Pet Dander

Are you having trouble ridding your home of pet dander? Here are some helpful hints on how to get rid of pet dander in an inexpensive way. Pet dander can be a task all in itself and for some it can be very difficult but don’t feel defeated. Your furry friends don’t have to be your enemy.  To rid your home of pet dander, you may be able to do so in just a few steps.

Pet Dander on Ceilings, Walls and Baseboards

Your ceilings, walls, baseboards and even some other household surfaces can come clean easily. Simply find a dusting cloth, a microfiber type of fabric works best; and lightly dampen it with your favorite cleaning product. Water works just as well. Begin to wipe down the surfaces and the dander should cling easily to the fabric. If you choose to only use a dry cloth or a dusting tool, there is a chance you will be repeating yourself more often than you would like. The dry cloth or duster can just cause the dander to spread throughout the room. When this happens you will find yourself going over what you have already done.

Pet Dander in your Air Ducts

It can also travel through the air ducts and just filter itself right back through your home. This approach if done properly can be fairly cheap. There are also different hand-held products that can help you with your furniture. A lint brush or a roller with rubber or adhesive sheets on it seems to work effectively.

Don’t Forget to Use Your Washer

Also remember to never underestimate the power of your washing machine. You would be surprised what fits in one. Bathing your pet frequently can be a plus. Since that is the source of all the dander it only seems logical. A proper bath and brush out with a de-shedding tool before you begin cleaning will help a great deal. Repeating this as often as you feel necessary should do the trick.
