Artificial Grass Cleaning & Maintenance Services
Arizona’s #1 rated artificial turf cleaners offering service throughout Phoenix and surrounding areas.
We are a full-service turf cleaning company with 7 truck-mounted cleaning systems and a team of knowledgeable cleaning techs with over 30 years of professional cleaning experience. Our sister company has been installing turf for over 15 years and has 11 installation crews that provide service throughout the Phoenix Metro area. If there are 2 things we know inside and out, it’s cleaning and artificial grass.
We have 2 types of artificial grass cleaning services – deep cleaning and heavy duty cleaning using truck-mounted systems. All jobs are treated as though they are new installation projects and are done to install specs. This means we use the right materials and correct amount of product from pet deodorizers, enzyme solution, and cooling technology application. Turf is essentially an outdoor carpet and luxury item, and we want to treat it this way. Our professional cleaning crews bring years of turf knowledge to the table to personally care for your turf. Don’t hire just anyone to clean and maintain your turf. Novice cleaners that have little to no experience with heavy duty turf equipment can cause severe damage resulting in a need for extensive repair or replacement.
We will get the smell out the first time and safely revitalize your synthetic turf. We are so confident, we fully guarantee our work.
Reasons your turf smells:
- You were sold a lower grade turf or cheaper turf that doesn’t drain properly.
- Your turf was installed incorrectly.
- The installer used the incorrect type of infill.
- The way it was installed does not allow for proper drainage.
- It has not been maintained.
Pressure/Power Washing Truck Mount or Portable:
Using a pressure washer to clean whether it is truck mounted or portable will not clean your turf. These are not professional cleaning machines, they just throw out water. Professional truck mounted cleaning machines are completely different then truck mounted pressure washers. Circular rotary cleaners and/or surface cleaners are not recommended for artificial turf potentially damaging it, they also void the install & manufacturer warranty.
All of this will be explained during your free turf inspection and consultation.

How We Clean Turf
Our unique approach and process is like no other and what makes us the best turf cleaning company in Arizona.
Turf Cleaning Service Plans
Deep Cleaning Service
Our deep cleaning service is performed using custom-built professional truck mounted turf cleaning equipment. We pre-clean your turf, using professional grade urine removal solution that removes odors the first time. Then, we power broom your turf using the same techniques used by seasoned installers. After that, we add the correct amount of pet deodorizer to keep odors at bay for the long haul. We also spray for black mold and fungus, as well as various other viruses and bacteria. We finish with our UV treatment (the first of its kind!), which protects your artificial grass from the sun’s UV rays.
Heavy Duty Cleaning Service
Our heavy duty deep cleaning plans are like no other. We are the only ones that provide this service in Arizona with professional truck-mounted cleaning machinery that penetrates deep into the turf, infill, weed, quarter minus and even weed barrier below! We thoroughly clean your turf using pet-safe and family-safe products, then add the proper amount and correct type of infill based on installation requirements. Our heavy duty service includes multiple spray treatments to completely clean your turf, no matter how bad the condition. Nobody does it like we do. See how our process differs from our competitors!
Not Sure What You Need?
Take our turf questionnaire to find out!
Why Does My Turf Smell?
Wondering why every time you go outside you all of a sudden feel like you’re at the Phoenix Zoo? Is the smell getting to be overwhelming? Have you tried the over the counter sprays you hook up to a garden hose and it doesn’t even work? There are several reasons why your artificial grass might have a strong odor. You may have a lower grade turf, a weed barrier, it may have been installed incorrectly or not maintained. Whatever the specific reason is, it usually comes down to improper drainage or lack of maintenance.
Synthetic Grass Backing
Turf backing plays an important role for artificial grass. If you have little holes on the back side of the turf, it won’t drain properly or air out. Here is what happens:
- Water, pet urine, or other moisture gets trapped under the turf and is not able to air out or dry properly. The turf begins to smell and can even get moldy. It is essential for turf to drain correctly and breathe. Tiger Turf is the highest quality artificial grass on the market, AGP Turf, LLC installs this turf properly.
