STI Florida prides itself off the fact that we proudly offer turf applications that are virtually maintenance free. With that being said, there are still a few things one can do to ensure and extend the appearance and lifespan of your turf application. One easy and simple way you can do so is by thoroughly cleaning your turf. Water-borne stains, fungus, mold spots, and moss could all be the potential result of not adequately cleaning your turf.
If your synthetic turf is displaying water-borne stains, a mild soap will do the trick. Be sure to use a mild soap with a PH level between 6.7-7.3 and scrub the stained area with a stiff fiber brush. Once you have completed scrubbing the area make sure to rinse the affected area thoroughly.
Common outdoor stains that appear on synthetic turf applications include but are not limited to the following: fungus, mold spots, and moss. If your turf appears to be exhibiting bacterial growth, Simple Green, is a simple and effective product that can be used to clean the affected areas. Please note that when using any products on your turf, it is incredibly important to make sure the product contains a bleach free formula.
