To properly clean the turf, rinse and use a stiff bristled broom or rake to groom its fibers. This will help prevent matting and maintain a natural, grassy appearance. If the turf is not groomed periodically and mats substantially, we recommend calling Texas Custom Turf to have it groomed professionally to restore its appearance. We also suggest for areas of heavy path traffic that you form a path of stones, bricks, etc. to protect the integrity of the turf. Learn more here.
No — simply rinse with water as needed. Solid waste can be picked up and residue sprayed clean. Rinse as frequently as desired to avoid odors, which are a build up of bacterial spores.

Ask about face weights, stitch rates, nylon thatch percentages, backings, infill options and test results. Get samples so you can compare and contrast. Indicate your specific needs, as backings and other aspects of the turf differ depending on use (for example, some types of less expensive backing do not quality for use on sport fields).
If possible visit completed installations or contact customers who’ve used products you’re considering. Ask about yarn technology; great advancements have been made since the days of Astroturf, resulting in more natural, more durable products. Texas Custom Turf takes great pride in carrying only the most advanced yarns available on the market today.
Finally, do your homework on the company making the turf. How long have they been in business? Where is the turf produced? What is covered under warranty? etc.
And if you’re a do-it-yourself expert, we’ll provide the materials! Whatever level of need, Texas Custom Turf can provide the solution.