Inexperienced Installers Installed it Wrong
If you hired an inexperienced installer especially a non-licensed one, it is likely they did not have the knowledge and/or experience to install your turf properly.
- If you have pets, you SHOULD NOT HAVE A WEED BARRIER directly underneath your turf.. Some installers put a weed barrier even if you have pets. Weed barriers prevent proper drainage and this contributes greatly to nasty odors. Not to worry Dirty Turf has the capability to remove smells even with a weed barrier under your turf without removing the turf.
- Using the correct fill material is a must. Inexperienced installers will use silica sand when you have pets. Silica sand absorbs moisture. When you have pets, copper slag should be used. Copper slag does not absorb moisture.
- They did not use a pet fill or pet deodorizer that kills off odor-causing bacteria. This should absolutely be used if you have pets.
Lack of Maintenance on Your Synthetic Grass
Proper maintenance is absolutely essential for the longevity of your turf. When your turf was installed, care instructions should have been presented to you. Unfortunately, a lot of people neglect to care for their turf and it’s not entirely their fault.
- Turf should be sprayed down frequently
- Pet droppings should be picked up and not allowed to sit (IT NEEDS TO BE PICKED UP OR IT WILL SMELL)
- Pet urine should be sprayed down regularly with a pet-safe spot cleaner
Over The Counter Turf Cleaning Products
Over the counter artificial grass cleaning products only block or mask the smell temporarily. The bacteria is still there and the smell will come back. We neutralize the bacteria using pet-friendly and family-friendly methods and eliminate the smell at it’s core.
Power Washing Method For Synthetic Grass Cleaning
This method does not get rid of the smell or even cover it. Power washing is the same process as using a water hose sprayer. Within a few hours your turf will smell again. A power washer or pressure washer truck mounted or not is just a pressure washer. Do not get this method confused with a Truck Mounted Cleaning Machine, two completely different machines.
Circular Rotary Cleaner For Synthetic Grass Cleaning
This method acts as a pressure washer an can potentially do more harm then good. These push out more water which leaves dents in your turf. These attachments are not meant for artificial grass. Just like a pressure washer they do not get rid of smells. VOIDS TURF INSTALLTION WARRANTY AND MANUFACTURER WARRANTY.
This image below is not recommended for cleaning artificial grass:
Soil or Quarter Minus Beneath Turf
One to three inches of quarter minus was installed beneath the turf as a foundation for the synthetic grass to lay over the top of. As dogs urinate the quarter minus becomes contaminated as well. Not only does the turf smell, but the quarter minus smells too, several tons of it. On 1,000 square feet we have to clean 10 or more tons of quarter minus. Our enzymatic cleaner is hands down the best product on the market. We use enough product to neutralize anything under the turf that may also be contaminated. Enough product has to be used in order to work. This will be explained in your consultation.
NOTE: Artificial grass is not inherently pet-friendly. You have to make it pet-friendly and maintain it to keep it pet-friendly. The materials added to the turf , when done properly, are what make it pet-friendly.
Steve and his team did an amazing job! Not only were they timely and professional their overall workmanship was excellent! Our turf looks and smells better than brand new! I highly recommend using their services if you need your turf cleaned and sanitized!Brian Padilla
I had dirty turf clean my turf in front and back yards.Kimberley Dodenhoff
He educated me on the cleaning process. He is very knowledgeable regarding cleaning artificial turf. The yard looks so much better and I know it’s clean for my three dogs now.
