Indoor Air Quality Tips For Homes With Pets
Having pets in your home can decrease the quality and cleanliness of the air you breathe. Many types of pets have dander that they leave throughout any area of the house where they roam. This dander can cause sneezing and other respiratory issues. The hair that your pet sheds can also be sucked into the HVAC system of your home. It can get caught in filters and cause the efficiency of your unit to decrease. There are several steps you can take to improve the indoor air quality in your home, even if you have pets.

Groom Pets Frequently

Keeping your pets clean can help minimize the dander and hair that they leave throughout your home. Giving them regular brushings can remove loose hair. Grooming them outside of your home can reduce the amount of dander and hair that enters into your HVAC system. Having a professional perform the grooming is an effective way to improve indoor air quality.

Install an Air Purifier

An air purifier in your home can reduce the particulates circulating and reduce the spread of harmful bacteria. Air purifiers can minimize the dander and pet hair that gets moved around your HVAC system and breathed in by your family.
