How to clean artificial grass
It’s recommended that you clean your artificial grass once a week in Autumn and find time to clean it once a month for the rest of the year.
Here, we will give you four easy steps on how you can clean and make sure your artificial grass looks as fresh as ever.
Brush the grass
Use a broom or a plastic rake to brush your grass and maintain its effect.
Do not use a metal rake or else it might damage your turf.
If someone left some heavy marks on the grass, then brush against the grain and it’ll get a spruced-up look eventually.
To brush your lawn, start in one corner and then work your way across to the side, tackling all the strips.
In other words, pretend that you’re mowing your lawn.
Remove any leaves
Use a leaf blower to get rid of any leaves and debris.
It would be easier to blow it all off into one corner so that then you can collect it at one go using a dustpan and brush.
This helps to prevent any weeds from growing on your turf, and if you have time to do this more than once a month, it is highly recommended.
Use a water-based moss and weed remover that has a pH balance of eight.
Apply it to your areas where weeds and moss that grew and once they die off remove them along with the leaves and debris collected earlier.
Fill in with sand
Scatter some sand across your turf and brush it in using a broom.
Make sure to distribute evenly over your lowan and do not leave any excess.
Leave it for two hours before you walk over the artificial grass again.
Can I clean artificial grass with a vacuum cleaner?
You shouldn’t use a vacuum cleaner over your artificial grass.
A vacuum cleaner can suck in the sand from the grass area and damage your turf.
