Artificial grass is rising exponentially in popularity due to its low-maintenance nature. Whereas natural grass needs to be watered daily, mowed weekly, and regularly cared for, artificial grass will remain green year-round. However, it does still require occasional cleaning and maintenance in order to prevent matting and extend its lifespan. Although it will never turn brown if you neglect it, you should still regularly clean your artificial grass for a variety of reasons.
Prevent Permanent Damage & Matting
The number one reason that homeowners switch to artificial grass landscaping is for the aesthetic benefits. They want a landscaping solution that will remain beautiful and lush during all times of year despite any harsh weather. However, artificial grass needs to be cleaned and brushed occasionally in order to prevent any staining, tearing, or matting. Matted turf blades are a common occurrence, especially in homes that have pets or host events often. Matting can cause your turf to look more artificial and less like full, natural grass. Keeping the blades upright through proper care and maintenance will extend the turf’s overall lifespan and help ensure that it looks as natural as possible.
Remove Pet Odors
If you have dogs around the house, then you know that your lawn can cling on to pet odors and make your backyard an unpleasant place to be. Cleaning your artificial grass regularly by rinsing it down and applying a deodorizer will eliminate any pet odors and leave your lawn fresh and clean. Our proprietary TurFresh BioS+ is a market-leading turf deodorizer that neutralizes pet odors at the source, resulting in long-lasting freshness. It’s non-toxic, all-natural, and completely safe for kids and pets.
Increase Your Lawn’s Lifespan
Artificial grass is an investment, and like all investments, you want to make sure that you get the most for your money and protect that investment. Taking care of your artificial grass by cleaning it on a regular basis will help it last for as long as possible and maintain your increased property value. Synthetic grass should easily last upwards of a decade, so schedule routine cleanings to ensure that you get the most for your money before needing a new installation. TurFresh’s 10-point cleaning process includes more than just re-blooming blades and adding infill; we also tuck any loose edges or seams and perform minor repairs to keep your turf in the best shape possible for as long as possible.
Artificial grass is definitely a far lower maintenance landscaping solution than natural grass. However, it’s still smart to have it periodically cleaned in order to ensure that it looks beautiful and retains its values for as long as possible.
