Prior to any cleaning, our experienced installation and maintenance experts will carefully inspect your turf following our comprehensive checklist.
Turf Quality Check
Each turf cleaning job is different from the last. Part of our inspection is to check the quality of the turf. Not all turf is the same. We check the turf quality to determine which tools to use, check the quality of install, grass ounce, where the turf is made, etc.
Turf Blade Check
We check the turf blades to determine weather or not they are damaged. Different areas of your turf may or may not be matted down, have sun damage, sunscreen damage, damage from chlorine from a nearby pool. We inspect all of this and will determine which type of power broom to use, whether that's hard power brooming or soft power brooming. We have tools for every instance.
Turf Infill Check
Turf infill inspection of part of the cleaning process. Most turf installers, if they work strictly with contractors or are unlicensed, fail to use pet infill which helps keep pet odors out. We inspect the existing infill to see how much (if any) has been added, what type was added, and determine how much is needed. Most of the time if pet infill has not been added, you will need the required amount based off installation specs.
Turf Backing Check
Turf drainage is a very important part of turf care, maintenance and cleaning. A good quality turf should drain at least 30 gallons per square yard. If your turf doesn’t drain properly it collects odors, bacteria’s, mold, etc. We examine the turf backing, how much it drains, where drain holes are placed, type of turf backing, etc.
Turf Seam Check
We examine turf seams to see if they are nailed or glued down. Most of the time if you have visible seams, we can hide them.
Turf Base/Quarter Minus Check
When your turf was installed, 3 to 5 inches of dirt was removed, replaced with quarter minus, and packed in. This is the base or foundation of your turf area. We check to see if the foundation is intact and stable, how well it drains, and look for breaks, bumps, holes, etc.
Turf Perimeter Check
We check the perimeter of the turf area and its edges to see if they were installed properly. Turf, when properly installed, is nailed down 2 to 3 inches apart, not 6 to 8. If the perimeter of your turf was nailed 6 to 8 inches apart, edges get untucked and seams split apart.
Turf Heat Check
Turf in Arizona can get extremely hot. We test for heat issues and determine if you need cooling technology application to help keep your turf cool during the Arizona summer months.
