Tips to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality if You're a Pet Owner
May 05, 2022
If you live in New Jersey, you know the air outside isn't always the best. Staying on top of your indoor air quality is essential for your family's health, especially those who suffer from allergies or asthma. Keeping your indoor air quality under control is challenging, but it can be even more difficult when you've got a furry friend living under your roof. We've got a few tips to help you improve your air quality if you're a pet owner.
Groom Your Pets Regularly
Bathing and brushing your pets often can help reduce the amount of dirt, fur, and dander present in your home. Fur and dander are big culprits for allergies and asthma symptoms. Taking your furry family member to the groomer regularly or bathing and brushing them at home will improve your indoor air quality and help reduce allergy-like symptoms.
Change Your Air Filter
Your home air filters prevent pet hair and dander from reaching your vents. Depending on what type of air filters you're currently using, you should change them every thirty days to stay on top of your indoor air quality. Changing your air filters can also reduce other pollutants, like pollen and dust, from entering the air in your home.
Dust accumulation is a massive factor in your home's indoor air quality. Dusting your furniture and hard-to-reach places regularly will help reduce the amount of dirt in the air. This is especially important if you have a pet outside because dust and dirt can accumulate more quickly when they enter and leave the house.
Invest in an Air Purifier
Investing in an air purifier for your home can help improve your indoor air quality. Whole-house air purifiers like the Aerus Air Scrubber are installed directly into your HVAC system by an experienced technician. These air purifying systems utilize UV light waves to create molecules sent throughout your home to clean and disinfect. They reduce and eliminate everything from air pollutants, cigarette smells, dust, pollen, pet dander, and mold, and they even kill 99% of germs and viruses. Many air quality issues start with your HVAC system. It's essential to keep your system maintained and checked out by a professional to ensure it's doing its job. Our experienced technicians at A.J. Perri are here to help you improve your indoor air quality, whether an HVAC tune-up or installing a whole-house air purifier. Call us to schedule a service today.
