Can I paint the exterior of my home or stain my deck during pollen season?

Over the past several years we’ve had a couple of high pollen seasons. The question we always get asked is, “Does the pollen affect the painting process?” or “Are you able to stain our deck during pollen season?” Not only do we get asked these questions, but we also hear a lot of people say, “We’re going to wait until after pollen season to have the work done.” More than anything else, you should have peace of mind in making a decision as to when or when not to have work done on your home.

From a business standpoint, I can’t remember a time when pollen prohibited us from doing our work. Whether it’s pressure washing, painting, deck refinishing, or any of our other services – we don’t have any problems with the pollen. There are a couple of reasons why we don’t have any problems: 1) Pollen is like a dust, and it can be easily wiped, blown, or rinsed off before applying any products; and 2) The materials we use dry very quickly during this time of year. The materials are dry before any pollen can stick to it.

Again, what’s most important is that you as a customer have peace of mind in your decision. If you think it’s best to have your work done before or after, and not during pollen season – that’s what you should do. We know if doesn’t affect the quality of our work, and DFW Finishers can give you the same quality job no matter what time of year it is – even during pollen season.
