Tips for Cleaning Common Messes on Your Artificial Turf

Artificial turf is the best turf type and ground covering that you can choose to install at home or your business because these wonderful lawn solutions offer so many great benefits. It is great to have a lawn that stays perfectly green throughout the year even though you never water, mow or fertilise it. The only maintenance you ever have to do on these lawns is to give them an occasional clean.

Over time, your lawn is exposed to all sorts of natural elements and people and pets tend to make all sorts of spills on these turfs. In this guide, we are going to share some of the best tips for cleaning different types of messes on your turf so your lawn will look fresh and vibrant for many years to come. 

How to Clear Off Grease/Cooking Oil

Your lawn is the perfect spot to host fun BBQ parties but with many of these types of activities, cooking oil or grease spills are bound to happen at one point or another. Here is a quick look at the best steps for removing these spills from your lawn. 

  • Grab a paper towel or rag and blot at the area so you can absorb as much grease from the outdoor turf as you can.
  • Create a mixture of dishwashing detergent or baby shampoo and some hot water. Add the mixture to a spray bottle and treat the area.
  • Let the spray soak for about 5 minutes and blot the area again using your towel.
  • Use PTerminator® enzyme spray to kill the smell if required.
  • Allow the area to dry completely before walking on your lawn again. 

How to Clear Off Wine Spills

Wine spills are not the worst spills on artificial turf because most of the moisture will simply drain away through the carpet. But these spills can sometimes leave behind a sticky residue that you can clear with the following steps. 

  • Grab a rag and soak the stain using clean cold water.
  • Apply a bit of diluted vinegar and water to remove any remaining color or stickiness that might be lingering.
  • After that, you can rinse the area and let it dry. 

How to Clear Off Sauces/Dressings

Sauces and salad dressing spills usually leave behind quite a sticky mess. It is best to clear up these stains immediately because the product will bake hard and become even stickier as the sun bakes it. Here are the steps for clearing these messes.

  • Simply blot the area with a paper towel and absorb as much of the product as you can.
  • Create a mixture of baking soda and water and apply the paste to the stain.
  • Allow the mixture to sit for a minute.
  • You can now use clean water to rinse the mixture from the grass. 

How to Clear Off Chewing Gum

Chewing gum can be tricky to remove from any type of surface. Here are the best steps for clearing this sticky mess quickly.

  • Place ice cubes on the spot and leave these ice cubes for about 10 minutes.
  • Once the ice cubes made the gum brittle and hard, you can pick it off.
  • Take a butter knife and scrape any remaining gum off your lawn.

How to Clear Off Dog Urine
