How to Manage Pet Dander In Your Home

Pet Dander

Our furry little friends aren’t just household pets, they’re actual members of the family!

Unfortunately, these new brothers and sisters shed enough of their dander to trigger allergic reactions and lower indoor air quality. Luckily, there are ways you can manage dander levels if you or a loved one happens to be sensitive to it.

What is Pet Dander

Most people believe that they are allergic to specific animals because of their hair. The real reason is because of their skin. Pet dander is comprised mostly of dead skin cells that flake off of the dog, cat, bird, etc. Once these microscopic cells fall from their respective animal, they’ll attach themselves to the nearest surface. Furniture, carpeting, bedding, and clothing are the prime candidates for holding excess pet dander.

Ways To Rid Your Home

There are various weekly chores and rules to live by in order to lower the dander levels within your home. However, there are no ways to fully remove all pet dander unless you rid your home of the animal causing it. But we all know that’s not going to happen!

  • Dust and vacuum regularly
  • Wash linens and bedding weekly
  • Keep the animals off of the furniture
  • Only allow your loving pets to live in certain rooms of the house; out of bedrooms
  • Wash your cuddly companion once per week
  • Have your HVAC system serviced and air ducts cleaned annually
  • Allow fresh air into your home; weather permitting

Lowering the dander levels in your home can lower the risk of an allergic reaction to those who are allergic and will also help those with asthma.

Thank you for the wonderful service your company provides. I am new to the area and got your number from the Yellow Pages. All of the ads looked alike. I called two other companies before I called Air Comfort. The first company did not show up.…

We wish to thank you for the installation of our new Lennox furnace and air conditioner, but more than the implements, we are grateful for the careful consideration of your technician. He did a splendid job, which we are sure was above and beyond the call…
