3 Ways to Improve Indoor Air Quality When You Have Pets Milwaukee, WI
Our beloved pets are a great company. For many who have had them for a while, imagining without them is simply impossible. However, your pet could be compromising the indoor air quality of your home.
Pets such as dogs, cats, rodents, and even birds are a source of pet dander. They also harbor mites. Both are known to trigger allergic reactions such as coughing, rashes, sneezing, watery eyes, and wheezing. The allergens can cause even more harm to younger members of the household and lead to the development of respiratory issues such as asthma.
- Have the air quality in your home tested regularly
That is especially important if members of your home are showing signs of allergic reactions such as watery eyes, wheezing, sneezing, coughing, or rashes. Testing the quality of the air in your home will tell you precisely what is in the air and guide you on the actions you should take to protect the health of your household.
- Install a whole-home ventilation system
Studies have shown that indoor air quality is much lower than that of the outdoors. Many people place their trust in HVAC systems to ‘purify’ their air. However, these systems aren’t efficient at getting rid of allergens in the air. They also keep circulating the stale and polluted air within the home.
One of the most effective ways to ensure that the air quality in your home improves is by removing the polluted air from within the house and letting http://www.canadianpharmacy365.net fresh air from the outdoors into the home. It gets rid of allergens from your pets and ensures you’re breathing clean air.
- Clean regularly
Commit to cleaning both your home and your pet frequently. Regular bathing and brushing of your pet outdoors or in a confined space (such as the bathroom) will help to reduce the amount of dander released into the air.
Invest in a vacuum with a HEPA filter. It helps to avoid exhausting dust back into the household. Be sure to vacuum rugs, upholstery, and furniture frequently to prevent a buildup of pet dander. Carpet and rugs should get washed regularly too. Clean beddings, toys, and other writing papers items that pets come into contact with frequently. Change pet litter boxes often also.
