Many people think that once artificial turf is installed, it requires no more attention. The truth is that you may not have to mow it, but you do still have to maintain it. The surface can become contaminated and cluttered with leaves, dog waste, dirt, garbage, liquid spills and even weeds. Regular maintenance will keep the turf clean and safe to use.
Scoop up any solid animal droppings and dispose.
Hose down any liquid contaminants with clean water. Where necessary, use detergents or disinfectants that are approved by the turf manufacturer.
Sweep the turf with a grooming tool designed for artificial fields to remove trash, leaves and other clutter. Use a large magnet to remove metallic debris.
