Pets are our best friends, and many of us can even call them family. While we love to play and care for our pets, our furry friends can also create some challenges when it comes to maintaining healthy air quality around the home. There are lots of pets that shed, and the accumulation of shedding can aggravate allergies, even for those who are not allergic to any animals. To help upkeep a high level of air quality in your home, follow these tips:

Brush Your Pets Often

Shedding and dander is common with a lot of pets, especially if they spend lots of time indoors. If someone in your home is allergic to pets, the buildup of shedding and dander can cause itchy, watery eyes and a stuffy nose. To reduce the amount of shedding and dander that accumulates around your home, be sure to brush your pet often to avoid having build up around your home.

Bathe Your Pets

Bathing your pet is a great way to reduce shedding and dander. You can even use a dander shampoo on your pet to help limit the amount that comes off your pet in your home. Be careful not to bathe your pet too much however, as excess bathing could cause an overproduction of oil on your pet’s skin.

Clean Your Home More Frequently

Cleaning your home more often can prevent shedding and dander from building up to the point where it can be a health hazard to you and your family. Be sure to wipe down surfaces often and vacuum carpets, rugs and upholstery.

Invest In A Quality Air Purifier

A high quality air purifier can do wonders for the air quality in your home. Due to the limited amount of ventilation indoors, an air purifier can help remove pet dander, pollutants and other allergens from your home.
