For residents in Richmond and surrounding areas, a heavy pollen season is no foreign concept. Richmond has made it to the top of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America’s list of “Spring Allergy Capitals” for two years in a row. While we’ve been bumped down from spot #2 on the list, being #10 still isn’t something to be proud of.
Richmond’s struggle with pollen was especially heavy this year, starting as early as February with prematurely warm temperatures and quite a lot of rain. Last month, one day made it into the top 5 worst pollen days since 1988.
All of this pollen means that your car may still have a yellowish hue for a few weeks after the peak of pollen season. If you’ve read our previous blog post about why you should wash pollen off your car, you know how that can be important.
