Here are some effective ways to refresh and revive artificial or fake grass:

Brushing/Raking One of the simplest methods is to give the grass a good brushing with a stiff-bristled brush or rake. This helps stand up the fibers and redistribute any infill material.

  • Use a push broom or power broom to brush against the grain of the fibers
  • A synthetic turf rake can also be used to lightly lift and loosen the grass

Decompaction Over time, heavy use can compact the turf fibers down. A decompaction process helps reinvigorate the grass pile.

  • Use a decompaction rake or machine with rigid tines to aggressively lift the fibers back up
  • This allows any trapped infill to be redistributed between the grass fibers

Infill Top-Dressing Adding a thin top-dressing of new infill material like sand or rubber can instantly refresh old, weathered turf.

  • Brush the new infill deeply into the fibers using a power broom
  • This replaces any compacted/degraded infill and weights down the pile

Power Vacuuming A thorough vacuuming with a powerful vacuum helps remove any built-up debris, dust or old infill trapped at the base.

  • Use a vacuum with a beater brush to agitate and lift the grass fibers
  • Dispose of the old trapped debris for a cleaner refreshed look

Heating/Re-Straightening For extremely matted or bent fibers, using a specialized heating technique can help re-straighten them.

  • Apply moisture and heat to the grass using special equipment
  • Allows the turf ribbons to relax and be re-brushed upright

With some combination of brushing, decompaction, cleaning and infill replenishment, even older artificial grass can regain a refreshed, revitalized look close to new again. Consistent periodic maintenance is key.
