In recent times, misconceptions have arisen regarding the presence of PFAS (Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances) in artificial grass. At Turf Distributors, we are here to clarify that not all artificial grass contains PFAS. In this blog, we will delve into what PFAS are, debunk the myths, and explain how we ensure consumer safety with our PFAS-free products.
