It’s National Pet Day!
There is nothing better than having a furry friend in the house. The excitement they show when you return home, or the ‘pitter-patter’ of their paws on a hard-floor as they trot about – having a pet brings joy and fulfilment to a home… until along comes the shedding of hair, or just the general ‘smell of pet’ around the house!
Using an Instant Air Purifier is an easy way to capture pet dander and pet smells that linger in the home. Fitted with intelligent sensors that work to monitor air quality 24/7, they automatically turn up the fan speed of the Air Purifier, when dander or smells are detected in the air.
Where does pet dander come from?
All our furry friends collect dust and dander on their coats, which then sheds with their fur. Pet dander impurities can remain airborne, or they can get trapped in carpets, furniture, or bedding. So, if you have a pet at home, it’s vital to ensure you’re cleaning both your animal and your home regularly to remove any settled dander, and an Air Purifier to help clean the airborne particles. This is even more important for those who have pet dander allergies, as a home with animals can trigger a nasty bout of sneezing, red, itchy eyes and even hives for those who are allergic.
How exactly do Air Purifiers work?
When fitted with a HEPA Filter, Air Purifiers can intercept particles from the air as they pass through the machine. Instant Air Purifiers are fitted with a HEPA-13 filter, that captures 99.97% of dust, dander, pollen, allergens, and other ultrafine impurities in the air. These tiny particles can be suspended in the air for long periods of time, regardless of whether your pet is present in the home or not.
Where to put your Air Purifier?
Obviously pets are very mobile, and move around the house a lot, so we’d suggest positioning your Air Purifier near to where your furry friend spends most of the day – whether that’s by their bed or crate. Alternatively, you may find it more beneficial to put your Air Purifier where you as the ‘hooman‘ spend most of your time , so it is cleaning the air around you. One of the great features of an Instant Air Purifier is their mobility. As they don’t require any “setting up,” you can simply plug them in and they’ll get to work, meaning you can easily move them around the house during the day. So perhaps by your dogs bed whilst your out at work, but then moved into the living room when you are home for the evening, and take it upstairs to your bedroom when its time for bed – the possibilities are endless!