Working with Dirty Turf was a great experience. I just recently moved into my new home and they were able to clean up my turf to make it look new. Would recommend!Leah Crawford
I am the owner of Hardscape Express and install thousands of Sqft of Synthethic Grass each month. Ive been using Dirty Turf for the last 7 months for all of my clients. I've tried other companies that make an attempt to clean. Dirty Turf is by far the only ones on Arizona that know what they are doing. I will continue to use them.Thomas Vale
I have over 1000 square feet of artificial grass. I’ve tried every over the counter product on the market and nothing worked. There is another company in town that tried to clean my turf and they couldn’t get the smell out. I reached out to Dirty Turf and was hesitant to get it cleaned because I lost all hope. I caved in and all I can say is these guys know exactly what to do. My turf does not smell anymore. They deep cleaned it and put all new infill in. Have not had any issues since. My doggies and I can now enjoy my backyard again!!! Highly recommend these guys. Worth every penny. Thank you!Kristen Richards

Turf Cleaning FAQs
Does Dirty Turf have a warranty on pet treatments?
For pet treatments we give a 30 day warranty. How, we really guarantee should your pets never urinate on your turf again, your turf will never smell. Meaning it will fully be removed the first time.
What makes Dirty Turf different from competitors and over the counter turf cleaning products?
Dirty Turf is a sister company of AGP Turf and Synthetic Grass Masters, both are installation companies. We have combined experience of 15 years artificial grass installation and 30 years of carpet cleaning services. We understand how turf is supposed to be installed and properly cleaned. Over the counter artificial cleaning products are no match for ours. They mask the smell, we KILL it! We will deep clean and penetrate through any odor. We are not garden hose cleaners (spraying turf with a garden hose is not powerful enough to clean). We have the right truck mounted machinery to penetrate through any odor. WE REMOVE ODORS THE FIRST TIME! Turf restoration needs to be done by installation professionals. You’ve invested quite a bit of money in your turf. Installers like us should be handling re-blooming and restoring your turf. We are confident to say we are truly one-of-a-kind and are the best turf cleaning company in Arizona. See comparison chart here.
How is your turf cleaning process different than others?
Dirty Turf is the number 1 Turf Cleaning company in Arizona. We have professional truck mounted cleaning equipment specifically designed for synthetic grass that we drive out to clean your turf with several hundred feet of hose and very powerful sprayers. Truck mounted pressure washers are different then truck mounted cleaning, do not get the two mixed up. Pressure washers only make your turf look pretty, THEY DO NOT GET RID OF SMELLS. We have the best URINE REMOVAL PRODUCT, safe for pets on the market that will disinfect and kill any bacteria in your turf. Our enzyme will not only treat your turf but clean out the existing infill and while draining will clean the quarter minus under the turf. Our competitors simply hook up a cleaner to a garden hose and spray it; this is the same product you purchase at a local store or online. Our competition also uses the pressure washer method which does not remove smells, THEY WILL COME BACK!
How much pet deodorizer is required to put in synthetic grass?
Inexperienced installers sometimes put in the wrong infill or no pet infill at all. We will examine the infill that is already inside the turf. If there is none, 1 to 3 pounds per sqft is required. If your existing install had some type of pet deodorizer, we will examine it and will be able to know exactly how much needs to be added.
Can I use a shop vac to remove the infill?
No. Shop vacs are not powerful enough to remove the infill. You may remove some however its not enough to make any difference.
Is Dirty turf a bait and switch company?
No we are not. We are not the type of company to sucker you in for a cheap prices and you end up with a huge bill. Because we install turf, we know what Arizona turf owners go through when it comes to dealing with their turf. Most people go through the same thing; pet smells are horrible, turf gets too hot, turf blades are ripping out or weak, turf is flat and matted down, seams are showing, etc… We take care of everything in one cleaning without forcing you to upgrade. We handle it all in one service.
When can pets and children start using the turf again after cleaning?
If you choose just to clean the turf, you can use it a few hours after the cleaning. Allow the synthetic turf cleaning to settle a bit. If you choose to clean and add new pet deodorizer, you can use the synthetic grass as soon as new deodorizer is added and sprayed in.
