Pollen count: Allergy expert shares latest top tips as grass pollen season approaches

Pollen can get stuck to hair and clothes which can make allergy and hay fever symptoms worse and therefore to manage symptoms, it is advised to shower as soon as you get in from being outside.

Clean regularly, by wet dusting and vacuuming, ideally using a special HEPA filter.

Cleaning using a wet duster or cloth will ensure that all pollen has been picked up rather than spread to other parts of the home.

Vacuuming will also make sure that all pollen that has built up on surfaces or on the floor has been picked up.

Wipe pets with a damp cloth or grooming brush after their walks to remove pollen from fur

As well as washing pets regularly, it is also recommended that you wash their toys and beds as often as you can as pets can carry pollen on their fur which can spread into the home.
