Pet owners understand the importance of companionship! Dogs and cats just make life better— from boosting our mental health to helping us improve our physical health through trips to the parks, runs, and walks.
As soon as you adopt or rescue your pet, they become a reliable friend and part of your family. You certainly can’t imagine your life without your beloved pet.
But what about pet allergies?
Do you experience watery eyes, an itchy nose, and an inability to fully breathe with your lungs? Well, you suffer from a pet allergy. And you are not alone.
About 30% of Americans (according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America) suffer from a pet allergy. More than 90% of American homes have pet allergens deposited in their indoor air environment, whereas only 52% of homes have an actual dog or cat (according to The American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology research).
As you can see, there is no escape from pet allergens, and we know that you don’t want to part with your furry friend. So, what can you do to reduce pet allergens in your house?
You can always install a home air purifier to get rid of pet allergens, but don’t buy just any air purifier. The air purifier you buy for removing pet allergens must have the following characteristics:
H13 HEPA Filtration
When you buy an air purifier, make sure it has H13 True HEPA Filtration. This type of filtration system removes 99.9% of particles from pet dander, dust, dirt, viral particles, and bacteria, all the way down to 0.1 microns in size. Not only are these particles common, but your pet will track more of them into your home when they enter your home from the outside.
Robust Air Intake
When you buy an air purifier, make sure it offers you 360° robust air intake. This will ensure your air purifier traps and removes pet dander, allergens, and other particles from all the corners of the room while releasing clean air into the room.
Overall, a 360° air intake will ensure better air circulation in the room, making it easier for you to breathe.
Odor Removal and VOCs Capture
When you have pets and you are buying air purifiers for your home, you must purchase an air purifier that has activated charcoal filters. This filter is critical to removing pet odors and VOCs from the indoor air.
When you have pets, their saliva, hair, urine, and feces release all types of different odors. This can also be irritating to your respiratory system. Air purifiers with activated charcoal filters will remove as much pet odor as possible from the room. Also, this filter will capture VOC particles and make it easier for you to breathe.
As you can see, pet allergies are common and having a pet might affect your breathing.
Nothing is going to make you give up your pet, and we certainly want you and your pet to live happily and healthily together! So, we highly suggest that all pet owners get an air purifier with H13 True HEPA air filters to help reduce pet allergens.
