SEAM REPAIR/SEPARATION • LOW OR UNEVEN SPOTS • BURNED SPOTS • REFLECTIVE AREAS • RE-INSTALLATION • NEW INFILL • RE-STRETCHING

Fixing and repairing artificial turf instead of replacing it can provide significant cost savings for property owners. The cost of a complete replacement can be thousands more than repairing specific areas, such as separated seams or reflective burn areas. The process of replacing the entire turf is also more disruptive, as it requires removal of the old turf, installation of the new turf, and time for it to settle. By fixing and repairing areas of concern, property owners can save money and avoid the hassle and expense of a complete replacement. Regular maintenance and repairs of artificial turf can also extend its lifespan, providing additional savings in the long run.

Artificial Turf Repair Services:

Visible Seams and/or Seam Separation

Seams in artificial turf can become visible or separate for a variety of reasons. One common cause is improper installation, where the seams are not properly secured or sealed. Another cause could be due to heavy usage or foot traffic, which can cause the seams to become worn or torn over time. Environmental factors such as UV rays and temperature changes can also cause the seams to separate.

Examples of Seam Separation:

Low Spots or Uneven Spots

Artificial turf is typically installed on a flat, level surface made of compacted gravel or crushed stone called quarter minus. Over time, the ground underneath may shift or sink due to environmental factors like heavy rain or temperature changes, which can cause the artificial turf to become uneven or damaged. Repairing the ground underneath the turf can help to ensure a level playing surface and prevent damage to the artificial turf.

Examples of Low Spots underneath Turf:

  • From rain gutters
  • Sink holes from removed trees or bushes
  • Underground plumbing
  • Heavy rain
  • Walking around turf when wet
  • Construction

Burned Spots

Burn or melted marks on artificial turf can occur due to a variety of factors. Some common causes include exposure to high heat sources such as small engines like leaf blowers (most common), grills or hot metal objects, cigarettes burns, and exposure to chemicals of certain cleaning products.

Example of Burned or Melted Artificial Turf:

Reflective Areas

Artificial turf can be burned by reflected windows when direct sunlight is concentrated onto a small area of the turf, causing it to overheat. This can occur when windows reflect the sun’s rays onto the turf, creating a concentrated beam of light and heat. Basically when a window reflects on artificial grass, it acts as a magnifying glass when trying to burn leaves. This can cause the fibers to become overheated melted, leaving behind burn marks. To prevent this, measures such as installing shading structures, or treating the windows with a reflective coating or sun screens.

Artificial Turf Repair

Re-Installation

There are several reasons why you may want to reinstall artificial turf:

  1. Age: Over time, artificial turf can become worn  leading to a loss of its natural appearance. Reinstalling it can give it a fresh, new look.
  2. Drainage issues: Poor drainage can lead to standing water on the surface of the turf, causing it to become mushy and damaged. Reinstalling it with improved drainage systems can help prevent this issue.
  3. Unsatisfactory installation: If the original installation was not done correctly, you may experience issues such as uneven surfaces, seams that have come apart, or bunching of the turf. Reinstalling it correctly can help resolve these issues.
  4. Massive base or quarter minus issues where you have no choice but to remove the turf, fix the base and reinstall your turf.

Overall, reinstalling artificial turf can help resolve any issues you may be experiencing and extend its lifespan, making it a worthwhile investment in the long run.

Re-Infill Turf

Artificial grass infill can degrade over time due to exposure to heavy foot traffic and weather conditions. As the infill gets compacted, it can lose its ability to support the grass blades and provide shock absorption. This can result in a loss of softness and resilience, leading to an unnatural appearance and a rough feel underfoot. Additionally, the infill can become contaminated with dirt, debris, and pet waste, reducing its effectiveness. To maintain the performance and appearance of artificial grass, it’s recommended to apply  infill every 2 to 5 years, depending on usage and environmental factors.

I have 4 dogs so my turf had a really strong urine smell after 6 months of living in my house, I researched so many companies and ended up choosing Dirty Turf because of the products they use and how their process works and they have different tools that most other people don’t. They were the only ones who could do extractions to get the smell out. The turf turned out great, no more urine smell, they worked very quick and efficiently, and even added a special pet infill to help with any smell. I highly recommend them to anyone needing turf cleaning and will definitely be using them everytime my turf needs a recleanM WM W ★★★★★ Top notch service. Less expensive than all of the other artificial turf services around here. 1000 square feet and three dogs, haven’t cleaned it in a year, smell is completely gone. To put it in perspective, other places wanted to charge $1 per square foot but offer a couple of discounts to bring a $1000 bill down to $700-800 for this job of 1000 square feet. Dirty turf said it’s $564 and they did a killer job. I’m having them come out again later this year. No wonder they have all those 5 star reviews.Thomas R.Thomas R. ★★★★★ Quick and easy experience.
