Unfortunately, whether you live in San Diego, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Santa Ana or Phoenix, odor is an unavoidable part of artificial grass ownership. Since synthetic turf is inorganic, it’s liable to grow bacteria that rapidly spread if you don’t properly maintain it.
The good news is that routine artificial grass maintenance is an easy way to keep odor at bay. If you hose down your yard periodically, remove pet waste promptly, and otherwise look after your turf, you’ll be able to keep odors to a minimum.
An invaluable part of the turf maintenance process is the use of artificial turf disinfectants. These disinfectants or deodorizers come in a variety of forms that make application easy and odor elimination remarkably effective. Here are three of the most common forms of synthetic grass disinfectant that you can keep on hand for odor control.
Although the most effort to apply of the three forms, powder deodorizers have the potential to be incredibly effective against odor-causing bacteria. Powder artificial turf disinfectant is applied liberally over the turf, working its way deep down into the base of the blades to absorb moisture and eliminate odors.
Since the powder is so lightweight, wind can blow away some of the deodorizer before it goes to work. Because of this, a liberal coating is applied to ensure that enough is left to effectively deodorize the lawn.
If you have pets that frequently urinate in the same concentrated areas of your lawn, a spray form of artificial turf disinfectant is often the best way to go. Both convenient and economical, deodorizing sprays such as TurFresh BioS+ are highly effective at eliminating pet odors and other sources of odor-causing bacteria.
A spray bottle can be easily applied to the areas where you need odor elimination without over-using the product. It can also be applied to walls, hardscaping, and any other parts of your backyard that need odor control and disinfecting.
Artificial Turf Infill Products
Infill is a necessary component of any artificial grass lawn. It’s added between the turf blades during the installation process, and it should be topped up periodically during your artificial grass maintenance routine to maintain appropriate levels.
Odor-eliminating infill products such as TurFill are a great low-maintenance layer of added protection against bacteria and odors. TurFill both absorbs liquids and neutralizes compounds, preventing excess moisture which causes bacteria and eliminating the odor caused by existing bacteria for long-lasting freshness.
Swapping out your existing infill for deodorizing infill is an efficient and effective way to prevent pet odors during the regular course of synthetic turf maintenance. It’s also safe for kids and pets since it’s all-natural and non-toxic.
