Pet Allergies: How to reduce the symptoms

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, 3.2 million British households have acquired a pet, causing a rise in pet allergies. This dramatic rise in pet ownership means that the UK now has over 17 million pet-owning homes, that’s over 60% of the UK! There’s a reason we’re telling you this…

…did you know pets are the second most common cause of home allergies?

Why does this happen? The basic principles of allergies are always the same. Your body forms an antibody to protect against an unwanted substance. In animals, the unwanted substance is proteins found in their skin, urine, and saliva.

Do you often sneeze, cough, feel itchy or swell around animals? Chances are, dander is present in the atmosphere. While most people experience symptoms briefly after encountering the allergen, some people exposed continuously over long periods may develop chronic issues related to their allergy, such as asthma.

No need to worry; you can make your home a haven for your family and guests! Animal dander has a particle size of 5-10 microns. Most alternative air purifiers use basic HEPA technology that would not consistently catch animal dander. We use medical-grade HEPA-13 technology to ensure particles are caught and not circulated back into the atmosphere.
