Proper Maintenance Depending on Your Circumstances
The amount of maintenance you require for your artificial grass completely depends on your circumstances. If you live in an area with a lot of dust and regular rainfall or maybe high pollen counts, or if you have children, pets, or a lot of other landscaping like trees and shrubbery, you will have to care more about the right maintenance than if you do not have any of this.

Quick Spot Cleaning Tip:
If you keep a conventional monthly or weekly cleaning schedule, your yard will always stay in the best condition. However, there are times when there are some difficult spills and stains that may appear during regular use.
Here is a guide on proper cleaning and removing for such stains.
Beverage and food Spills:
If you have installed an outdoor kitchen or enjoy hosting different barbecues, you may find yourself with various food or beverage stains on your lawns regularly. Artificial grass Surrey Hillsis mostly stain-resistant, however, at times food spills will leave an awful residue that requires a little extra care. So if in case you’ve spilled food or drinks on your lawn, a little elbow grease with a gentle cleaner will take care of the stain right away.
You need to always remember this factor when removing stains, never use a corrosive chemical cleaner. Cleaners containing chlorine bleach or caustic cleaners (with a PH above 9 or acidic cleaners with a PH below 5) can erode the grass blades and fade the coloring. Plus these cleaners are not just right for the environment. So make sure you are only using natural and mild cleaning solutions to clean your food and beverage stains.

Bacteria And Mold Removal:

Prevention from Burns:
Your artificial grass can be damaged by burns other than spills and stains. Burns can happen when your grass has been directly exposed to fire. Fire pots, candles, cigarettes and grills can all lead to burns. So to prevent all of these, simply make sure that you keep all sources of fire away from your artificial grass. Avoid smoking or lighting of fireworks especially in your yard. Then anywhere you are having a fire source like a grill, fire pit, torches, or even citronella candles, make sure they are on large paved patio surfaces, that way there is very little chance for sparks or embers from the flame landing on your grass causing a burn.
