2. Rodent Allergens
Mice and rats produce high concentrations of scent proteins in their urine, which is a major cause of allergies. Almost all houses have mice allergens in the air, whether there is evidence of mice or not. Measures to reduce mice allergens include:
- Rodent control using an exterminator.
- Plug any access holes or cracks in the walls.
- Protect food.
- Clean regularly, using a vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter.
- Use a HEPA room purifier.
