How to Control Pet Odor with Synthetic Grass Products

Pets bring joy and laughter to any home; however, they also often bring bad smells and messes. As much as you love your furry friend, there’s no denying that they make it difficult to maintain a fresh, perfectly green lawn year-round. With synthetic turf landscaping and regular turf cleaning services, however, you can keep your backyard smelling great no matter how big your four-legged family is.

Effective Drainage System

One of the features that makes artificial turf great for controlling pet odor is its highly efficient drainage capabilities. Synthetic turf is installed with a drainage system underneath the grass that allows more than 30 inches of water to drain per hour square yard. This means that any pet urine will drain through the turf and be washed out of your backyard, rather than settling on the surface and leaving a foul odor like with natural grass. It’s also extremely easy to rinse down your turf and flush away any pet waste; thanks to the efficient drainage, your turf will be dry within the hour. This means that there’s minimal slip risk, no surface pooling, and much less harmful bacteria left on your lawn. TurFresh’s turf cleaning services can further enhance this functionality by improving your turf’s drainage through regular maintenance. By removing pet hair and cross-brushing your turf, we’ll ensure that your drainage isn’t impeded so you’ll always have maximum efficiency.

Antimicrobial Infill

If you own pets and want to keep your yard clean, another important aspect of your artificial grass lawn to consider is the infill. Choosing a pet-friendly, antimicrobial infill product will help keep your pets safe and your yard smelling fresh. TurFresh offers its own pet-safe infill product that works to neutralize odors at the chemical level. Our BioFill infill exchanges ions with odor-causing elements in pet waste, trapping the odor and preventing it from ever reaching the nose. It’s all-natural, safe for kids, and stays cooler than other infills, so your lawn will be more enjoyable and more sanitary. 

Turf Deodorizer

The products you choose during the turf installation process and how well you maintain them are all crucial for controlling pet odor. However, for quick, as-needed touch-ups, there are turf deodorizer products such as TurFresh BioS+. TurFresh BioS+ is an enzymatic concentrate that digests uric acid crystals, urea, and proteins to effectively eliminate pet odor at the source. This combination of naturally-occurring microorganisms and enzymes results in a revolutionary biotechnology product that is used by homeowners and industry professionals alike. You can purchase it for your own as-needed use from our online store, or allow our technicians to do the work for you through our comprehensive 10-step turf cleaning process. Whichever way you choose to go, you can rest assured that your synthetic grass is in good hands when you choose TurFresh for pet odor elimination.
