You’ve just inserted the key into your front door lock, turned the knob, and immediately that initial smack-in-the-face stench puts your nose on high alert. You have a pet, and your home smells like a kennel. If that’s you, you’re not alone!
As much as we love our furry friends, we wish their pet odors would stay outside. However, no matter what methods or remedies you’ve tried, that lingering smell of a wet animal still hangs in the air. If you want a better solution that will get rid of household pet odors once and for all, keep reading.
Indoor Air Quality Solutions
What’s the number one drawback of over-the-counter pet odor removal products? They are not designed as a long-term solution to effectively remove odor causing contaminants such as pet dander. That is why a day or two after using that aerosol can or spray bottle, those hideous pet odors return. To have complete control of your indoor air quality lies within one of these two solutions:
- UV Light Air Purifiers
- Whole-Home Air Cleaners
When you want a permanent solution to get rid of household pet odors, this is the best place to start.
Do Whole-Home Air Cleaners & Purifiers Get Rid of Pet Odors?
Yes, they do! A whole-home air cleaner can trap up to 97% of pet hair and dander as it passes through your home’s air ducts, preventing it from recirculating throughout your home’s air. A whole-home air purifier that contains an activated carbon filter, will work day and night to tackle pet odors or any volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in your home.
It is important to keep in mind that air purification solutions do not replace the necessity to groom your pets regularly. And due to their absorbing nature, rugs or carpeting must also be cleaned on a routine basis.
Whole-Home Air Purification Can Provide Less Strain on Your HVAC System
Without the proper air quality systems in place, the build-up of hair and pet dander can force your cooling or heating system to work harder and longer than it has to properly condition your home. This increased wear and tear not only reduces the life expectancy of your HVAC system but reduces it’s effectiveness and drives up your energy costs.
With a whole-home air quality system, you won’t lose airflow, as it cleans your air. That, in turn, maintains total efficiency within your HVAC system, and your energy consumption does not increase.
Whole-Home Air Cleaners & Purifiers Require Minimal Maintenance
Another benefit of whole-home air cleaners & purifiers is less maintenance and filter changing. If you’ve ever priced high-quality indoor air filters, you know they are a little more costly than a regular filter. That is because of their advanced filtration capabilities and they don’t need to be replaced quite as often as a regular filter does.
