Families with children or pets buying artificial grass tend to ask the question: Is artificial turf antimicrobial? In fact, bacteria can be found on almost any surface, including natural grass and artificial turf. But don’t worry, about 80% of bacteria are generally harmless to humans.
It’s important to note that when standing water and pet waste sits on the lawn surface for a long time, bacteria can multiply, causing problems such as odor, discoloration, corrosion and increasing the risk of infection.
Therefore, in order to create a safe and clean turf surface, routine maintenance and choosing the right products to avoid bacterial growth are critical.
Steps to clean artificial turf regularly include:
- Use a grass brush or a bristle broom to remove debris from the lawn.
- Your turf is flushed every time it rains, but it can be helpful to give it a hose rinse from time to time, especially during periods of low rainfall. This can help remove dust, pollen and grime from the surface.
- For areas that a simple rinse cannot clean completely, just mix warm water with a household cleaner, sponge and rinse.
- Brush it every now to make your artificial grass look lush and attractive.
