Cleaning Artificial Turf on Patios and Balconies

If you’ve been using your artificial turf balcony or patio as a hideaway or for entertaining, there’s a good chance you’ve had some spills and stains. Cleaning artificial grass is a crucial aspect of maintaining a clean and tidy house, and cleaning grass on a patio or balcony is no different. We’ll show you how to care for your turf balcony or patio so you can enjoy it for years to come as the providers of top-quality grass at low costs.

Tools for Cleaning Turf

Cleaning artificial turf on your balcony or patio is comparable to cleaning turf lawns and indoor turf. When cleaning artificial turf, the following equipment is useful to have on hand:

  1. Air blower or rake (a blower for larger surfaces)
  2. Non-metallic stiff broom or brush
  3. Spray bottle, hose, and/or bucket
  4. Commercial lawn cleaning solution, or a DIY cleaning solution of equal parts water and vinegar or soapy water
  5. Paper Towels

Spot an old stain on your turf?

Spills and mishaps happen when we’re not looking, and finding them hours, days, or even weeks later may be a huge shock. Spills and messes that go unnoticed and are left for a long time might be more difficult to clean up. Blood, coffee, and alcohol, for example, are more difficult to remove. Although turf is stain-resistant, it is necessary to wipe up any spills for sanitary reasons.

  1. Mix a light detergent, such as dish soap, with water in a bucket.
  2. Use a professional grass cleaner or a mix of equal parts water and vinegar.
  3. Rub it into the area with a sponge or gentle cloth until it disappears.
  4. As required, rinse and repeat.
  5. Allow to air dry after patting dry.

Have sticky residue that’s resistant to water?

Use a toothbrush if the stain is really stubborn. If you have a sticky problem, putty knives are a great tool for removing them, or you may use ice to freeze the area and remove the stain.
