Question DetailsAsked on 12/17/2015

What steps and cleaning products are truly effective in removing cat dander from a home?

Cats have lived in the home we bought and we plan to clean thoroughly to prevent allergic reactions. What are recommended techniques for cleaning, and also what non-toxic, non-carcinogenic products are recommended effective for cleaning up dander?

One service provider (ServPro) proposes to seal each room, use a leaf blower and air scrubber (a triple filter machine), then wipe every surface with cleansers. Yet the cleansers have toxic and corrosive qualities, so we're seeking healthier alternative cleansers.
Any recommendations about this proposed process or cleansers to use?

If a leaf blower is used, make sure they are using an electric one - gasoline, in addition to putting fumes in the house, can oil spot the house - both from gas/oil drips off the engine but also from the significant amount of oil included in the exhaust. Saw that mistake in a totally bare but very dusty garage once - left little oil spots all over the place.

Here is another recent (yes, I realize this is long after this original question, but might be helpful to future readers ofthis question) link to a couple of answers on this subject.
