We love our pets, after all they are a huge part of our families. One thing we don’t love? The allergies caused by pet hair and dander. Thankfully there are a number of ways to reduce build-up of pet hair and dander in our homes. Below are some of our favorite ways (including air purifiers like our FP-F50UW model) to ensure the air in our homes is breathable and clean, while still keeping our furry friends close.
Air Purifier for Pet Dander Allergies
The best way to ensure that the air in your home is free of allergens like pet hair and dander is by using an air purifier. Using Sharp’s Plasmacluster® Air Purifier with True HEPA filtration results in a healthy and fresh environment inside our homes. The True HEPA filtration is ideal for removing common household allergens such as dust, pollen and pet dander. Allowing us (and our pet companions) to breathe easy and comfortably inside our homes.

Dust, pet hair and dander can linger in the fibers of carpets. These elements can build up over time and cause allergy sufferers to experience breathing problems. One way to combat this? Using tile or hardwood floors throughout the home. Not only are these floors easier to clean but they also don’t allow build-up of allergens. As an added bonus, hardwood floors add value to a home and have a timeless look that will never go out of style.
Brush Your Pet (Regularly)
Start at the source when it comes to removing pet hair from your home by consistently brushing your pet, or if you want to take it one step further Apartment Therapy gives some tips on how to “de-fur” your pet. Included in these tips are using a furminator pet brush or even using a thin sock over a vacuum to remove excess fur.
