A kennel can have the greatest staff and facility but if the air smells bad, most people will not leave their dogs there. Continually filtering the air with an air cleaner is a must. And here are 3 of the most important pollutants to eliminate.
Urine Odor—This has to be the number one turn-off when owners are trying to decide who to trust with their pooch. Most owners are already sad to be separated and maybe a little guilty about even considering not including the dog in their plans. The last thing they are going to do is leave there family member in a place that reeks of urine.
In a kennel you know that it’s pretty hard if not impossible to stop inside elimination from happening. Anxiety, fear, sadness, and illness in a canine can all lead to “accidents” from a dog that is otherwise house broken. Since you can control it, you can minimize it with continuously filtration with a carbon based filter enhance with an additive that can effectively remove the eye-stinging component—ammonia.
Losing the urine smell can significantly increase the trust factor between you and the client and increase the chances they will trust you to provide and clean and healthy environment for their dog while they are away.
Dander—Just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it isn’t there. Dander is dead flakes of microscopic skin that all dogs and warm-blood animals shed. This is nature’s way of replacing old skin with newer skin that is more able to protect their bodies against disease and infection.
Allowing large amounts to accumulate can trigger symptoms that include sneezing, congestion, constricted throat, watering eyes and more. It is the protein in the dander that is such a powerful allergen.
And even though you may not be able to see it, anyone who has sensitivity to it will know it’s there by the way their body reacts. If the air makes them uncomfortable, they will almost certainly not leave their pet in your care.
A HEPA or high efficiency particle arresting filter can remove particles as small as .3 microns in size. Dander, even though microscopic is bigger than a micron so it is easily removed by this type of filter.
By definition this type of filtration removes 99,997 out of every 10,000 particles that are .3 microns or greater. This would drastically reduce the number of allergens in the air making it a healthier place to breathe.
Bacteria and Viruses—Most of these are less than .3 microns in size, but because they travel by attaching to bigger particles such as dust, pollens, mold and mildew spores, hair and dander, they too are effectively eliminated by HEPA filtration.
Reducing their numbers will increase the health of dogs and humans alike. And clients who return to a dog who is happy and healthy in a place that smells and looks healthy will almost surely return again and again.
