Understanding TurFresh’s Antimicrobial Turf Cleaning Products

If you are someone with an artificial grass landscape, whether residential or commercial, you are probably looking to keep your synthetic turf fresh. You are in the right place! In visiting our site, you will notice we talk a lot about our TurFresh synthetic grass maintenance products, and you’ve likely seen the terms BioS+ and TurFill mentioned repeatedly throughout. But what are they really, and how do they work? In this blog, we’re giving you a deep dive into our most famous products to help you understand TurFresh’s industry-leading antimicrobial turf cleaning products.

TurFresh BioS+

TurFresh BioS+ is the superstar of the TurFresh product lineup; it’s an as-needed turf deodorizing spray that removes pet odor and leaves your lawn smelling fresh. This all-natural chemical formula utilizes the process of bioaugmentation by bonding to any existing malodorous molecules such as ammonia and changing its molecular make-up. By degrading the bacteria, TurFresh BioS+ eliminates odor at the source rather than merely masking it like other products. This ensures that your lawn stays fresh and clean for as long as possible, and since it’s easy to apply, traces of odor can be eliminated as quickly as they’re detected. Each bottle comes with a BioSiphon sprayer to help you apply the product with maximum efficacy. TurFresh BioS+ is available in fabric scent, lemon scent, and orange scent, as well as a variety of sizes and value packs. TurFresh BioS+ has been proven to provide the most effective long-term odor control in both labs and field applications, so you don’t need to just take our word for it—the science doesn’t lie!

TurFill

Effective synthetic grass maintenance goes beyond the surface. Infill is one of the most crucial elements of protecting your lawn’s quality and longevity. TurFresh’s signature TurFill infill product works both independently as well as in conjunction with TurFresh BioS+ in order to keep your synthetic turf fresh and odorless. TurFill acts like a sponge to absorb and break down the ammonia and other odor-causing bacteria in your turf, eliminating smells at the source rather than covering them up. It helps dry pet messes quickly and proactively keep odor-causing bacteria at bay. To apply TurFill most optimally, evenly spread the infill by hand (or using a drop spreader for commercial applications), applying the most products where your pets most frequently urinate. Then work the TurFill into the thatch using a stiff-bristled brush. TurFill is specially created to fit perfectly between the blades of artificial grass where odor molecules are trapped. All natural, non-toxic, and environmentally friendly, it’s fully safe for kids and pets.

If you want to have a fresh and clean lawn year-round, there’s no better choice than TurFresh’s market-leading antimicrobial artificial turf maintenance products. Our online store has a variety of product sizes and fragrances available to choose from, or you can take advantage of our full-service, 10-point turf maintenance service. We utilize our top-of-the-line proprietary products throughout the process to ensure the most thorough clean possible. To find out more or book an appointment, give us a call today at (855) 444-8873. We also encourage you to visit our online store to purchase TurFresh products for at-home turf maintenance as you need it.

Artificial Turf Cleaning Tips for New Pet Owners

There are few things more exciting than bringing home a new pet. From holding them close on the way home to introducing them to your home for the first time, every step of the process is magical and new. However, that new pet appeal can wear off more quickly than you’d like it to once their bathroom habits are fully revealed. Artificial grass is a great option for pet owners, whether for potty training purposes or puppy playtime. Although synthetic turf is highly durable, you still need quality artificial turf maintenance in order to keep your lawn looking as pristine as it did pre-pup. Luckily, TurFresh has everything you need to keep your lawn in peak condition, so you can maximize the time you spend enjoying your dog and minimize the time you spend cleaning up after it. 

TurFresh BioS+

If you want a foolproof DIY solution that will keep your turf looking and smelling fresh year-round, our proprietary TurFresh BioS+ deodorizing spray is the ideal solution. Our formula was specially formulated to remove pet odor more effectively than other brands; TurFresh Bios+ breaks down the ammonia and proteins in pet urine to eliminate the small altogether rather than just covering it up. This results in a deeper clean and a longer-lasting fresh scent. It’s safe to use around kids and pets, and it can be easily applied as-needed for a quick turf maintenance pick-me-up.

