Pet hair is probably one of the biggest issues for those of us who share our lives with a warm-blooded animal. Whether you love a bunny, dog, cat, ferret, or guinea pig, there is hair or with birds’ feathers.
The question isn’t whether it will go airborne, but how much, and how much you are willing to breather. Using an air purifier is one of the best ways to keep airborne pet hair and feathers to a minimum and here are the top 5 reasons why.
Non-Invasive – Pet safety is at the top of every pet owner’s list. Using an air purifier whose only by-product is fresh, clean air takes a lot of the worry out of getting rid of hair. This keeps you from having to spend time, energy, and money to do something to your pet to reduce what is a natural process-shedding.
Requires Minimal Time – Opting for a cleaner that can run 24 hours a day means its working smarter rather than you having to work harder. Other ways of dealing with the problem such as vacuuming, dusting, mopping, bathing your pet, buying topical or oral remedies for you pet take your time and money.
Constantly filtering the air means there is less in the air, and less to fall onto surfaces, which immediately minimizes the impact the hair has on you and your pet.
Removes Normal Pollutants – The most effective purifier should include filters for both particulate and gaseous pollutants. So even though your main objective at this point is the pet-related particulates (and probably smells), it will also remove normal household particles and gases as well. These include but are not limited to household dust, dust mites, human hair, mold and mildew spores, bacteria, and viruses.
By the way, as unsightly as the hair might be, particularly when you are entertaining friends and family, there is another crucial reason to get rid of the hair – dander.
Your pet’s hair almost always has dander (dead flakes of skin) attached to it. It is the protein in the dander that is a potent allergen for many. By reducing the amount of hair in the air, you are also reducing your exposure to this potent allergen.
You Can Take It With You – A portable unit offers lots of advantages for the pet owner. Not only can it be moved closer to a problem within your space, it can very easily go with you should you move. It’s very comforting to know that regardless of where you and your pet call home, airborne hair never has to be a problem again.
A Permanent Solution – Shedding, whether it be hair, fur, or feathers, will be a continuing problem for as long as you have your pet. Filtering the air with a purifier to designed to do the job right is a continuing solution for as long as you need it.