Do I need to replace my artificial grass?
The answer is no unless it’s heavily damaged. We have yet to come across this issue.
Is it more cost effective to clean turf or replace it with new turf?
It is much more cost effective to clean it over new installation. A good install for 1000 sqft usually costs between $5500.00 and $6000.00. Cleaning 1000 sqft of turf correctly is $750.00.
Can I clean or maintain my turf on my own?
Deep cleaning turf and removing urine is not an easy process. Most over the counter synthetic grass cleaners do not work, or only work for a few days. We have the right machines and best products for cleaning your artificial grass. If you are trying to maintain the turf on your own, you must be very careful. If you do not have the proper equipment, you can tear out the grass blades, rip the seams, slice the turf and even melt the grass. We have the proper tools to get it done correctly without ruining your turf.
Do you clean putting greens?
Yes, we clean and sanitize putting greens all the time. We also improve the roll of your green to help improve your golf game.
Is power washing the same as deep cleaning?
Absolutely not. Power washing is just like running a high pressure hose on the turf. It will help get rid of any debris that is stuck in the grass. Power washing is a good method but it will not deep clean, sanitize or kill bacteria. If you want to truly clean, sanitize and kill bacteria, Dirty Turf will deep clean it professionally and you will have no issues.
Can I steam clean artificial grass, putting greens or any type of synthetic turf?
Absolutely not because it will melt the material.
Do deadly dog diseases such as Parvo & Distemper and also Ringworm live in artificial grass?
YES! If synthetic turf is not properly cared for your dogs can get very sick. People walking barefoot on turf can potentially exposed to all kinds of nasty things. If turf is covered in urine and pet feces, humans and dogs running and walking all over it can track bacteria and other nasty things back in to your home.
How often should I power broom or rejuvenate the turf grass blades?
Artificial grass is not a cheap investment. If you power broom it every 2 to 3 months the blades will wear out and break fairly quickly. Some people attempt to power broom or re-bloom once a month. This is a big no-no. Only professional installers should use a power broom on your turf. They know where the turf blades set and how to use the equipment the right way.
Can I remove pet odors from my turf with a pressure washer, garden hose, and some enzyme cleaner?
NO! A garden hose is not powerful enough to penetrate urine, and bacteria. It will not go away or it will come back fairly quickly. Getting your grass professionally cleaned comes with many benefits. Our crews are equipped with the proper machinery needed to deep clean and remove all odors from your artificial grass. Pressure washers or power washing only make your turf look pretty, it does not remove smells.
Do bacteria and certain viruses live in artificial grass?
Yes. Bacteria and other viruses live in artificial grass. We have put a list together here: Bacteria in Turf
Does infill keep your turf from smelling?
The answer to this is no. It does not matter which infill you have, if a dog is urinating on your turf it will smell. We have cleaned and installed thousands of sqft of turf. Every infill that is urinated on smells BAD. Although pet infill will still smell it’s good to have in your turf because you want this infill to absorb it and do its best to hide the smells for as long as it can. Pet infill is like a glorified kitty litter, it needs to be changed out or cleaned out. We guarantee we will remove all smells and they WILL NOT EVER come back should your pet not urinate on your turf ever again.
If you have a weed barrier directly underneath artificial grass will smells go away?
If you are cleaning artificial grass with a garden hose sprayer attachment or use a pressure washer, the smell will always be there. The Dirty Turf method of cleaning, the smell in the turf and weed fabric will go away. We even can do this without removing the turf. We can get all smells to go away while your turf is intact.
What is the different between masking smells, getting rid of odors and keeping odors away?
Masking smells basically mean the odors are still there but just hidden and come back very fast. Getting rid of smells mean the smells is gone but eventually new smells come back in between cleans. Keeping smells away is the what we do. We permanently remove all odors as if your dog has never urinated in your turf, and they stay away. When we come back for regular cleanings, usually smells are still gone.
