Keep Inside Air Clean & Clear

This includes vacuuming area rugs, carpeting, upholstered furniture, washing sheets, pillows, and other bedding regularly will keep pollen, dust mites, and other allergens away.

Pay Attention to Your Pet

Consider adding a free-standing air filter to your home.

Opt for Faux Flowers

Decorate your home with a faux flower arrangement instead of a fresh bouquet. Fresh flowers release fragrance and pollen inside the house.
