Many people prefer to get artificial grass installed indoors and outdoors as it does not require too much maintenance and the cost of keeping it look good is minimal which is something that cannot be said about a real grass turf. Artificial grass is made up of synthetic material but just because it is not alive does not mean that you can leave it be, you need to do proper cleaning from time to time.
Whilst cleaning the synthetic grass, there are a couple of things that you need to pay attention to which is why we will be giving out tips for keeping your turf looking pristine.
Leaves And Fragments
If you have installed the grass outdoors then you would need to clean up leaves and debris. The frequency with which you clean up leaves depends upon the number of trees in your lawn and the season. It is important to remember to only use tools like rakes, brooms or leaf blowers and avoid any tool that has sharp metal edges as that will tear out the grass. In order to clean off debris, you can use a brush with hard bristles.
The great thing about artificial grass is that it cannot be permanently stained so if you have stains on your indoor turf then you just need to clean it up with a rag soaked in soapy water. If the stains are of oil then you need to use mineral spirits or a mild detergent with no bleach would work too. For artificial grass outdoors, you can simply remove the stains with a hose that has a pressure spray tip attached. If gum is stuck somewhere, simply rub ice cubes over it till it hardens and separates from the spot easily.
