One of the benefits of using a synthetic turf is it doesn’t require a lot of maintenance. There is no need for mowing and sowing. This means that you will be able to save time and money. However, to ensure that the grass will look its best, regular cleaning is still required. Don’t worry; it’s not as laborious compared to cleaning and maintaining a natural lawn.
Regular cleaning is done depending on the situation of your house. Homeowners who have kids or pets need to clean more often as compared to those who don’t. Also, if you are living in a dusty area, you should cleanse the artificial grass more often.
How Often Should You Clean
Lightly rinse the artificial grass once a week. You can spray its grass fibers using a hose in order to remove small debris and dust.
Do a thorough cleaning every month to maintain the lawn’s beauty. Dust, leaves, and dirt can be removed using a flexible rake, stiff brush (don’t use steel bristles) or broom (stiff bristles).
If the grass is not standing the way you want it to, just use a handled brush or broom to groom the lawn. Brush the grass in the opposite direction of its natural grain.
Regular maintenance keeps the infill of the synthetic turf compact and prevents matting.
