PRLog - Jul. 30, 2012 - PEORIA, Ariz. -- Millions of pets call Illinois home and most are an integral part of families across the state.  Nationwide, estimates put the number of pets in the United States at well more over 100 million animals.  

For many people, their pets are an important part of the family, but homes with pets can also result in indoor air quality issues, allergies, and trigger asthma attacks.  Even for people without pets, they may still come in contact with other people’s pet allergens.

Pet allergies are quite common and both furry pets and pets with feathers can cause an allergic reaction in some people.  According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, between 15 and 30% of people who suffer from allergies have allergic reactions to cats and dogs.   Other reports indicate that approximately 10% of the population is allergic to animals.  Even pet birds can cause allergic reactions.

One company that has made a name for itself in helping Illinois residents identify pet allergens in their homes is EC2, Inc.  The company has decades of experience in identifying indoor air quality contaminants, including pet allergens, in both residential and commercial structures.

“When pet allergens come in contact with people who have very sensitive immune systems they respond to proteins that can be found in pet urine, saliva and pet dander,” reported Ed Chambers, President of EC2.  “People come in contact with pet dander by touching pets and contaminated surfaces and by breathing air contaminated with pet dander. Susceptible individuals may respond in a matter of minutes or the response may be delayed for up to several days.  Even people moving into a new home or apartment may be exposed to pet allergens and not even realize it.  EC2 offers affordable testing services to determine if pet allergens are present in a property.”

EC2 has sponsored an online video about pet allergens and IAQ.  It can be seen at:
