Installation Cost

What can we use for cleaning and rinsing our new Dog Park?

We have a court yard with your pet turf just installed. 9x20. We have 4 dogs and will need to wash and rinse the area. What do you recommend and what would damage the pet turf?

Hi Linda! Thank you for your question. No need to use any chlorinated products, disinfectants, bleach, or high acid or alkaline chemicals on synthetic turf. Just rinse it with water. To neutralize smells, you can use Pet Odor Neutralizer. It's a live liquid enzyme, non-toxic, has over 150 billion microorganisms per gallon and quickly dissolves odors/bacteria. Pre-wet surface; shake the bottle well before use. Attach the nozzle to the water house, and rinse the surface; it dilutes 2 oz per gallon of water.

That's right. Don't use bleach! I have a great Dane and his skin is extremely sensitive. One of the reasons I've got synthetic turf in my backyard.

Just regular vinegar will do the trick as far as cleaning the turf.

You are right, Nathan, vinegar is the best yet cheap way to do the deodorizing and cleaning job on artificial grass!

I use the stuff my installer recommended, a product from Global, called Pet Deodorizer, works well..

If not smelly, just water.

I don't think most dog parks even do anything about it.

I saw people simply use water, not sure if water will get out the smell though.

I haven't done anything to my grass since it installed 5 years ago! Not sure about dog park though.
