I'm surprised he didn't mention the use of a dehumidifier, especially in the winter when windows are closed. Dehumidifiers can keep down dust mites, eliminate mould issues and help control bacteria. Your floors and furnishings are protected and your health improves with the use of a dehumidifier.
I always shake my shoes well before putting them on - whether they are in closet or near door. When I taught school, I always had a lot of plants to help purify the air and I noticed we were a pretty healthy group.
i think taking off your shoes right inside the door is fine too. i kept saying that i wanted to do that when i moved into my current apartment, but i'm so used to just keeping my shoes on that i never got started.
i've been coughing quite a bit lately. guess it's time to vacuum?
