From children of all ages to adults and seniors, pets play an important role in the family dynamic. There are benefits to being a pet owner, such as having a companion if you are single, or helping to lower stress and blood pressure. In seniors, the role of pets helps prevent depression and can help avoid the frustrations of aging since there is a furry friend that requires their attention.
Furry friends make great companions! It is estimated that 70% of households in the United States are home to either a dog or a cat. While there are numerous health advantages to owning a pet, animals can adversely affect the indoor air quality of your home. Pets can trigger allergy symptoms and introduce other airborne irritants into your home.
However, what many people may not realize is that pets and indoor air quality go hand-in-hand . Pets shed hair and skin cells (dander), just like humans do. Excess pet dander and hair in the home lowers the overall indoor air quality. If you or someone in your home suffers from allergies, you may notice you or they are sneezing more often, experiencing itchy or running eyes more frequently, or having problems breathing. Unlike humans, pets tend to shed much more. Pet hair and dander can get into all sorts of places too, such as:
- On Furniture
- Under Sofa and Chair Cushions
- In Bedding
- Under Beds
- In Closets
- In Cracks and Crevices
- Along Baseboards
- In Air Ducts
An estimated 10-15% of Americans are allergic to pet dander. While you and your family may not be allergic to your pet, it is important to remember this statistic when you are welcoming guests inside of your home. Pet dander can easily become airborne and it will accumulate on the surfaces of furniture and flooring. Common pet allergy symptoms include: sneezing, watery eyes, rashes, and general respiratory discomfort. Rather than having to forewarn guests who are allergic to pet dander about the indoor pollution caused by your dear pet, which may lead to a decline to your invitation, our product, the AirRestore, provides you with the opportunity to naturalize your indoor air, in order to prevent the air pollution from your pet dander.
AirRestore units produce the energized elements that naturally belong in the air. Inside each unit is an Ionic Engine that produces the energy your indoor air lacks. A small fan is continuously blowing these elements out into the room. These energized elements cause a series of natural oxidation and reduction reactions that essentially break down the pollutants in the air. Your AirRestore systems return the natural cleaning properties found in outdoor air, to the air indoors.
The AirRestorer’s air neutralizers help you keep that pet dander, can act as Allergy and Asthma triggers, at bay. They help remove them from the air. Use the air neutralizer during the cold and flu seasons in a room. Keep it running for hours to help the air continue to clean itself, even after pet dander are absent.
