With spring just around the corner, the promise of warm and sunny days is within our reach. However, if you’re a North Carolina native, you also know that spring around here also brings blankets of pollen over your car and your home.

When it comes to your car, it’s a great idea to use your garage if you have one. This won’t keep all of the pollen from your car, but it will drastically decrease the amount that it collects.

For the interior of your home, you’ll want to vacuum and dust regularly to get rid of the pollen that travels inside with you. Pets are another culprit for bringing pollen indoor; so, it’s a good idea to bath them regularly or to at least wipe them down with a towel when they’re coming from outside. Using door mats will also help trap some of the pollen that we all bring in from the outdoors.

When it comes to the exterior of your home, I’m afraid you’ll just be doing damage control when it comes to pollen. However, cleaning the outside of your home, will not only remove that unsightly yellow dusting covering everything, it can also help to relieve your allergies and reduce the amount of pollen you bring inside with you. To remove pollen from your sidewalk, deck, porch, or vinyl siding, you can use a pressure washer or a hose to wash away the pollen that collects throughout the day. You want to avoid using a pressure washer on your roofing too often to prevent damage, but after it rains, give your gutters a good spray down to wash away the pollen that has collected there.

For all of our Raleigh, NC clients, pollen is an unavoidable side effect of the beautiful spring flowers. However, although you cannot completely get rid of it, you can take steps to reduce the amount that enters your home.
