Pet Owners: How to Keep Pets and Keep Healthy Air Quality

Apr 9, 2021 | Uncategorized

With spring upon us and allergies going through the roof, it’s as important as ever to stay on top of your home’s air quality. It’s especially important for pet owners because animals produce and carry a multitude of additional allergens. That’s why we at Westerville Air Conditioning & Heating put together some cleaning tips for Ohio homeowners this spring! 

How to Keep Healthy Air Quality In a Home with Pets 

We know that the best way to limit the impact of pet dander on air quality is to frequently remove it from your home. By getting a vacuum with a variety of attachments and features, you will be able to regularly and efficiently clean any surface. In addition, you can clean hard surfaces with microfiber cloths to remove dander, dirt, dust, and pollen. Depending on how much your pet sheds and how many pets you own, you may need to do this as often as once a week or as infrequently as once a month.

Groomers Are Lifesavers! 

When it comes to keeping your home’s air quality at healthy levels, regularly bathing and brushing your pet can make all the difference. Any pets that are allowed outdoors will carry in allergens, so daily brushing and vacuuming can help you maintain healthy air quality in your home. In addition, if you regularly take your pet to the groomer, then you may want to consider doing your house cleaning while they are gone. That way when they return clean and brushed, they won’t track around any allergens already present in your home before cleaning. 

Consider Investing In an Air Purifier

We highly suggest a quality air purifier to help you manage the overall air quality in your home.  Additionally, your HVAC filter should be checked regularly and changed at least once a month. Air filters excel at catching animal dander so it’s important to make this a priority especially if you own animals.
