cleaner kills bacteria and prevents anything from growing on the turf, whilst leaving your grass smelling great. As a specialist treatment, you can rest assured that it is child and pet-friendly too. Simply apply as per the manufacturer’s instructions and rinse down after use – easy peasy!
Some artificial grass ranges can require a sand infill. This will depend on the pile height of your grass, and the positioning of the blades. If your blades are looking a little flat, simply brush them back and top them up with a layer of infill.
