Maintenance guide for artificial grass

Maintaining synthetic grass is easy, simple and requires very little effort. It's a real time and energy saver ! All you have to do is brush it occasionally and remove any waste that has settled on it. Maintaining synthetic grass is easy and affordable ! Just follow the guide.

Little or normal use of your artificial grass

Once a year : To raise the fibers and ensure optimum drainage, brush synthetic grass in the opposite direction to the blades. Use a stiff nylon broom, a blower or an electric synthetic grass brush.

2 times a year : Choose a preventive spray treatment and follow the product instructions. For anti-moss treatment, we recommend Dimanin A, Dimanin Special from Bayer or an equivalent. However, never use acid-based liquids (e.g. bleach or sodium hypochlorite). Need more information ? Read our blog article on synthetic grass maintenance.

Intense use of your artificial turf (frequent trampling)

On soft ground : Brush your lawn to straighten the blades as much as necessary.

On hard ground : For small areas, simply use a vacuum cleaner (balcony or terrace).

Snow or ice

If you can, let snow and ice melt naturally. But you may not be able to wait to use your synthetic grass. Follow the instructions below.

Sticky or wet snow

- Remove snow in successive layers. The blade should only skim the surface of the lawn.

- Make sure it doesn't cut through the substrate.

- Finally, remove any remaining snow with a blower.

Powdery snow : Use a brush or blower, in the same direction on each pass

Black ice : 

If the layer is thin : Break it up using a small roller (not too heavy), then sweep up the pieces.

If the layer is thick : You'll need specialized chemicals to remove it quickly. Don't forget to rinse your lawn as soon as the weather permits, to remove chemical residues and keep your lawn in good condition. In all cases : never use calcium chloride, ammonium nitrate, common salt, rock salt or any other corrosive or toxic product.

Animal excrement

Simply clean your synthetic grass with soapy water or water mixed with white vinegar to get rid of unpleasant odours and rinse the area.

Deep cleaning

For thorough dusting, you can clean your synthetic lawn with a low-pressure jet of water and soap. You can also simply wait for it to rain, or use your vacuum cleaner on a balcony or terrace.
