Dealing with moss on artificial turf?

Is there a product or way of dealing with moss on artificial turf? A client of mine has asked me to deal with the problem but would like some advice as I don’t want to ruin the turf by spraying a product unsuitable for the job? I am PA1/PA6 qualified, many thanks for your time, Cheers Harry

    Im sure I've seen YouTube video of people using Power brush attachments on multi tools..

      Yes, they can be used at a sensible speed. You can also use a weak solution of something like MMC Pro (it actually list that as a use). Labels make it clear if there any considerations to be aware of, or test a piece out of sight first

        I was wondering if I could use MMC pro, I think I will test a small area first when it comes time, cheers guys

          does the sthil kombi power brush do a reasonable job of removing moss physically ?

          • PRO
            Yes they work reasonably well, but can be tiring over large areas. Find them great for paths etc.

            It’s a relatively low cost attachment enabling you to offer more services.

              got a tennis court to do sim to harrys -- you notice any difference between km94 power with it compared to km130 ? the you tubers seem to favour the larger motor

                Like Clarkson says....MORE POWER ! The brush is counter-rotating so harder work on artificial turf and less power means  it might 'bog' in the sward compared to hard surface tennis courts. I used a KM130 on both plus clearing light snow/ slush - brilliant ! but a good workout !

                ... Algoclear and new MAC Hi-Power can both be used on artificial turf AND hard tennis courts.

                  Thanks for that -- reluctant to get the km130 at the moment as its 4 mix ? although they do seem to have reduced the vibrations on the new ones which might be a persuader - 

                  Looks like the brush is a next buy though !

    Hi Harry, we have a professional biocide product called 'Sapphire' which is the same as the MMC Pro however much more concentrated so ends up covering 4 times the area. It is safe to use on all external hard surfaces including artificial sports turf.
