Artificial Turf Care Guide

A well-structured care and maintenance program enhances your turf's aging, functionality, and aesthetic appeal.

01.  Keep it clean

Dust, Pollen, and Airborne Pollutants: 

  • Rainfall is the best cleaner. In arid regions, occasionally flush the turf with water.
  • For light soiling, sponge mop with a 5% low-sudsing detergent solution followed by thorough rinsing. Rinse out with hot water.
  • For heavy soiling, repeat the procedure for light soiling, followed by sponge mopping with a 3% household ammonia solution. Rinse out with hot water. 
      Stains and Blemishes: 
      • Act promptly to clean fresh spills; it’s easier than cleaning dried ones. 
      • Remove solid residues with a spatula or knife.
      • Blot up excess liquids using paper towels, a clean cloth, or absorbents like kitty litter.
      • Synthetic fibers resist staining, but only specific cleaning agents are safe for the turf system. 
      Safe Cleaners (Can be applied directly on the turf): – Bio-friendly cleaner (follow manufacturer’s instructions). – Warm, Mild solution of granular household detergent or low-sudsing detergent for fine fabrics (approx. 1 tsp per pint of water). – 3% ammonia 
      solution in water for stubborn stains. This will handle most waterborne stains including: Coffee, tea, vegetable juice, fruit juices, alcohol, soft drinks, ice cream, chocolate, milk, ketchup, mustard, urine, latex paint, butter, dye, glue, water colors and blood. 
      Caution: Do not use cleaners with chlorine bleaches, caustic cleaners (pH > 9), or highly acidic cleansers (pH < 5). 
      Cleaners to be Applied Sparingly (To avoid penetrating beneath the turf): – Mineral spirits or grease spot removers (e.g., perchlorethylene) available at variety stores. In general, cleansers in this category should handle most oil-based stains including: 
      Asphalt, Tar, Gum, Cooking Oil, Shoe Polish, Floor Wax, Lipstick, Motor Oil, Grease, Paraffin Wax, Ballpoint Ink, Nail Polish, Suntan Oil, Crayon. 
      Note: Mineral spirits and similar solvents are flammable – avoid open flames. 

      02.  Periodic brushing

      • Matting in high foot traffic areas can occur due to dirt and pollutants. 
      • Cross brushing” against the grain of the fibers restores the turf’s appearance. 
      • Use a brush with synthetic bristles; avoid metal or wire bristles that may damage the fibers. 

      03.  Do not abuse

      • Keep lit cigarettes, fireworks, and open flames away from the turf.
      • Avoid placing sharp-edged furniture or equipment on the turf to prevent punctures or tears.
      • Use multiple layers of plywood under heavy equipment to distribute weight evenly.
      • Never leave a parked vehicle idling on the turf.
      • Cap off or remove nearby sprinkler heads to prevent mineral deposits from water.
      • Prevent exposure to sunlight reflected from windows or reflective surfaces to avoid fiber melting. 

      04.  Report any minor problem

      Promptly report any problems to the manufacturer, as minor issues can escalate.
