A home with a pet is generally filled with love and dander! That’s why it’s so very important to be aware of the air quality inside a dwelling. It could potentially harm you and your family’s health if not addressed immediately.

The following tips help improve the air quality inside your home especially if you own a four-legged friend or two:


Removing dander through regular dustings is an effective way to keep your home safe from allergens and improve your indoor air quality. Invest in microfiber cleaning cloths that can be laundered easily and pay close attention to areas of the home where your pets spend the most time.


Removing all traces of pets from rugs and carpets is highly recommended and should be done a few times a week for best results. Because animals shed easily, it’s important that you stay on top of this task so it doesn’t become overwhelming.

Changing Out Air Filters

Air filters are designed to catch allergens and contaminants and prevent them from polluting the air inside your home. When they’re dirty, they’re ineffective. That’s why it’s important to change them out regularly when you have pets. Every 60 days is a good guide to go by.

Keep your home clean and dander free. By following the tips listed above, you’re able to avoid illnesses attributed to and caused to worsen because of poor air quality such as allergies and asthma. You’re also able to create a safe environment for others to visit because they won’t be exposed to contaminants thanks to your commitment to dusting, vacuuming, and tidying things up.

Having your HVAC serviced by Tri-City Heating and Cooling is ideal because it keeps your system working longer and more efficiently.
