Breathe The Best Possible Air For You And Your Pets


If you've been experiencing chronic, sometimes vague symptoms of illness, then it may be a result of the quality of the air in your home. Dust, pollen, mold, and other contaminants can linger in the air. Cleaning may not even help if you simply stir up the particles and breathe them in.

It may be that your pets are experiencing difficulties as well. Signs of allergies, respiratory issues, or general lack of thriving can affect many different kinds of animals within the enclosed environment of the average home. In fact, they may even be contributing to the problem through no fault of their own.

Indoor Air Pollutants

Pet dander is a common allergen found within homes, along with mold, dust, and dust mites. All of these potentially toxic particles can be reduced and some practically eliminated through careful cleaning and by keeping your HVAC system in good working order. Bathe pets regularly, change the HVAC filter routinely, and use a HEPA filter on any device that has air passing through it - from the HVAC to the vacuum. Breathing polluted air is never good for anybody, and since your pets rely on your for their care, giving them a healthy environment will always prove a worthwhile endeavor. It will mean healthier living for you and your family as well.

Good Indoor Air Quality

Good indoor air quality is more than just opening a window. Opening a window may not be a comfortable idea in winter, and during other seasons it simply brings in pollen and mold spores. You can create a sense of fresh air within your home by cleaning the atmosphere you already have available.

Reduce issues by not smoking, cooking only with non-Teflon pans, and removing much of the heavy dust-catching material like curtains and carpeting. Be careful of room deodorizers as well; some animals can be especially susceptible to the perfumes. Decluttering reduces the number of items that can collect dust or make cleaning more complicated. You can make this much easier for yourself by taking a few extra measures in the beginning. Afterward, your new routines will become more familiar for everyone involved. Pet health and people health could respond in ways you perhaps hadn't anticipated.

Your HVAC And Your Air Quality

Be certain to have routine maintenance done on your heating and air conditioning systems so that everything is in good working order. Systems wear down and sometimes it's such a slow process that you may not even notice that a problem is developing. Furnaces need to be cleaned and air conditioners may need additional accelerant added to improve system efficiency. Motors, filters, wiring, and safety features all need to be inspected from time to time. This will make sure that everything is working at its best. If storage items have accumulated around the system, they need to be cleared away as well.

Some Things You Can Do

Ask your technicians what you can do to improve the indoor air quality of your home. They'll know many tips that are unique to the living conditions, buildings, and even weather of your locale. Unblock fresh air intakes and allow the air to circulate freely. Adding an air purifier and/or dehumidifiers may make a significant difference as well.

Any homeowner can learn how to change the air filters on their HVAC system. Marking a calendar, or even setting a reminder on your phone, can help you remember to change those filters before they become clogged with debris and interfere with HVAC efficiency. Keeping the home clutter-free is a good practice for a variety of health reasons. Your pets will appreciate the space to play and relax. You'll appreciate the clean air and good pet health, as well as your own easier breathing.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
