GENERAL MAINTENANCE GUIDE
To enjoy the continued enjoyment of your turf surface, it is essential that minimum standards are followed. Your new synthetic grass landscape needs to be maintained on a regular basis in order for it to provide the best possible characteristics over its lifespan. However, the level of upkeep required is minimal, inexpensive and stress-free. This guide outlines instructions in surface protection, stain removal, welcoming pets to their new lawn and our general recommendations for the upkeep of your synthetic grass:
General Surface Care Rules
Use a leaf blower or vacuum to remove debris and/or rubbish then wash down the surface with a hose.
Avoid having heavy machinery and loads on the surface, particularly when wet. This may lead to Pile Crush.
Minor repairs such as splitting seams need to be reported and attended to promptly by an SGNSW installer.
If damage occurs it is highly advisable to contact the SGNSW team so technical advice can be offered for your situation.
A professional service should be undertaken by SGNSW every twelve months.
Your warranty may be void if these General Surface Care Rules are not adhered to.
Fabric softener is a multi-functional and inexpensive additive and can be used to reduce static cling, sanitise the surface to reduce germs and it has been documented to reduce heat related effects. If you choose to adopt this method for ridding the surface of animal urine odour, it must be a diluted solution of fabric softener to water.
Regular drag brushing will help to ensure that the dispersed infill material is redistributed across the surface, thus protecting the fibre against accelerated wear. This is a process undertaken during a professional service with SGNSW.
Maintaining even infill levels will help to ensure the full life expectancy of the surface. It is normal for infill levels to settle within the first few months depending upon usage. We recommend you monitor infill levels in between having the area serviced.
Polyethylene surfaces have good resistance to staining. Some cleaning products are safe to use liberally over the surface but other products can be harmful to particular components of the product composition and so must only be applied by dabbing with a soaked cloth. Here are our top tips for stain removal:
For large areas: A warm mild solution of granular household detergent diluted in 5 litres of water, OR, a neutral low foaming detergent recommended for delicate fabrics diluted in 5 litres of water. These detergent solutions are best used on stains caused by: Tea or Coffee, Alcohol, Milk or Juices, Sauces, Condiments or Food Colourings.
For tough stains: A 3% Ammonia Solution can be applied followed by a thorough hose down of the surface.
pH neutral dry cleaning fluids can be used sparingly with a damp cloth for stains caused by: Asphalt, Ball Point Ink, Shoe Polish, Lipstick, Tanning Products or Oils, Cooking Oil, Floor Wax or Stain.
Do not use Chlorine based bleaches or caustic detergents on your surface as this will cause discolouration.
Fresh spills are always easier to remove than dried or hardened ones. Remove any solids with a plastic spatula and blot up excess liquids with absorbent paper towels.
Chewing gum can be removed by using dry cleaning fluid or by freezing (e.g. Aerosol packs or dry ice).
It is the Customers duty of care to comply by the manufacturer’s instructions for the handling and use of cleaning chemicals.
Welcoming Pets to your new Synthetic Grass Lawn
Synthetic grass is pet-friendly but it is common knowledge that dogs are territorial and so introducing puppies or older dogs to their new lawn may initially require a little extra attention toward your furry friend. The SGNSW team have encountered a wide variety of pets, each with their different mentality and behaviour toward ‘their territory’. SGNSW have installed premium synthetic lawns for RSPCA Dog Boarding Kennels, Luxurious Puppy Schools & Pet Grooming Salons; each with great success and much love from all of the animals. To aid in this smooth transition to the synthetic lawn there are a number of methods, sprays and deterrents to discourage pets from causing any damage.
(i) If dogs are going to ‘pull up’ the synthetic grass it is most likely this will occur from the corners. ‘Dog re-inforced corners' can be installed and may be recommended to you specifically if you are already concerned about your dogs or our representatives feel the works will require the installation of further re-inforcing for the longevity of your surface.
(ii) Sprays are entering the synthetic grass industry, specifically designed as a deterrent for dogs chewing or biting synthetic grass. The pheromone treatments are highly effective for a large variety of dogs, but it may require some trial and error to find the best solution for your pets. Pheromone Sprays should be tested on a small area before applying to the entire surface. Cayenne Pepper is a household dried spice that has also been used as an effective deterrent.
(iii) Pheromone-Treated Yard Stakes are an ideal toilet training tool and a training method that you may wish to implement prior to your lawn installation. The pheromone stake attracts dogs to urinate on it and this will aid toilet training your dog. If you wish to purchase the stake prior to your installation our installers will install the stake for you; however a gentle hammer through the synthetic grass will pierce the stake through the backing and into the subsurface.
(iv) To neutralise animal waste stains or odour a mixture of distilled vinegar with equal amounts of water can be applied. However, you can purchase Spray Concentrates specifically for Odour Elimination at Pet or Hardware Stores.
Inspect ALL seams and note any loose areas. Minor damage can develop quickly into requiring large scale repairs, particularly under heavy use. As such, a casual but daily inspection of the surface and immediate repair of any growing damage is essential.
