How To Protect And Prevent Artificial Turf From Melting?
Artificial turf is a popular choice for homeowners and businesses due to its low maintenance and durability. However, high temperatures and exposure to sunlight can cause damage to your artificial turf, including melting and discoloration. Here are some tips on how to prevent artificial turf damage and melting:
Get Rid of Anything Heat Impacted: It’s important to look for any indicators in your yard and let us know, is there anything that is “burning” or heat impacted? If so, you’ll want to address that first before you install any artificial turf that is made of Polypropylene (PP) & Polyethylene (PE), which makes up the yarn component of turf.
Use a Shade Cover: Installing a shade cover over your artificial turf can protect it from direct sunlight and reduce the chances of melting. You can choose from a variety of materials, including pergolas, canopies, and shade sails.
Remove Debris: Debris such as leaves, sticks, and other materials can trap heat and cause damage to your artificial turf. Make sure to regularly remove any debris to prevent discoloration and melting.
Avoid High Heat Activities: Certain activities such as grilling, smoking, or fireworks can produce high levels of heat and damage your artificial turf. Make sure to avoid these activities near your turf and keep a safe distance.
Use Heat-Resistant Materials: If you have furniture or other materials on your artificial turf, make sure they are heat-resistant. This can prevent any damage caused by hot materials.