TurFill

Another way to combat pet odors is by replacing your standard infill with pet-approved TurFill. TurFill is an all-natural infill that neutralizes pet urine odor in the same way BioS+ does, eliminating the odor at the source rather than temporarily masking it. It helps dry up pet messes with record speed and stays ready for the next mess. Next time you perform your synthetic turf maintenance, choose TurFill for a pet-proof lawn that will stay fresh, clean, and evergreen.

TurFresh Professional Cleaning Service

If you prefer to leave the artificial turf maintenance to the experts, TurFresh offers professional turf cleaning services for homes throughout the country.

From removing pet hair and unblocking drainage to cleaning the surface and eliminating bacteria, our thorough 10-point turf maintenance process will leave you with one less thing to worry about.

Weed Growth Around Synthetic Turf Edges & What You Can Do About It

Although synthetic turf does not need frequent maintenance, your artificial landscape still benefits from routine maintenance. While weed growth is generally more of an issue for natural grass lawns, it can sometimes grow around the edges of artificial turf. If you do notice weed growth around the edge of your synthetic turf, here’s what you can do to address it. 

Weed growth can occur for a number of reasons whether it be because of erosion or sediment. If your turf edges weren’t cut properly during install, they will not rest effectively against your wood deck, concrete, or other platforms. This contributes to sedimental build-up, and weed growth around the parameters of your synthetic grass landscape. When you first notice weed growth on the edge of your turf, you should call a professional company like TruFresh who can come and examine the issue. TruFresh is a trusted company that gets the job in a comprehensive and complete manner. Upon contacting us, we’ll come over and manually remove the grown weeds. For this situation, we choose to not spray weed killer because it could put children and pets at risk. We’ll perform minor repairs outside the normal seams and edges of your artificial grass to keep your turf in good condition and prevent weed growth from reoccurring any time soon.

These two solutions are just part of our extensive 10-point turf cleaning service that we provide to customers. We tailor our services to best fit the needs of the customer. Our comprehensive service ranges from magnetically sweeping your turf to remove dangerous items like screws, pins, or needles to improving your drainage by using our TurFlush system to flush out contaminants.

If you want your artificial grass to remain in its pristine condition, periodic cleaning can help it retain its aesthetic and functionality. TurFresh provides thorough cleaning and maintenance services for your synthetic turf. Our expert professional team will leave no stone unturned in our quest to make your artificial grass look and feel brand new.

Give Your Artificial Turf A Holiday Makeover

With the holiday season in full swing, now is the perfect time to make your artificial turf and yard look better than ever. Take part in the festivities of the season by decorating and dressing up your synthetic turf. If you’re feeling some seasonal spirit, here’s how you can give your artificial turf a holiday makeover.

Freshen Up Your Artificial Turf With TurFresh

Before you can implement a creative design for your yard, you’ll want to make sure that your synthetic turf is as fresh and clean as it can be. To get the job done in the most efficient manner, you’ll need a company like TurFresh who will make your artificial grass look brand new. TurFresh offers a variety of stellar services that will not only improve your turf’s appearance, but also its condition. TurFresh’s elite professional team can prevent bacteria from growing on your synthetic grass by improving drainage. This will help eliminate odors and foul smells. TurFresh can also help your yard stay clean by removing pet hair, debris, and weeds. TurFresh’s services will make sure that your turf lasts longer and looks better. 

Holiday Designs and Ideas For Your Yard

There are several fun holiday theme designs that you can implement for your yard. A common more simplistic option is hanging and spreading out outdoor lights throughout your yard. If you’re in a Christmas-type mood, you can vary the color of your lights mixing in some red and green in there. Another Christmas-inspired design is using different props like candy canes, sleds, or nutcracker figurines and placing them all around your artificial grass. Another approach a homeowner can take is using the current layout of your yard and the existing structures to create a design. One iconic holiday imagery is of a person snuggled up in a blanket by a fireside that’s been decorated with Christmas trinkets. If you own an outdoor fireplace, you can recreate this feeling outside in your yard by simply decorating its mantle with different ornaments and accessories.

