Debris Removal: Regularly remove leaves, twigs, and other debris using a leaf blower or a plastic rake. This not only keeps your turf looking neat but also prevents organic material from decomposing on the surface, which could encourage weed growth.

Spot Cleaning: Spills should be cleaned promptly. Most spills can be washed away with water, but for stubborn stains, a mild detergent can be used. Avoid harsh chemicals that could damage the turf fibers.

Rinsing: A monthly rinse with a hose will help wash away dust and pollen, keeping your turf fresh and vibrant. This is especially important in drier climates where rain is scarce.

Regular Brushing: Use a stiff, natural bristle broom or a synthetic turf rake to brush the fibers. This should be done every month or more frequently in high-traffic areas. Brushing helps to keep the turf blades standing upright and maintains a natural grass appearance.

Direction of Brushing: Always brush against the grain of the turf fibers. This lifts them up and keeps the turf looking full and plush.


Pet Waste: Remove solid pet waste promptly. Liquid waste can be rinsed off with water, and a mild, natural, enzyme-based cleaner can help neutralize odors.

Periodic Deep Cleaning: For pet owners, a more thorough cleaning every few months can help prevent odors and maintain hygiene. Specialized turf deodorizers and cleaners designed for pet odors can be used.


Weed Prevention: Although rare, weeds can occasionally sprout in artificial turf. Regular brushing and debris removal help prevent weed growth. If weeds do appear, they can usually be easily pulled out by hand.

Moss Control: In damp, shaded areas, moss can sometimes be a problem. If moss appears, it can be treated with a water-based moss killer designed for use on artificial turf.


Static Electricity: In dry areas, static can build up in artificial turf. If this becomes an issue, products are available to reduce static buildup.

Reducing Shine: New artificial turf can sometimes have a slight shine. This usually diminishes over time, but brushing the turf can help reduce the shine more quickly.


Winter Care: Artificial turf is resilient in winter conditions. Snow can be left to melt naturally, or it can be removed with a plastic shovel. Avoid using metal tools that can damage the turf fibers.

Summer Care: Although artificial turf doesn’t get as hot as some surfaces, in extreme heat, it can warm up. A light spray with a hose can help cool the surface.


Annual Inspection: It’s a good idea to have your turf professionally inspected once a year. A professional can spot any issues and provide specific advice for your turf’s condition.

Professional Cleaning: Consider a professional deep clean every year or two, especially in high-traffic or pet areas. This can help extend the life and appearance of your turf.


Furniture and Heavy Objects: Avoid placing heavy objects on your turf for extended periods, as this can flatten the fibers. Use furniture with wide feet or bases to distribute weight evenly.

Avoid Heat Sources: Keep barbecues, fire pits, and other heat sources away from your artificial turf to prevent melting or damage.


Maintaining your Elite Turf is straightforward and requires far less effort than natural grass. By following these simple tips, you can enjoy a beautiful, lush lawn that lasts for years, providing a safe and enjoyable space for family, friends, and pets.
