Problems Pet Owners Should Look Out For
Both pet hair and dander can cause similar problems for people who live in homes with pets. Pet dander differs from pet hair, though, in that it is actually just a term for microscopic flakes of skin produced by dogs, cats, birds, and other pets. Other allergies, such as to dried saliva or pet excrement can also be problematic.
More people seem to be allergic to cats. In fact, research suggests that approximately twice as many people are allergic to cats as compared to dogs, making households with felines even more susceptible to indoor air quality issues. When a house has accumulated dander and other debris from pets over time, it will get circulated throughout your HVAC system, causing it to lose efficiency and your air quality to suffer.
