You can use diluted solutions (bleach and vinegar) as a very effective and gentle cleaning agent
Artificial grass is durable and reliable and can withstand heavy use. It will not be damaged by chlorine, making it perfect to go near swimming pools. Any excess water will drain away easily, yet the grass will not be damaged by the chlorine or any other pool chemicals.

No, but open fires and hot objects must not come into contact with artificial grass. We know it sounds obvious, but you must prevent any fire and any hot items such as ashes from a barbeque or fire pit, or cigarettes from falling into contact with artificial grass, as it can cause melting.
