Taking care of artificial turf is a breeze, and one important step when it comes to keeping your artificial grass looking pristine is to deal with any spills or stains quickly. For artificial grass used in residential
areas, quick action is important in preventing the staining of artificial grass. Make sure to blot up any accidental spills with a clean and dry cloth as soon as possible for the best possible results.
If the spill is oil-based, use a mild detergent and warm water to remove it.
Spillages on artificial turf can be easily taken care of, but there are a few things to keep in mind. Oil-based spills should be tackled with a mild detergent and warm water before beginning any further treatment. Allowing the detergent to settle for a few hours after you've applied it will give it time to gently remove the stain and also help prevent any future damage that could potentially arise. After all the liquid has been removed, dry thoroughly by wiping down with a soft absorbent cloth or towel. When cleaning up oil-based spills be sure to take special caution and always wear protective gloves!
If the spill is food-based, use a vinegar and water solution to remove it.
Taking care of food spills quickly is essential to ensuring that your artificial turf maintains its clean, fresh look. When you have a food-based spill, your best bet is to mix white vinegar and water in a 50-50 solution and use it to blot the spill area. If needed, lightly scrub the stain with a nonabrasive cloth or soft brush until the area is cleaned and the stain is removed. This simple yet effective action can help prevent further damage or staining of your artificial turf.
If the stain is stubborn, you may need to use a power washer on the affected area.
If a regular clean up isn't getting rid of the stain from your artificial turf, don’t despair–a power washer can help. Utilizing a pressure of 12-15 lbs per square inch, which is typically found in consumer models, will provide enough force to blast away any stubborn remains. Before using the power washer, it’s important to ensure that you have correctly set the blend for the cleaning solution and water as indicated in the manual. To prevent damage or discoloration of the turf, make sure to keep the pressure on an even level and avoid setting it too high!
Let the area dry completely before using it again.
After dealing with a stain or spillage, be sure to let the artificial turf dry completely before using it again. This is important as moisture can cause a buildup of bacteria and mold in artificial turf. Failing to allow the area to dry sufficiently could lead to further mess and damage, so it's essential that you create enough time for drying, even if you are pressed for time. You'll be thankful for taking this extra precaution when your artificial turf remains in pristine condition even after a spill.
By following the steps above, you should be able to remove most stains and spills from your artificial turf. If the stain is stubborn or you can’t seem to get rid of it, you may need to power wash the affected area. Let the area dry completely before using it again.
