With the coming of spring also comes one too-familiar issue: pollen. Many of us have seen and had to deal with the yellow pollen dust accumulating everywhere, and no places are at a bigger risk than our patios or outdoor decks. This blog will go over some ideas on how to keep pollen out and clean it easily before it starts building up.
We are also developing pollen-proof screen tarps. However, these tarps will offer more than just protection against pollen dust. These tarps will be able to fend off against harsh weather during all season. Offering custom sizes, materials, and accessories, our tarps will keep your patio safe.
Clear pollen tarp curtains come with grommets at the top, making hanging the curtains quick and easy with or without the curtain track.
Clear pollen tarp curtains are about 1/3rd of the cost of other separation methods such as rigid walls or panel systems and are easy to store.
Keep temperatures inside more consistent for a more comfortable patio environment.
Keep the wind and rain out when the weather turns nasty, allowing you to enjoy your patio space without any disturbances.
How To Keep Pollen Off Your Porch
How To Block Pollen From Screened Porch
These are some of the best ideas when it comes to preventing pollen from entering your backyard space:
- Cover outdoor furniture shortly before the pollen season starts. By doing that, pollen will never enter to begin with. Our patio furniture curtains are ideal here.
- Another option would be to use patio curtains. Unlike common curtains, these are usually made out of vinyl.
- Using magnetic fiberglass pollen screens could also do the trick. They attract the pollen and are easy to clean later.
- Having a ceiling fan inside will not prevent pollen from entering, but instead stop it from settling and building up.
- A common solution for outside decks is to purchase a misting system. The system will spray water just outside the patio area and catch incoming pollen.
- Scotchgarding the furniture will make it pollen-resistant. You will be able to easily clean it off, and there won't be any stains.
- Clean the deck or patio regularly, as small amounts of pollen might enter even with a lot of preparation.

How To Remove The Pollen
Quickly clean the pollen off with these tips:
- Decks and plastic furniture are the easiest to clean, requiring a simple dust off.
- For wicker furniture, collect loose dust with a vacuum cleaner. After, use soap and water and scrub off any remaining pollen.
- Cloth surfaces will need a good shaking so loose pollen comes down, followed with machine washing.
- A window cleaner and some sweeping will do the job for glass surfaces.
- Screens often trap pollen. Here, you can use a vacuum cleaner over the surface. However, be careful not to damage the screen.
- It is important to regularly clean the patio or deck area to prevent pollen buildup which will become increasingly hard to clean. In extreme scenarios, the buildup can lead to mold and mildew.
