Our pets are beloved members of the family, but they can make it tricky to keep a high level of indoor air quality. If your Lake City, Georgia, home is suffering from low indoor air quality, here are some tips to keep your air fresh even with a furry friend at home.
Filters are one of your best defenses against allergens and other debris getting into your home’s airflow. While you may be changing your filter every few months, having pets may require you to change it more frequently. Changing your filter once a month may be more beneficial and can help keep your air as clean as possible.
In addition, choose filters with the highest MERV rating possible that your HVAC can handle. They will keep allergens at bay.
Add an Air Purifier
Air purifiers are like advanced filters and include technology that can help clean your air as much as possible. There are both single-room and whole-home air purifiers on the market. It all depends on what you need. The biggest requirement is that you buy the size that fits your space best.
Air purifiers require little maintenance. Modern models are slim and take up very little space. Some have even reported that air purifiers help increase HVAC efficiency by removing debris that can clog up vents and filters before it can make it into your system.
Invest in a HEPA Vacuum
Finally, a HEPA-rated vacuum cleaner can make a significant difference in your air quality. Pet fur and dander are the most common causes of allergies, and HEPA filters are the best at trapping these allergens. Some vacuum filters aren’t fine enough to trap the particles, which can lead to the vacuum cleaner just spitting them back out into the air.
