If you’re finding yourself sneezing more often than usual…

If the pressure in your sinuses is making you go a little mad…

If your eyes are watering and it’s not from chopping onions…

Then you know it’s springtime in north Texas! 

Springtime in the Metroplex is a catch-22 situation. On the one hand, the beautifully sunny days and wildflowers springing up along Texas highways is enough to make you want to whistle a tune (even when stuck in traffic)! On the other hand, the yellow cloud that descends thanks to pollen season can make for weeks upon weeks of coughing, sneezing, itchy eyes, and general feelings of malaise. 

Seasonal allergies stink. There’s not much you can do to escape it in the great outdoors (as the exterior of your vehicle can likely attest, despite your most recent wash). Fortunately, there are things you can do to combat pollen count indoors and that’s why we at Sonlight Cleaning Services have compiled a quick-reference list of things that can be done to improve air quality in your facility:

  1. Invest in an air filtration system. Especially if you have a high-traffic entryway, a commercial grade air filtration system can help to capture airborne pollutants before they can get very far into your facility.
  2. Schedule consistent cleaning. Sonlight’s specialty is working with facilities in need of five-days-per-week (or more) janitorial services. We believe that when it comes to your building and the people in it, the best way to maintain an excellent appearance and sanitation level is to clean consistently. While some companies may brag about their “deep cleaning” services, we believe your facility should never get in such a poor state that it requires a “deep cleaning!” Especially during pollen season, the last thing you want is a layer of yellow build-up on your floors, walls, and surfaces (seriously, it sticks to everything).
  3. Clean often-forgotten surfaces. You heard us right – we even clean walls! 
  4. Change air filters. Sonlight is a full-service cleaning company. We offer our clients the option of basic handyman services, including such routine (but crucial) services as changing air filters. This act alone can have a huge impact on the air quality in your building.
  5. Vacuum entryway mats throughout the day. Entry mats are a great tool for capturing dirt and pollutants before they make it very far. That said, they still need attention throughout the day in high-traffic situations. Sonlight offers day-porter services, which is especially helpful for our clients who welcome a high volume of clients, members, or employees throughout the day. 

Pollen season in North Texas doesn’t have to spell discomfort and inconvenience for businesses and their occupants. By enlisting the services of a reputable commercial cleaning company such as Sonlight Cleaning Services, businesses can take proactive steps to minimize the impact of pollen indoors, creating a cleaner, healthier, and more comfortable environment for everyone.
