Time to Get Rid of Pollen

It’s that time of year again! Spring has sprung and everything is blossoming and beautiful! However, with the beauty comes a thick layer of, you guessed it, pollen. As we all know, pollen pollutes the air and sticks to almost every surface triggering an allergic reaction for almost everyone.  

Pollen plays a vital role in sustaining the ecosystem and producing natural resources by helping plants reproduce. However, the pollen that did not make it to other plants has now accumulated on your house, car, and whatever else you have outside. This not only makes your belongings look neglected, but it can also cause permanent damage to your home. This is where a professional exterior cleaning company comes in.  

Here at McFly Pressure Washing, we utilize two highly effective cleaning methods. Pressure Washing and Soft Washing. When we are cleaning your roof or your home’s exterior, we will rarely use pressure. Think twice before you, or someone else, starts using a pressure washer on your roof or house. This can lead to permanent damage and cost you thousands of dollars in repairs or replacement. To make matters worse, your chances of getting reimbursed are very low if the company you hire is uninsured or under-insured.  

Soft washing is a method of applying a proprietary mix of chemicals to your roof or home to simultaneously clean the surface and kill any living organisms (usually algae and pollen) that discolor the surfaces. If you do not kill the organic matter, your home’s appearance will regress to its original state in a matter of months. Our team will utilize a proven process for cleaning your property and killing unwanted organic matter, whilst not killing any of your plants or grass. Soft Washing is also utilized for commercial buildings, decks, metal roofs, stucco, vinyl siding and more.  

Like most people, you know what pressure washing is and maybe even how it works. However, concrete is porous, and it can be quite difficult to deep clean on your own. On flat surfaces, we will utilize what is called a surface cleaner. A surface cleaner is circular and has two spinning jets simultaneously cleaning the surface with very high pressure and near-boiling water. Using a surface cleaner combined with hot water allows us to eradicate dirt, grime, and most stains from your concrete. We utilize Pressure Washing for driveways, sidewalks, and parking lots. 

Here’s Why You Should Consider Hiring A Professional Pressure Washing Company To Get Rid Of Pollen 

Allergy Aggravator 

Pollen can be a major irritant, especially for those with allergies. You can reduce the amount of pollen on your property by having your property professionally cleaned. Not everyone is allergic to pollen, but for those who are, the effects can range from mild to severe. When pollen builds up on outdoor surfaces, it can easily become airborne and exacerbate your allergy symptoms. Cleaning the pollen off your exterior surfaces will make it easier for you and your loved ones to battle allergies when enjoying the outdoors. Additionally, it can help prevent pollen from entering your home on pets, clothing, or shoes.  

A Sticky Mess 

Pollen is sticky and can easily attract other debris such as dirt, dust and tree sap. This can make surfaces appear even more dirty or unsightly. By Soft Washing and Pressure Washing pollen away, you can prevent other debris from accumulating on surfaces which keeps your home looking clean.  

Not So Easy To Clean 

As light as it is, pollen adheres to surfaces pretty well which makes it quite difficult to wipe or blow off. It is naturally sticky and becomes even more sticky when it gets wet. That being said, the effects of leaving pollen unattended are quite serious. When pollen is allowed to linger for extended periods of time, it will react with moisture and UV rays to cause discoloration and deterioration of your property. This is particularly problematic for painted surfaces, which tend to fade and peel when pollen is not washed away.  

When it comes to cleaning outdoor surfaces, Soft Washing and Pressure Washing are the most effective methods available. It is faster and more effective than scrubbing by hand. The last thing you want to do is spend a whole day cleaning, and not get the results you were hoping for. When you Soft Wash or Pressure Wash the pollen away, you save time and get a better result.  

Have you been researching how to clean your property yourself, or even looked up some local companies to do it for you? Make sure you do adequate research and take the proper precautions if you choose to embark on this type of project yourself. On the other hand, if you are looking to hire a company, here is a short checklist to make sure they are legitimate and don’t leave your property worse than when they arrived.
