FAQ

Q: Can bacteria, mold, mildew and algae really grow on synthetic turf?

A: Yes. A synthetic turf system provides the necessary conditions to foster microbial growth.

Q: Won’t UV light from the sun keep my synthetic turf free of any harmful microbial contaminants?A: No. Aside from the fact that UV light isn’t enough to minimize the presence of microbes on synthetic turf, UV light doesn’t always reach every component of the field, such as crumb rubber.
Q: How is TurfD® affected by weather?A: Once dried on the field, TurfD® creates an antimicrobial layer that is resistant to all weather conditions.
Q: Will regular turf maintenance processes or equipment damage the antimicrobial layer?A: No. Basic debris removal, brooming and grooming of the field will not damage the TurfD® antimicrobial barrier.
Q: Will TurfD® run off of cause a negative impact to the environment?A: No. TurfD® durably bonds to all the components of a turf system and will not come off.
Q: If I use TurfD®, does that mean I never need to clean my field again?A: No. TurfD® creates an antimicrobial coating on turf that continually inhibits the growth of a wide range of microbial contaminants for three months. However, you should still clean and disinfect the field as you normally do to further enhance the effectiveness of TurfD® and maintain field hygiene.
