Let’s be honest -
Having a furry friend comes with a lot of benefits! Emotional support, unconditional love, companionship, and stress relief are among the many perks of having a pet. However, one of the downfalls that many pet owners face is constant pet dander.
If you or someone in your home or office suffers from pet allergies, you probably are already familiar with the impact pet dander can have on your health and overall wellbeing.
Here are 5 easy ways to limit pet dander right now!
Brush and bathe your pet regularly
Just like humans, pets accumulate dead skin cells that eventually shed. Brushing your pet spreads healthy oils from it’s fur to its body, keeping it’s skin and coat healthy (which means they will shed less!). Bathing, of course, is considered one of the best ways to rid pet dander. Just don’t overdo it, as constantly bathing them can be counterproductive by stripping their coat’s of essential oils.
Vacuum and dust your home
This is a given, but it’s easier said than done! Forgetting to dust on a regular basis can create a massive build up of pet dander, so it’s good to try and make it a weekly chore. Dander also builds up in carpet and upholstered furniture, and if possible, you should try and use a micro-filter bag in your vacuum so the dander doesn’t leak out.
Grow house plants
Believe it or not, houseplants are another great option for riding your home of allergens. In 1989, NASA released a Clean Air Study that suggested certain low-light plants may be effective in removing volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from the air!
Of course, there are a few plants that can be poisonous to pets, so it’s best to do your research first!
Install an Eco Probiotic System
Around 15% of households in this country deal with allergies related to cats, dogs and other pets. Pet dander can cause those who are allergic to react in different ways. Sneezing and/or a runny nose, itchy/watery eyes and coughing are all symptoms of pet dander allergies. Some can also experience rashes as well as facial pain. Many people believe the only way to get rid of pet dander related allergies is to get rid of the animal entirely. Though out of love for their beloved pets, many people simply endure their allergies daily. By using our whole-home air purification system and other probiotic-driven products, you can safely and effectively reduce the number of allergens in your home. Through the power of probiotics, our all-natural products clean and deodorize in a way that’s safe for your family, your pets, and the environment.
Try a probiotic mist
Eco Probiotic Mist uses the all-natural power of probiotics to reduce allergen symptoms and harmful bacteria in your environment! With one spray of the mist, millions of friendly bacteria begin consuming contaminants on surfaces and in the air. These contaminants generally include dust and animal dander, which are some of the food sources that all microbes thrive on. The mist actively works to protect you all the way down to the microscopic level, especially from dust mites, for up to three days after each spray.
Some pet dander cases are a bit more complicated than a new vacuum or starting a regular grooming regimen. It’s important to dig deeper into what triggers your allergies and what could be impacting your pet’s allergies as well.
