Household pets are among the most common sources of allergic reactions for children. It is estimated that 10 million pet owners may be allergic to their pets. 20% to 30% of the people who have asthma are also allergic to pets.
Many people react to pet allergies in extremely different manners. No one enjoys cleaning out the cat litter box, but for some people pet odors, dander, saliva and urine can cause them to have allergic reactions. Animal fur can also collect outdoor pollens, mold spores and other outdoor allergens which can travel throughout your house. The FreshStart process purifies the interior air of your home, eliminating these allergic triggers, while leaving your home with a fresh and clean scent.
A recent study reviewed by the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, indicated that approximately 80% of the pet owners surveyed keep their pets indoors most of the time. These findings may help explain why allergy symptoms, such as itchy and watery eyes, sneezing, coughing, wheezing and hives in allergic children and adults worsen with continued exposure to pets.
The American Lung Association’s “Health House Project” stated that “According to a recent study published in Pediatrics magazine, asthma cases could drop nearly 40% among America children under age 6 if susceptible youngsters didn’t have pets or other allergy triggers in their home. The study also found that children with pet allergies were 24 times more likely to have asthma than those without such allergies.”
One of the more difficult problems with allergies to pets is it can take two years or more to develop in a home and may not subside until 6 months or more after the pet has been removed from the home. Your carpeting and furniture can act as reservoirs for pet dander and allergens. The pet dander can became a food source for common household dust mites. These pest and allergens can also find their way throughout the homes’ heating and air condition system. These types of problems and allergens are purified at the molecular level during the FreshStart Process.
