How To Clean Soccer Turf With Chlorine Dioxide

Cleaning soccer turf with chlorine dioxide is easy and efficient. To get started, mix the appropriate concentration of chlorine dioxide as indicated by the manufacturer’s instructions. If using a spray bottle or hose-end applicator, adjust your equipment to ensure you’re applying the proper amount of solution over the treated surface area. Once ready, apply the mixture evenly to the turf while taking care not to oversaturate it. Allow adequate drying time before allowing people or animals on the field, so the chemical has enough time to do its job correctly. With this simple process, you can keep your turf clean and safe for everyone who uses it!

Maintaining soccer turf is essential for providing athletes with a safe and enjoyable playing surface. Sanitizing the turf with effective chemical sanitizers is one of the most important steps in achieving this goal, and chlorine dioxide are one of the best solutions available. Studies have shown that chlorine dioxide can effectively eliminate bacteria and other microorganisms from the soil without leaving any hazardous byproducts. It is highly effective at breaking down organic compounds like pesticides, fertilizers, oils, and grease, making it an ideal solution for sanitizing soccer turf with minimal environmental impact.

Chlorine dioxide offers several additional benefits when sanitizing soccer turf. It is safe for use on grass and other vegetation, requires no pre-mixing before application, does not leave any unpleasant smell or residue after use, and has a long shelf life. It is an economical option for large-scale cleaning applications over extended periods due to its affordability and versatility. As such, chlorine dioxide proves to be one of the most reliable solutions available for keeping soccer turf clean without compromising safety or comfort.


Use for public access, residential application, professional premises such as gym, workout equipment on sporting fields, or arenas, and other public facilities/industrial applications. Each gallon will treat approximately 1,000 – 1,500 sq. ft. of surface. Prepare activated solution to a strength consistent with the maximum threshold for sporting facilities, where a powerful biocide is needed, to remove airborne pathogens, for water damage and mold remediation in clubs, spas, gyms, or where turf is present for sports.
