You love your pet but are allergic. But what exactly is making you allergic, and can you see it?
Pet dander allergen particles range in size from 2.5-10 micrometers. This is much smaller than a grain of sand-- for comparison, one grain of sand is about 70-90 micrometers in diameter. So unless you have immaculate vision, you aren't going to be seeing pet dander allergens. What you are most likely seeing is pet hair, which can hold the small pet dander particles but is not directly the source of pet dander.
Now, what can you do about pet dander that you can't see? Well, don't fear; just because you can't see it doesn't mean you are out of luck. Here are three quick tips you can do:
1. Use an Allergen Spray; our minerals are designed to encapsulate and neutralize these small particles.
2. Use an air filter and change it often. Make sure you get a higher-rated MERV filter that is made for pet dander, as not all filters are the same.
3. Open a window once in a while, as long as you don't live in a big city, and the pollen counts are low.
