Best Air Purifier For Allergies, Asthma, & Multiple Chemical Sensitivity

In this episode of “Let’s Talk Indoor Air Quality,” we are joined by Debra Lynn Dadd, an internationally known consumer advocate on removing toxic chemicals in consumer products and the host of “Toxic Free Talk Radio,” to discuss air purifiers and what to look for when selecting one to meet your needs.  The program begins with a brief look at the two primary aspects of negative air quality, the source and the residual or airborne contaminates and pollutants in the circulating in the air.  This episode focuses on dealing with the chemicals in the air and what the advantages and disadvantages are of different technologies and product categories.  Debra shares what are some of her biggest concerns with indoor air quality are, how she has seen the industry change in regards towards air treatment, the new technologies that are helping combat negative indoor air quality, and what she looks for in air treatment systems and devices

What Chemical Odors Can Trigger your Allergies

headaches from chemical expsoureChemicals enter the body in many different ways, food, drugs, skin exposure, but we are constantly breathing and inhaling whatever is in our immediate environment through the air. Any harmful chemical that enters the body has to be eliminated. This process is carried out by a range of biological pathways and organ systems in the body. Some believe that chemical sensitivity develops when these body functions cannot keep up with the demand or are functioning improperly.

Chemical sensitivity appears to develop in individuals who are prone to have the more traditional allergies or have asthma, eczema, or other related conditions and are very sensitive to a wide range of chemical stimuli. Even strong smells may cause respiratory problems for an individual when they are dealing with an environmental illness.

 About EnviroKlenz

Business concept the words About Us written with chalk on blackboard

The creation of EnviroKlenz® was inspired by our Customers with multiple chemical sensitivities and environmental illnesses. We have been honored to be able to work closely with them and learn from their experience and feedback. Through their recommendations, we were able to introduce a product line that is both effective and safe for everyone—especially those with illnesses triggered by environmental exposures.

We have worked vigorously and diligently to test our products with MCS influencers and support groups to provide “Personal Environmental Protection for Everyone.” We look forward to continuing our work with those affected by Multiple Chemical Sensitivities, to provide resources and products that will help overcome the challenges of living in our toxic world.

The EnviroKlenz program is a process that addresses odors and chemical contamination in air space, surfaces, and on contents through a variety of products to collectively create a clean air environment.

Each EnviroKlenz product is made from various combinations of our proprietary metal oxides powders. These earth mineral powders include our proprietary NanoActive® Magnesium Oxide (MgO), Zinc Oxide (ZnO), and Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) materials. We combine them to achieve the right balance of active components to suit the desired application.

air purifier to remove vocsThe EnviroKlenz® Mobile Air System improves your personal environment air quality by removing chemical odors, fragrances, VOCs, particulates, and allergens all in one process. The patented EnviroKlenz technology neutralizes chemicals, pollutants, and fragrances while the high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter removes harmful dust, particulate, allergens, pet dander, and more.

The process utilizes EnviroKlenz technology in the multistage filtration treatment to adsorb, neutralize, and eliminate chemical pollutants coming from a broad array of sources while removing airborne particles such as dust and miscellaneous debris to improve indoor air quality. The processor moves air through a polyester filter pad, an EnviroKlenz Air Cartridge, followed by HEPA filtration. What makes the total process unique is the use of the EnviroKlenz advanced chemical treatment technology for the control of odor-causing molecules and a broad array of hazardous indoor pollutants.

These unique and advanced manufacturing approach greatly enhance the beneficial neutralizing properties of the earth minerals by turning them into an active form while retaining their inherent safety characteristics. When EnviroKlenz compounds come into contact with harmful chemicals and vapors, the earth minerals’ receptors capture the bad chemicals. The manufacturing techniques are designed to facilitate, enhance, and add to that process. EnviroKlenz’s earth minerals more efficiently capture and destroy the harmful chemical through a process we call “adsorptive neutralization.”

EnviroKlenz has increased surface area, unique morphology, high chemical reactivity, and high porosity, all contributing to the enhanced adsorption and neutralizing characteristics. EnviroKlenz has the ability to not only contain, but to also chemically break down a wide variety of chemical compounds. This technology has been tested and certified for a broad array of chemical pollution mitigation including the highly toxic chemical warfare agents. The technology has been tested by the following laboratories for chemical breakdown and neutralization applications:

  • Battelle Memorial Institute
  • Edgewood Chemical Biological Command
  • Coal Mines Technical Services
  • Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW)

The EnviroKlenz® Process Overview

research word written by hand on blackboard

The EnviroKlenz® Process is the scientifically and field proven choice for the safe, rapid, convenient, and cost-effective restoration of indoor spaces from toxic and irritating chemical air pollutants.

The EnviroKlenz core chemistry (the “Product”) irreversibly captures and neutralizes a broad range of indoor air pollutants. EnviroKlenz works by “adsorptive neutralization.” As EnviroKlenz comes in contact with chemical pollutants in circulating air or on surfaces of materials, the Product’s chemistry 1) irreversibly attaches to and reacts with the pollutants, and 2) destroys/neutralizes the pollutant. The irreversible result is a benign, environmentally safe byproduct and elimination of the unpleasant and potentially dangerous pollutants.

To be effective, the Product must:

(i) come into contact with the chemical pollutants in the air or on surface(s) within the enclosed residential, commercial, or mobile space,
(ii) be positioned to permit its contact at an air flow rate, contact time, treatment schedule, temperature, humidity, and/or concentration, as prescribed for the specific application, and (iii) be deployed in accordance with instructions detailed in the EnviroKlenz User Guide and/or instruction sheet, and other Product labeling.

EnviroKlenz has been tested and proven effective against a broad spectrum of hazardous chemicals and volatile organic chemicals (VOCs). When used as directed, EnviroKlenz will irreversibly adsorb and/or destroy the following chemical compounds:

Air Filtration Overview

Removal of hazardous pollutants from the air is an important application area with significant impact on human health and quality of life. Portable home air filters, personal protection respirators, and large scale filtration systems installed in buildings are examples of air filtration products widely used to improve air quality and prevent exposure to harmful pollutants. Air filters removing chemical pollutants, gasses, or vapors, are frequently used in facilities using toxic chemicals or in buildings where such pollutants may be present.

The majority of air systems only focus on particle filtration. These devices may use a combination of traditional Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) rated filters and high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filtration. Some devices add in solid sorbents, most commonly carbons, which capture air pollutants by means of physical absorption. Such filters have only limited removal capacities and often no destructive capabilities resulting in the odor chemical contaminates being released back into the environment which is a major drawback of traditional carbon-based filtration systems and the main factor limiting their wider applications effectiveness.
