Making a Pet-Friendly Home Welcoming for Visitors

Getting your house ready for allergy-sensitive guests is tricky when you have family pets. For allergy sufferers, pet hair and dander can make breathing uncomfortable. But you can find ways to improve the indoor air quality of your Watauga, Texas, home. If you have family pets, use your air conditioner and air purifier to help you get your home ready to welcome visitors.

Keep Your Air Conditioner Running

Home air conditioners do more than lower your home’s temperature; they also improve indoor air quality. Your air conditioner circulates the air in your home, filtering out dust and allergens. For anyone with allergies, running your air conditioner can make breathing the air inside your home easier, especially if you have pets that shed.

Remember to keep your air conditioner’s filter clean. Change or clean your air filter once a month, and if you have a family pet, consider checking your filter every two weeks to change or clean as necessary.

Turn Your Air Purifier to Full Power Before Guests Arrive

If you have an air cleaner or purifier, running the unit at its highest level is the best way to improve your indoor air quality. The faster the fan inside the air purifier spins, the more airborne particles — including pet hair and dander, it will filter.

Consider running your air filter on high for a few hours before guests arrive, then lowering it during their visit. When your guests arrive, the air in your home will be at its cleanest. These advanced systems also operate quietly and so won’t’ be a nuisance for your guests.
