Do you share your Ontario, California, home with furry friends? If so, you probably struggle with maintaining your home’s air quality sometimes. While your pets provide you with a lot of love, they also leave behind their dander, which can trigger allergies and exacerbate asthma symptoms. Luckily, controlling the dander in your home is easy by following these simple tips:
Groom Them Regularly Outside
Regular grooming isn’t only essential to remove loose hair from your pet’s coat. It also loosens and removes built-up dander. You should brush your pets a couple of times a week outside, and bathe them at least every other week.
Keep Their Sleeping Area Cleaned
Regular vacuuming is crucial in any home with pets. You should always pay special attention to the areas where your pet rests. These areas will have the most significant accumulation of hair and dander. Try to vacuum the area at least every other day, and wash their bedding once a week.
Check Your HVAC Filter Often
It’s always important to change your filter following the manufacturer’s guideline. But when you have pets in the home, you should inspect it more regularly. Pet hair and dander can quickly build up on your air filters. Therefore, you should change your filter every 30 days.
Schedule HVAC Maintenance
Without maintenance, dander and pet hair will quickly accumulate in your air filter and other parts of your HVAC system. By scheduling regular maintenance visits for your system, you’ll make sure that all of the components are clean. As a result, they’ll help to improve your indoor air quality and maintain good airflow so that the dander has less of a chance to settle around your home.
