Decreasing Pet Dander
While we carry a full line of products to help customers with sensitivity to pet dander, here are some additional tips on how to decrease pet dander around your home.
If a member of your family has a particular sensitivity to pet dander, try to restrict your pets to certain parts of your home. Or, at the very least, keep your pets out of the allergic person's bedroom, so they have at least one allergy-free sanctuary. Furniture is one place where pet dander easily accumulates, so also try to keep dogs and cats off of furniture to decrease pet dander.
One simple solution is to just open windows to provide better ventilation throughout your home. You can also install vent filters and furnace filters to help trap allergens. AllergyBeGone carries a full line of these filters.
If you cannot leave your windows open, we recommend installing HEPA air cleaners to help remove additional airborne pet dander. Shop AllergyBeGone for the air cleaner that is right for you.
Even after a pet is gone, pet dander remains on furniture, mattresses and within rugs and carpeting. These allergens can easily become airborne, so we recommend allergy-free bedding products to help block allergens in bedrooms and prevent allergic reactions while you sleep.
Replacing carpet with deeply embedded pet allergens is clearly the best way to ensure said allergens are completely removed from the home. But if that isn't a viable option, you can always use a HEPA vacuum cleaner. The filters in these vacuum cleaners help trap and remove allergens. We also recommend using a specialized carpet care solution and carry a full line of products to cater to your precise needs. Also look for specialized pet shampoos to help reduce dander further.
