How do you clean artificial grass?

January 2019

The key to keep your synthetic grass looking its best is doing regular cleanings. 

The frequency of the cleaning varies with the type of activities you do on the synthetic grass. For example, having pets playing or passing by the area where there is synthetic grass, using the synthetic grass area as kids’ playground or getting lots of dust and tree debris may require weekly cleaning. Instead, if your synthetic grass is used solely for landscaping, monthly cleaning may be enough. 

If you decide to perform a weekly cleaning of your grass, you may want to rinse the grass fibers with a hose, this will remove any accumulated dust, debris or wastes.

Can pets pee and poop on artificial grass?

November 2018

Desert Turf is ideal for pets, however additional little maintenance may be required for the safety of your pet and to keep your grass looking great. When you want to remove solid droppings just use the same method you use in any other surface -such as a plastic bag- then hose down the area to make sure it all goes away.

Sometimes pets find a preferred spot to release themselves, this makes it easier for you to clean just that area. A weekly cleaning is recommended when you have pets, specially to remove any hidden droppings and urine. It is ok if you decide to hose down your synthetic grass more frequently. It is recommended that you use a turf deodorizer to keep your turf free from odors.
