Why Does My Turf Smell?

Updated: Apr 7, 2023

Artificial turf is beloved by dog owners, providing a usable, dirt-free space for pets to play and do their business any time of year.

Most dog owners don't often clean their artificial turf, believing the rain will do it for them. Unfortunately, when urine trickles through the blades of synthetic turf, it seeps under the grass, and coagulates between the bottom of the grass carpet and the weed barrier beneath it. As buildup accumulates, the odor intensifies. It can start smelling like the Phoenix Zoo, very quickly.

The stench can linger long after the liquid has been disposed of. It can last for months unless treated properly. Many products just mask the smell, but to really get rid of the odor you need to eliminate it at the source.

To get urine smells out of artificial turf, you'll need a cleaning product with enzymes and live bacteria that break down the source of those tough ammonia odors. Our process and proprietary formula use safe, naturally-occurring bacterial microbes that eliminate odors at the source.