Cleaning & Disinfecting Artificial Grass Sports Fields During COVID-19

As some communities across the United States return to sporting activities during the COVID-19 pandemic, owners of artificial grass sports fields have expressed concerns about how to keep playing surfaces safely maintained for athletes. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has reported that the coronavirus is mainly being spread from person to person, but it is also possible to contract the disease through contact with objects and inanimate surfaces. While scientists and researchers are still learning about the virus, at TurFresh, we are committed to your safety and are here to serve you through the pandemic. 

It’s important to note that disinfectants, detergents, and soaps will only clean an artificial grass field temporarily. It is not a permanent fix, and it will not prevent future transmission of the virus. In order to help you, your sporting community, and loved ones in taking preventative measures to establish clean, fresh, and well-maintained sports fields, here are a few steps we adhere to in our routine cleaning & disinfecting process: 

  • We always use gloves and proper protective equipment 
  • Our turf cleaning professionals respect and adhere to social distancing guidelines 
  • TurFresh’s products scientifically adhere to, breakdown, and eliminate many forms of bacteria, significantly reducing the spread of germs
  • We follow a strict 10-point cleaning service to assist in restoring the freshness & increasing the longevity of your turf field 
  • All coordination of services and payment can be handled remotely, and through social distancing practices, minimizing any potential risk of transmission

As industry leaders in synthetic turf field maintenance for over 20 years, we are here to do our part in assisting our athletes to feel more at peace while they play the field. We also understand that life happens, and people get busy, which is why TurFresh offers a variety of service plans to assist you in cleaning and disinfecting your artificial grass sports field to keep the surface safe for players without the fuss. In addition to maintenance, we will deep clean your field using our proprietary cleaning and deodorizing products, which disinfect by killing bacteria on synthetic grass sports field surfaces.

As we continue to consciously return to everyday activities, while monitoring the latest updates with COVID-19, our TurFresh professionals are available to answer questions regarding best practices for disinfecting your synthetic turf.

How To Clean Your Synthetic Grass Putting Green

One of the benefits of having synthetic grass is that it’s not nearly as demanding as natural grass. With artificial grass, the beauty is that very little maintenance is involved. In order to keep your putting green in optimal shape, some upkeep is required. Here are some tips to ensure your synthetic grass putting green remains beautiful, functional, and in great condition. 

Brush The Green

After removing branches, leaves, and any other visible debris, brush your green to keep the grass blades upright. This step will help ensure that the synthetic turf maintains a quality ball roll. Brushing will also keep the turf performing well after constant foot traffic.

A brush made especially for synthetic turf or a soft rake can be used on your green. Brush carefully to avoid damaging your putting green. 

Rinse and Hose the Turf

Once you’ve removed all trash and visible debris, rinse your artificial turf putting green to help keep debris, pollen, and dust from building up. Rinse your turf once a month to clear out debris between the fine blades of your synthetic turf. There’s no need to use any chemicals.

Use a Power Broom 

Under constant foot traffic, artificial grass blades can start to lie flat and lose their vibrancy. Using a power broom helps fluff artificial grass turf. Power brooms also help keep the grass standing in an upright position. 

Cleanup After Pets

When there’s pet waste on your turf, it’s best to remove it as soon as you see it. Hose and rinse the areas following the cleanup. It’s important to clean after pets regularly to ensure that your synthetic putting grass remains clean and odor-free.

Clean Minor Stains

The key to cleaning minor stains is to act quickly. One of the benefits of synthetic turf is that it’s  stain-resistant, which makes cleaning up after spills easy. Eco-friendly soap or a small amount of vinegar can be used to remove minor spots and mildew on your synthetic grass putting green.

Remove Weeds

While rare, it is possible for weeds to grow through artificial turf. Weeds can sometimes make their way to the surface through cracks, small holes, and around edges. Be sure to remove them as soon as you see them.

