It can be a challenge to keep your home’s indoor air quality high when you have pets. They carry dust, allergens, dander, and stuff they tracked in from outside. Here are some ways to make sure the air you breathe at home is clean.

Keep Your Home Clean

Pet owners need to regularly deep clean their homes. This includes regular vacuuming, which will remove excess hair and dander from your home. Surfaces also need to be regularly wiped and dusted as dander collects on them. You should regularly bathe your dog and brush them while outdoors.

Keep Your Pets Out of Bedrooms

Your sleep quality will be reduced if you let your pets hang out in your bedroom. Pets should have their own area to sleep in. Their bedding should be washed frequently since your pets are likely leaving a large amount of hair and dander on it.

Keep Your HVAC Systems in Top-Shape

Your HVAC system should be maintained at least once a year. Pet hair and dander collect in this system. The air filter should be checked every other month and cleaned or replaced as appropriate. You might want to consider upgrading to a HEPA filter, which is effective at removing airborne pollutants.

Consider an Air Purification System

These systems remove dust, pet dander, germs, pollen, and other pollutants from your indoor air. You can buy these in all sorts of sizes, including whole-home air purification systems. These systems are practically a must for people with asthma or allergies. They don’t need much maintenance and can help your HVAC system operate more efficiently.
