While pets provide great companionship, they shed fur that adversely impacts your indoor air quality. If you live in Vista, CA, you can hire professionals to rid your house of pet dander and hair that can cause allergic reactions. Continue reading to learn how you can prevent pets from causing larger air quality issues in the future.
Invest in an Air Purifier
Install an air purifier where it can trap the most harmful particles to improve your indoor air quality. An air purification system captures dander and pet fur, alleviating asthma and allergy symptoms. Besides removing these airborne particles, a whole-home air purification system can help reduce chemicals, vapors, bacteria, germs, and household odors, including pet smells.
Bathe Your Pet Regularly
Cleaning and grooming your pets reduces dander and fur shedding. Generally, you should bathe your pet once a month and brush it every week or so. Maintaining a regular grooming schedule helps you reduce the spread of fur, dander, and allergens significantly.
Vacuum Your Home
Vacuuming frequently is vital in maintaining good air quality in your home. A high-quality vacuum sucks fur and dander, leaving your indoor air fresh. Experts recommend vacuuming heavy-traffic areas at least every other day and vacuuming daily if you have several pets.
Invest in a good vacuum cleaner with a filter, especially if you have allergic family members. You can even find special vacuums for pet owners.
