Front hall

Your hall may be one of the smallest spaces in your home, but it’s wherepollen finds its way indoors. Get into the habit of taking off your shoes and outerwear before entering the house, and have both indoor and outdoor mats to wipe your feet. Additionally, Tania Elliott, MD, chief medical officer of EHE, recommends having an air filter (or air purifier) in this area to reduce the pollen count in the air.The type of floor in your hallway is also key: As a rule, carpeting is the worst choice for seasonal allergies because the deep pile will trap allergens from dust mites, mold, pollen, pet dander, grass, dirt and pretty much anything else you have on the soles of your shoes. The best choices are cork or bamboo flooring, as these are resistant to mold and mildew, provide no place for dust mites and other allergens to hide, and are also eco-friendly.(Related: The Best Air Purifiers for Every Room In Your Home)
