How to prevent mould on artificial grass?

Mould growth is very rare on artificial grass. That’s because synthetic lawns from Easigrass are resistant to mould thanks to in-built drainage layers. 

However, for this to have its full benefit, you also need to maintain your lawn to keep mould spores at bay. Luckily, this is easy enough with only some semi-regular upkeep, as artificial grass is known for its low maintenance requirements. 

So, let’s take a look at some simple ways to prevent mould growth on artificial grass.

How to prevent mould on artificial grass

It’s very uncommon for mould to grow on artificial grass, and is far more likely to happen in damp conditions that are then coupled with poor drainage. This is why it’s imperative to choose a highly recommended company to provide and install your grass. 

If the grass is already installed, what else can you do to prevent mould growth? It’s all in the maintenance. 

  • Sweep or rake your artificial grass weekly to prevent buildup of leaves or debris, which can rot down or create a moisture-rich environment for mould to thrive. Cut back any overhanging branches or trees to limit the amount of onto the grass. Make sure to always clean up after pets and pick up any food spillage. 
  • If you don’t have the time or ability to carry out this maintenance for yourself, simply arrange for some professional maintenance help from an expert, such as Easigrass Essex & Hertfordshire, the go-to artificial grass company for the area. 
  • Inadequate drainage is a major culprit of mould or mildew growth. If your grass was installed without a drainage layer below, you may wish to consider updating it to a lawn with a drainage membrane as it will save you some headaches in the future. 

Here at Easigrass Essex & Hertfordshire, we make sure to incorporate effective drainage membranes at the installation stage to keep your grass at the very highest quality. While our grass is extremely low maintenance, we also provide an excellent aftercare service to minimise the chance of mould.  

So now you’ve put the steps in place to prevent mould, how can you tell if it’s started to gain a foothold? 

How to identify mould on artificial grass

Mould typically presents itself as black patches on the grass, and may also be smelly after a period of wet weather. Take note as to whether it’s showing up in certain areas too, e.g. under foliage or at the dog’s toilet spot, and see if you can take preventative measures. 

How to treat mould on artificial grass

Mould growth is very unlikely on an artificial lawn, but if you do spot some, follow these key steps to get rid of established mould on your artificial grass: 

  • Rinse with a power washer or hose to wash off as much of the mould as possible. 
  • Next, choose an appropriate cleaning product to treat the mould, consulting with your chosen artificial grass provider to make sure you select a safe chemical. Once applied, use a brush to scrub off the mould, getting between the blades for full coverage. 
  • Finally, rinse the lawn once again to get rid of any remaining mould.
