Artificial Turf Maintenance
Keep your yard looking its best with these pro tips from Biltright!
A shop-vac may be used for dry spills. Be sure to hold the suction end of the hose off the surface to avoid removing infill.
Use a leaf blower to remove organic materials from the surface. A soft-tipped rake can be used to remove heavier objects.
If weeds are present, spray area with a weed killer multiple times and on several occasions to make sure the weed is completely dead before pulling it out, with root, if possible.
If the infill is disturbed after a heavy rain, let the area dry, remove the surface debris, and fluff the area to redistribute the surface infill.
Pet Clean Up
To clean away waste and eliminate odors, routinely rinse the areas that your pet uses with water, or a combination of water and natural enzyme based cleaner. Remove solid waste as normal.
Home Putting Greens
For customers who desire a faster speed, we recommend using a water roller weekly.
To prevent tripping hazards, remove flags and
use cup covers. Replacement flags and cup covers are available for purchase through Biltright.
Avoiding Potential Problems
Problems with yard pests such as gophers may require additional barriers.
Spraying water on the turf will make it more comfortable on bare feet and pets on very hot days.
Avoid laying anything hot on the turf, such as leaf blowers, weed trimmers, lit cigarettes, chainsaws, or barbecues. Hot items may damage the turf.
Any reflective surface, including high efficiency windows, can occasionally concentrate the sun’s energy to high heats that may put your turf at risk.
We recommend using ground cover that will not be affected by the very high heat, such as stepping stones, or decorative rocks. It is also possible to deflect the sun through the use of shades, awnings, trees and vegetation.
