If you have furry pets in your home or rental apartment, you know that they’re great fun and loved members of the family… if only they didn’t shed hair and leave their dander all over the place. This aspect of pet ownership is particularly pernicious because their hair and dander can easily get into your HVAC system and end up getting blown all over your home.
Fortunately, there’s an affordable and easy solution: air duct cleaning in your Vancouver home. Periodically cleaning your ducts is the best way to get rid of pet byproducts in the air.
The Benefits of Vancouver Air Duct Cleaning for Pet-Owners
Everyone knows that most furry pets shed hair, but less well-known is that they also shed dander regularly. That is small flakes of dead skin that naturally fall off over time. Unfortunately, pet dander is also a major allergy trigger for many people. Typically, if someone is allergic to cats, dogs, or similar critters, what they’re actually allergic to is the animals’ dander.
While pet dander is not inherently dangerous or toxic, it can cause all the usual allergy symptoms, such as:
- Runny nose
- Itchy eyes
- Occasionally even skin rashes
Additionally, pet allergies can be a problem for people with existing breathing conditions, such as asthma. So, if you have pets, keeping their hair and dander under control is important if anyone in your life is allergic!
That’s why we recommend a yearly professional air duct cleaning for Vancouver homes with pets. Pet hair and dander can easily make their way into your air conditioning system and settle into your ducts. Then, every time the air kicks on, more of the hair and dander gets blown all over your home.
Plus, regular duct cleaning also gets rid of any other dirt, debris, and waste in your ductwork. This improves your overall indoor air quality, as well as helps your HVAC system work more efficiently. It may even make your home cleaner overall. Dirty ducts spread dust all over a home, requiring more cleanup to deal with.
