Artificial Grass Maintenance Tips for Fall

Written by Artificial Turf Supply Commercial & Residential Division

Fall is nearly here, which means it’s time for cooler temperatures and possibly some rain. Fortunately, if you have fake grass, there’s not much you have to do to prepare for the coming season. Fake grass has been created to withstand outdoor elements, including rain, wind, and cold temperatures. Still, there are a few things to consider when taking care of your fake grass in the fall. Artificial Turf Supply Commercial & Residential Division offers the following tips on how to maintain fake grass during the fall season.

Eliminate Leaves and Debris

The fall season is when leaves do more than change color; they eventually drop off and get blown by the wind into your lawn. If you have synthetic grass, this means you will need to know how to properly remove these leaves and other debris that the breeze might bring. To get rid of leaves without destroying your turf, use a push broom to broom the turf against the grain. You can also use a rake or blower.

Stabilize the Fibers

It’s recommended to stabilize the fibers of fake grass at least every three months, so a new season is definitely a great time to do this task. The good news is that if you cleaned the turf with a push broom, you accomplished two tasks with one. The push broom not only cleans the turf of leaves and debris, but also stabilizes the fibers.

Artificial Turf Supply Commercial & Residential Division provides synthetic lawns for commercial and residential projects, including artificial lawn products for pets and playgrounds.

Wall Insulation For Your Next Construction Project

By Carlo Badalamenti

Insulation may be one of the most underrated features of any home. After all, people don’t tend to advertise how great their home’s insulation is. Nonetheless, it’s an incredibly important part of any structure, especially homes and especially those here in Canada, where temperatures can reach both sides of the thermostat.

In the winter, you need quality insulation that will keep heat from escaping through your walls. It’s especially important in the attic, where insulation can keep heat from escaping (remember that heat rises). An investment in insulation is not just about keeping your home comfortable, it’s about saving money on having to pump more treated air into your home to make up for the loss.

In the summer, you want insulation for the exact opposite reason: to keep cold air in. Otherwise, you’ll always feel warm and continue losing money as you pump more and more cold air into your home.

If you’re in the market for insulation, foam in Canada is definitely your best bet. You just can’t go wrong with such a versatile, effective and affordable option.

Not All Foam Is Dry Fast Foam

People are often very surprised to find out how much they’ve been missing when it comes to using foam cushions. Whether we’re talking about in the home, the office or in the lobby of your business, foam brings too much to the table to be ignored where comfort, cost and resiliency is concerned.

Unfortunately, that last aspect seems to cause a spot of confusion for a lot of people. Everyone knows foam is extremely comfortable. And everyone also knows it’s a great value for the price. However, how durable your foam is has a lot to do with which kind you bought.

Just because you went with foam, doesn’t mean you went with dry fast foam. This is the type of foam that is able to take all kinds of spills or even visits from Mother Nature and not fold. Instead, this amazing foam actually begins drying itself off immediately.

If you don’t have this kind of foam, you need to tackle spills and messes immediately. Otherwise, they’re sure to cause damage to the foam. Don’t make the mistake of thinking you have the dry fast version!
