You’ve installed your turf and you love the way it looks. Your job is done here, right? Not so fast.
Artificial turf is magnificent, but it isn’t magic. To make your investment last, you’ll need to maintain your turf.
Here’s how to do it right.
Stop sweating the small stuff
You can’t see them, but you know they’re there. Germs. Artificial turf provides the ideal conditions for bacteria and viruses to thrive—that is, if you don’t clean your turf regularly with OxyTurf!
When kids or pets play on artificial grass (or when someone drops a sandwich, spills a soda, or just tracks general grossness across high-traffic areas), harmful and odor causing germs can take up residence and start to grow on the spot.
Use a proven synthetic turf cleaner like OxyTurf to spray down the area and make sure that germs don’t get in the way of your good times.
Say “adios” to odors
Today’s artificial turf looks and acts just like real grass—for the most part. But because it’s a woven synthetic, residue from liquids, pet hair, and animal droppings can become trapped in the material and start to stink.
Spraying your turf with water helps, but it doesn’t do the same job of annihilating odor as a proven cleaner-deodorizer designed specifically for use on artificial grass.
OxyTurf synthetic turf cleaner eliminates germs and bacteria, replacing their creepy odors with a light, clean scent of Fresh Real Grass that is derived from a biodegradable formula.
No bleach? No ammonia?
It’s a no-brainer.
Other artificial turf cleaners use harsh chemicals like bleach and ammonia to kill germs. Sure, they might blast those little biological critters, but those formulas leave behind all kinds of residues that can irritate skin, weaken your turf, and end up smelling like a laboratory.
Not great if you have kids, pets, or quirky neighbors who love to roll around on your synthetic lawn. OxyTurf is different because our formula contains stabilized accelerated hydrogen peroxide and not brutal substances that emit weird mystery smells.
With a single step, OxyTurf eliminates odor causing bacteria using biodegradable cleaning agents that are safe for humans, animals and plants.
How to clean artificial turf using OxyTurf
OxyTurf can be used as a spot cleaner for one-off messes and as ongoing protection against germs lodging themselves in your artificial turf.
For Single Use:
• Use the hand-held spray bottle, battery powered sprayer, or backpack sprayer to douse the affected area
• Wait 10 minutes for OxyTurf to penetrate the turf and soak into the base.
Got questions? Let’s talk turf.
Does my turf really need upkeep or maintenance?
It sure does. Turf is commonly sold as a “set it and forget it” product which is too bad because it’s not totally accurate. Synthetic turf requires periodic brushing, decompaction, de-weeding, re-sanding, and deep cleansing—especially if your kids or pets are running around on it.
What types of bacteria or viruses can grow or cultivate on the turf?
Studies involved show the survival of Staph, MRSA, and E.coli in turf, to name a few.
What happens to my pets’ urine and droppings?
Yes, you don’t wash down your turf regularly. Use an anti-bacterial, odor-eliminating cleanser like OxyTurf to knock out odors without exposing your kids or pets to harsh chemicals.
Does turf mold or mildew?
Yes, both mold and mildew can grow on and underneath turf. OxyTurf neutralizes mold and mildew using a non-toxic formula made from biodegradable ingredients.