Though synthetic turf requires minimal maintenance, it’s still crucial to have it periodically cleaned in order to ensure that it’s beautiful, functional and retains its value for as long as possible. TurFresh offers comprehensive artificial grass cleaning services and maintenance for your synthetic turf putting green. We’ll deep clean your artificial turf and bring it back to like-new quality in no time. If you’d like to DIY, we also offer our proprietary cleaning products and grooming tools on our online store https://turfresh.com/store/.

Artificial Grass Maintenance for Your Commercial Property

One of the many benefits of synthetic grass is that there isn’t much needed in terms of artificial grass maintenance. Unlike natural grass, cleaning artificial grass is simple. There’s no need to water, add fertilizer, or mow it. However, there are still some services and upkeep needed to keep your artificial grass in great shape. At TurFresh, we are a full-spectrum artificial grass cleaning service that serves Los Angeles and the rest of Southern California, as well as Arizona and Nevada, and many locations across the United States. We offer a range of service plans to keep your artificial turf looking beautiful and in top-notch shape for years to come. 

TurFresh Service Plans for High-Traffic Areas

Traffic on the artificial grass of your small, medium, or large business helps determine the type of synthetic grass maintenance that’s right for your landscape’s needs. First impressions are important for your business. Our service plans are customized to make sure that when customers and clients set foot on your artificial turf, it will be clean, fresh, and in excellent condition

Commercial establishments with higher foot traffic, such as dog kennels, and areas with lots of kids, require a different level of maintenance than businesses with lower foot traffic. High traffic, over time, can cause your turf blades to be matted down. Pets also leave behind odors and wastes. With Monthly TurfCare or Bi-Monthly TurfCare from TurFresh, our technicians rebloom your turf blades to ensure that they are standing straight. We also eliminate and protect against all odors, remove debris, pet hair, and any weeds from your artificial grass, among other synthetic turf maintenance services.

TurFresh Service Plans for Low-Traffic Areas

While businesses with lower foot traffic, such as apartment complexes utilizing turf to enhance aesthetics, and may not require as much upkeep, it’s still important to keep artificial grass fresh and in excellent condition by cleaning and eliminating bacteria, removing stains and odors, as well as debris and pet hair.

These and other services are included in Quarterly TurfCare or BiAnnual TurfCare from TurFresh.

Regardless of whether your business experiences high or low foot traffic, your landscape will benefit greatly from one of our TurFresh Service plans.

Synthetic Grass Maintenance Services 

In addition to synthetic turf maintenance, our 10-point artificial turf cleaning service covers everything from artificial turf reblooming and de-compacting infill, to minor repairs, pet hair removal, and other synthetic turf services. TurFresh offers comprehensive, artificial grass maintenance, and cleaning services for commercial properties of all sizes in Southern California, Arizona, and Nevada. We’ll deep clean your artificial turf and bring it back to like-new quality in no time. We back all of our services and products with a 100% guarantee of satisfaction.

Increase Your Artificial Turf’s Lifespan with TurFresh

Many homeowners and commercial properties tend to seek out artificial grass to achieve an environmentally friendly, low-maintenance, ever-green landscape. When you take into consideration the versatility synthetic turf offers, from personalized putting greens, to lush backyards, to non-toxic play areas for kids, or durable kennels for pets, it’s hard to resist the long term synthetic turf solutions. At TurFresh, we have spent over three decades helping people maintain, and get the most out of their synthetic turf. So, if you are considering making the switch to a year-long verdant landscape, here are some things to keep in mind to increase the lifespan of your turf. 

Opt for the Right Artificial Grass Product 

When shopping for artificial turf, you definitely want to go with good quality turf. Going with better quality products in itself allows you to get at least 15 years out of your landscape. Aside from quality, you want to take into account the level of foot traffic your turf will be exposed to. This will allow you to have a better concept of the extent of durability required for your space. 

Work with Professional Installers

You have finally decided upon the perfect turf product for you, and now it’s time to install it. Low-quality turf installations can reduce the lifespan of your artificial landscape by contributing to things like excessive matting, or an increase in dust and debris retention amongst other potential issues. Don’t waste perfectly good turf on a poor installation! Vet your potential turf installer by looking them up, scoping out their reviews and reputation, and level of experience.

