How Do Power Brooms Help Your Artificial Turf?

If you have artificial grass installed in your home, then you know the importance of routinely reblooming your turf blades. From counteracting matting to aiding in drainage, reblooming your turf blades is an integral part of your synthetic turf maintenance routine.

For those seeking to rebloom their turf blades in less time and with less effort, power brooms are an ideal solution. A power broom is a round electric-powered broom with dense plastic bristles that rotate on a drum for a deep and powerful clean. 

Power brooms are an effective solution for distributing infill, revitalizing turf fibers, and removing debris. However, before you go out and buy a power broom for your turf, here’s what you should know about using a power broom for synthetic turf maintenance.

1. They Aid in Synthetic Grass Installation

When you first had your synthetic grass installed, you may have noticed the installers using a power broom as one of the final steps of the process. This is because power brooms can be useful during synthetic grass installation in several key ways.

Firstly, they help to evenly distribute infill. Infill is essential for adding weight and stability to your turf grass lawn, and having an even distribution is key to ensuring that the turf looks and performs as intended. By using a power broom, installers can add and distribute infill quickly and easily without worrying about uneven distribution.

Power brooms also help rebloom the turf fibers. Upon initial installation, the turf fibers may be flattened or matted down from being rolled up in the warehouse. After fully installing your artificial grass, many installers use a power broom to rebloom the turf fibers and help them look lush and full.

Finally, power brooms help remove debris that may have gotten caught in your yard during the installation process. It’s not uncommon to find dirt, dust and small rocks caught in the turf fibers after the installation is complete. Running a power broom through your lawn after installation will help remove this debris and ensure that the turf is clean, safe and ready for the clients to use right away.

2. They Make Artificial Turf Maintenance Easy

Power brooms are an incredible tool for synthetic turf maintenance because they make the process quick, easy and worry-free. Just as with turf installation, power brooms can evenly distribute infill, rebloom turf fibers, and remove debris during the artificial turf cleaning process.

Power brooms can also help you restore your turf’s full drainage capabilities by removing debris and other materials that may be blocking your turf’s backing and other drainage channels. By effectively clearing your turf of any unwanted materials, your power broom will help you ensure that water can flow freely and your synthetic grass landscape is draining at its full potential.

3. They Provide Long-Lasting Results

Since power brooms are so incredibly effective, this also means that their results last longer than manual cleaning tools. However, with this in mind, it’s important to not overuse power brooms, as they may damage your turf over time.

Since power brooms are so powerful, overuse can cause the turf fibers to become matted or damaged. As a general rule of thumb, you should only power broom your turf two to three times per year. Using the wrong technique can also harm your turf fibers, reducing your investment’s lifespan.
