Remove debris such as leaves and branches from the surface using a leaf blower or a plastic rake. Do not use a rake with metal or wire bristles on the turf—this can tear the fibers. Occasionally use a stiff broom brush to rake the fibers against the grain, paying attention to high traffic areas.
In areas where rainfall is scarce, you may lightly spray Xtreme Lawn occasionally to help flush debris, allergens and other airborne buildup that might accumulate on the turf.
SPILLS AND STAINS
If you spill sticky or staining substances on your turf, clean the area
promptly. You may use a mop with a diluted mild detergent. Do not use cleaners
that contain chlorine bleaches or highly acidic cleansers. Rinse area thoroughly
following mopping with clean water to remove soap residue.
- Oil-based stains (motor oil and grease, cooking oil, suntan oil): Use a grease spot remover (perchlorethylene, dry cleaning solution).
- Sticky substances (chewing gum, tree sap, etc.): Use a dry cleaning fluid as mentioned above, or remove by freezing.
SNOW AND ICE
Allow snow and ice to melt and drain naturally through the artificial grass. Do not try to break the ice or use a shovel on the turf as this can break the frozen grass fibers or turf backing.
Although Xtreme Lawn is flame resistant, flames or sparks can fuse the fibers
together and harm the turf. Be careful when lighting fireworks, barbecuing
or smoking near your Xtreme Lawn.
