Updated: 5 days ago

Your synthetic turf is an investment in both beauty and functionality. With thousands of hours of use and numerous athletes on it, proper maintenance is crucial to ensure it stays in top condition for years to come. Here are the top ten things synthetic turf maintenance essentials you should be doing today to keep your turf looking and performing its best:

1. Review Your Warranty:

  • Familiarize yourself with the terms of your synthetic turf warranty. Knowing what is covered can help you make informed decisions about maintenance and avoid voiding the warranty. 

2. Regular Brushing:

  • Keep the blades upright and prevent matting by brushing your turf regularly. This ensures optimal performance for athletes and ball interaction. Use a static brush or consider a friction sweeper to keep the fibers upright.

3. Check Infill Depths Regularly:

  • Ensure the infill is at the correct depth for optimal performance and safety. Regularly check high-use areas to prevent premature wear. Use a depth gauge to measure and add infill as needed.

4. Redistribute Infill:

  • Over time, infill can shift and compact. Using grooming equipment, ensure that infill is spread evenly across the turf. Consistency across the field creates a safe and predictable playing surface.

5. Clean Up Debris:

  • Remove leaves, twigs, and other debris that can accumulate on the surface. Debris can break down into organic matter, making your surface firm and prone to vegetation growth. Consider using the Sportsweeper by FOD Control for effective debris removal.

6. Check for Contaminants:

  • Regularly inspect your turf for contaminants, especially in areas prone to runoff and high traffic. Clean these areas promptly to maintain a safe surface and avoid compaction and drainage issues.

7. Inspect Seams and Edges:

  • Regularly check the seams and edges of your turf for signs of wear or separation. Address any issues promptly to prevent further damage. Keep an emergency repair kit handy for quick fixes.
