Here in Florida we especially see this happening due to our beautiful oak trees, but also cypress and cedar, Australian pines and others. The wind carries the pollen and the dried pollen strands through the air and it doesn't matter if you have trees in your yard or not - the pollen (and strands) are carried well over some distance and happily land on your front porch, your car, porch & screens, well, literally everywhere.
Those clouds of pollen emanating from these trees make many people react with allergies and only a good rain can alleviate the symptoms for allergy sufferers. But rain of any magnitude isn't predicted so there are a few things that allergic people can do:
- Keep the windows closed and run the air conditioner.
- Do the same when driving in your car.
- Wait for a good long rain to clean the air - or -
- Get your house and surrounding area pressure washed to clean the immediate environment.
If you are not good at performing a rain-dance but don’t like the yellow powdery film and dry strands covering your walk- and driveway, the window screens and basically everything else, call your pressure washing and window cleaning company and let them take care of the problem. A freshly cleaned home is such a beautiful site and helps to deal with allergy symptoms as well - at least when you are home :-)
And while a pressure washing technician is on your site, let them clean your gutters as well since the pollen strands and falling leaves quickly block the water flow and create an overflow that spills down your walls - leaving ugly yellow runlets on your siding or stucco. Yuck!
Schedule your pressure washing service early this year and stay on top of this seasonal problem!
