Hi! We are going to have our house and deck powerwashed. We are wanting to do this after all of the yucky pollen has fallen. When do you think all of the pollen will be over...and therefore the best time to powerwash? Thanks a bunch!!! You guys are great!

MIKE MOSS SAYS:      Helen,    Unfortunately we don't have any way to make a firm estimate as to when the pine pollen will cease to be an issue, but historically the big period for pine pollen occurs somewhere in the span from late March to mid-May. Since it has already become so intense in the past week or so, perhaps we'll be done with it by mid to late April this year, but that's just speculation based on the heaviest pollen typically lasting about 2-4 weeks.
