Pets and Indoor Air Quality

October 22, 2019

Having clean air to breathe in your home is important for your health and comfort. Summit Heating & Cooling recommends taking extra steps to protect the quality of the air in your residence if you have pets around. Animals can track in extra dirt and shed fur and dander around your property that will affect air quality. Taking steps to improve indoor air quality could provide many benefits.

Keep Your Home Clean

The best way to keep the air in your house safe is to make sure that surfaces are as clean as possible. Vacuuming, mopping, and sweeping floors can gather pet hair and dander and remove them before they go airborne. The areas where your pet spends time should be cleaned regularly. Keeping kennels and litter boxes clean can go a long way toward improving air quality.

Groom Your Pet

A clean pet will shed less hair and leave less dander around your home. Professional grooming will remove loose hair from your pet and get your furry friend as clean as possible. Regular baths will also keep your pet from spreading dirt around your residence.

Replace Dirty Air Filters

The air filters in your central heating or cooling system are designed to filter out particulates from the air. Under normal circumstances, these air filters should be replaced every three to six months. If you have a pet, you’ll probably have to do this more frequently. Dirty air filters will impede airflow and cause less air to get cleaned out by the system as well as increasing pollution in your house.
