Your artificial grass lawn is an essential part of your pet’s life, providing a safe and stimulating environment to play and relax. Unfortunately, pet turf can become dirty quickly, and if it’s not properly deep-cleaned and maintained, it can cause health problems for your pet. To keep your pet turf in top condition, it’s important to deep clean it regularly. Here’s a step-by-step guide to deep cleaning your pet turf, so you and your four-legged friend can remain happy and healthy.
1. Collect the necessary supplies
Before you get started cleaning up after your pet, you’ll need to collect all the necessary tools to thoroughly clean your synthetic turf lawn. These include:
A plastic bag or pooper scooper
A garden hose
A mild soap and water solution
A synthetic turf-safe brush
Turf deodorizing spray
Make sure that all of the supplies you’re using are safe for synthetic grass. Use a standard garden hose, not a power washer, and make sure your brush has soft synthetic bristles, never metal. Additionally, make sure any cleaning or deodorizing solutions are safe for turf or specially made for artificial grass applications.
2. Pick up any solid waste
Once you’re prepared for the job, begin by picking up any solid waste on the surface of your turf. This can include dog poop as well as leaves, twigs and other debris.
In addition to matting down your synthetic grass blades over time, solid waste can block your drainage system when it comes time to hose down your lawn, so remove as much visible debris and waste as possible before moving on to the next step.
3. Rinse down your synthetic turf
Once all large debris has been removed, gently hose down your synthetic grass lawn to flush away any liquid waste or small debris caught between the turf blades. If you have any infill in your lawn, avoid using a pressure washer and instead opt only for a standard garden hose.
Rinsing the affected area will dislodge any dirt and debris and help remove bacteria buildup from pet waste. This is a crucial step to eliminating odors and keeping your lawn safe for all members of your family.
4. Spot-clean stubborn areas
If you can still see stains and other marks after rinsing down your lawn, spot clean these areas using a mild soap mixture.
Mix one part soap with one part mild dishwashing liquid and apply it to the affected area. After letting it soak for several minutes, scrub the turf gently in a circular motion with a turf-safe brush. Once the dirt or staining is removed, rinse the area thoroughly and allow it to dry.
5. Disinfect and eliminate odors with turf deodorizer
To prevent and eliminate any odors on your synthetic grass, apply an anti-microbial pet deodorizer spray. These deodorizers will break down the odor-causing ammonia in pet urine and eliminate foul scents at their source.
By stopping bacteria growth before it starts, turf disinfectant will leave your outdoor area smelling fresh for longer. It will also help kill any harmful bacteria and keep your pet turf safe and enjoyable for your pups.
