Pet owners gain pleasure and emotional support from their dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, and other animals. Despite the joys of sharing your life with pets, their presence in the home creates cleaning and air quality challenges. Fur can gradually build up in vents and ducts and reduce the performance of your heating and cooling system. Pet dander represents an allergen for many people and causes stuffiness, sneezing, watery eyes, and even rashes.
Sweeping, dusting, and vacuuming fur and dander every week from the flooring and furniture helps to reduce particles in the air. Diligent floor cleaning helps to keep material out of the ducts as well. Although regular cleaning improves air quality somewhat, no amount of vacuuming will prevent fur and dander from entering ducts entirely.
Furnace filters marketed to pet owners might state that they can last three months, but you might benefit from changing them monthly. This could be especially helpful for air quality if you have multiple pets.
