IAQ And Your Pets

Have you been noticing changes in the quality of your indoor air? There are many reasons that indoor air quality matters and one of the most important is the effect it has on your overall well-being. At Norman Air, we know that your furry friends mean the world to you. This is why we dedicate ourselves to HVAC awareness, so that good indoor air quality doesn’t have to be sacrificed on behalf of your household pets.

Do Pets Make Your Air Dirtier?

While pets make great companions and benefit our physical and mental health, they’re not amazing for our HVAC systems. They can be a source of pollutants and allergens that can negatively affect indoor air quality.

Hair And Dander

Pets shed hair and dander, which can be a source of allergens for sensitive people. This dander is made up of tiny particles of skin that can quickly become airborne and be inhaled. When inhaled, these can cause allergic reactions like sneezing, runny nose and itchy eyes. Additionally, pet hair and dander can accumulate on surfaces such as furniture and carpets, making them more challenging to clean and contributing to overall indoor air pollution.

Bacteria And Mold

Pets can also be a source of bacteria and mold without proper grooming. Pets often carry bacteria and mold on their fur and paws, spreading throughout the home. These organisms thrive in damp environments, like bathrooms and basements. Molds and bacteria can cause severe respiratory allergies over time, making it essential that your furry friend is properly groomed.

While pets damage overall indoor air quality, there is plenty that you can do to ensure your pets aren’t damaging your respiratory health.

How To Get Better Indoor Air Quality

Improving the air inside our homes is essential for our health and overall well-being. But where do you even start?

Improve your IAQ with any of the following:

  • Open windows and doors to let fresh air in.
  • Use air filters, like HEPA filters, to trap pollutants and allergens floating around.
  • Clean the inside of your home by dusting, vacuuming and cleaning regularly. They will help control pet hair, dander and dust.
  • Keep an eye on the humidity levels in your home because high humidity can lead to mold growth.
  • Invest in a dehumidifier to control moisture or use houseplants as natural air purifiers.
  • Avoid smoking indoors. This will help avoid secondhand smoke, a major indoor air pollutant.
  • Regularly maintaining your heating and air conditioning systems will also allow for optimal filtering.
  • Opt for non-toxic or natural cleaning products.

By taking these steps you can help to reduce the concentration of pollutants and allergens in your home.
