Change Filters to Remove Pet Hair from Air: When you have a dog you will soon realize that they shed hair and fur all over the house. They might shed more when the seasons change and it seems no matter how often you vacuum and clean it is still all around. They also have dander that is also going to shed and get in the air and all over your house. This is what will cause people to have allergies. The problem is that the hair, fur and dander is in the air and that means that it is circulating. It will get sucked into the filter but over time the filter can become clogged and the hair and dander can get in the ducts and more. You want to make sure that you replace the filters on a regular basis and often more in a home that has dogs in it.
Control Dog Hair in the House: You want to make sure you do what you can to prevent the amount of hair and dander in the house. This can protect your HVAC system and allow it to run efficiently and be long lasting. You want to make sure that you have your dog groomed and bathed regularly. This will prevent some of the shedding. You also want to make sure that you have a regular cleaning regimen that includes dusting as well as vacuuming the floors as well as furniture.
