If you have a dog and your synthetic lawn is installed without PetFill®, you are virtually guaranteed to have a smelly backyard.
This is caused by dog urine soaking into the silica sand infill which is spread on top of the synthetic grass. The urine then works its way through the grass backing and into the cracker dust/crushed blue metal base then eventually into the earth below.
This means the problem isn’t actually caused by urine being absorbed into the synthetic grass blades & backing. It’s caused by a build-up of urine in the silica sand infill and the base. This results in the formation of ammonia gases which cause an unpleasant smell.
PetFill® solves this problem by absorbing the urine before it reaches the backing & the base. PetFill® is scientifically proven to have a high ammonia binding capacity. It absorbs the urine into its molecular structure and prevents the ammonia from forming an unpleasant smelling gas.
In most cases, the application of PetFill® to your artificial grass will eradicate any smell but, in some instances, you may need Hinto’s back-up product, Lawn Reborn™ which destroys the bacteria which can cause a secondary smell
