Don’t Let Pollen Disrupt Your Business

Don’t Let Pollen Disrupt Your Business

Flu season is still in full swing with a more severe pollen/allergy season just around the corner. If you’re living in Texas, you can expect everything to be covered in a fine yellow dust soon. Those with allergies may still be feeling the effects of cedar fever, with the peak being the first two weeks of January. This affects the outdoors visibly, but what about indoors? Apartments, office buildings, high foot-traffic areas, and more are significantly affected by allergy season.

Glide Rite Power Washing can help lessen the symptoms of allergies by keeping outdoor surfaces cleaned and sanitized. Allergies affect us because of their ability to be airborne. Pollen spores can remain suspended in the air for hours, waiting to be breathed in. The pollen count that you may check every morning is calculated based on how many spores are suspended in the air. Power washing is an environmentally safe way to rid the community of pollen.

Living Spaces

When there is pollen outside, there is pollen inside. That means apartments’, townhouses’, assisted livings’, schools’, daycares’, and hotels’ indoor air can be just as polluted as the air outdoors. Some studies have even shown that indoor air can become more polluted with pollen than outdoors. If you’re a building or facilities manager, one of the best things you can do to prevent indoor pollen pollution is to have the exterior of your building and the surrounding areas (sidewalks, parking lots, etc.) power washed.

Power washing the exterior of your building reduces the amount of pollen directly outside. This reduces the amount of polluted air coming in through doors, windows, cracks, and with people. Pollen season is the perfect time to show your tenants just how much you care about them; take this opportunity to increase your curb appeal and your tenants’ happiness (while decreasing their allergy symptoms).

Not only does power washing your commercial building during pollen season increase your curb appeal, it helps decrease the risk of stains. Pollen that is left for too long on a building can stain cloth, plastic, caulk, and more yellow. Rain isn’t strong enough to rid pollen’s dye from your building, but power washing is. Glide Rite can wash your awnings, windows, doors, walls, sideways, parking lots, flags, banners, poles, facades, and more. Use preventative maintenance to protect your building this pollen season.

Parks & Playgrounds

With beautiful Texas weather, it’s nice to spend time outside. Parks, playgrounds, hiking trails, downtown, and more are perfect weekend spots. But once these areas are covered in a yellow pollen haze, going outside can seem cumbersome. Even without allergies, nobody wants to spend time with yellow dust that can get all over them and become an annoyance. Glide Rite can power wash away all the pollen on playgrounds, parks, hiking trails, and downtown sidewalks and buildings.

Around six million children and twenty million adults have allergies to pollen in the US. Power washing is an eco-friendly way to protect and sanitize our community. With the flu, cedar fever, and now more pollen coming our way, it’s time we took some preventative measures. The less pollen in our community, the better! Businesses can trust Glide Rite Power Washing to rid their business of unwanted stains, gum, graffiti, and pollen.


Pollen season is only expected to get worse based on last year’s pollen count and this pollen tracker. Power washing doesn’t only rid your business of pollen to save your customers, tenants, team, or even yourself from allergies; we can help your business shine like new. Pollen season is the perfect time to have your commercial property power washed because you get to fill two needs with one deed!
