Hydro Clean: Pressure Washing to Help Allergies

Tuesday, 05 July 2022 14:51

Spending time in the great outdoors is a pastime everyone enjoys, but every spring, the emergence of pollen and other allergens can make our precious outdoor time more troublesome than relaxing. We may be tempted to stow away in the comfort of our homes to wait out allergy season, but the team at Hydro Clean knows there is a better solution.


Pressure Washing to Help Allergies 

The Dangers of Pollen and Other Allergens

Many flowering trees native to the Asheville area, such as the Ash, Birch, Cedar, and elm, bloom in the spring. As they flourish, they spill pollen over their surrounding areas. This chalky pale yellow substance concentrates on outdoor surfaces and lingers long after spring creating misery for those who struggle with allergies.

The risks associated with pollen, mold, mildew, and other allergens range from sheer annoyance to very real dangers, and monitoring their growth is an important step in home upkeep.

The Centers for Disease Control warn that many people experience sensitivity to molds, and for those people, “molds can cause nasal stuffiness, throat irritation, coughing, or wheezing, eye irritation, or in some cases skin irritation.”

The risks are even more severe for those with mold allergies or those people who are immune-compromised or struggling with chronic lung illnesses. This data underscores the importance of preventing mold and mildew build-up.

What some people may not know about pollen and other allergens is that they do not simply fly through the air in the spring; many of them adhere to our homes, attach to pets, or are tracked in by our shoes, allowing them to attack our sinuses throughout the summer and autumn months.

These allergy-causing masses tend to collect under eaves and around decks. It is also known that siding and roofs are infamous traps for these particles. But there is a solution to the problems they cause. 

A Solution to Allergens

One of the best ways to avoid the hassle of itchy throats, watery eyes, and runny eyes that accompany allergy season is by keeping the outside of your home free of mold, mildew, and other conditions that help to foster and sustain pollen and allergen populations.

Lucky for you, Hydro Clean is here to save the day. We know pressure washing might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you imagine healthy living, but pressure washing can help fight allergies and illness all year long. 

What We Can Do

Hydro Clean is prepared and excited to offer personalized, professional, commercial pressure washing services for homes and businesses in Buncombe, Henderson, and Haywood Counties. We serve those looking to remove stubborn pollen and other allergens and alleviate the cumbersome issues they impose.

Pressure washing is a perfect way to vastly increase the longevity of your home and promote the health and wellbeing of your family. The process not only provides aesthetic value but also provides protection to the places we hold most dear.

Our technicians are specifically trained to identify and eliminate allergen growths from siding, driveways, decks, and other outdoor areas. Their process is proven to help reduce pollen accumulations and help you survive the allergy season.

The team at Hydro Clean is trained to treat a variety of surfaces such as brick, stucco, concrete, and siding (aluminum, wood, and vinyl), all of which require unique methods and levels of pressure to avoid damage.

Our process is focused not only on brightening the exterior of your home but also on getting rid of allergens at their source. The process of pressure washing differs from power washing in that the water used when we pressure wash is unheated, while power washing utilizes heated liquid to remove mold and mildew.

The biodegradable solution we use, coupled with our soft washing techniques, makes our process environmentally friendly and helps to protect neighboring wildlife and your sinuses at the time.

When we arrive, our team patches any cracks, chips, or holes to protect your home or businesses’ interior spaces before getting to work. We then systematically spray surfaces dislodging mold, mildew, and pollen accumulations. The pressure washing process not only removes current pollen and mold build-ups but also helps to protect surfaces from future build-ups.

Getting Help 

While there are other preemptive efforts that can be taken to remove springtime pollen, we are convinced that pressure washing remains the quickest and most effective option to protect your home and spruce up your curb appeal in the process.

We understand that the idea of pressure washing may seem difficult to deal with on your own, but with our professional help, the stresses of allergies can be an issue of the past. No matter the size, big or small, we are here to help.
