Whether you are sensitized to dust, mold, pollen or all of the above, it can be hard to know where to begin.

Start a no-shoes policy:
Keep dust, pollen and more from entering your house in the first place by supporting visitors to put their shoes at the door. Provide sufficient interior and exterior doormats to trap shoe dirt and a basket full of slippers for guests.
Swap out heavy curtains:
For years, we couldn’t get adequate of large, heavy curtains they were the essence of luxury and sophistication. Thick curtains with lots of folds and pleats are controllers at trapping dust and other allergens. Instead select blinds you can spread down or machine washable curtains at your home.
It is difficult to keep your house clean with wall to wall carpeting. Remove your carpet or clean it regularly because it traps more dust at your home. If possible, go with hard flooring like wood, tile etc. Because due to carpets there is more chances of dust as compare to hard floor.
Upgrade your vacuum cleaner:
Take one with a HEPA filter to trap allergens, these filters work marvels. Also be sure to select a vacuum cleaner with a bag that can be changed easily.
Keep your kitchen clean:
Deep scrubbing gets done maybe once a year, and our health is paying the price. Holidays are a great source to do a thorough housework of cupboards, in and around your fridge, your pantry, and anywhere else that might get missed on. Keep your kitchen clean on regular basis and always place your food items in airtight containers because in open air their might be bacteria’s.
Cover mattress and pillows:
Your bedroom might be your coziest room, but that also makes it the greatest allergen-prone room in the house. Zip on dust bug covers to shield your sleeping area. If you have kids, be sure to take covers for their mattresses and pillows too.
