One of the hugest advantages of synthetic turf is the fact it involves less maintenance than real turf. But that does not mean there is no maintenance or care at all. To guarantee longevity and good looks, it is important to take small steps to maintain it. Having a few key tools will help make this maintenance simple. Most Huntington Beach home or business owners already have some of these tools around the house. Here are the items we recommend you have handy.
It is vital that you avoid using rakes that have steel points on synthetic grass. These implements will rip the mesh backing and can cause permanent damage to your grass. Plastic rakes should be your go-to for raking up leaves or debris.
A leaf blower can make the task of trash from your lawn even easier! You can use gasoline-powered or electric. However, either battery or corded electric is a cleaner option, and you don’t have to worry about accidentally spilling gas or oil on the ground. Consider getting a leaf blower that has a vacuum option so you can use it like a sweeper, too.

Brushing your turf is an often overlooked task in lawn maintenance. Cross-brushing your lawn will help the individual fibers remain upright and avoid loss of color and matting. Matting occurs from heavy use and can even cause the blades to begin wearing down quicker than expected.
A garden hose will play an important role in keeping the grass looking and performing its best. If you have pets or choose a cooling system for your turf like HydroChill, washing on any spills you might have will keep spots away.
Investing in turf cleaner is a sensible way to keep the grass looking and smelling good. We suggest ClO2 cleaning products. They work from the exterior inward to break down germ walls to disinfect. This product has faster application at lower concentrations, so it won’t leave any dangerous residue.
