NORFOLK, VA, May 13, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- According to recent statistics, more than half of the U.S. population owns at least one kind of pet—with 53% of households owning dogs and about 35% owning cats. This means a great majority of American homeowners are dealing with an inevitable occurrence each year—shedding season!
Excessive pet hair can affect a home's indoor air quality as well as the functioning of the HVAC system. To help ward off AC repairs that may be the result of too much pet hair, Miller's is offering five tips that help control excessive shedding—so everyone can live in harmony under one roof.
1. Change filters twice as often.
Homeowners know the importance of regular filter changes, but doubling up on filter changes and cleanings during shedding season is a must. Too much hair can clog filters and make cooling systems work harder than necessary. Cleaning filters twice as often is a huge help.
2. Groom pets.
Brushing and combing pets on a daily basis removes loose hair, undercoat and dander—and helps prevent them from entering a home's indoor space. Do this daily.
3. Invest in separate beds for pets.
Pets that travel outdoors can bring allergens and extra dirt inside on their fur. Keeping pets in their own beds prevents those allergens from making their way into a homeowner's bed—and helps reduce sneezing and other allergic reactions.
4. Upgrade or install an IAQ system.
Ensure the cleanest and healthiest air with the installation of an indoor air quality system. Reduce bacteria, viruses, allergens, pet dander, hair and more with one of these quality systems.
5. Clean, clean, clean.
One of the best ways to rid a home of excessive pet hair is to be a conscientious cleaner! Vacuum and dust on a daily basis to gain better air and a cleaner home!
