Best way to clean your artificial grass in 2022

This post contains my latest research and methods on how to best clean an artificial grass lawn to rid it of bad smells and odours and to thoroughly clean the grass fibres.

It is a follow up post to the best way to remove odour from artificial grass in 2021.

I have again been testing and modifying my methods to come up with the simplest, most effective way of cleaning artificial grass.

I am so excited with my latest method that I have linked up with a new company, The Artificial Grass Cleaning Company Ltd to provide this exclusive service. Here is a sample of what the cleaning service offers.

Take your dirty, dull flattened lawn

This method requires no infill in the lawn like Zeofil. From my testing so far if you use this service a couple of times a year along with some basic maintenance on a monthly basis your lawn will look and smell great.

  1. Hi, just reading your reply from the person above regarding, how to get rid of smell of dog wee on artificial grass.
    1. Do you recommend PU backed grass?
    2. What do you actually recommend for getting rid of the smell for grass you have had laid already?

    We have just had some laid about 2 months ago and it has now started to smell, we were told that it wouldn’t smell with what they laid underneath it!
    I have read that bicarbonate of soda and vinegar will get rid of the smell?

    Many thanks

    • Hi there , we only have Pu backed grass now , it costs slightly more to manufacture but it opens the door to dog owner to our full range , rather than just one product . I wouldn’t fit anything else if you had a dog now anyway , it acts like a lino, so can easily be washed through and cleaned. Unfortunately there isn’t too much you can do when the smell is already in the product, however trying to extract as much you can by using disinfectant etc will help. The backing issue gets worse because it is always damp and gets warm in the sun , which causes the smell to be emitted , it may be worth folding the grass over and drying the backing , then once you have done this add an infill into the pile like zeofil which will then protect the latex from getting soaked with urine again.regards

  2. Hi could you please possibly advise the best cleaner to use on my artificial grass that is dog freindly.

    • Hi there fellow sufferer! Don’t believe anything you read online about cleaners and special systems under the grass to get rid of the smell. I have used and tried everything and can tell you the smell is based in one place and that is the latex backing. If you have latex you will not remove the smell from it once it has been absorbed, whatever the size of your dog. We introduced new PU backed grass over 2 years ago and it really does solve this issue, the PU is non absorbent, therefore it is easy to clean, it works like a lino floor. There are products out there that work like cat litter, and absorb the ammonia in the urine, these need to be added to the top pile and brushed in. We used to have fine sand that did this however it stops the grass being properly cleaned and so we no longer sell this as it is not needed on PU backed grass. There are still products online, one is made from a mineral call zeolite, however I was not overly impressed with this product. The more cleaners you try and use with a latex backed grass the worse the smell becomes. Regards
