Deep cleaning for artificial grass and turf: the lowdown on artificial lawns

Properly maintained artificial grass with sand or rubber infill provides a durable and safe playing surface for sports and can be used in domestic landscaping. While some people skimp on infill to reduce costs, the infill layer helps to keep the artificial turf in place, protects the fibres and backing, improves drainage and reduces the shock and impact on players' joints.

Whether you are a sports club manager, run a school, university, leisure centre or local authority sports pitch, or if you are a homeowner with an artificial grass lawn or sports pitch, regular maintenance should be carried out on your artificial turf to ensure you protect your investment in the long term. Work such as brushing and drag brushing to redistribute the infill, sand or rubber crumb top-ups and deep cleaning should be carried out on at least an annual basis, ideally at the start of the playing season and in dry conditions. It may be necessary for this to happen more often, depending on use, the surrounding area, environmental factors and existing condition.

How to keep artificial grass clean

Deep cleaning will delay the amount of time before an artificial court needs repairs, rejuvenation or even replacement. Specialist machinery is used to de-compact, remove and clean the layer of infill before it is returned to the surface of the pitch. During this process, you can check the seams and joints of the pitch, and conduct any repairs to the carpet and lines if needed.

However, the machinery required is expensive and requires expert use. A maintenance package that includes deep cleaning is often the best way to ensure your artificial grass surface remains in the best condition in terms of safety, accuracy and appearance for all types of use.
