Cleaning Tips If You Have Pets

If you have allergy-prone guests coming this holiday season, you’ll definitely want to get out the vacuum, dust cloth and sanitizer and give your house a good cleaning. According to you may also want to try these tips to make sure your guests will be comfortable:

  • Give Fido a Bath Bathing your pet can reduce that amount of allergens – but only temporarily. You would have to be giving your dog – or if you’re very brave, your cat – a bath every 2 or 3 days to keep things under control in the long term.
  • Chill Out! Close the windows and turn on the a/c. You may think that the open windows will help clear the air, but they will also raise the humidity levels in your house – especially if you live in South Florida. Andrew S. Kim, medical director of Allergy & Asthma Centers in Virginia told, “Higher numbers of airborne allergens are found in homes with high humidity.”
