How do you clean artificial grass used by dogs?
Unlike real grass our fake grass for dogs is incredible easy to wash and clean. The design of the grass allows pet urine to drain through the grass and will not cause any damage to the grass fibres or the backing of the grass. The grass colour will also not be affected by the dog’s urine. You will never see any yellow, brown or burnt patches of grass.
Any solid mess should be picked up straight away and disposed of in the normal manner. Any residual left behind can be hosed down with water. Specialist cleaning products are available to buy from other suppliers, however can be expensive, warm soapy water is normally sufficient along with a stiff brush.
For kennels and high traffic dog areas, during warm weather months we would recommend hosing the grass with water regular, this will prevent any urine smells. During wet weather this is not needed since the rain will clean / wash the grass for you.
Is artificial grass safe for dogs?
All of our artificial grasses are safe for dogs and pets. The fibres that make up the grass are non-toxic although we do not recommend they eat it!!
So if you are looking for a surface that is suitable for dogs and pets with the added benefit of being mud free, easy to clean and can be enjoyed all the year round, then artificial grass is for you.
