smellBgone Deodoriser & Disinfectant for Synthetic Lawn

Ways to care for your synthetic lawn with pets 

Artificial grass is saving pet owners time and money compared to maintaining a natural lawn, but a common and increasing issue has been pet urine and odour build-up on synthetic surfaces over time.

With a bit of lawn maintenance and using quality deodorising and disinfecting products, you can keep your artificial lawn clean and fresh, and your four-legged family safe and happy year round, said David Campbell from The Turf Doctor Australia, experts in deodorising and disinfecting artificial lawns loved by pets.

David has been working in the artificial turf industry for 20 plus years. Having installed synthetic turf in his own backyard over a decade ago to deal with the constant demands of three young children and two dogs, he is well versed in the advantages of imitation lawn and how to keep it clean and odour-free.

Installing artificial turf is one solution to managing environmental allergies (grass pollen) in dogs and humans, said David.

“What I learned from my dogs is that they love synthetic turf! Scotty is 11 years old now and still loves to play, roll around and scratch himself on the surface,” he said.

When David couldn’t find anything on the market that was organic and wouldn’t harm either his pets or the kids, he developed the smellBgone range – a deodoriser and disinfectant all in one.

The Turf Doctor’s smellBgone ‘infill’ product is designed to remain in the turf; it is organic and naturally occurring (similar to sand). The smellBgone ‘liquid’ is an anti-bacterial disinfecting deodoriser applied as a spray onto the affected area.

“The smellBgone infill and liquid products are non-toxic, biodegradable and provide a fast, permanent and safe solution to smelly pet problems,” said David.

Maintaining artificial turf with pets

To maintain your backyard turf, David advises regular raking and removing rubbish, such as leaves and of course, dog poo.

“Pick up after your dog every day to avoid discoloration or staining of the grass,” he advised. “Applying vinegar and water only masks the pet urine smell; it does not eliminate or remove the source. smellBgone absorbs and destroys pet urine odours.”

David has found the key to protecting synthetic lawn from playful pups is to give them something to do. Providing chew toys and treats and playing ball or scent games are fun ways to distract those busy paws, he suggested. You can also build a dog run.

“If your dog loves to dig, like Scotty, you can create a spot in your yard for excavation (a sand box or dog wading pool) and redirect his efforts there. A dog trainer can help with training,” he said.

Got a smelly problem in the dog run or sandbox? Not to worry – smellBgone works its magic there, too. Be sure to provide plenty of shade and water for your dog, David said.
