How to Keep Your Artificial Playground Turf Clean
Keeping kids safe has always been important, but it’s even more important as we begin returning to a new normal after a global pandemic shut schools and kept kids at home.
We want our kids to be safe and healthy, but also have the freedom to run and play on playgrounds at school or in city parks. Many parks and playgrounds already feature artificial playground turf and surfacing, which can help keep kids safe while also being easy to keep clean.
Here is how you can keep your playgrounds and artificial playground turf clean and safe for everyone.
Cleaning Artificial Playground Turf
Whether you are trying to keep a backyard playground or a city playground clean, many of the steps are similar. No matter where your children are playing, you want to know it’s clean and safe, especially when others may also be joining them in their playtime.
Artificial turf is easy to keep clean. Here are the simple steps involved in the artificial turf care process:
- When the turf is dirty or dingy or has visible stains (as might happen as kids run and play on and around the area), rinsing and cleaning is simple. Just use a hose to remove dirt and debris from the surface.
- If water alone doesn’t do the trick, use a household cleaner or artificial lawn cleaner and a soft scrub brush to clean and sanitize the surface of the turf.
Another option for keeping kids safe on playgrounds is a specially designed infill found in SYNLawn Playground Systems. This antimicrobial infill protects kids from harmful germs and eliminates odors. It works in the long-term to prevent the buildup of microbes on the turf.
