Anyone who owns a pet will tell you that our pet babies bring us immense joy. They are an extension of us and we lovingly dedicate our time, money and attention to ensure that our fur babies are well fed, well groomed, safe and healthy. As a matter of fact, owning pets has been shown to improve mood and mental health, according to a report from Medical News Today. Its no wonder they are centerpieces in many homes across the United States. With all the benefits that come from owning a pet, there are a couple of things that we must be aware of when it comes to your health and theirs also.
Did you know, unless properly addressed, pet pollutants could be extremely hazardous to both you and your pets health? With all of your good intentions, you could be putting your and their health in jeopardy by not properly addressing the many pollutants that pets carry.
What Are Pet Allergens?
Millions of pet owners have an allergy to their animals and don't even know it. Owning a pet, with a coat of feathers or fur especially, comes with its share of health hazards. These pet pollutants are not only a nuisance, but they can also come with major health risks if not properly addressed. Pets, like humans, impact your air quality dramatically mainly because the pollutants are microscopic, stay in the air for long periods of time and are easily transferred.
According to the American Academy of Allergy Asthma & Immunology, the various pet allergens can include:
- Pet Dander
- Skin Flakes
- Dried Pieces Of Feces
- Pet Dust
In particular, its the the proteins in these substances that trigger allergic reactions or even aggravate asthma symptoms in people. These allergens are buoyant, which means they easily remain airborne. The good news is, they can easily be removed from the air with a high quality air purifier.
Lets take a closer look at the most common pet allergen, pet dander.
What is Pet Dander?
The biggest and most common pet pollutant is pet dander. Pet dander are tiny, microscopic particles of skin that flake off your pet. They are extremely light and can stay in the air for an extremely long amount of time and can stick to things and fabrics easily.
When a pet licks itself and that air and skin is then shed it creates dander with additional allergens. This can all be intertwined and released into the air making you, your family and your pets vulnerable to the harmful effects. In addition, it can also settle into carpeting, furniture and clothing and travel from room to room. This is why controlling these and other indoor allergens are extremely important.
How Do Pet Allergens Affect Your Health?
Unbeknownst to them, millions of pet owners are allergic to or have asthma that is triggered by pet allergens. According to the American Lung Association, for those individuals who are allergic, breathing in animal allergens can cause respiratory problems, making the symptoms worse. This can lead to a decline in the ability off the lung function.
Pet Allergy Symptoms
- Runny Nose
- Chest TIghtness
- Watery Eyes
- Eczema or rashes
We are not the only ones that are effected by these allergens. Did you know that these allergens in combination with poor indoor air quality also effects your pet?
A study from the American Veterinarian was done to shown the relationship between indoor air pollution and respiratory disease in pets. The study found that high concentration of indoor pollutants found in the home was significantly associated with respiratory disease in pets, especially cats. As much as we do for our families and our fur babies, it's disheartening to learn that something we can't even see be causing them harm. Don't fret, there is a simple solution! A high quality portable air purifier can make all the difference in the world!
The Simple Way To Clean Your Air
I must admit, we were also a bit alarmed to learn how much our pets can contribute to the air quality in our homes. But lets get real, most of us would rather give up a limb than our loving companions (no way in hell would I give mine up!). Luckily we don't have to give up either because SimpliiAir small room air purifier makes it possible to have it all. Just click a button and forget about it. Yes, its that simple!
What is SimpliiAir and How Does it Work?
SimpliiAir is an advanced technology portable air cleaner that works to purify your air of toxins as small as 0.3 microns. These can include pet allergens such as pet dander, skin flakes, dried pieces of feces, dust dander and other airborne allergens invisible to the naked eye.
It uses a smart anion technology much like your immune system, to destroy these allergens. SimpliiAir senses these harmful allergens, seeks them out and attacks them in large numbers by emitting ions into the air. The emitted ions attach to these allergen's (dander, dust, etc), making the latter too heavy to stay airborne and are therefore eliminated from the air you breath. Once SimpliiAir pulls these allergens out of your air, they will no longer be able to cause allergic reactions or other respiratory problems when you breath. SimpliiAir portable air purifier needs to be a staple in every room of your home, office, car and even when you travel, since traveling exposes can expose us to large amounts of germs, viruses and toxins.
Just click the button and go about your day! Its THAT simple.
**For best results, use your SimpliiAir purifier along with regular dusting, cleaning, brushing excess hair from pet and keeping your pets groomed and clean. Avoid having pets on furniture and keep the space well ventilated whenever possible.
