By | | 0 comment(s)

Turf is a popular choice for animal care facilities, providing a safe and comfortable environment for animals to play and exercise. However, regular cleaning and maintenance are crucial to ensure the turf remains clean and free of odors. Alpha Tech Pet wants to help ease the turf cleaning process. Here are a few essential tips on how to clean and maintain the turf in your animal care facility, promoting a healthy and hygienic space for your furry guests.

Daily Debris Removal

Regularly removing debris is essential to keep your turf clean and prevent any potential hazards. We make this easy with our Roll & Comb 502 Electric Sweeper. The Roll & Comb 502 sweeper cleans and collects the moss, leaves, pine needles and other debris from the artificial grass while combing and elevating the grass fibers. Conduct a daily sweep with our power broom to remove debris. This not only improves the appearance of the turf but also helps maintain its integrity and prevents any potential damage that debris may cause over time.For an extra thorough clean, you could also use our Roll & Comb 141 Electric Power Broom. This power brush helps clean the leaves, pine needles and other debris from the lawn while fluffing-up and brushing up the turf fibers. While the 141 power broom does not pick up debris, it does fluff up turf and remove leaves, twigs, acorns, and dog hair away from any fence line, corner or smaller spaces the 502 machine cannot reach.

Spot Cleaning

Accidents happen, and it's important to address them promptly to maintain a clean turf. For any urine or feces spots, remove solid waste with a scoop or plastic bag and blot up any excess liquid using absorbent materials. Rinse the area thoroughly with water and use a mild, pet-friendly disinfectant, such as Wysiwash to sanitize the spot. This will help eliminate any odors and prevent the growth of bacteria or fungi.

Regular Deep Cleaning

In addition to daily maintenance, regular deep cleaning is necessary to ensure a thorough and hygienic turf surface. Use a turf cleaning solution or enzyme cleaner specifically designed for artificial grass. Dilute the cleaner as directed and apply it to the turf using a sprayer. Scrub the surface gently with a soft-bristled brush to remove any embedded dirt or stains. Rinse thoroughly with water, and allow the turf to dry completely before allowing animals back onto the surface.

Odor Control

Managing odors is crucial in an animal care facility. To control and eliminate odors from the turf, consider using a pet-safe deodorizer or odor-neutralizing product specifically formulated for artificial grass. Apply the product as directed, ensuring even coverage across the turf. This will help keep the facility smelling fresh and clean, enhancing the experience for both animals and visitors.

Regular Inspections and Maintenance

Regular inspections and maintenance are key to identifying any issues with the turf and addressing them promptly. Check for signs of wear, loose seams, or damaged areas that may require repair or replacement. Keep an eye out for excessive matting or compacted areas and use a soft-bristled brush to fluff up the turf fibers. Additionally, ensure that the infill material is evenly distributed and top it up as needed. By conducting routine inspections and maintenance, you can prolong the lifespan of your turf and ensure a clean and safe environment for the animals in your care.

Maintaining a clean turf in your animal care facility is essential for the health and well-being of the animals and the overall appearance of your facility. By following these essential tips and investing in our Roll & Comb 502 Electric Sweeper and Roll & Comb 141 Electric Power Broom you can ensure a hygienic and inviting turf surface that provides a safe and comfortable environment for your furry guests.