Routine Turf Maintenance

Residential and commercial turf may have different maintenance requirements, depending on foot traffic and other environmental factors, however, routine turf maintenance and deep cleaning are a sure fire way to keep your artificial lawn rejuvenated, looking beautiful, and smelling fresh for years to come. Whether you are looking to maintain your lawn on your own, or utilize scheduled maintenance services, TurFresh has you covered. We offer a line of organic, science-based proprietary products that effectively clean your synthetic turf by removing pet odors, feces, saliva, stains, static, and more. If you find yourself dealing with more complicated areas, or would simply like to have one of our turf cleaning experts take care of the work for you, we offer a range of one-off, and recurring maintenance services. Whichever option you require, rest assured in knowing that you will benefit from a comprehensive 10-point cleaning process that includes tucking lifted seams, topping off infill, removing odors, and more! 

By pairing together top artificial grass products, with experienced installers and trusted turf cleaning products and services, you can achieve that long-lasting, enviable landscape and keep it for years to come. For guidance in choosing the right maintenance service, or product for your synthetic turf landscape, give us a call at (855) 444-8873, we are happy to help!

Why Should You Clean Your Artificial Grass?

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. TurFresh offers comprehensive cleaning services for residential and commercial properties of all sizes. We’ll deep clean your turf and bring it back to like-new quality in no time. To find out more about our services or to schedule an appointment, give us a call today at (855) 444-8873. We also offer our proprietary cleaning products and grooming tools for DIY care on our online store. 

Artificial Grass Cleaning Tips for Fall

Autumn can be a tough season for your lawn. It’s likely seen wear as you enjoyed the outdoors during summer, and now harsh weather and falling leaves will add another challenge. If there’s any time of year that you should pay special attention to artificial grass cleaning and maintenance, it’s fall. If your backyard is looking worse for wear, give TurFresh a call for a professional cleaning and follow these maintenance tips to keep your lawn sparkling clean year-round.

Bring Your Turf Blades Back to Life

It’s inevitable that your artificial grass blades will become matted over time. It can take weeks or months depending on how much foot traffic your lawn receives and what type of turf you have installed, but all turf blades will begin to flatten after a while and will require cross-brushing to bring them back to life. In order to preserve your lawn’s fluffy, lush appearance, cross-brush your lawn every few weeks using a rake or broom with synthetic bristles. We advise against using metal bristles, as these can damage the turf. We offer several suitable turf grooming tools through our online store so you can be sure that you’re giving your lawn the best care possible. Maintaining an upright blade position will go a long way in helping your lawn stay as natural-looking as possible all year round.

Spot Clean Any Messes

Whether your home has backyard barbecues or pet playtime, summertime fun can often get messy. If you have any spills or stains, make sure to take care of them right away. Pick up any solids before rinsing the affected area thoroughly. Then gently rinse the area with a mixture of warm water and household detergent. If this doesn’t work, a mixture of water and 3% ammonia solution is also acceptable. After applying the solution to the stain, rinse it again with cold water for the final step. Taking care of spills like this right away will help prevent any permanent staining and preserve the long-term cleanliness of your artificial grass.

Clear Debris Regularly

Autumn leaves are a nuisance for many homeowners. Whether it’s your trees or your neighbors’, most homes will have to contend with dying trees and plants and the resulting debris they’ll leave around your lawn. To keep your artificial grass in top shape, clear this debris as regularly as you can. Leaving it on your lawn for too long can cause your turf blades to become matted, especially if the leaves are repeatedly stepped on, so we recommend clearing your lawn of all leaves and debris at least once a week. Use a comb with synthetic bristles or a very gentle leaf blower to accomplish this most efficiently. Be careful when opting for a leaf blower, however, as high power can disturb your infill if you’re not careful. 

Call the Professionals

If you have stubborn dirt that won’t come out—or if you simply don’t have time to clean your yard yourself–it’s always a good idea to trust artificial grass cleaning professionals. Our 10-point cleaning process covers everything from blade re-blooming to adding infill and from tucking edges to applying deodorizer. We’ll deep clean your yard and make it look sparkling clean, pristine, and ready to enjoy right away.
