Your pets might be cute, but it can be hard to enjoy them when just looking in their direction makes you sneeze. In addition to dander, your pets can bring a variety of allergens into your Baltimore, Maryland, home, causing allergic reactions and exacerbating asthma. Breathe easier through the summer by using these three strategies to reduce pet allergens in your home.

Clean Your Pet Often

Pets can be walking allergen repositories. Pollen, dust, bacteria, dander, and other allergens get caught in their fur, especially if your pet has long hair. Bathe your pets once a month to remove many of these allergens, not to mention the odors your furry friend might have attracted. Only bathe pets once a month, though; bathing more often can dry out their skin and result in more dander.

Install a Whole-Home Air Purifier

While your standard HVAC filter is effective at catching many of the particles your pet might bring into your home, conventional filters clog often and don’t catch all particulates. A whole-home air purifier, on the other hand, is a super filter that catches far more indoor pollutants than a standard filter. Most air purifiers also neutralize living allergens so they’re gone for good. Consider installing a whole-home air purifier to transform your home into an allergen-free sanctuary.

Designate No-Pet Zones

As much as you might love to cuddle your pets in bed, you’re getting allergens in your sheets and on your clothes. Those allergens will wreak havoc on you throughout the night. You can further reduce pet allergens in your home by designating certain areas of your living space as no-pet zones. Maybe it’s your bedroom, your couch, or your bathroom. Keep your pets out of these spaces to limit the effects of those allergens.

You can live with pets if you have allergies; it just takes extra work. Applying these allergen-reducing strategies will be well worth it when you can enjoy your pet and feel comfortable in your home.
