Proper clean up of stains.
Proper cleaning of stains is important. The key to cleaning up stains is to make the stain a bit harder for dirt and debris to cling to, which will prevent future staining. For this you want to use a solution of water and mild dish soap.
To rid your grass of most stains, treat by pouring a little bit of the liquid onto the carpet/grass then gently scrubbing with a soft brush or sponge, then let it sit for about five minutes before rinsing with water.
Control fungi and molds.
Fungi and mold can be a big problem in grass, especially on artificial grass. To control them use a mixture of bleach and water.
Mix 1 gallon bleach with 1 gallon of water. Make the mixture into a paste or spray and apply it either by hand or sponging it onto the area where you see fungus or mold. Then dry the area out and let it sit for 30 minutes before rinsing with water.
Keep your artificial grass looking fresh.
Artificial grass should always look fresh. The key is to make sure that you are grooming your lawn to prevent it from looking unkempt.
The best way to get your lawn looking its best is to use a lawn oil treatment, which can be sprayed onto the grass and will keep it healthy for longer. Your grass should be evenly watered for at least two hours after applying the oil treatment.
It is good to brush your artificial grass at least once a week to prevent any dead grass from being left behind. This will also help with keeping the artificial grass clean and new. It is best to use a long-handled brush with natural bristle brushes attached, then brush the entire yard if you have an in-ground system or brush your yard along the edges if you have an above ground system.
