This Year’s Pollen Can Create A Slippery Wood Deck Surface
Did you notice an increase in the pollen levels this year? Were your allergies worse than ever and your house more yellow than you remember? If you relate to this, there’s a reason for it. Pollen levels are on the rise.
A study published in The Lancet Planetary Health discovered an increase in pollen levels, which they say is due to climate change. Their findings revealed that the increased average temperature and the duration and intensity of pollen levels have increased over the past two decades. The New York Times also featured an article on “Extreme Pollen Blankets North Carolina in a Sneeze-Inducing Yellow Haze.”
Pollen And Your Decking
The extreme pollen levels not only have a drastic impact on your allergies, but they can also adversely impact your wood decking as well. Pollen that is accumulated on your wooden decking can provide you with a dangerously slippery area at your home or business.
A Clean Deck
A clean deck will not only keep your wood looking good, but it will also reveal its natural grain. It will also provide you with a safe walking area for your outdoor living spaces. Clean decks will also help provide you with traction and slip-resistance you need for optimal safety.
Pollen is not the only cause for slipping on your wood decking. Mold, mildew, moss or algae buildup can become a slip hazard as well.
