How to Clean Artificial Grass on Roof Decks

(Posted on May 11, 2020 at 06:37PM by Lorenzo Cavalletti)

Transforming your rooftop deck to a luxurious deck turf raised pedestal system is a fashion forward, environmentally sustainable, great investment and exciting decision with many long term benefits. Having material of this quality installed on your deck will give you the piece of mind knowing that you have chosen a trusted home improvement upgrade that will last many years. One of the many benefits of having an artificial grass installation is the low maintenance upkeep the “yard” requires. No more expensive watering, mowing, chemically treating or fertilizing. However, to keep your turf deck looking pristine, there are a few general rules of cleaning and maintenance that should be followed.

  1. Weekly Regular Maintenance. 

Although serious lawn work is not required of artificial grass, a little work will always go a long way. A simple weekly upkeep will extend the life span of your deck and have your guests pleasantly surprised with the pristine condition of the outdoor patio. A few weekly things you could do to keep tidy are, a light hose down of the turf, removal of leaves and debri, and just your average, to be expected, cleanup of pets and children.

  1. Monthly Maintenance. 

About every 30 days, is a great time to get back out and give your artificial grass a little revamp. A proper routine cleanup takes little effort and will protect your investment, impress your house guests and give you a serene oasis to relax and unwind. A couple actions you can take are grooming the turf blades with a brush to remain pointed in the correct direction, a deeper cleanup of all debri and an in depth removal of stains and residue.

  1. Remove Pet Waste.

Often families living in an urban downtown building, see this turf decking as an opportunity to turn their terrace into a trusted and convenient place for the family dog to use the bathroom. This is an innovative and modern idea that many families are using. There are a couple key points to maintaining the beauty of your artificial grass while letting the dogs share the turf as well. Pick up the poop immediately after your dog does the deed to prevent drying. Spray down the deck with water regularly to keep a flow of the drainage. Use chemical products or a vinegar mixture if smell becomes an issue.


In closing, your duty to upkeep your deck turf raised pedestal system is necessary but also simplistic. A light routine of keeping tidy, removing debri, brushing the blades, and removing pet waste will have you good as gold.
