Ways to Reduce Pet Allergens

Preventive Strategies

Some preventive strategies include:
 
  • Removing pets from your home if possible.
  • If pet removal is not possible, keeping pets out of bedrooms and confined to areas without carpets or upholstered furniture.
  • If possible, bathing pets weekly to reduce the amount of allergens.
  • Wearing a dust mask and gloves when near rodents.
  • After playing with your pet, being sure to wash your hands. Cleaning your clothes afterwards to remove pet allergens is also beneficial.
  • Avoiding contact with soiled litter cages.
  • Dusting often with a damp cloth.
