Artificial Turf and Dog Urine
Yes, does can go to the bathroom on artificial grass. In fact, artificial grass is ideal for dogs and other pets. In regards to urine and waste, our synthetic grass system is not much different from natural grass. With our ProFlow technology, urine washes straight through the artificial turf into the drainage blanket or the specially formulated crushed rock sub-base. This drainage system is vital for your artificial grass to be pet friendly. Without a proper base or turf that is not permeable, you will be left with a myriad of pungent problems. As for the solid pet waste, it can be removed using your current process, only it tends to be easier and less messy with the artificial grass.
We have installed our artificial grass in pet boarding facilities all over the country, where hundreds of dogs use it as a bathroom. There is no question that our pet turf would perfect for your home as well.
How Do You Clean Artificial Grass?
Rain is usually sufficient to clean artificial grass, but you can spray your turf with a hose if you feel it is necessary or if it hasn’t rained in a long time.
How do you get rid of pet odors on artificial grass?
With our patent-pending ProFlow technology, you won’t have to worry about urine pooling on your artificial grass, which is the primary cause of odor. This is because the entire backing of our pet turf is able to drain, unlike traditional turf where urine has to find the perforations in the backing. Typically, rain will be enough to wash away the odor of urine from turf. Another cause of odor happens because of sand infill, which absorbs all types of liquid. The solution to this is to use our standard infill, which reduces pet urine odors from artificial grass because it is antimicrobial and limits the amount of moisture absorbed.
