I hadn't heard that before, but it sounds like it could be a significant problem.
Since landers are small, maybe they could create a portable airlock that could be set up on the surface leading to the hatch of the lander. When I worked in a clean room, that's what we had to keep dust out.
That would keep the dust away from the equipment in the lander, and keep the breathing air clean.

I think so too. It could be collapsible so it doesn't take up a lot of space on the way there, and be left behind when they leave.

It wouldn't clean outdoors, but it could be set up like a tunnel to the lander hatch. Inside astronauts could be sanitized before entering the lander.
It would be for missions like the old Moon landings were.
It would at least ensure that their equipment wouldn't get fowled up, threatening their ability to get back home.
Setting it up would be their first task after landing.
