Your Artificial Turf and Dog Urine

You know the (ahem) offensive smell that sticks in your nose when you’re at a dog park on a sunny day? That, my friends, is the result of urine. Unfortunately, dogs can’t help the smell, they’re dogs for goodness sake.

When dog urine comes into contact with artificial turf, the natural occurring microbes begin to break down the urine into three parts- two parts ammonia, one part carbon dioxide. Those three little components- those are the culprit of that smell.

Envirofill®, which is infused with Microban® Antimicrobial Technology helps to reduce the creation of ammonia by fighting against odor-causing bacteria, mold and mildew. This means, Envirofill will help lawns not have that offensive smell that sticks in your nose! This is great news, people. This is a game changer.

Microban® with Antimicrobial technology reduces ammonia odor that’s caused by the breakdown of ammonia by up to 99%. Every household with a dog, every dog park, even homes with potty training toddlers- will benefit.  The urine smell does not have to be a part of an artificial lawn system. It’s a choice.
