While most associate allergies with the bloom of spring, it isn’t uncommon to experience all kinds of uncomfortable symptoms during the fall and early winter. In Maryland, the ragweed pollen persists well into the fall, only ending when temperatures drop low enough for the frost to develop. Dust, pet dander, and mold are other common triggers of allergies. Thankfully, there are simple ways to remove these allergens from your home this fall.

Keep the Windows Shut

The fall temperatures have arrived, and it may be your first instinct to throw the windows open and feel the cool breeze. If you’re allergic to pollen, opening the windows is one of the worst things you can do for your allergies. Keeping the windows shut ensures that pollen doesn’t accumulate on your pillows, couch cushions, carpet, and more.

Check Your Shoes at the Door

Whether you work in an office or spend your days running through a cornfield, pollen is likely to stick to the soles of your shoes. Implementing a “no shoes” policy in the house reduces the likelihood that pollen will spread throughout the rooms. Leaving shoes at the door or in the mudroom is a great way to maintain a tidy home, pollen or not.

Vacuum Often

Pet dander quickly accumulates through a home and can wreak havoc on a person who suffers from allergies. Whether you have a cat, dog, or five hamsters, it’s important to vacuum as often as you can. If you maintain hardwood floors, sweep often or use a vacuum that’s safe for hardwood. Another way to remove pet dander from your home is to dust often, especially the areas where your pet sleeps or plays.
