Anyone that owns a pet knows how they can enrich your life—the endless love and companionship are priceless and they truly become a member of the family. However, any pet owner can also tell you how hard it can be to keep pet hair and dander under control and the struggle to maintain indoor air quality.
The good news is you don’t have to sacrifice your indoor air quality when you have pets!
Check and Replace Furnace Filters
Having pets in the home means that you will most likely have to change your filter more often than homes that don’t have pets. All the loose hair and dander will get caught in the filter and require more frequent replacement.
Remember that the type of filter you use matters. Learn more about the different HVAC filters available.
Keep Pets and Homes Clean
One of the best ways to prevent hair and dander from affecting your indoor air quality is to keep pets cleaned and groomed. Brushing their coats, bathing them and wiping their paws after they come in can all help cut down on contaminants.
In addition, keeping up with dusting and vacuuming can help. Trapping hair and dander before it gets stirred up will help with allergy symptoms. A damp cloth can trap and remove allergens from surfaces while a damp mop will pick up any stray hair from the floor. Keeping carpets and sofas clean will also help improve indoor air quality.
