Indoor Air Quality for Homes with Pets
Posted by MM Comfort BLOG
MM Comfort Systems understands the importance of having exceptional air quality in your home. If you have pets, their fur and dander can decrease the health of the air in your residence. Pets also track in a lot of dirt that can cause a variety of issues. There are several steps you can take to counteract the effect of pets on indoor air quality.
Keep Your Home Clean
Maintaining clean floors and surfaces throughout your house can decrease the number of particles that are circulating in the air. Regularly sweeping, mopping, and vacuuming your residence will collect and get rid of particles that could aggravate asthma symptoms and spread disease. Make sure to clean litter boxes often, and pay special attention when cleaning in areas where your pet likes to sleep.
Install Clean Air Filters
The central heating and cooling system of your home is set up to keep the circulating air as clean as possible. Filters should be swapped out whenever they get dirty. When in regular houses, filters last three to six months, but pet hair and dirt can get them dirty more quickly. Dirty filters stop airflow and can't remove as much particulate from the air.
Get Regular Duct Cleaning
Keeping the ductwork in your home clean can prevent the circulation of dirt and debris. A professional can make sure that all obstructions are removed so that clean air can circulate freely and safely throughout the rooms of your house.
