Pets and Indoor Air Quality Discussed in New Online Video
The IAQ Video Network releases another educational video about important environmental, health & safety (EH&S) issues.
Although pets can dramatically add to the quality of life for many people, they can also create unique indoor air quality issues for their pet owners. Pet dander and proteins found in pet saliva, urine and feces can all act as an allergy trigger for sensitive individuals. These allergens can easily become airborne and due to their small size, remain in the air for extended periods of time.
“It is these allergens, and generally not the fur, that causes allergies,” reported Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates, the company behind the IAQ Video Network and the new public outreach video. “Fur can collect these pet allergens as well as other allergens found in typical household dust that can also trigger reactions. A pet can also create unpleasant odors in a home. In addition to pet urine and feces acting as a potential allergen trigger, their smell can create nuisance odors that could even lower a property’s value and be difficult to eliminate. We hope this new video helps to educate people about how pets can affect indoor air quality.”
