Your pets are a part of your Springville, California, home as well as part of your family. While you love living with your pets, it is likely that you don’t enjoy living with their hair and dander. The good news is that you don’t have to have your pets live outdoors. With a few tips and tricks, you can easily reduce asthma and allergy triggers that your pet may bring to your home.

Regularly Bathe and Groom Your Pet

The best way to reduce pet dander and hair in your home is to keep your pet clean and groomed. Make sure to bathe your pets once a week and brush them every few days. Consider taking your pet to an outside facility for bathing and brush them outside whenever possible. Regular cleaning will remove the loose hair and dander before they can shed it in your home.

Vacuum Your Home as Much as Possible

Vacuuming can help remove the dander and hair that your pet sheds throughout the home. Try to keep a regular vacuuming schedule. Be sure to pay extra attention to the areas where your pet frequents as well as where they sleep.

Clean Their Bedding Once a Week

Your pet is likely to leave much of their dander and hair where they sleep. Make sure that you keep their bed, blankest, and other bedding clean. This will not only reduce the dander and hair from building up but also will provide them with a more comfortable environment.

Have Regular HVAC Maintenance

Your pet’s dirt and dander can circulate through your home. That dirt and dander will likely end up in your HVAC system. This debris will cause your filter to clog more rapidly and the components of your system to become covered in dust. Always check your filter and change it when needed. Additionally, make sure to have your HVAC system serviced twice a year.
