At Clean Air Solutions, we know you love your pets greatly because we love ours too! However, they can bring a lot of unwanted hair, dander, and dust into your home, which makes it more important to ensure you’re doing everything you can to clean your home’s air (including duct cleaning!) Luckily, maintaining a clean ventilation system is relatively easy, and there are a few simple steps you can take between duct cleaning sessions to keep your house pet-friendly, but free of dirt, dust, and dander.
Our Top Tips for Pet-Owners
Cleaning and properly maintaining your ventilation systems ensures that the air circulating through your home is free of mold, dander, and allergens that can harm those in your home with allergies or respiratory illnesses. It can also help to reduce energy costs and save money, as a ventilation system free of blockages can maintain better airflow throughout your home. Best of all, cleaning up pet hair around your home and in your ventilation system can help prevent the build-up of the smell of pet hair and stale air, making your home feel fresh and clean, inside and out!
Use a Robot Vacuum Cleaner
It can be a hassle to vacuum or sweep up pet (and human) hair every day, especially for pet owners with very furry friends. Many pet owners also know how shedding in the spring and summer can lead to an uncontrollable and overwhelming amount of pet hair. Purchasing any brand of robot vacuum cleaner can help to reduce the amount of work you and your family do in maintaining a clean home.
By picking up hair and dander daily, a robotic vacuum can lessen the accumulation of dander, hair, dust, and allergens that reach your vents. Plus, consistent vacuuming can help to reduce the build-up of unpleasant smells caused by pollutants and debris inside your house.
Frequently Change Your Furnace Filter
Furnace filters help to prevent hair and other materials from getting clogged in your vents and ducts, lowering the amount of debris and pollutants circulating through your ventilation system and therefore reducing contact with your loved ones’ airways. Many HVAC experts agree that you should change your furnace filters at least every 3 months, but this should be done at least every 30 days if you are a household with pets or allergies. This easy task can quickly be done by anyone at home by simply turning off your furnace, removing your furnace cover, and replacing the filter.
Ensure You are Using a Good Quality Furnace Filter
It’s important to replace your furnace filters frequently, but you shouldn’t cut costs when it comes to these replacements! A high-quality furnace filter is worth the investment and will efficiently maintain healthy air quality within your home by trapping debris before it can reach your ventilation system.
Schedule Annual Duct Cleaning
There are many preventative measures you can take to prevent pet hair from clogging your air vents. However, these precautions are not 100% guaranteed to keep your ventilation system clean, so your best solution is to schedule a duct cleaning service once a year. At Clean Air Solutions, we offer the best furnace cleaning and air duct cleaning services in Edmonton and our surrounding area! During a typical furnace cleaning with Clean Air Solutions, we connect a vacuum hose from one of our trucks to your furnace, allowing us access to all vents connected through your HVAC system so that we can remove any debris in your ventilation system, cleaning your furnace and ducts thoroughly.
Potential and returning customers should keep in mind that it’s best to schedule with us in the summer months, as we face an abundance of calls and bookings during the fall and early winter months when furnaces once again become important in braving the harsh Edmonton winter!
