Your pets are filing your home with lots of love and joy, they also become our best friends. With them inside your home, you need to do extra cleaning and maintenance on your home and HVAC system. Pets come with significant effect on your indoor air quality as well.
To protect your HVAC investment and keep your family healthier, here are effective maintenance tips to follow.
- Dust and Vacuum Regularly
Your pets shed dander and hair daily; therefore, you should also clean your home routinely. Dusting and vacuuming should be part of your daily chores to lessen the pollutants in your indoor air.
- Bathe and Groom Your Pets
Taking care of your pets comes with responsibility such as bathing and grooming. Frequent baths control allergens and odor and help maintain your pets healthy fur and skin.
- Clean/Change Air Filters Frequently
Dirty and clogged filters can compromise your indoor air quality. If the filters get clogged, your system may automatically shut down; thus, cleaning and replacing your filters must be your priority. Do routine maintenance on air filters and keep them clean at all times.
Experts recommend upgrading to HEPA filters to reduce allergen buildup by up to 99%. This filter traps microscopic dander and other airborne particles hence, improving your IAQ and extending the life of your HVAC system.
