Synthetic Grass and Dog Urine – How to Get Rid of the Smell
The great thing about synthetic grass is that it always looks green. Also, you have to do very little to maintain it. Usually, we tend to assume that if the artificial turf is outdoors, Mother Nature will take care of both cleaning and deodorizing, but the reality is that when it comes to synthetic grass and dog urine, though, you might need to expend a little bit more effort to keep it smelling good.
You can buy a commercial deodorizer for synthetic grass but not all deodorizing products are created equal. You might find that the smell just ends up being masked, and comes back as soon as the synthetic grass gets damp. If you want it to actually go away, though, there are easy DIY solutions that you can make from ingredients that you probably already have in your home.
One way of dealing with the problem of synthetic grass and dog urine is to sprinkle baking soda on the affected area, and then use a broom to push the baking soda into the synthetic grass. Then, spray the area with a mix of half water and half vinegar. This will dissolve the baking soda. After that, you can either let it sit for a while and then hose it off, or you can just leave it if you prefer.
This treatment works very well on even persistent odours. If you want to make sure that your synthetic grass stays smelling good, you should hose the area off a couple of times a week. If you notice that the odour is once again beginning to build, simply repeat the baking soda and vinegar treatment. Your synthetic grass will look great and there will be no nasty dog urine smell.
