Congratulations! So you’ve finally gotten that dream balcony you’ve always wanted, with its rich beautifully coloured natural wood decking (i.e. our Heveatech deck), and that lush green floor (i.e. our zSNAP.TURF).
Now how do you maintain your balcony, especially your artificial turf area?
Here’s some tips to help you out:
How should I maintain my artificial turf?
For daily/weekly maintenance, you only really need to lightly sweep or vacuum your turf to remove dust, dirt, leaves and other debris.
If you’re sweeping, use a flexible lawn rake, a broom with stiff bristles or a stiff brush. If you choose to use a stiff brush, make sure you do not choose one with steel bristles, which could damage the turf.
If you are vacuuming, make sure the power/strength is on a low level.
Once a week, you might also like to lightly rinse down your artificial turf. Spraying down the grass fibers with a hose will remove dust and other small debris that has accumulated between washings.
My turf seems a little flatter now. How do I groom it?
Your grass may not be erect in certain areas after you, a family member or pet has lain on it for a certain period of time.
This is easy to fix by simply grooming your lawn by using a broom or handled brush to brush against the natural grain to encourage each blade of artificial grass to stand up properly.
Regular grooming also prevents matting.
How do I remove pet waste from my artificial turf?
zSNAP.TURF is a pet-friendly option, and pet owners can rest assured that little additional maintenance is required to keep their lawns looking great.
To remove pet droppings from grass, simply use your preferred method for removing solid pet waste, i.e. using a plastic bag or a pooper scooper for example. After you have removed the solid waste, hose down the area in which the pet waste was located.
To clean pet urine on artificial grass, use a hose to spray down the area at least one time each week.
