One of the best ways to combat these symptoms is to rid your home of pollen with professional power washing services. Shane’s Pristine Powerwash offers professional pressure washing services that can help clear your home of all that pesky pollen!
Why You Should Rid Your Home of Pollen
There are plenty of reasons to get rid of pollen in your home, but the most important one is for your health. If you suffer from allergies, then you know how miserable they can make you feel. By getting rid of pollen in and around your home, you can help reduce your allergy symptoms and breathe a little easier.
In addition to helping improve your allergies, getting rid of pollen in your home can also help improve your air quality. Pollen can cause asthma attacks and respiratory problems, so it’s essential to keep your indoor air as clean as possible. Power washing is an effective way to remove pollen from your home and improve the air quality inside. Here are some other reasons why you should rid your home of pollen with professional pressure washing services.
You Will Breathe Easier
We want to take a minute to go a little more in-depth about how power washing can improve your respiratory health. As we mentioned, pollen can cause asthma attacks and respiratory problems. If you have asthma, it’s important to do everything you can to avoid triggers. For many people with asthma, pollen is a major trigger. In fact, in 2012, the scientists at Yale’s School of Forestry and Environmental Studies researched the effects of prolonged exposure to pollen on asthmatic children. They found that,
“Exposures to even relatively low levels of weed pollen (6-9 grains/m3) were associated with increased shortness of breath, chest tightness, rescue medication use, wheeze, and persistent cough, compared with lower exposure among sensitized children taking maintenance medication.” Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America found that pollen was a trigger for over 50% of people with asthma.
Not only can power washing help remove pollen from your home, but it can also help keep pollen from getting into your home in the first place. By pressure washing your siding, you can create a barrier that will prevent pollen from getting inside.
Your Yard Won't be Destroyed
If you have a pollen allergy, then you know that spending time outside can be miserable. If you have a yard, chances are you spend at least some time outside in it during the spring and summer. Unfortunately, if your yard is full of pollen, it can be difficult to enjoy it.
When you power wash your home, you can also power wash your deck, porch, and any other areas where pollen has collected. This will not only make your yard more enjoyable to be in, but it will also help keep pollen from tracking into your home.
Pressure Washing Can Clean More Delicate Surfaces
Many people think that pressure washing is only for tough, durable surfaces. However, pressure washing can actually be used to clean a variety of different surfaces, including brick, stone, vinyl siding, and more. At Shane’s Pristine Powerwash, we use gentle cleaners and low-pressure nozzles to protect your delicate surfaces while still getting rid of all the pollen.
