You may think you know what you’re allergic to and what your problem is because you know you have a pet or you know you’re sensitive to pollen. The fact that you know it’s there doesn’t necessarily mean that the allergen is there. And so if you have a cat and you think or know you’re allergic to the cat, well are you excluding the cat from your bedroom? In which case, are you minimizing your exposure to the cat? Sometimes that works and sometimes it doesn’t. But we are able to verify whether that cat allergen is actually getting into your bedroom even when you’re not letting the cat in there. Similarly, there’s things that are always going which may seem obvious to you but are not obvious until we actually find what you’re really being exposed to and then you can make a more rational decision about how to remediate it.
