Simple Home Improvement Tips to Reduce Pet Allergens

Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty - The Salas Team

With a significant number of households owning pets, it’s no surprise that animal allergens are prevalent in many homes. Contrary to common belief, it’s not pet hair but proteins in their saliva, urine, and dander that trigger allergies.

By making strategic choices in home maintenance, you can effectively minimize allergens and create a healthier living environment. Discover practical tips you can use to improve your home. 

Tips To Reduce Pet Allergens

Opt for Hardwood or Tile Floors

Carpet traps allergens deep within its fibers, making them difficult to remove. Consider upgrading to hardwood or tile floors, or if you prefer softer surfaces, use machine-washable area rugs over impermeable flooring.

Use Blinds or Shades

Choose blinds or shades instead of fabric window treatments like drapes. If you prefer fabric, opt for machine-washable varieties and clean them regularly. Vacuum blinds or shades weekly to remove dander buildup.

Invest in HEPA Air Cleaners

HEPA air cleaners effectively filter pet allergens from the air. Portable options are available for room-specific use, or you can install larger models alongside your HVAC system to purify the entire house.

Change HVAC Filters Monthly

Regularly clean or replace HVAC filters, especially if you’re sensitive to pet dander or have multiple pets. Follow manufacturer instructions, but consider monthly maintenance for optimal air quality.

Choose Easy-to-Clean Upholstery

Select furniture with upholstery materials like leather, microfiber, or outdoor fabrics that resist stains and are easy to clean. You may also use slipcovers, as they offer additional protection and can be washed weekly to remove allergens while safeguarding your furniture.


Incorporating these strategies into your home maintenance routine can significantly reduce pet allergens, fostering a more comfortable environment for all occupants. By creating a cleaner and more inviting space, you not only enhance the health and happiness of your household but also potentially increase the appeal and value of your home to prospective buyers. Remember, a little extra effort goes a long way in promoting a healthier and more marketable living environment.
