So many of us love our pets that we could never think about living without them. There are others, however, that get a severe allergic reaction as soon as an animal gets close. It could even get serious enough to warrant an ER visit.
If you fall in the latter category, you need to be careful when looking for a new home. While you might not feel anything right away when you tour the home, once you move in, you might notice that something is affecting you. This might lead to a lot of work to clean up your home to the extent that you are able to live there without trouble.
A thorough cleaning of your home can definitely help. You should use a vacuum that is equipped with a HEPA filter which prevents the pet dander from being re-released into the air and making your situation worse. You also should replace any filters in your HVAC system since these may release more dander over time.
